Help! Daughter's 6 month old tiny laptop keyboard not working. No matter what we type it has no effect. Rest of machine seems ok. (Best bit is tech help at Tiny say restore sys using the restore disc. This says press R to start- but keyboard will not type. Morons??)

Has a laptop got one?

I was going to recommend that you buy a bigger one if it's dead tiny (sorry).

Oops must learn to read

Try plugging in an external keyboard most laptops have a port for this.

Then you can try the restore suggested by tiny but back up all your important files first.

Then again I did what a sensible person at Tiny tech said, and blew on my battery connections!!!
And it worked.

Are all tech lines 50 per cent useless?

Just to say I get really annoyed at tech lines advising reinstall for just about everything!
They haven't a clue and worse don't care.
Agghhh again!
