It sounds as if your keyboard might not be connected any longer. This might be the result of a sudden jarring motion to the laptop, or a drop.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins2600/en/sm_en/keyboard.htm#1005330

Use the above illustration to lift out the keyboard and make sure the Keyboard flex cable is attached to the connector (scroll down at the site listed above to see illustrations of the cable and connector).

The same link shows how to connect the flex cable, if it is disconnected.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Inspiron 2650 Laptop keyboard is locked.

If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.

I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.

I hope this helps.

Hi my inspiron 1545 boots up and aks for a password. It will not let me go into f12 or f2 settings. when I type in anything at the requesting password screen I do not see anything being typed and then


you need to remove the cover of the laptop locate the password jumper.(near the hard drive, clearly labelled.) take what looks like a little cap off. push the power on button for three seconds. replace cap close laptop, replace cover, and your password will be reset. leave it blank, do not do this with laptop a/c power cord plug into wall socket.

Try a USB keyboard. laptop keyboard faults are common, the only real fix is replacement, it isn't too hard, just fiddly.

Keyboard want work


The keyboard is probably broken or the cable is loose (unlikely) from the motherboard. Does the keyboard work at all? at any point?

Try a external keyboard, usb for example and see if that works.

Try this:

Shut down, unplug the AC adaptor, removed the battery, and hold the power button for up to 1 minute to discharge.

Make sure there are no stuck keys.

Restart.
