Macbook keys are not working

Ask a question Casy - Latest answer on Sep 15, 2016 05:08PM
Hello,
I have an older computer, one whose keyboard is ATTACHED, and some of the keys aren't working. I tried taking them off and cleaning them, but still -- no result. To be specific, the number keys from 4 to 9 aren't working (that is, 4-5-6-7-8-9). These are the only unusable keys on my keyboard, and I kind of NEED to use them. The keyboard viewer does however work, but it takes too much time -- when writing an urgent email, for example.
Please help!

did you try using a external USB keyboard?

No, because 1) there aren't that many Apple stores where i live 2) wouldn't that mean not using the keyboard attached to the computer?

you do not need to buy an Apple keyboard - any USB keyboard should work.

You probably have a mechanical or electrical problem with the broken keys. There is no magical software download that's going to fix it.
