1501 keyboard only partly working - Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

Answers :

This could be due to some software conflict or the keyboard itself being bad. Make sure that you dont have the number lock key engaged. If the num lock is off thry running a keyboard test. First you'll have to power off the system. You need to hold down the Fn button (Located next to the CTRL button on the left hand corner) and then power on the system. This will take the system to the diagnostics mode.
\015\012After running a series of tests you'll be prompted to "Press any key to boot to the diagnostics partitions". Now you'll get a prompt to test the computer. You need to select the option and run a CUSTOM TEST on the keyboard. if you get an error on on the keyboard call technical support and get the keyboard replaced. If the keyboard passes the tests then it is a software issue. Let me know if you need checlp with that.

Monitor issues My Dell Inspiron E1505 notebook has some sort of loose connection. I have to wiggle the screen back and forth to get it to work. There are lines on the monitor and intermittently I have no mouse or keyboard function unless I manipulate the monitor by moving it around.
