Question about Dell SK8110 Keyboard

1 Answer

The keyboard has gone crazy

It appears that some buttons have been pushed by accident, and it is causing my keyboard to think differently.

When I hit the space bar, it thinks I am hitting enter. When I hit the backspace, it takes me to the previous page.

What do I need to do to undo what I did? Thank you.

Have you recently spilled something on it? I know that sounds silly, but I've done it in the past and the only way to fix that is to get a new keyboard! If not, try taking a qtip and popping a few buttons off of the keys you're having problems with and wiping away the dity/grime/whatever is on there that's clogging its "brain"

Space bar causes a"google chrome"window to open?


Try a different keyboard. If it does the same, then the issue is not with the keyboard but with some malware program that has infected your computer and causing it to do this.

Space Bar Not Working


Have you gone into the device manager and trying to update the driver? If that's not it, try uninstalling it and shut down and restart the computer? It will reload your driver for you. That's all that I can think of.

The G tab came off of my Dell Studio 17.


on the bottom of the key there is little holders and what happens is when you push the key button onto the tactile that goes underneath it, it will snap into place, problem is if any of the little holders underneath the key button or any part of the tactile that it snaps onto is broken then it won't go on properly.

I think that is whats going on here, if your hearing it snap into place but it won't stay on then there is something broken between the tactile or the keyboard button. Your best bet is to get another keyboard probably if you can't get that button to stay on.

Computer keys only sporatically hit


First, I suggest you unplug and plug the computer connector several times to 'wipe' the pins.   If that made no difference, I would borrow a keyboard to try on your system (or buy one; they're cheap).
The electronics that receive input from the keyboard haven't changed for almost three decades but it was contained in a single-purpose chip that has long-since been integrated into a single IC that handles such 'legacy' tasks. Just as it occasionally happened years ago, the simple circuit can fail whether or not it is in one chip along with other functions.
You might try going to the Control Panel and open the Keyboard section and use the space provided for checking the repeat rate to see if the problem is noticeable there too but all it offers is setings for delay before starting to repeat and the repeat speed.
