Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

The keys on the new Dell XPS 8300 keyboard are too slippery. My previous XPS 420 had a keyboard with the keyboard keys indented which made finger placement easier. Does Dell make an easier to type on keyboard or is there some product that can be used to make the keys less slippery or maybe I should look for a generic keyboard?

Hi there,
I know stickers that you can use to stick on the keys if the letters or numbers have worn off. Maybe that will do the trick but if it's slippery keys and it's the keyboard design and you are using a USB keyboard.
I think the best way to go is to get a generic one from BEST BUY, STAPLES, etc... Just plug it in the back of the computer where the current keyboard is and everything should work well.

I have a dell xps that came with a wireless/bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad and i have another dell xps 420 that i'd like to use the wireless keyboard on...they are both dell xps's and both


Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.

Rubber plunger came off the "i" key on my Dell XPS M1330 keyboard. How do I reconnect it? I have the key and plastic pieces that attach behind it as well.


Dear peg, As you have the plastic pieces, set it as previously it has, may you don't know but do it as much as possible. One think you remember that, set the plastic such that air can give pressure on the sensor. Apply some gum on the side of the rubber. After that see the key have lock which can set on the clamp which is on the key board. Set it and apply a little pressure. It will work. In real today the keyboards are non-repairable. So do it on your own and if you failure buy a new one.

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen


Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.
