Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M65-S821 Notebook ?

QWER keys do not work, but the rest of the

\015 QWER keys do not work on Dell laptop Inspiron 1150, but the rest of the keyboard works. How can I fix?\015

Answers :

First thing to try is re-securing the keyboard ribbon on the motherboard. to do that on most dells its as simple as popping off the top strip where the power button is and then remove the screw holding the keyboard down and carefully pull the keyboard away till you are able to pull the retaining clip up and remove the ribbon from the motherboard. then reinsert it securely and push the retaining clip down. sometimes there are screws on the underside of the laptop that hold the keyboard on but ive never come across a dell that does that personally.

If re-securing the ribbon doesnt do the trick, then you are better off buying a keyboard off of ebay(usually between 15 and 20 dollars) than messing with the insides of the keyboard. good luck.
Sounds like a little something was spilled on that area of the keyboard. Luckily, the keys are easy to pop off. Use a tiny flathead screwdriver to pry under one edge and take them off. Then use a Q-tip with some rubbing alcohol on it to clean around the area and replace the keys. Don't forget to clean the keys themselves just to be sure. If you want to go all out, you can remove the entire keyboard, run it under some water, let it dry then replace it. Direction for keyboard removal can be found on the Dell site. I had to do that for my wife's laptop after our granddaughter spilled something. Let me know if you need any additional info.
