There are individual tiny switches under each letter. When the letter is pressed it sends an electrical signal to the keyboard controller and the CPU to register which key was pressed. Liquid under the keys will short out the switch so it does not send out the signal any longer. You need to get it repaired by the manufacturer or local PC repair shop.

I'm working on a Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop with Word 2003. When I type " I get @ appearing and vice versa - they have exchanged with each other. What have I done?


Did somebody remove the "key-caps" and switch them, as a "prank" ?
The order of letters on the keyboard is: EXCLAMATION, AT, OCTOTHORPE, DOLLAR, PERCENT.

Or, check the "keyboard input language". Windows allows for different keyboards, such as Norwegian and German, that have different keys in different places on the keyboard.
Switch to "US English".

Dell inspiron 1300, g and h keys suddenly stopped working. have removed keys and cleared dirt. key goes down but nothing happens. if (in microsoft word) i hold both g and h down and tap 'f', 'j' appears!


If an external keyboard functions normally, then replace the keyboard. If the external keyboard has the same issue, then most likely a setting in the regional and language settings

Spacebar not working on dell inspiron 1501 laptop


ensure no liquid has spilled on it.
remove keyboard (should be perhaps a screw on the bottom to undo, as well as clips around the keyboard on top, slightly hidden... search for "how to remove keyboard" on your model) -be very careful as the cable connecting the KB to computer can be fragile. Now try removing and then re-connecting the cable.

Probably none of this will fix it (if the KB wasn't wet and then dried now, by a miracle ;) and you will be able to find a very good price for a used, or new, KB online! ..for the time-being, use an external KB.

Keyboard space bar


only two possibilities, first is the rocker springs at each end or the bar are causingit to not make contact. or the bubble switches under the keyboard. I had a similar problem on an inspiron 6400 and I had to VERY CAREFULLY remove the keyboard,then the button to reach the bubble switch which had lost the plastic bushing that covered the shorting contact, good luck given the insane price that dell wanted for a new keyboard fixing it myself was the option.
