Keyboard problem on dell c600 laptop

Dudes,

Help me solve my keyboard problem, some of the keys like "space bar", "n", "b" and "/" won't work. Before keys like "z" , "x", "c", "v", "m", ",", "." will alternatively have the same problem with those keys I first mention. My OS right now is Win XP. If I will use usb keyboard all the keys will fucntion very well. I try to uninstall its driver yet the same problem happens.

Hope you can help me this.

Thanks.

Take the keyboard out and blast it with compressed air or a clean, dry soft paintbrush, if the keys still don't work your looking at replacing it for a new 1, the product code for the keyboard is underneath the keyboard itself

Keyboards are devices that can fail as easily as any other part of the machine. Even more so since there is the human intervention (finger) factor. The space bar is a heavily used key.....the SHIFT and question mark - not so much. You probably just need to replace the keyboard in the device.

B n and space bar keys are not working


krishna,
You can try popping them off and blowing the dust accumulated from underneath. If that does not work you may need to replace the keyboard.

I have to push real hard to get the space bar to work. I have a Dell inspiron1520. It has done this before and it got better...It happens after I shut the laptop.


I have a collection of Dell laptops dating back to the '90s, and I've experienced this problem with a couple of them. What I found is the problem is related to the space bar becoming partially detached from the keyboard mechanism. this is usually because the plastic clips on the spacebar key is broken, or slipped off the mating plastic piece on the mechanism. Is one part of your space bar loose or floppy? If so, you can try to gently push down on the loose end to try an get the clips to snap into the mechanism. If that doesn't work ...
I haven't taken my space bar off, but you should be able to gently lift it up with your fingertips, or by using a small plastic scribe, and separate the bar from the mechanism. Look at the clips on the bottom of the key to see if any are broken or missing. If so, you can contact Dell and see about getting a new keyboard, since it should be under warranty. I just did that with a Studio 1537 that arrived last week with a broken Control key. Dell Fed-Exed a ney keyboard immediately and it took mayby 10 minutes to install once I unpacked it.

Dell Inspiron 1545 space bar, ''n'' and ''b'' keys suddnly don't work


There isn't any "Known Issues" that I am aware of with that model. Try re-seating the keyboard cable, see if there is any difference:

If no difference, contact Dell if under warranty. If not new keyboards are about $20 on EBay

Left side of space bar on Dell XPS M1330 difficult to use


I had the exact same problem and contacted Dell support. They sent a tech to swap out just the keyboard. I have a feeling these keyboards are not of the highest quality as I do have some issues with the Ctrl key now. But it's much less annoying than the broken spacebar.
