Hi there,

Your keyboard has shorted out with the water damage. It can be easily replaced by buying one on eBay for probably less than $20 and using the Service Guide online at Dell Support I am posting right below.

Spill on key board and now the letters are not typing


If you spilled water then shut off the laptop NOW and let it dry out for about 3 days. If you spilled soda or juice then you will probably need to have the keyboard replace. Hopefully the liquid did not get to the motherboard or then you might have to have that replaced also.

Juice spilled on dell laptop,the problem is when i press certain keys 3 or 4 letters apear,it is the same with a new keyboard


If that happens with a new keyboard then the mother board is faulty and a replacement laptop is on the horizon. What happens with an external (USB) keyboard?
Hope this helps.

If you spilled something on the keyboard it's pretty obvious the source of your problem ;)

I would suggest swapping the keyboard out with a new / used one from ebay, it's cheap and easy.

Here's a tutorial :)

Hope this info helps, and if you have any other questions please reply to this thread.

I had the same issue, I don't know if what I did had anything to do with the fix or if it was just pure luck, I held the Fn (Function) key then hit the letter (e) a few times and it started typing. Hope this helps anyone that may experience the same problem.

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

Dell notebook keyboard malfunction


I suspect just as you suggested something was spilled on it. Other than loose keys laptop keyboards are generally not repairable. They are not that difficult to replace, but check the Service Manual before deciding to do it yourself.
