Question about Dell Inspiron 1420 Keyboard
Laptop computer had original keyboard with space bar, enter key and right arrow not working. keyboard replaced with a new one from dell. computer recognizes the keyboard but not keys when pressed show any results on the computer. thoughts? thanks.
Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down.
