Although those are not the keys that typically go out first due to wear I suspect that the keys are just worn. Typically this type of problem starts off with a key occasionally not working unless you press it hard and progressing to the point where it doesn?t work at all. The fix will probably be replacing the keyboard which runs about $50 on Ebay (US layout). If you are adventuresome you can try removing the keyboard and cleaning the key contacts but be warned laptop keyboards are not designed to be repaired. Chances are fair that your efforts may cause more problems. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

I have dell optiplex 330 when i start it it need to strike f1 for boot f2 for setup and f5 for scanning


Hi,
There could be two reasons you are getting this error message .
1. The operating system has crashed and needs to be reinstalled
2. The HDD has gone bad.

Run the diagostics on the computer.

Restart your computer at the Dell logo , tap on the f12 key slowly 1-3 times.
Using your down arrow key on the keyboard highlight IDE drive diagnostics or HDD diagnostics.
Press enter .
Incase there is an error , the hard drive needs to be replaced , else the operating the system needs to be repaired or reinstalled .

Hi,
Restart the computer and when you see the Dell logo.Tap on the F2 key a couple of times. You would enter the system setup.

1. Use your down arrow key on the keyboard and select the option Drives
2. Hit enter to expand the same
3. using the down arrow key again select diskette drive
4. Tap the right arrow key to switch it off.

Save the same changes by tapping on the ESC key on the top left of the keyboard.

PS. In case you have a floppy drive on the computer check if the drive is empty.

Left and right arrow keys not functioning


check the arrow keys it it's also not functioning in the BIOS:
- restart the system and press F2 five times during the splash screen of the big blue DELL logo to go to the BIOS (System Setup). Then test the arrow keys.
- if arrow keys are also not functioning within the BIOS the the keyboard assembly needs to be replaced.
- if arrow keys are working within the BIOS then reinstall the chipset drivers and keyboard driver found in the Drivers CD/DVD that came with the computer.
