Have a dell inspiron 1545 laptop(2 yr old).i cleaned 2 weeks back with colin cleaner meant for cleaning itafter i did n started it started to beep continuously for few secs and the screen blinked.So i kept...


If you cleaned it when it was powered on and in use there is a chance that you have accidently hit a control function that has enable / disabled an unwanted feature. If not this then the cleaner may have damaged the logic in some way - best bet now would be to call DELL support and give them the support product key on the base of the laptop - a new keyboard is easy to install - look up you tube and you will see a demo.

Where is hash button on dell 1525 keyboard?


Hold down both the Shift and 3 keys at the same time. That's the usual combination for QWERTY keyboards.

Popped a key off my Dell Inspiron laptop keyboard by accident.


You should be able to just pop off another key from your keyboard using a flat screwdriver. Then just compare how that key looks and reassemble the plastic components and the key just snaps back on. Also you may want to check your warranty at support.dell.com under warranty status and enter your service tag. If you are under warranty dell will replace it. Also ebay dell keyboards are cheap to buy and easy to install just two screws and a simple cable. If you need more help let me know.

Key board does not work[only blue marked key is workig]


I have a dell laptop and had this happen to me. It's a simple solution, your "Fn lock" is swithed on. Hold down the Fn button and hit Num lock. Now your other keys should be working rather than the blue keys. Hope it helps

Touchpad and cursor keys quit working


I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.

Hope this helped =]

The keyboard on laptop is locked.


Are any of the keys stuck down?

Does it do this when you reboot the machine e.g. can you press F2 or Del to go into setup?

Also are you familiar with the 2nd function keys onthe laptop (usually defined in blue on the key) to access these you usually press a "Fn" button to activate the blue part. Maybe you activated a keyboard lock by accident. If you have the manual maybe check this or call dell support as previously mentioned.
