That would be a W.
If it doesn't work, you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Those keyboards really can't be repaired.
The keyboard is actually pretty easy to replace.

I wanted to factory reset the same computer dell inspiron 1721 but it won`t take the command


To restore a Dell Inspiron computer with a Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system to factory settings, users simply need to press the F8 key when the Delllogo appears. Then, they should select the "Repair your Computer" option from the advanced boot menu, which may require a password.

How can i connect my dell inspiron 1721 to my tv samsung led


If your Samsung TV has a VGA input then connect a VGA cable to the TV and the other end of this cable to the video port on your Dell laptop. Turn on your TV and select the VGA (computer) input then boot up your Dell laptop.and then the video data from the laptop will automatically divert to the TV.
You can toggle between the TV and laptop LCD screen by holding down on the Fn key and press the F8 key.

Dell Inspiron 1545 space bar, ''n'' and ''b'' keys suddnly don't work


There isn't any "Known Issues" that I am aware of with that model. Try re-seating the keyboard cable, see if there is any difference:

If no difference, contact Dell if under warranty. If not new keyboards are about $20 on EBay

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.
