    Absolutely. You won't get the same as one in excellent condition but you might be surprised how much you can still get. People buy broken stuff because they are adept at repairing things, because they want a challenge and don't mind failing, or because they need donor parts for another broken machine. You might actually be able to make more money by dismantling it and selling the parts separately yourself, but most of the time I don't think it's worth the effort unless you have a business setup to do it.

    The 'chinese' ones don't work from the start and the genuine ones fail after 12 months again, in my opinion it's not worth the money to replace it every year

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I will try them and see if they work and if not I will sell! It's a bummer overall as I don't need a new computer so I'm hoping I can still salvage this for longer.

    So it appears that I fixed the keyboard issue. Last month I took apart the laptop to remove the battery and obviously unconnected and reconnected everything. I also disabled the touchpad completely and changed touchpad delay to off as suggested by some. So either one of these or both fixed it as I did these at the same time. Most likely it's reconnecting the cables that fixed it.
