Replacing dell latitude keyboard

Hi...rather than replacing several loose keys on a dell laptop, I chose to replace the keyboard. I can separate the case halves except for right in the middle in the back, the section with all the ports and right above the ram. Can you give me any hints as to how to finish opening the case? this is a dell latitude d505. thanks for any help you can offer. Bruce

Some keys on a Dell Latitude E4310 laptop are not working


I would suggest you call Dell Support and get the laptop replaced. If any of the keys are not working, it is not a good idea to manually open the key board and try to fix.
Hope this helps
Thanks

I hate neighbors! I had given my laptop to the boy livin next door and he returned it with the shift key missing. I will have to buy a new keyboard now 


Hi james,
sorry to hear that your kindness to another has been let down .
to replace the keys or the whole keyboard is not too big a job .
try searching on ebay for a replace keyboard ( in the uk around 20 pounds ) or buy a used one and change the key top
this is a link below to ebay as an example

My keyboard is really touchy, on several of the keys


Hi,

Before you replace the keyboard, try this:

Go to Start>Control Panel>Keyboard

There should be 2 adjustable settings: Repeat Delay, and Repeat Rate.

Move the slider to the left on both settings.

If you cannot get satisfactory results through this, it is probably time for a new keyboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Several keys not working.


If the keys aren't loose, you may need to replace the keyboard.

You can find the service manual from the Dell website and the keyboard part from eBay.

B key on my Dell Latitude popped off


Generally, once a key pops off a portable keyboard the keyboard needs to be replaced. It is pretty simple to replace and not too expensive.

Here is an example of a replacement on Ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-KEYBOARD-DELL-8500-500M-Latitude-D505-D600-D800_W0QQitemZ250338315590QQcmdZViewItemQQptZPCA_Mice_Trackballs?hash=item250338315590&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

To replace the keyboard, just remove the hinge cover, take out the screws for the keyboard and lift the keyboard to release the cable connector.

This is a rather old question, but the solution might still be helpful to other readers.

I suggest you call Tech Support at Dell...

Several years ago, I worked on many Dell CPx 500 models in my work place. There was an issue that always involved a series of 4 or 5 keys (they were always the same keys) that would quit working and we had attempted to purchase new keyboards to fix the issue. It turned out, the real solution was to replace the 'motherboard' of the Latitude notebook!

Dell had knowledge about the keyboard/motherboard issue that we didn't know.
