Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Keyboard - NK750

1 Answer

Some keys unusable, some need to be pressed hard

Dell Inspiron 1521: My 'k', 'tab', 'capslock', and '~`' buttons have stopped working. (Using external keyboard now) I attempted to fix the 'k' and '~' by popping off the key and now I lost them.. but pressing down the small plastic piece underneath doesn't work either. Also, some keys on the left side (Q A W E S D X) of the keyboard need to be pressed down a bit harder than other keys to work. This is probably because I spilled a small amount of iced tea (Stupid, I know) a few months ago. Is there any way to fix it? Or should I just have it taken somewhere to be replaced? - If so, is that costly? Thanks, Mia NYC

Cap lock download


Some Keyboards have the option to display capslock on screen. To check if you can, try this
  1. Open Control Panel. In Windows 8 you can access it by right clicking the bottom left of your screen, and clicking Control Panel.
  2. Double click Keyboard. The Keyboard settings panel should pop up.
  3. If you see a Keyboard Settings tab near the top of the panel, click it, and see if there is an option to display Capslock on screen.

You can try this 3rd Party software :
CAPSLOCK Notifier 1 1

Alternatively, Dell provides a driver to display capslock on screen, however it is for a different keyboard model, so I am not sure if it will work with yours.

Inspiron 1521 will not power up


I'd say that you have exhausted your options. You can try to isolate the power on problem by removing your your memory modules, hard disk drive and see if it at least stays powered on. Here is a link from Dell for your laptop's manual:

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 5160 wont turn on


I would suggest that first try running the psa test on ur system which could b done by press and hold FN key and power button together and leave it as soon as u see anything on the screen or any led in case u get any error code or beep sounds then it has to do with hardware and u ned to contact dell in case ur system is still under warranty.which lights do u see come up when u press the power button.I guess u r talking abt the led's for capslock , numlock and scroll lock.try reseating the memory module from the system and try running ur system on one memory chips and vise-versa because it seems that may b the prob is with the memory sticks.
in case u want manual for removing the memory sticks try using support.dell.com and u would get the manuals from there.
