 Sad Got a customers lappie here today. Apparently the cat puked all over the keyboard, some of the keys no longer work. Have got keyboard off, all nice dried cat puke underneath, will try to clean it up with some isopropanol. Nice job, yuk

B and N key still don't work, taken keys off and cleaned contacts, blasted with compressed air, rubber bits feel ok. Any more ideas John?

Is there any "mess" between the contacts themselves on the matrix? actually inside the keyboard itself, they often get blocked with "mess" and dont form a full contact.

I've had the keys off themselves and cleaned contacts and hit em with compressed air. Space bar doesn't work either

Replacing a laptop screen is a piece of piss and takes me about 30 mins tops, even someone with little know how can do it easily in an hour with pretty much no problems.

The Tosh I have with the non working screen, has had a new one fitted not so long ago so I'm taking a chance on the inverter board jj?

It does sound like it mate, the invertors dont last forever, Si Pie just recently replaced his, not many pennies at all either, less than 15.
