You can probably just get a new keyboard for it. Yu can find one cheap and easy by going to ebay and typing in keyboard for your particular laptop model. Or you can find one by going to your computer manufacturer's site. But Ebay would be cheaper. Keyboards on laptops are relatively simple to replace/ install. You could probably do it yourself and save yourself some money. But if you don't have time to, or just don't think you could do it successfully, and you are wanting to pay someone to do it, then the price ranges from repairer to repairer; but still, it should not cost you no more that $100.00 to $150.00, if that much. It could even be cheaper than that; i am just guessing. If we knew each other, I would replace it for free for you, as long as you bought the keyboard for it. But still, you could probably do it on your own. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have reformatted the disk & reinstalled Windows XP home edition on my Dell Inspiron 1300 (passing it on to family), but function key(s) including disk drawer open and battery level no longer...


yeah sounds like a driver problem. I dont tinkj its the keyboard driver though as dell sometimes uses the main board drivers to control Function Elements..

Update the drivers from here.. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid&SystemID=INSPIRON1300/B130

Just update all while your at in in case your using a generic driver.

Will 64-bit Wiindows 7 work on dell inspiron 1300?


Hi.
Dell only support this laptop to XP with drivers, I therefore doubt you would even get the 32 bit version of Windows 7 to work on this

Dell inspiron 1300, g and h keys suddenly stopped working. have removed keys and cleared dirt. key goes down but nothing happens. if (in microsoft word) i hold both g and h down and tap 'f', 'j' appears!


If an external keyboard functions normally, then replace the keyboard. If the external keyboard has the same issue, then most likely a setting in the regional and language settings

Dell inspiron 1300 laptop


There are individual tiny switches under each letter. When the letter is pressed it sends an electrical signal to the keyboard controller and the CPU to register which key was pressed. Liquid under the keys will short out the switch so it does not send out the signal any longer. You need to get it repaired by the manufacturer or local PC repair shop.

Dell Inspiron 1300 Keyboard Lag


There is a program that is bundled with Dell machines called the Dell Media Experience. It runs on startup and has been known to cause issues with keyboards and typing speeds etc..... I found that by turning this off via MSConfig the problems associated with my keyboard went away.
Hope this helps.
Start - Run - MSconfig - Start up - Untick PCMService. O.K and restart.

Water spill on keyboard


Hi KCJC,
normally what I recommend to do first is open up and take Motherboard out and blow it with hair dryer and expose it to sun for 6 hours(wholeday) to let it dry properly ...coz with every of my customer who don't do but claim that computer work fine will soon have problem in future due to oxide (coz under some IC or chips its still wet and it takes time to become oxide and when it does that mean short circuit).So
Incase anymore question you can post here.
goodluck,takecare.
