    Hello all

    My family has been using HP computer for five years and the keyboard (which came with the HP) doesnt work right, its just ticking me off.

    the left shift key sticks when I press and the spacebar needs to be struck fairly hard to work.

    I've cleaned under each key and I vacuumed it as well, plus wiping down each key, yet both the spacebar and left shift key continue to not work right.

    Is anything I can do to fix this or am I stuck (pun not intended)

    Tom

    A new keyboard is all you need. I still have 486s, P133, P166 and a couple of PIIs that I still use. If they do what I need them for then I see no reason to upgrade them yet.
