The backspace key was the first to go. It was not much of a hassle at first, since by hitting the arrow keys combined with the delete button, I was able to work around the problem. But soon enough, most of the keys on the upper right corner of the board stopped working altogether. I tried every DIY thing I could but nothing worked. I finally gave up and decided to get a mini usb keyboard from cd-r king.
Don't let the small size fool you. The really tiny keyboard had everything a standard keyboard had! Typing could be a bit tricky, though, because of its size, but as long as it works and isn't adding bulk to my netbook when stuffed inside the laptop bag, I could live with that.
It even came with its own retractable usb connector.
I thought about buying a new keyboard for my netbook, but that would set me back P2000. I wasn't willing to shell out that amount on my seldom used back up laptop just yet. So, for P800, I opted to get this instead. Ergo, my netbook is up and running once more. Thanks to this mini usb keyboard, surfing is once more anytime, anywhere.
