Hi,
As told if you have already put in the new keyboard and still the problem is there, it could be the problem with the motherboard connector. To pin point the problem , connect an external keyboard to the USB port of the laptop. iIf the same works good . The motherboard is the point of failure .



Thanks

What is the problem why the arrow keys functioning differently.


Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer.

Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard


Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.



Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector.


The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard.


Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen.

You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.



Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.


Clean Under Desktop Keys


Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working.

Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key.

Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.


Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key.


Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs---other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.


Position and press down on the key to snap it into place.

Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.


hope this helps

I have a dell inspiron 1525. the 2 w s x and caplock keys no longer work. any idea how to fix it?


Keyboard is stuctured in a matrix.
some keys fail together as part of the matrix
you could try pulling the keyboard apart and seeing if you can reseat the connector (may have been stretched)
Really however the price of keyboards are you really that keen?
If PS2 connector just check no pins have been bent.. long shot really.

Keys CDE3 are not working....all others are fine


take the keyboard out, there are about 8 screws (depending on how many have fallen out) then you can pry out the keyboard with a small screw driver from front to back, it comes out fairly easily.  The keyboard is connected with a pull out 15 (maybe more, I didn't count them) connector and a mouse connector,  the mouse connector is a ribbon that clips in.  On the main keyboard connector look for corrosion on the 4th or 5th pin in.  clean the pins with a standard pencil eraser then blow the eraser bits off with a can of air.  This worked for me, my cde3 keys are back.

Dell inspirion keyboard 1420 replaced new but not working


Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down. Good luck,, ParrotHead PC Repair

Dell inspiron tochpad only works by holding down key on keyboard


It is likey the connection for the touchpad has come loose. As this connector is under the keyboard it would make sense that putting pressure on the keyboard causes it to work. If you are comfortable with removing a few screws, refer to the service manual on Dell's website on how to remove the keyboard. You will then see a ribbon cable connected to a plastic mechanism that secures the cable to the connection on the motherboard. Simply slide the top of the plastic mechanism forward or back to release tension on the ribbon cable, make sure the cable is straight and all the way forward, then slide the mechanism back into place and you should be okay. If you are not comfortable with removing anything, any computer repair shop should be able to do this for you relatively quickly.

Not worth repairing, if one key is faulty, most likely others will follow, get a new keyboard.
