New keyboard maybe?

  wolfie3000 18:51 17 Apr 2006

Just noticed that some of my keys on my keyboard are fading away badly,

especialy W.A.S.D. must be all the gaming,

Can i replace the keys or does it mean a trip to a pc shop for a new kayboard?

Have you tried e-bay? I`ve got a new keyboard from there quite cheaply.

Im very tight fisted with money if theres a way of painting on new letters i will do it,

As for ebay it would be easier to buy a new one from a shop as we have one here about five minutes away.

What about using a small engraving tool, then with a fine brush paint the bottom of the groove white.

how much will it cost hzhzhz?

I dont wanna really fork out alot of money if i can help it.

Has someone got an engraving tool you could borrow,perhaps one of those Dremmel thingys. I took a keyboard apart once, I wont do it again. There were springs and bits all over the floor. They all went in the bin.

managed to solve the problem a buddy of mine had a spare keyboard so i asked him if i could borrow it and he said "take it i dont use it" so problem solved,

Thanks for all the advice.
