A single key failure on a portable is almost always a mechanical failure of the keyboard itself. The good thing is keyboards are generally cheap and easy to replace.

The F8 and F9 keys on my Dell Inspiron 1525 are messed up. Do you know where I might purchase those two keys from?


Hi there,

Dell is notorious for shipping several different types of keyboards (as far as the tiny parts under the keys are concerned) from different manufacturers. While the entire unit fits and plugs in exactly right, chancing replacing keys is risky. I speak from experience having repaired 100's of Dell laptops.

I recommend buying a new keyboard from one of the vendors at the link below. Then go to Dell support and you'll find your Service Manual there to replace the keyboard. It's relatively simple.

It's worth the 15 bucks...believe me

Hi,
This is one of the known issues with the Inspiron 1525 computer.The problem is caused by faulty cmos battery. If you computer is in warranty kinldy call Dell to get the same replaced . if the system is out of warranty. You would need to replace the CMOS battery ie below the keyboard.
You can follow the instructions below

Stuck keys


You don't have to buy a whole new keyboard to replace few keys. Try taking off the key cap and its retainer clips (plastic pieces underneath the key cap). Repair it yourself with the help of this video:

How do i get my enter button back on my inspiron 1525?


The keys just pop on and off. If the key will not snap back on, then the keyboard will most likely need replacement.
Replacement keyboards are less than $20

My f key is not working properly on my Dell Inspiron 1525


I think maybe somehow the "s" key is sticking or is messing up. You can try cleaning the "f" and the "s" keys with a damp q-tip and see if that helps but if it doesn't then your only other option is to replace the keyboard.

Certain letters are not working


When keys go faulty the entire keypad needs replacing. You can't replace individual keys. I would suggest contacting dell and ordering a new keyboard, it's an easy fix: http://www.essortment.com/articles/install-replacement-keyboard-dell-inspiron_102151.htm
If you need to purchase one, I did locate: http://yallstore.com/laptop-keyboard-replacement-for-dell-inspiron-1525-p-4228.html For $16

How do i replace the keyboard on a dell inspiron 1525


How to Install a Replacement Keyboard on Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Computer You may need:
  • New keyboard

  • Screwdriver
---Be careful to not break off any of the plastic tabs on the keys as they are difficult to replace.---
  1. Turn the computer off and slide the tip of the screwdriver in the notch on the right side of the hinge cover (the plastic section above the keyboard). Slide the hinge cover up and remove it from the computer, exposing a series of bolts. Unscrew the bolts and remove them.
  2. Pull up on the edge of the keyboard and slide it forward toward the display. Slide the keyboard all the way out of the computer case slowly.
  3. Unhook the flex cable from the computer board to disconnect it from the computer.
  4. Slide the new keyboard into place, connecting the flex cable first.
  5. Screw down the edge of the keyboard with the 4 bolts from before and replace the key cover.
  6. Power up the computer and see how your new keyboard works!
