Most dell keyboard are "released" from underneath, turn your laptop over and look for the screws with a K next to them. Sometimes there is also a samll removable panel at the top of the keyboard hiding 2 screws.

Sticking keyboard keys grrrrr no drink or anything


Get a can of compressed air and see if blowing on the keyboard will help. If not then Try a keyboard cleaning kit:

Keyboard stops working


This happens with this model dell. It's a pain. If it completely stops working except for space bar and perhaps one character it's the keyboard. If not it could be a software glitch. Spill anything on it? Replaced a keyboard for a person who claimed no spill. Found dried milk around perimeter of keyboard once removed. His kids did it. If you have to replace it, it is easy! You don't have to open the computer or really take anything apart. The keyboard is removable from the top by removing the plastic trim at the top of the base above the keyboard. The screen has to be folded all the way back to do this. If you want to replace it, its easy and cheap. Post it for directions.

Laptop Buttons clean


Hi there,

Turn you laptop upside down, you’ll find a few screws with a symbol that looks like a keyboard.
Unscrew these screws(and ONLY these).
Turn it again, open, and find about 4 "slides" in between the F-buttons. Slide them toward the front and lift the keyboard up from the F- buttons. Be careful not to break the thin film. The film can be lifted from the seal, again with care.
Unscrew all the screws keeping the keyboard together.
Then clean, and know why you shouldn’t drink and drive at the same time - sorry that’s in a all together different area :-)

Regards
Teis -> don’t forget to vote, - thank you.

Spilled Grape Juice


To give it a good cleaning, you will need to remove the keyboard and clean anywhere you can see juice or feel stickiness. You can buy the expensive computer cleaners, but I suggest 50/50 rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. Remove the battery and C-mos battery to make sure there is absolutely no power to the machine what so ever. After cleaning inside, you will want to give it a good 24 hours to dry, ensure that there is no moisture before applying power. If the juice reached the bottom of the machine, you may need to remove the screen, split the cases, and take the motherboard out, in order to clean the bottom side of the board. If you leave juice anywhere on the board it will gum up, and the acids in the juice will corrode and detierate the circuitry on the board causing a motherboard failure. Now the keyboard, in order to thoroughly clean the keyboard, I suggest that you spray a good amount of the rubbing alcohol in the keyboard, shake it or blow it out with air, then take paper towels and daub up the rest. Repeat this two or three times, then let it dry approx 24 hours. Sometimes the keyboard won't recover after a spill and will need replaced. If it works properly, then, after using the keyboard for a while, you will notice if any of the keys are sticking. Take the sticky key or keys off and clean them individually. I know it's alot of work, but it'll teach you not to keep open drinks around your laptop. It did me, I've ruined one machine, two keyboards, and thoroughly cleaned a third very expensive machine of mine to keep it working, but I finally learned to drink from a sippy around my laptops.

Laptop Cleaning/Repair


That is something that you should not attempt .. Because most likely you will need to replace the keyboard...
If they are just not working because they are Sticking or Stuck, you can repair this by yourself....you can remove the keyboard and clean it, also checking the ribbon cable that goes from the keyboard to the motherboard... look for any burn spots near the keyboard plug connection, chances are that just simply replacing the keyboard would fix it ..
You also will need the entire laptop taken apart to see if the "drink" spilled onto other parts, or worse... the motherboard...
