Answers :

I had the same thing but on the left side. there was a pattern to mine, so i don't know whther there is to yours, but mine made itslef better. there might be a loosed wire or some dust in there. get it looked at before you replace the keyboard because it might just need cleaning.
You most likely have a defective keyboard. Call Dell Parts (800/372-3355 x5) and tell them the Service Tag for your computer (it's on the bottom) and they'll send you a new keyboard (and, if you're still under warranty, they'll fix it for you). If you ask them for a keyboard, be sure to ask them for the disassembly and re-assembly instructions to remove the old keyboard (there're lots of other small parts you'll have to remove to expose the screws that hold hte keyboard in place).
