Laptop Keyboard Problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a hp pavilion ze4125 laptop and just recently the keyboard has started acting up. Sometimes I have to hit a key 3 or 4 times before it is printed to the screen. It doesnt do it all the time the next time I use that key it might work right away. Anyone have any ideas? Should I take apart and clean or what? The laptop isnt really that old....

Thanx in advance

i wouldnt recommend taking the board apart. Check with the manufacturor to see if the laptop has a spill tray. If it does, check to see if its good enough to clean it with water. I read an article about how to clean a thinkpads keyboard - they have spill trays and they tell you to pour water into the spill tray and drain, then to leave it to air-dry.
