Precision M60 Keyboard Won't Work

I work for a non profit organization, and we recently had an organization donate several computers to us. Obviously, the computers have been wiped clean. I have a M60 that I was trying to install software on. The disk will boot up, but the keyboard will not appears to be locked. Is there a lock on this keyboard? or do we most likely have a bad keyboard on the computer.

    Since it is a laptop, I didn't even think about pluggingin another keyboard. I tried that and it works, so evidently the keyboard on the laptop is bad. Thanks!

Laptop New LCD Screen Cycling Colors

It's probably the wrong screen, cable ,or inverter; in spite of what the repair shop tells you .
Also, sometimes the cable gets pinched if not installed carefully, or the cable connector may need to be re-seated.
Is your laptop a Dell Precision M60 ? I'll see which screen it's supposed to have.

Dell M60 volume buttons

At the left of your power button, past the word PRECISION, there is a slot for a screwdriver. With the screen fully open, use that slot to remove the power and volume buttons. At the other end of the stip you removed will be the connector that connects the buttons to the motherboard. Reconnect it better. I had this problem too.
