On Tuesday evening with no warning suddenly certain keys didn't work on my laptop keyboard. When I googled it and also receiving links from my dear friend, Sandra, I found that Windows 10 updates can cause these issues.
I checked all the relevant videos and followed the instructions but with no success! Eventually I closed up shop early yesterday and took my laptop through to Mo More Magic Computers in Estcourt, a town about 45km from my place of business.
Mo was most complimentary about my laptop but also pointed out that it has an embedded keyboard. This meant that he couldn't remove the errant keyboard and replace it with a new one at a minimal cost. He suggested an external keyboard which is connected to the laptop with a USB cable.
After removing all sorts of gremlins (Defender being one), and reactivating Windows for me, my laptop was good to go for another good while! Mo was also most generous towards me: for two hours work and the external keyboard, he charged me R100/US$8.62.
This is now my new office setup
Happy Friday to you all !
