Yeah, it happens this way many times. The shift keys on the board are linked, both right and left have the same function, and therefore use the same circuit in order to work. When one goes they both go, and, unfortunately, replacement is the only option. Sorry.

Problem with shift key


I think reformatting the hard drive at this point is a good move, you have tried everything else to no avail.

Dell 1420 the twoon touch pad don't respond and the usb ports don't respond so i cannot connect a mouse neither can use the touch pad buttons I am dead on the water help!


LOL, didn't you know windows 7 was just a tad bit better than vista? Why do you think microsoft will be coming out with windows 8 in the coming months by the fall of this year. They keep trying to get it right.

Go to Dell's site and see if there are Window's 7 drivers for your model. If not, try downloading and installing the Windows Vista drivers. Right now, you might not have a driver or a good driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers and the Chipset (which has the usb ports).

Page up button not working


Unfortunately it sounds like you're keyboard is malfunctioning and the only permanent fix is to replace the keyboard. In the mean time, since you are unable to do so, I would suggest using the touch pad to manipulate the scroll bar for the faster scrolling. For more control you could use a USB mouse with the laptop which would give you a scroll wheel. (I personally use a Wireless Mouse with my laptop because I find touch pads don't react they way I would like my mouse to use)

SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY


Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Shift key wont work!!!!!


It sounds like you have a FilterKeys options checked that is disabling your Shift keys.

Try going to Start -> Control Panel -> Accessibility Options
Uncheck all boxes in the Keyboard tab (StickKeys, FilterKeys and ToggleKeys) and click Apply or OK.

Try your Shift keys now.
