    BIG TIME!
    Or more! And yes you can replace the keyboard on a laptop.

    1) Most laptops will accept an external keyboard. A USB keyboard should
    work for most modern laptops.

    2) bad keyboards can be replaced.
    a) get a new keyboard from the company.
    b) look for a keyboard for your model on e-bay
    c) look for a broken laptop of the same model. Perhaps a broken
    screen. You may be able to pick one up cheap.

    3) some keyboard problems can be cleared up by putting the laptop on its
    side and cleaning the keyboard well with a typewriter cleaning brush.

    Good luck.

    I would be surprised if the laptop in question didn't use a membrane
    keypad. I haven't seen a membrane keyboard fail with a shorted key but
    it may be possible. WD40 is the last thing you would use on this type
    of keyboard.

    Perhaps the OP can open up the laptop and determine (if possible) the
    type of keypad it uses.
     
  14. Blow compressed air. Use an external keyboard.
     
  15. I had an Armada that would generate "Backspace" randomly. Really
    irritating. No amount of cleaning would make any difference.

    Finally, I downloaded a remapping program and turned the backspace key off.
    I then assigned F12 to send a backspace when pressed. Worked good except
    when using remote desktop to control another computer. The F12 wouldn't
    send a backspace on the other end. I can't remember the name of the program
    though, sorry. I remember downloading two or three till I found one I
    liked. It worked niceley.

    Compaq Presario 2200 Keyboards cost £39 + VAT in the UK. Diiferent
    models are different prices.

    You keep saying that you can't get a new keyboard because it's a
    laptop. This is most probably not true. On most laptops the keyboard
    is removable; on the 2 DELL Latitudes I have it's almost trivial to
    replace the keyboard. Try searching for your-laptop-model keyboard and
    see if any vendors sell replacement keyboards for it.

    It could attack the plastic. I use silicone spray for sticky keys on my
    trusty IBM desktop keyboard. (20 years old and still going!)
    More than likely this won't help the OP, though.
