The period key on my laptop has not been working for months now. I'm having to copy and past periods when I need to use them. I tried to replace the key, but it seems as though the connections underneath are messed up. Any suggestions on where to start to solve this problem?
Replace the keyboard with a new one - they should run in the $25-30 range. One source: www.parts-people.com.
You can either keep up what you do now, have the keyboard replaced, write one long sentence, or buy a new laptop.
I'm sorry that you need to make that choice. I know of no way to fix that yourself.
