Some keys don't work, but occationally do S531

2014-09-27, 16:21 PM

I've got an S531 Thinkpad Laptop that has some isues with the keyaboard.

I'm not sure if it is hardware or software isue..

 

When i start up the laptop, many buttons don't work (Enter, C, M, V, Shift, 9 possibly more).

Some times i can get them to work, either by pressing harder or repeatedly. Once they start working, they work fine, like they should! Some times they just start working after the laptop has been on for some time (time range between 5-30 mins)

 

Has anybody had this issue with their laptops? Is there any way i can fix this?

I tried formating the pc, and reinstalling (windows 8,0 and 8,1) but it still meems to be faulty..
