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?
Has anyone attempted to replace the palmrest/keyboard assembly on their S XPS 16? I've done keyboards on older Dell laptops but this seems a bit more involved. The metal trim on the palm rest is coming up so it would be nice to have it replaced,
Well the black keyboard that comes on the 9400/E1705 is a tad bit too loud for my taste. I was thinking of swapping it out for the M1710 keyboard, if its any quieter. At least mine here on the 9400 you can hear a mile away if you're typing away, and the "Enter" key is especially noisy.
A few days ago I removed two keys from my keyboard (backspace and enter) because some liquid fell onto it. Fortunately I cleaned it and nothing happened until I tried to put the keys back: I really couldn't make them fit correctly. I already tried to look for tutorials for this specific model of keys (including the website laptopkey), but couldn't find any.
It looks like to me that the "backspace" might be damaged but the "enter" looks totally ok. But I'm really not sure.
i got an Envy 15 last week and i LOVE it! however i have a problem, the function keys along the top have some 'issues'
if i hold the 'fn' key and press them they work as F1 F2 etc as expected but some of them dont work as they should when pressed on their own!
The brightness, media, and screen selection keys work fine but the F1 key doesnt bring up help as it should and the f12 key doesnt lock the system! This is annoying as i use my laptop at work and lock it whenever i go away from my desk so pressing 1 key to lock would be very useful! The strange thing is, it worked fine yesterday but isnt working today!
Is there a place I can just download Windows drivers (Vista x64) for the Apple Wired Keyboard. Just picked one up for my notebook. I don't need the missing keys, just would like the function keys to work (Dim-/+, Task Switching, Media, Volume and Eject).
I recently purchased an HP 250 G2 laptop with no operating system (freedos) After Installing windows 7 home premium x64 I went to the HP support web page and downloaded all drivers, installed them and everything seems to work without problems.
The only problem is that the HP support page does not have any drivers for the keyboard and the outcome is that all the FN keys are non functional.
In device manager the keyboard is shown normally because windows 7 automatically installs drivers but these are not 100% compatible so that FN keys would be working.
it is very important to be able to use fn keys so that I can change brightness, sound level, and tun on/ off wifi.
Dell, is it possible to configure 1564 with a different keyboard? I even prefer the 1545 raised keyboard.
It's more old school (bb guy said it would collect dust under keys more), but it's easier to use. Does anyone know if the insp15z has a keyboard with raised keys?
Anyone else find the big flat keys harder to use? Is there some advantage to these, thus Dell made the change? I wasn't wild about the Sony chicklet style either. Lenova seemed easiest to me of the ones I tested in BB.
I have a HP K2500 Wireless Keyboard which purchased arond 3 months ago and for some reasons now I can't use the keys y,h,n,m,j,u,5,6. i changed the batteries several times and I tried to test it other computer and laptops and it is still not working.
I struggled with this on 2 occasions. I had found the answer once and couldn't remember the second time around. In searching I found many do not know how to use keys that do not appear on your laptop physical key board. The following info at least works on a Dell XPS 14Z. Let me know if this works for you.

I have an HP Pavilion dv7 -4053 and noticed this week when entering data into a works database that my right arrow and down arrow no longer respond, up and left work fine. checked drivers etc. Tab had not been responding but is now working.
It's been over a month since I purchased my unit from Dell Malaysia and just yesterday I faced this very unusual problem with my keyboard. Keys 6 7 y u h j n m were not functioning. Did any of you experienced the same problem?
I am currently here in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and in case any of you knows how I can manage to avail Dell's warranty service from he I would love to hear from you.
I've owned and used dozens of laptops in my day, but never have I come across a keyboard that refuses to let me have the key. Usually I can wedge my fingernail in under both sides of the key and just "pop" it off .....
I have an acer aspire 1355lc the keyboard does not register any keys when typed and if I connect an external keyboard to the unit weird thing happen. Uppercase becomes lower case the numeric pad does not work and the function keys do not perform the correct function.
i've recently just repaired the jack connector for my hp pavilion dv6000. I put it all together today and my keyboards playing up. Quite a few of the keys arent working. I've checked the connection for the keyboard and its pushed in as far as possible.
HP 14 Chromebook product # F0H08UA keyboard doesn't work for the numeric keys 1 through 4 and 7 through 0. Particullary unhandy as I use some of these numbers for my password. Problem started 7/15/14. Worked as expected in the AM but now do not register this PM. The On Screen entry method works but not the keyboard! All other keyboard keys seem to work as expected. No error messages and no recent changes made to this Chromebook 14.
