Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

My home row keys (and only those 8) do not work.

\015 I have a Dell E1505 Laptop. Suddenly, my home row keys (and only those 8) do not work. I cannot even log in is administrator because my password contains letters located in the home row. Has this problem been seen before? Is there a simple solution, or will I just need to replace the keyboard?\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance.\015\012\015\012Will M.\015

Answers :

HI Will, sounds like the keyboard is shorting out on you. Get the keyboard replaced but before you do, take the keyboard out and then reseat the keyboard back into its place onto the motherboard just to be sure the keyboard is seated properly.

Unfortunately, this is most likely a bad keyboard and the keyboard will need to be replaced. In the meantime, you can use a USB keyboard in its place.
