Broken keyboard repair for laptops — it’s a thing

If you own a desktop computer and your keyboard gives up the ghost, nine times out of ten the best and cheapest option is to go out and grab yourself a new keyboard. If you own a laptop you don’t get that luxury! 

But fear not. Broken keyboard repair for laptops is indeed a thing. And it’s a service our Sacramento nerds can provide quickly, reliably, and at a flat rate. If your laptop keyboard is broken or just not performing as well as it should, a broken keyboard repair (or even just a missing key repair) can get your laptop back in good working order — and usually these repairs are surprisingly inexpensive. 

So pull up a chair, grab your refreshing beverage of choice (being careful not to spill it over your keyboard) and let us explore the fascinating world of broken keyboard repair. Get ready to learn about what a broken keyboard repair looks like, how we can get hyper-specific with a missing key repair, and what you can do at home to keep your keyboard as clicky-clacky responsive as the day you unsheathed it from its pristine box and said “ooh.”

But first, a spot of housekeeping. If you’re done dealing with a distressingly dysfunctional “D” key, just give us a call at 1-800-919-6373. Or you can write to us via our contact form (trying very hard to choose words without the letter D in them). If you’re in Sacramento, we can even set you up with a broken keyboard repair service in the comfort of your own home. 

Keyboard software problems

First off, we have a bombshell revelation for you: Keyboards run on software. Even if your keyboard isn’t working at all, the problem may not actually be hardware-related. It could instead be that the software running it is glitching in some way. Even if you think you might need a missing key repair, your problem may actually be a purely software-related problem. Weird huh? 

If we don’t see obvious physical damage, our first port of call in performing a broken keyboard repair will be to carefully check the drivers and software supporting your keyboard function. Occasionally a software problem is a little more complex, however. If necessary, we’ll dig through your laptop manufacturer’s website to troubleshoot the problem for you. We charge a flat rate, so you can be confident you’re getting maximum nerd smarts from a local Sacramento tech at no added cost. 

Cleaning your keyboard

So let’s say we see nothing physically wrong, and we’ve ruled out software as a problem. The next step in our broken keyboard repair service is to give it a deep clean. Now you don’t need to be feeling self-conscious! Every computer keyboard will accumulate grime over time. This is no reflection on you!

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way here’s a kind of weird and surprising broken keyboard repair factoid for you. Properly cleaning a keyboard is actually quite hard. The nerd performing your broken keyboard repair will get to where you can’t with a careful application of compressed air. Even if we’re just performing a missing key repair, it’s amazing how often a blast of compressed air can dislodge a bit of grime that is preventing it from functioning properly.
