Keyboard and touchpad oddly responding - 2010 MacBook Air 11
My sister gave me her old end 2010 Macbook Air 11" (A1370) to spruce up, telling me the battery was not working anymore. She has been using it for months ( !! ) plugged in with a malfunctioning battery inside...
I opened it, took a look at the battery reference and ordered a new one.
While waiting for the A**z*n delivery, I made a clean install of El Capitan. After using it for a bit, the keyboard stopped working, typing only numbers and blank spaces while the touchpad was only right-clicking.
I am 100% sure no liquid was spilled on it. I opened it up and noticed the battery had swollen since my first opening.
Could it be possible that the battery damaged the keyboard ? Is replacement the only option available for me ?
Thank you for your answers,
Is this a good question?
