I just repaired two notebooks, an acer 5735z and a emachine E625, both with the same problem , unresponsive and running slow. the cause of both these notebooks being slow and unresponsive. The Keys boards .

Change the keyboards and they are running as if they have just come out of the boxes and being used for the first time

Copper,
I would have never suspected the keyboard. Thanks for the useful info.

I replaced a keyboard for someone recently on a laptop. The "F" Key came off, so they hot-glued it back on, and then they had to punch it really hard to make it work. Go figure. Hot glue.

Laptop keypads are the 'membrane' type, and can be susceptible to excess heat. They also are not well protected against moisture or debris intrusion!
Many keypad designs have a rubber "spring" under the key.. to keep the key pressure off the membrane surface. it can deteriorate if exposed to harsh chemicals, high temperatures or air pollutants.. like corrosive gasses or excess oxygen levels. Using 'hot glue' on a key repair? Not recommended, unless a very tiny amount is used. Best is the "crazy glue" gel. Again, a minimal amount. But eventually, the keypad will need replacement.
