Disappearing Alphabet, Help!

I love my HP laptop, but the letters are disappearing off the keys! A, S, E, T, I, O, H, and N are completely gone. Y, U, C, and G are close behind. Any ideas as to what I can use to re-mark the keys? One friend suggested white-out. Any advice appreciated!! It's REALLY hard to knoW if you've typed in the right password or not. :-P

Well I must say it's impressive that you can post with half your keys missing! :-D Re-install your computer and if that dosen't work contact HP or the store where you bought your computer.

I would suggest a Sharpie marker. I think they have a special one just for writing on black. I also really like their metallic silver one. It writes on black, white and colors so it's more versatile. They're pretty easy to find in any store that sells markers and pens.

Gee! I might even have one of those somewhere . . . finding it is, of course, another matter! Luckily, they're not very expensive, and I'll be able to get one tonight. Thanks! Super idea!

On ebay or any hardware store you can get keyboard stickers, search on ebay keyboard stickers and you should find something like that. They are usually used for translating english keyboards into other languages like japanese, chinese or korean but im certain you should be able to buy them for english keyboards

First of all my greetings to you. next i would be very open to say to you that i am unable to understand your problem, is the writing of the keys are dissapearing? - if thats the case then i would suggest you to use a marker, but if the funcanality of the keys are reducing then i would say that you most probably have to change the carbon-layer of the keyboard. If anything else please reffer, will always try to help.
