Question about Dell Spacesaver USB Keyboard J4624 SK-8115 RT7D50
I recently bought a new Dell computer and it came, of course, with a dell keyboard. One day when I turned on my computer it was as if the keyboard had become frozen. I had reached the login screen of the Windows Vista startup and when I attempted to type in my password, the keyboard did not type. I tried t urning the numlock on and off but that too did not work. I shut down my computer and switched the USB port that the keyboard was plugged into. It worked fine! However after a while the same thing happened again so I switched plug-ins and it worked. This has repetedly happened no matter what socket I put it in and now it has gotten to the point where it works on none of them. Occasionaly when it didn't work one I tried one I had already used but soon the same thing happened. I would like to know how to fix this problem. Is something wrong with my computer or is my keyboard busted? I have a new Dell Laptop Inspiron 1545 and all of a sudden, while typing e-mails, the keys will throw me into other areas like "history" of the computer, turn on other keyboard functions, etc. (It is happening while I type this) I have tried to uninstall the keyboard and reinstall it but can't find where to go to do it, even with directions from others. Anyway, I find that if I hold my hands high and directly above the keys it works better but it is a bad way to type! It is getting worse and since it is a new laptop I know it is not dirty, or worn out keys. Can anyone offer help?
Sounds like a loose or almost failing electrical connection somewhere that's sufficiently disturbed as you re-connect the keyboard to re-establish the electrical contact. Borrow a friend's keyboard briefly and try it instead. If you still have the problem then the issue is with the computer probably the USB controller. If the problem goes away then call Dell and ask for a replacement keyboard.
