How to fix the following issue? I have a Dell laptop with all the hardware intact until now. Recently, I observed that there is an issue with the function keys. Especially F1 to F5. I need to press them hard some times and some times have to even change the direction of press. I am managing it with on screen keyboard now. I do travel a lot and hence laptop is a compulsory requirement. Can this be a driver issue? I am yet to get an external keyboard to check, still, it doesn’t help much. How to replace the laptop keyboard? How much does it cost? Where to buy? Will it work with new keyboard or there can be other hardware issue as well?
