SOURCE: Touchpad key 'sticky'

Hi Talderman, Are you referring to the ?mouse? button just below the touchpad? If yes, that is a common problem and could be the result of foreign material getting in-between the contacts or more likely mechanical wear from use. You can try cleaning the contacts but you will need to disassemble the laptop to get to the touchpad assembly which is part of the palmrest. It?s not a quick or risk free job and typically is beyond the abilities of most home users since it involves removing the LCD panel. Unless you have the skills, tools and have the ability to risk the machine I would suggest taking it to the local Dell authorized shop and having the touchpad replaced. If you decide you want to try let us know and I?ll post instructions on how to take it apart. By the way Ebay has the part for about $20?.. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate the post.

SOURCE: Some of the keys on keyboard stopped working
yes it is probably dead for some reason ..the probabil cause it is a contact for a area..and this is a used but a good price one ...that works ..
here are another if that one seams not on your taste ...among them are even new ones..
to actually change it have to remove the front part that covers the hinges and holds the buttons ..(see that it have spots to insert something on the F1 and f11 keys ) than remove the keyboard itself by pushing it a little toward the lcd..and is snapped in place and slides in a little...Than it has just a ribbon that removes by pulling the safety plastic ends a few mm out ...

How to remove keys from mk700 keyboard?

This works for most keyboards:

Take something sturdy and hard but not sharp, such as a butter knife. Insert it under the front of the key just a little way, don't force it. Pull upwards gently. The key should pop off. You can clean them with gentle dish soap and wait until they completely dry, then put them back on. If the key is still sticky, take it off again and use a cotton swap dipped in alcohol (not dripping--rub against the inside of the bottle so it's just moist) and gently swab the area underneath the key. I have cleaned numerous keyboards because I have kids who share my desk tops and kids are frequently sticky. :)

Shift and cntrl keys are not working .Please help em how to reslove the issue?

It might be that you have by mistake turned on the sticky keys on the system.
Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously
I would suggest you to check whether the sticky keys are turned on. Follow the steps mentioned below.
a. Click on Start and click on Control panel.
b. Click on 'Accessibility Options' and in keyboard tab make sure that there is no check mark near 'Use sticky keys'.
c. If there is a check mark then remove it and then click on Apply.
Also check to see if anything is stuck under keys - cleaning the keyboard using a vacuum cleaner (AT VERY LOW SUCTION) could help

Keys sticky on my pc keyboad

Depending on the keyboard, you may be able to remove the sticky keys to clean under them. This is typically caused by food or beverages being spilled into the keyboard.
If you can't clean the keyboard, or don't want too; hit Office Max or Staples. they typically have very cheap replacement keyboards.
If it is a laptop keyboard; you will have to find a replacement keyboard on EBay! or by model number of the laptop.

Shift key not working

You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.


**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

My dell xps m140 keyboard is making double letters

Letters may be sticky. Did you drop coffee, soda or any liquid on the keyboard? Does the letter key "stick" and come up a second after you release it?
You may need to clean or replace the keyboard. To be on the safe side BEFORE you do it, plug a full size keyboard on the back of your laptop and check if the problem goes away.

Dell insperon has sticky keys can i fix it

With sticky keys, that means that something spilled into the keyboard or the keyboard has not been cleaned in a very long time. Below are instructions on removing and replacing the keyboard. Once you have removed the keyboard, clean each of the keys and replace in the appropriate places. Follow instructions below for removal and replacement:

There is nothing geeky in knowing how to remove a laptop keyboard. You can do the same by following some easy to do steps. Please remember that laptops from different manufacturers are very different from each other, and the difference between two models from the same manufacturer might be too much to say the least. The process showcased below is for a Dell laptop. Before undertaking this project all by yourself, it is recommended that you go through the manual provided by the manufacturer or do so once or twice in presense of an authorized technical person.

1 Remove the keyboard bezel. Take a screw driver and put it at the slot of the bezel and using it as a lever pull off the bezel. Once the bezel is displaced the screws that hold the keyboard and the system-board together are visible.

2 Loosen the screws that attach the keyboard and the system-board with a screwdriver of appropriate size. Pull-off the screws once they are sufficiently loosened.

3 Hold the keyboard in your left hand and try to move it at an angle of 45 degree. You will notice that the only other attachment the keyboard has is a cable with a pin at it's end that fits into a socket placed on the system board.

4 Holding the keyboard in your left hand at a comfortable distance, pull the cable pin out of the socket in vertical direction using your right hand. Once the pin is out you will find the keyboard removed.

I hope this was helpful.

Some keyboard button not workin on dell laptop

Did you spill any liquids into the keyboard? If you did you may have damage the keyboard PCB and it will need to be replaced. One thing you can try to do is to first take a picture of the keyboard so you know where the keys go back to that you removed. Then use a small screwdriver to remove the non-functioning keys. Be very careful and do not use too much force or you may damage the key. Inspect the inner buttons and see if they are sticking. You can use a cotton swab or q-tip and rubbing alchohol to try and clean the inner part of the keyboard. Sticky liquids can cause the inner keyboard buttons to stick and mal-function. If the keyboard PCB is damaged you can either replace the keyboard or buy a usb keyboard to use on the laptop. The OS should recognize the keyboard after you plug it in.
