Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?
Things under keyboard?
\015 Sometimes it seems like something is stuck under the key of my keyboard, if i press harder theres a click and it works fine. im thinking this may also be due to my cooling problem\015
Take the keyboard out and make sure this is no debris underneath it like little plastic pieces, possible screws, etc.\015\012\015\012If there is no debris there then with the keyboard out, press on the keys and if it still feels like there is something in the keyboard. then the plastic tactile under the key that is bad. They have a habit of going bad after so many times being pressed on. \015\012\015\012You might have several keys that are like this.\015\012\015\012With the keyboard out if it doesn't feel like something is underneath the keyboard THEN at that point it could be your cooling system depending on how its installed and how close to the keyboard it is.
Seems like it's just a cheap keyboard. The click is probably due to you pressing the button on one side, so it tilts, and that makes the button go heavier.\015\012Your keyboard is functioning just fine, and it hasn't got anything to do with cooling.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012Yannick.
