Did you drop something on it? Does the USB work properly? You should first try to remove it and place it back.

Copy and paste issues

Annoying problem if you rely 100% on keyboard shortcuts! I had the same problem and the fix is very easy. You will need to uninstall your keyboard driver and restart your computer and your CTRL keys will function once again. To do this:

1) Click Start
2) Control Panel
3) Printers and Other Hardware
4) Keyboard
5) In the Keyboard Properties window, click Hardware
6) Click Properties
7) Click Driver
8) Click Uninstall, click OK
9) Restart your Computer

Fn key not working on Dell Latitude E6400

one quick simple test to see if the key works is hold the Fn key and press the power button on a clod boot from power off state. If the PSA diagnostics start the Fn button is functional, and we'll need to troubleshoot other issues.
If the PSA diagnostics do not start, then reseat the keyboard (It has a slot connector into the palmrest) and see if that resolves. If still no change, replace 1st the keyboard, and if that doesn't resolve the palmrest.

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.
