There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

i would suggest calling technical support to see if the sim card you are using is even compatible with your laptop, you should not be having this problem if it is.

Same as above, with my laptop being studio XPS 1640


Well, as long as your pc is under warranty, Call Dell and have the keyboard replaced. it takes 24 hours to order the part, and 15 minutes to replace it. By this time tomorrow, you could be all set like a new 'vette. Good Luck!
