There are few keys in my laptop that are not working. I thought of replacing keyboard instead I bought a bluetooth keyboard. You can connect keyboard using the bluetooth service in your laptop. I hope new keyboard will cost you less than replacing old one. Because laptop parts always cost you more.

This work great even in Linux OS. But you need to install some additional packages to make it work.

You can also use the USB keyboard and attach it to the USB port. It will work fine as the default keyboard.
