Borrow someones 'Dell' brand A/C adapter charger.
If that works then yours is bad. If it doesn't then it could be the battery, but more likely the main board.

take it to a repair shop to get it check and fixed. one problem is that if you put to much pressure on the key and then it gets stuck. you can remove the key and check to make sure that everything is holding it up fine and also make sure there is nothing under it all tiny particles since that can mess around with your keys. to do what I said above it must not be a built in keyboard since it will be messed up forever so for built in ones take it to a repair store and for regular ones do the part I recommended above about taking the key from the keyboard.

You should check your keyboard layout (path to it is OS specific). Or it could be that your AltGr (Right side Alt key) is stuck. In this case - cleaning your keyboard should help.

try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
you might have to uninstall your keyboard restart your computer then reinstall it
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboards you might see a yellow exclamation or question mark or red x you will need to update driver right click to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
or restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps

To clear the bios password on a Dell laptop or notebook visit http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Dell_Bios.php and order the Dell bios master password for $20 and they guarantee it to clear the set bios password. I use them often in my work repairing laptops.

This problem can be very frustrating! It is typically from you hand moving over the touch pad to type on the keys. It would be lovely if they weren't designed so. To reduce the problem change the sensitivity of the touch pad to a lower level so it is not as sensitive.

If you recently installed this and the keys have never worked remove the keyboard and ensure that the ribbon cable is fully seated and that the lock is all the way engaged.

If it had worked and suddenly no longer works, you may have to replace the keyboard. You can purchase the keyboard from Amazon or many other online retailers. Instructions for replacing the keyboard can be found here.

Hope this was helpful

The sound may be muted as is the habit of Windows. In the right bottom corner you will find an icon in the shape of a speaker. If it has a red circle with a red line drawn through it then the sound is muted. Please click on this icon and unmute the sound. Now you will hear everything.
