Its really simple...

Theres a small lip on the bezel just above the keyboard and all the way to the left side. Stick a small screwdriver under it and pry it up. Unplug the bezel from the right side and put it aside. Unscrew the two screws on the top of the keyboard that the bezel was covering and pull upward gently from where you removed the screws. It should come right up. There is a plug just underneath the keyboard. Unplug it and youre home free. Reverse these steps to reinstall.

Why did you replace the battery ?. You may need to do a CMOS reset/clear and there maybe a jumper on the board. If not turn the power off at the mains and remove the battery for 5 mins then refit and power up with keyboard and monitor connected enter the BIOS and set date and time save and reboot.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530


Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, http://www.amazon.com/Adesso-Adapter-connects-connectors-ADP-PU21/dp/B00008ZPED , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 8600 validating problems


This is a problem associated with a wireless connection. What it is asking for is the identity of your wireless lan. That is, the name the router is broadcasting. This is called the network ID.and is what you must supply when asked. If you untick the IEEE.802.1 you disable the connection. You will also need to have the nework securety code (WEP) to logon.

If what you are referring to is the 'eraser' type mouse joystick on many laptops that eventually go haywire and make the mouse drift off wonkily to the edges of the screen, those are able to be disabled if you download the mouse driver for your computer from dell. (the touchpad driver is usually the correct one) and in the control panel you can disable the toggle.
