    Plug in another USB keyboard or a wireless keyboard.

    You might have to reboot the computer with the USB keyboard already attached. OR, you might be able to just plug it in an type. :uhm:

    Pop the M key out and clean the switch it’s attached to.

    Thank God for this place!!

    Found an old usb keyboard, plugged it into the laptop and am up and running again.

    Got all sorts of major crap happening here in the next few days, the last thing I need is to have the laptop spit the dummy.

    Thanks Chiro, Knite and Wambli. You guys just saved my head from exploding!!

    Stop it, I might run out of keyboards :rotflmao:

    Btw, there is something to be said for not throwing old electronic crap in the rubbish bin. Found 3 usb keyboards in a pile of electronic junk stored in a carton.

    Glad you got that sorted out, and kept those old keyboards for 'just in case'! :up:

    The keyboard on my laptop gets very little use because I have used an external keyboard and a rollerball mouse since I got the computer.
