Hello i think your keyboard is corrupted and it must be changed.

A computer repair shop can help you renew the keyboard.

It does not cost much.

Good luck

My foot dog will not pull the fabric as I sew? I'm having to pull it manually myself .. Anyone know how to fix this problem?


How old is your machine? Can you unscrew the feed dog plate and take it apart and oil it? Sometimes if you are doing lots of quilting/sewing it gets all stuffed up with fluff inside there.

My h key poped off i think its broke i there any


Hi:
Individual keys are hard to put back on a laptop keyboard, but replacing the entire keyboard is not too expensive, I have bought and changed dozens of them, and they are $15-20 on ebay, and not too hard to swap out.

I own this keyboard and love it but need several replacement keys


If you call Microsoft Supplemental Parts (800-360-7561 toll free USA & Canada) they will give you a fax (716-447-7330). All you have to do is fax them the following:

1) To: Microsoft Supplemental Parts (<- rep said this was important)
2) your first & last name
3) address
4) telephone number
5) email address
6) photocopy of the bottom of your product, with a setting clear and light enough to show the Product ID information on the mouse

We have a Gateway Computer that was purchased about 9 months ago. The letters on our new Keyboard are wearing off so much that the I is gone and others are showing great wear. We are retired so it is not...


Key's can be individually purchased, but after replacing a couple of keys it can get expensive.
Your best option would just to buy a new keyboard directly from Gateway, or from a place like BestBuy.
Keyboards where keyboards are as cheap as $20.

Laptop Key repair


I am not sure if BestBuy is authorized to repair Dell systems, but if they will take it, then they should be able to fix it. The fix will depend on the nature of the problem. If the key is simply poped out in some way, they may be able to re-attach it on the spot. If not, they will likely have to order the keyboard part from Dell, open up the notebook (or remove the keyboard) and replace it. On some computers this is easier than others. Most commercial lines of notebooks allow the keyboard to be replaceed easily by the end user without opening the case at all - just undo some latches and remove some screws, pop it out, pop the new one in, screw it down and latch it in. Some consumer systems (Inspiron is a consumer line) are not so well designed. It all depends.

Either way, BestBuy should be able to repair it. If you check with Dell first, you may find that you can even repair it yourself if it is designed to be a "user replaceable" part as i describe above.
