7 of my x240 Thinkpad keys (the Tab, left-Shift, y, t, Backspace, F5, Fn) are not responding (ie screen show nothing
after pressing keys): an full keypad costs about US$40 & quite a bit of work is needed to replace the keypad which
I'm not savvy to do: would the above help & which specs (10, 30, 26, ...) should I chose? Can't reach the seller.
I guess it's not just a matter of peeling off the plastic cap of each faulty key & replace the cap: something beneath
each of the buttons are not working, so would the buttons on sale above help? There are buttons of different
sizes that are faulty: above link didn't give me option to choose which keys.
I could use a USB keyboard but don't want to carry a bulky USB keyboard around, so fixing those keys is preferred.
Need to address my original question: is the above replacing components underneath the
keypads? It appears to be not just the caps. So need to identify if above is replacing
more than just keypads but components underneath the button that's faulty.
for a full eBay keypad at US$40 plus labor of US$100, I could have got another
refurbished laptop: I got that X240 for only US$185 (240GB SSD & 8GB RAM)
with Windows 10.
I can get a PC-support colleague who may be savvy to help & if he fails, then,
I'll fall back to an external USB keyboard: not much harm.
Btw, is there any freewares that could remap keys: say pressing Ctrl-u will give
me letter y, Ctrl-t will give me Tab?
