I was hoping someone could help me with my laptop's keyboard. I have a used Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437. The laptop had been getting VERY hot (the plastic underside started to melt once), so I bought a can of compressed air, took the laptop apart, and cleaned it out. The temperatures are miles better. However, after reassembling the laptop, I noticed that the keyboard wasn't working properly. Some of the keys would have system inputs when pressed, some wouldn't. This was fine, as I have a wireless keyboard as well, but I don't like using it. I disassembled it once more, cleaned it out again, and made sure the keyboard was connected properly. And it was.
So, for a couple days, I just used the wireless keyboard. However, I noticed that once the laptop gets warm, the keyboard works again. Say when I play Minecaft, my laptop will peak at about 72 degrees Celsius, and the keyboard works. However, not all the number keys and F# keys work. Just wondering if anyone has a solution for this.

P.S. - I'm running Linux Lite 2.0, if that makes any difference. Although I doubt it would, as this seems hardware-related.
