    Hi Forum

    I currently have a Clevo P150HMx laptop and It absolutely fantastic.
    The problem I have is that the plastic keys: Caps Lock, Exit, F1, F2 and F3 have gotten deformed and not clipping into the socket correctly.
    I have checked everywhere and I cannot afford to buy a whole new keyboard for R800 ($80).
    Any suggestions or anything would be great help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you post a picture? How did they get deformed? Did they come out? Are they hitting something so they can't be depressed?

    Maybe use a dremmel to reshape the key.

    Can you do $40? LINK

    EDIT: I looked into the listing a bit more and it seems fishy.

    @ajnindlo
    The keys are more melted than anything, so a dremmel won't help much :/
    I'm still uncertain of how it happened, but I left it on my table about a week ago and once I got back only those keys were deformed. The laptop did catch some sunlight from outside.
    Here are some picks:

    I see that keyboard is white unfortunately.

    Looks like a combination of sunlight and heat from inside. Might not be a bad idea to check your temps as well.
