Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Notebook
Wondering if the keyboard is bad... have connected a USB keyboard and it works perfectly
You can try some LIVE OS Cd and check if your keys are working or not. you can get live OS Cds online...best I will suggest is Hiren's Bootable CD 15.6.
If still problem persist then your keypad has gone bad
If you can remove the keypad and the key buttons and clean them properly then they might start working. But be careful when you remove your keypad.

SOURCE: Touchpad problem
Hi Stores, First off check to see if you have the Synaptics touchpad driver installed on your laptop. Go to the control panel, then add remove programs and look for touchpad. If you have it AND if you don?t configure the pads sensitivity or take advantage of the software?s ?features? I would suggest you uninstall it. My users (and I) have nothing but problems on the laptops that have it. Windows has default support for the device and it does fine as long as you don?t need any of the special features the software driver provides. It may be a good idea to make sure you have the software to reinstall it if you don?t like the results. If this doesn't work for you let us know and always please don't forget to rate this solution once we're done.

You can try reseating the keyboard connector. If that doesn’t work, the keyboard needs to be replaced. To reseat the keyboard connector, follow this link: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1084976
Be sure to remove AC power and the Battery.

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

water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly
inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards
& on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in
the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be
done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.
