Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook ?

Unresponsive keyboard hi, when typing on my dell inspiron 1545 keyboard, i sometimes have to type in letters more than once because the keyboard is unresponsive the first time i hit the key (as in, i hit the key but no text appears on the screen). This problem happens about once or twice a sentance. is this a problem with the keyboard or a problem with the internal mechanisms of the computer, and is there any way to fix the problem?


Answers :

Replace the keyboard. They're readily available on ebay. Also, try plugging a usb keyboard in & see if it still happens. If it does then forget replacing the keyboard. Instead you'll be needing a motherboard.
