    Both my daughter and I have a problem with keyboards in that the letters fade really quickly. This isn't such a problem with a desktop, but is an issue on a laptop. Apart from naming the condition "Acid Sweat Syndrome" ( ***), has anyone else had this problem and found a solution about how to replace the letters? Tippex comes straight off. Please don't say learn to touch type!

    The most common cause for this is the use of hand lotion. Probably more of a problem with women than men. Must be a pretty serious problem if it happens "quickly" (don't know what that means) and often.

    There's no magical fix for the problem. Replace the keyboard. Were you looking to put stickers on? Certainly wouldn't last. Or paint them all on yourself using craft supplies?
