I have a Compaq Desktop with a Compaq keyboard. The problem is from Friday, all of a sudden the following keys do NOT work. (Keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 and 0).
What I have done so far:
- Took the keys out
- Cleaned the keys
- When I were to press the inner membrane with a pen cap, there is no result. So, I doubt that it is a problem with the actual key (which I have popped out). This, I checked by putting the 1(!) key into the 5 slot and it actually works.
How can I check if the connectivity or the sensor(?) (which is covered with a white membrane) actually works or if there is a genuine problem?
The reason why I am asking this is, it is kind of strange that a specific set of keys in a row does not work. I mean, I can understand if the entire row did not work or if there was 1 key in a row which did not work...but how can
` (~), 5 (%), 6 (^), - (_), + (=) work and the remaining keys not work?
