My `Up` and Quote key won`t work, they were working fine a couple days ago, I don`t know what I did wrong. Just those 2 keys that are not working, no matter how much I press they are not processing...

Just checking, before we begin: did you at all modify your keyboard layout? This could be the problem, though it's unlikely. And also, do your UP and QUOTE keys have greater usage than other keys? If you can, take the key covers off and see what's happening with the key switches underneath. I had a similar issue with a Dell once and it was due to a nonfunctional keyboard switch.

Also, what happens when you plug in an external keyboard? Does this fix the problem? I imagine trying this would instantly tell us whether it's a software or hardware issue.

Anyhow, good luck! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. ;-)

Keyboard locks up

The only viable solution is to replace the keypad. They can be purchased on ebay, amazon and many other discount web sites. I am including a link with a good set of directions that includes pictures.

Don't worry, it's really not as hard as it looks. Just take your time and you will do fine.

4. Hold the power button to the right for 30 seconds.

5. Put the battery back in.

6. Plug the AC adapter back in.

7. Turn it on.

See if it works. If it works, Congratulations! If nothing happens, contact your service provider about it. Thank you!

Keyboard totally frozen/non-responsive on dell studio 1737 laptop

I'm very compulsive with my electronics, especially if they are new. I, myself, would have it sent in and I would complain why I spent X ammount of money on a doorstop, you know. If you don't have a warranty you can take to BestBuy for free inspection and what you might be able to physically do to fix it.

If I helped please rate me, if I didn't please comment and I'll do my best to help more.
