It sounds to me like a mechanical problem actually ...probably it is ....and in this case you can not do much ..but ..either try to open it and fix it ..(if it is a regular keyboard) or ..just buy another one ..cause this is not such an expensive device ..and sometimes it is not worth repairing ..
Ok...If the button is stuck down you just unscrew it from the bottom ...(all the screws..including the 3 ones from the mini-board..and open sure you do this operation on a large table...cause the buttons are auctioned by some little rubber units..(the ones that are actually need replacing)and those will probably will scatter around if you are not careful...
All you have to do to be sure that the 3 plastic sheets inside are not weat ...and do not have any sticky stuff on them (clean them and the contacts between them ) and after that use the little rubber suport from some button you never pause or insert..and replace the ones that are damaged in the shift key ....Put 'em back together and it will work ..
if you do not think that it worth the trouble..just buy another one cause it only cost you around how much you spent here on the site or a little more..
If it is a laptop ..things are much get it out you have to remove the cover from teh screen hinges..,practically the part in front of the keyboard ..after that the keyboard will slide a little forward and up..and it have a ribbon contact that should be unplugged...and the new one plugged and snapped in place ..thats all ..I will link you how to change one if you need..cause for a laptop one you can not fix any mechanical problems..

Tablet onscreen keyboard keeps reversing capslock.

Hi Melissa

When does this happen? Hitting Return/Enter/or the

key will generally throw this up. It is also noticeable on spreadsheets which jump to the next specified cell and automatically create a leading upper case character in the cell just used. These are operating system or program settings.

Try noting when this happens and then re-create it to be sure. Log the sequence to see if there are any keys which are involved (also the length of time or even just tapping a key or spot on the tablet surface can have a totally different meaning)

Hope this helps....

Left shift &caps&tab not workingon delle 1505

Please go to start menu> then programs> accessories> accessibility> onscreen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to type using the onscreen keyboard. If the keys are working using the onscreen keyboard, then you need to get the keyboard replaced. You can contact Dell if your system is under warranty.
