My keypad is starting to wear out and it's driving me crazy!
I have hit the "P" and "L" keys so hard when I type something. Arg.


I guess that's what I get for typing "Pill poppin' lollipops" so much. *sigh*

2. I have a laptop, so that means I need a whole new computer.
Right? ;)

3. You just need to get your keyboard cleaned.
No pun intended. ;)

Seriously, it has dust, hair, etc under the keys. Take it to a pro. It shouldn't cost too much. :)

8. I hadn't realized you had a laptop!
I don't know......some folks here think you don't need a new computer!

But if you want one....go for it!

:hug:

7. Could you just plug in a new keyboard, I do that with my laptop.
I don't like the keyboard on my laptop.

10. That's not a bad idea.
Although like I said to Peggy my laptop has been acting weird lately, so I think it's time to retire it. :o

13. A computer is not like a VCR or toaster.
Most problems are not related to the hardware. Re-installing your OS would probably get you back to where you started from.

He has a hard time finding the ampersand sign.

He tells me, "If Pat Sajack let's you get the damn thing for free on Wheel of Fortune, you think it would be as easy as finding an elephant's ass on your keyboard!"

15. My right-clicker on my mouse doesn't work.
It's really effing up things, so I sympathize.
