Answers :

I think one of the first things you should attempt to do is ground the motherboard. I have been having several issues with my dell studio 15 and what I initially believed was it was a result of installing the latest vista service pack. I have since begun to believe the issue is deeper than one of software.

To ground the motherboard, perform the following steps:
1. Remove the power supply from both the laptop.

2. Remove the batter from the laptop

3. Open (lift the screen) of the laptop (with the power and battery removed) and press the power key as if you are attempting to turn the machine on. (this ensures that all power that may have been within any particular component will flow through the system and reach ground).

4. Plug the power and battery back in and turn on the PC.

See if those lights on the keyboard and top functional lights begin to work. This has worked for me, but I have not been able to get a good answer to what causes this.
