Dell :: Key On Keyboard Hard To Press Down

Jun 24, 2009

it feels like something is blocking my eject key (and sometimes my L-shift key). Nothing that I know have is fallen through the keyboard...

I'm guessing I can't take off keys from a laptop keyboard. Is the best course of action to call dell? I don't really want to send away my laptop, but I may have no choice...

It's a Studio 1555 if this matters

I currently have a XPS 15 (L521X, Mid 2012) that I use at college, and it's "p" key has been getting harder and harder to press. It's at the point where hitting it does not register any action unless I press down on it. Do I have to open the laptop up/take the key out? And how do I do this?

HP Envy 17 :: Keyboard Spits Multiple Keys With One Press?

Jan 17, 2014

Have an issue with the keyboard on the HP Envy 17. There are three keys that, for whatever reason, stopped working.
The "o" key produces zero, left key, home, period, 'o', and 'p'.
The 'L' key produces three, period, page down, six, 'l', and semi colen.
The '.' key produces '2', '5', end, '4', period, and forward slash.
This happens every time the key is pressed. If held, they produce the above, then the last key repeatedly.
All other keys perform as expected. If a seperate USB keyboard is used, it works fine.
I've tried updating and rolling back the BIOS, as well as 'resetting' by removing all power for a few minutes. Have also uninstalled the driver, then installed the latest.
I also purchased a replacement keyboard from HP (part #720244-001) and installed.

Acer :: AA 7520G Boots Only If You Press Hard Next To The Touchpad

Nov 21, 2009

My Acer Aspire 7520G suddenly refused to boot, leaving blank screen only. No boot logo or anything. However, after googling around a bit, I found one thread with a solution, which is to press hard around the touchpad, and to my big surprise it did indeed work.

So does anyone know what's wrong with the computer that behaves this way? I never found the cause, and before I start disassembling the laptop, it would be nice to know what to look for. (Can't take it to the service as warranty expired a couple of months ago)

Dell Studio 1737 :: When Press Certain Keys On Keyboard Adjacent Keys Activated As Well As The Key Itself

Jan 25, 2015

I am having a problem with my keyboard on my dell studio 1737. When you press certain keys on the keyboard the adjacent keys are activated as well as the key itself. I've tried various techniques I've read about to correct the problem such as removing power from the laptop for an extended period of time and installing new bios drivers but nothing seems to work. From the information I can gather this is a common problem with this model of Dell laptop. What is the best way to correct this problem. Will replacing the keyboard correct this problem or is there some other problem causing the malfunction?

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Won't Turn On When Press Power Button

Feb 7, 2013

My laptop, an Inspiron 15R, will not turn on. When I press power button, it beeps 3 times.  Owner manuel says 3 beep codes mean possible system board failure - chipset error.  As luck would have it my warranty went out in December.  Does this mean the hard drive on my computer has crashed?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Use The Function Keys Without Having To Press Fn?

Jun 27, 2009

I recently bought the Inspiron 1545 and to be honest was actually quite struck by how simple everything was in the design. However there is only one problem that I found when I use the laptop. In order for the function keys to be used, I would need to press Fn+(Function Key) Eg. Fn+F1. Now obviously function keys are supposed to act like a shortcut key for certain activities. This actually defeats there purpose. Instead by pressing those keys without the Fn key, I would be able to use the multimedia keys and anything else on the keys with a white symbol on.

I was wondering whether there was any way in which I could swap round the functuion of the keys so that I can use the function keys without having to press Fn?

Dell :: A Disk Read Error Occurred :: Press Alt Ctrl Del To Restart

Jan 14, 2008

last night, I got on my desktop momentaily. Closed the laptop lid(laptop is still on) and placed the keyboard on top of the laptop so I can open the Linux gFTP program, connect to my sites FTP and run a full backup before I went to bed. No problem.

Slept about 8 hours, woke up. Opened the laptop LID to check email and forums, and I'm greeted with a BSOD. Great. Laptop is extremely warm too. So I soft shut down (holding the power button down) and the computer reboots itself.

Well, it takes a little while for the PC to boot, then I'm greeted with a.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: No Boot Device Found - Press Any Key To Reboot Machine

Nov 30, 2014

I have a dell Inspiron 15r 3537 i7 model with windows 8. I bought it 4 months ago. I was playing a game on it and it suddenly hanged. I waited for 5-10 minutes and tried to close the game but it wasn't closing and it was hung. I waited for atleast 15 minutes and I had no choice so I switched it off from the power button thinking that it will turn on normally. But when I switched it on it showed the dell logo and then it said

Checking media

No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine.

When I rebooted the machine, the same error came.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Would Not Charge - Press F1 To Continue Or F2 To Enter Setup

Jan 17, 2015

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 which, until recently, was working fine. 

This morning I, after a rebooted, I got an error message informing me that the battery would not charge and to press f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup.  I continued and booted into Windows fine but noticed it wasn't charging,  I rebooted to see if the error message would go away.   It didn't.

I booted into the BIOS, loaded the "optimized defaults" and rebooted only to be greeted by the same error message.  

There were quite a few posts with similar issues, so I tried a couple of the solutions to see if any of them would work(updating the BIOS to A12, rebooting with the battery removed and then replacing it, deleting the two driver under batteries in device manager, etc.), but none of them resulted in the battery charging though the error message went away.  

After playing around with it for a while, I noticed the following behavior.

1.  Initially, in the BIOS, it said something like "Your battery is temporarily disabled, please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature" .  After removal/reboot/re-adding, it reports it as healthy.  

2.  The AC adapter is reported as unknown when the battery is plugged in.  If I remove the battery, it is reported as 65W. Adding the battery results in it reporting as "unknown" again.

3.  If I am in Windows with the battery plugged in and not charging(as reported by windows) and I remove the AC adapter from the socket in the wall and plug it in again, the green light on the power brick glows for 5 or so seconds and the icon in the system tray shows charging. Unfortunately, it then turns off a few seconds later and the icon shows it running only on battery power.  

 I've seen quite a few of these posts, so I'm not expecting a definitive answer. As of right now, I'm running with just the AC adapter plugged in and the battery removed.  It works "fine" this way. 

NOTE:  This seemed to coincide with a run of windows update.  Prior to that, it was working correctly running on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 .  Either that, or it was just a coincidence.

HP 15 Lockups :: Touchpad Won't Move When Press Any Number

Sep 21, 2014

I own an HP 15 and i recently downloaded a game. when I opened the game and tried to play I was unable to press any button on my keyboard and move my touchpad at the same time. An example is that I was playing a first person shooter and i was unable to walk forward and aim at the same time. The touchpad would not let me aim unless i would stop moving (not pressing the w key.) I figured it was the numlock being enabled but after spending 2 or 3 hours searching on how to turn off the numlock such as using the on screen keyboard and using a combination of fn+ another key and I still have not succeeded in finding out what the problem is.
Product name: HP 15 Notebook
