  1. My laptop fell on floor. It did not real damage; however, now my keyboard behaves a little erratic, meaning it behave like some different letters and the return button sometimes.

    I have built a computer before. My question is, is it safe to take it apart incase it has moved a little to move it back, or if a key button has moved?

    Kind regard tech land.

    Maybe the keys were a little loose and the underlying rubber pads are not aligned with the "outside" keys?
    if you can have the laptop keyboard checked/aligned (for a minimal fee) would be wise.

    in the meantime, if you agree with me, you can use a cheap usb keyboard as a temporary fix for your keyboard problem.

    If you've opened a laptop before - - go ahead and check the cables are well seated. If not, they can be a tad challenging . . .
