My sony vgn sz330 doesnt hold a battery charge, i have bought 2 replacement batteries but they all do the same thing

Your symptoms point to two possible problems.

1. It's your charger that's the problem. Chargers can fail in one portion of their structure that charges the battery but the part that powers the laptop directly can continue to function normally.

2. Your DC Power Jack (the small hole where the charger plugs into the board) can be having the same trouble I described in the charger

When people bring a laptop to my shop with these systems I always try a charger first, the easiest and least expensive fix. If that doesn't work, I have to send the laptop out to one of several vendors on eBay that specialize in that repair alone. You just go to eBay and type "DC Power Jack Repair" in the search box and you'll have quite a few reapir shops to choose from. I've had 100% success with several different ones.

Good Luck

My Dell inspirion 2650 won't charge.

Try using a different power adapter. They sell for around $25 and up on the internet. Dell adapters burn out quite often.

Certain keys on my laptops keyboard wont register

Yep, I know this problem. Mine is similar, with a Dell. And on the Dell it appears to be caused by the cable from the keyboard to the laptop gets pinched. Gripping the laptop wrong causes the problem, and gripping it another way makes them work again. I fixed the problem and it stayed fixed for quite a while earlier - by opening it up, taking out the keyboard, then putting it back in. Back then the keyboard hardly worked at all, until I did that. I had instructions for doing this, and you'll need specific instructions if you are to do this. I found a set of instructions for something else that includes accessing the keyboard:
