    So apparently, some of the keys on my laptop keyboard (A, S, D, 9, O, L, . ) are stuck, but I believe they are not physically stuck. When the first 3 keys are held down, they'd type but at a very slow rate and sometimes, I have to press them down very hard so it will thpe (the other keys are perfectly fine and they'd be typed at a normal pace). The last 3 keys wouldn't work at all. I've tried removing these keys and blowing the dust off and I've reinstalled the keyboard device from the device manager setting but nothing would fix the problem. Anyone can help me out? Thank you in advance!

    My laptop is Lenovo IdeaPad S410 Model 20301.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    You should check the keyboard cable is connected properly, the Video will help for that. If that doesn't help or you don't want to try it you can use an external Usb keyboard or even the Windows on-screen keyboard.

    The best option is a new laptop keyboard though, you could fit it yourself or try to find a specialist computer shop to do it.
