Only the "a" key? Sounds too good to be true, Yes they do offer a Service to repair this, But really what happens is they send this to the Manufacturer. You can do this yourself as well. I would take it in regardless to have it thoroughly inspected and make sure nothing else is damaged that you havent noticed yet. But With the Assumption that its only the "a" key, They will take the keyboard device out, Insert a New one, and Mail this back. The Number for Dell to see where their closest repair center is 1-800-624-9896, And this number is 24/7

Can you help me fix my Dell Studio 1558 laptop? It doesn't boot?


Dropping a laptop is never good news. Have you tried to Cold-Start the laptop, unplug. remove battery, leave battery out for now, plug in try to start normally. If that fails, Did you remove the HDD and reseat? The damage from the drops may have jarred something loose. Do you get activity, light blinking, from the HDD? The DVD/CD?

Left shift key not working


Hi Marcy,

Check that the key depresses all the way (same amount as other keys next to it). If so, then the most likely problem is that the keyboard has failed. You can have the keyboard replaced fairly easily.

Keyboard for the Dell Vostro 1520 costs $20 or less depending on where you buy. You can view YouTube videos on how to replace the keyboard or have someone professionally replace it for you.

Some key doesn't work


go to dell care,they will change the keyboard.i think now your laptop is not within the warranty period because it is a 2006 model.so you need to pay for your work to dell care.if you want to dispose off then dont do it with dell care for which you dont get any money.its better get it repaired from someone and sell it out.Else there is another way too,buy an external keyboard!

Spilled water on my dell insiron 1525 keyboard now when I hit a key it types two letters


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.

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

0, o,k key doesn't work


The best thing to do is to disconnect the keybaord and put it on a radiator or in front of a fan, or, better, both. You can also use a bag of rice, which is a great desiccant (just saved my iPhone last week with this trick). The rice pulls in water from the surround air and will literally **** the water out. I'd really suggest putting it in the diswasher first though then dipping it in a bath of rubbing alcohol (to displace the water, shaking it and repeating this about 5 times and then putting it on a radiator with a fan infront of it. Or, rip it out and replace it on ebay for about $20.
