Notebook keyboards maybe aren't easily replaceable by users.

When keys have stuck for me in the past, & have often traced it to foreign object or other matter. I thnk the best way to clear the obstruction might be to use canned air, or gentle probing around the key.

If the system is still under warranty, contact Dell technical support for a replacement keyboard. If it is not, you can buy a new keyboard here:

My Dell Windows 7 laptop won't boot?


Press the Delete key during start up, to enter its bios settings window. At boot sequence selection, select CD ROM as first boot device, Hard disc to second boot device, and deselect all other boot devices. Means, there should be only CD ROM and Hard disc as boot devices, as said above, in sequence. Select 'Save and reboot' at the bios option, the computer will restart with hard disc; provided there is no CD at CD ROM. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS OR GERT AND EXTERNAL CD/RW USE THE FACTORY CDS
Many years ago, Dell started shipping computers with a small Dell Utility partition hidden at the front of the hard disk, followed by the main (Windows operating system) partition. Beginning around July 2004, select Dell computers in the Dimension and Inspiron model lines began shipping with a third partition hidden at the end of the hard disk. This third partition contains the "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" utility--colloquially referred to as DSR ("Dell System Restore"). This is a utility that can be used to return a computer to its "as shipped" state, with the XP operating system restored to the condition it was in when the user first unpacked the computer from the box. Pressing the right keys when the computer is starting up will boot this DSR partition.

I want to wipe my hard drive completely, and i downloaded dariks nuke and boot. but i dont know how to open my bios and do it. so how would i go about opening my bios? i own a dell inspiron 1525


To get in to bios you have to reboot and once screen turns black keep on pressing F2 key but dont hold it down but tap it and it will bring you in to bios menu. Some dell's use "Del" (delete) key so if this is the case just do same thing instead of tapping F2 just keep on tapping "Del" key. This will take you into bios. If this daris nuke does not work just put in your windows cd and reboot and on black screen just keep on tapping key F12 and this will ether give you boot menu to choose form and you need to choose cd or dvd rom or sometimes it will go in to it right away and it will say "press any key to boot from a cd-rom" so you can press any key on keyboard (like space bar) and then choose option to install windows and not repair, choose delete partition which is usually like couple screens(one is letter L and one is just delete) and then choose install windows and choose quick or normal format. Once formatting is done it will start the new install. Good luck.
