Are you having trouble with your laptop keyboard? If so, you may be wondering if you need to replace it. The answer depends on the type of issue you're experiencing. Apple or an authorized Apple service provider can repair eligible MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro keyboards for free. The type of service will be determined after examining the keyboard and may involve replacing one or more keys or the entire keyboard. But what if your laptop keyboard doesn't work at all? In this case, the problem may not be with the keyboard itself.
Instead, it could be due to a software issue. To determine if this is the case, we first boot your laptop from a flash drive containing Ubuntu. This is part of our typical laptop keyboard repair process, which also includes internal and external checks. Once we've completed our assessment, we can determine the extent of repair or replacement needed for your laptop keyboard. This range may vary depending on the degree of repair required.
If you take your laptop to a repair or replacement center in a timely manner, you may be able to reduce the intensity of the repair or replacement.
