I have a problem with the keyboard on Dell C600 laptop. It seems like the left part of the keyboard is disabled. No respons on 1,2,q,w,a,s,z,x,Esc. I purchased a new keyboard on eBay, but it didn't fix the problem. I resoldered a keyboard connector on the system board, no change. Please help!!!

    Thank you to isamb.



    The keyboard connector didn't look as bad, but I still decided to go ahead with the isamb recommendations. I used a needle to pool all the pins away from the edges then reconnected the keyboard back and it worked.

    Did you try hooking up an external keyboard? If not, try it and see if you get the same results. Any USB keyboard should work.

The C600 keyboard connector is a ribbon cable with a push down to connect block. When one side of the keyboard keys do not work it is usually because the pins in the keyboard socket do not make a good contact with the ribbon cable.

Remove the keyboard and visually inspect the pins in the connector.
If necessary you can prise them back into the correct position using a sewing needle or something similar to get behind the pins.

Make sure you discconect the power supply and battery before you attempt.

Where do I turn off my laptop


Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

1. Mouse over the little gadget in the lower right corner of the screen. (You can also move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner; same result. Or, you can press Windows-C on your keyboard.)
2. In the slide-out menu (known as the Charms Bar) that appears, click Settings.
3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

1. If you can open dell laptop keyboard clean it underneath. There might be some static problems and dirt must have the cause of it.

C400


Yes, you can use the c600 if you wish.

Correction on myself: There is 1 screw on the bottom left right above the Windows XP OEM Sticker. Remove that, the hard drive slides out.

Hope this helps.
