Question about Logitech Wireless Access Duo Optical Desktop Keyboard/Mouse KBWIREOPT

Laptop keyboard "dropping" key strokes

My Dell Inspiron keyboard is malfunctioning - it randomly does not register letters as I strike the key. It happens randomly and on any key. I then have to go back and "fill in the gaps" - hope that makes sense!

I am guessing that it is terminal, but hoping otherwise. I'd be grateful for any advice!

Thanks
Gayle

If this happens always with same key, then it is usually a bad key switch, and keyboard must be replaced.

If this happens randomly on a set of keys, then the keyboard flat ribbon cable is not well connected or is faulty, or the keyboard is faulty.

The laptop must be taken apart to check the keyboard connection.

The keyboard on dell is accessed removing determined screws underneath, then removing the upper cover that enclose pad and armrest.

If the keyboard is well connected, and fixing connector does not solve the problem, then the keyboard must be replaced.

I have a new Dell Inspiron laptop, windows7 and, randomly, keys do not register on the page especially in e mail.its not often its the same keys and none of them are actually sticking, just not connecting


Hi There,

If the laptop is new, it's still under warranty and you should simply call Dell and have them replace the keyboard. It's definitely not a software issue. Batches of parts which are mass produced are always going to have a few defective ones, and you have merely been unfortunate to get one of those; your keyboard.

Go online to Dell Support and find the Warranty link. When there, enter your Service Tag # (found on the bottom of your laptop on a slender label) and use their Chat service to get in a chat with a tech rep. They will advise you on your warranty type and what you need to do to have them replace the keyboard.

Although it's also possible to buy a replacement keyboard online at eBay and do it yourself from the online Service Manual for your machine (and really easy), you will void your warranty by doing so.

Best of luck.

Dell Keyboard/Mouse Lag


Check your ease of access settings from the control panel. Make sure you don't have any keyboard and mouse settings that make for slow stroke response.

My dell xps m140 keyboard is making double letters


Letters may be sticky. Did you drop coffee, soda or any liquid on the keyboard? Does the letter key "stick" and come up a second after you release it?
You may need to clean or replace the keyboard. To be on the safe side BEFORE you do it, plug a full size keyboard on the back of your laptop and check if the problem goes away.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Dell inspiron 1300 laptop


There are individual tiny switches under each letter. When the letter is pressed it sends an electrical signal to the keyboard controller and the CPU to register which key was pressed. Liquid under the keys will short out the switch so it does not send out the signal any longer. You need to get it repaired by the manufacturer or local PC repair shop.

Keyboard Malfunction


Does the laptop have a touch pad type mouse device on it? If so, you might accidently be hiting the touch pad with the sides of your palms or thumbs while you are typing a document.

Broken keyboard


To start you can temporarily use an external USB corded keyboard, do not use a wireless keyboard, a corded usb keyboard won't require drivers, and you can access the system straigh away. You can buy a wired usb keyboard at any computer shop for $20/$30.

After you access to your system using your external keyboard, do a backup of your data, and have laptop internal keyboard replaced. The spare is not expensive, but the job should be done by a technician, here is the replacement part: Laptop keyboard replacement for Dell Inspiron E1405
