Q: Turning the PC by keyboard

Hello guys,

I have ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. H81-PLUS mobo in my desktop PC. I looked the menus of the BIOS but didn't find some option for turning the system on by pressing a key on keyboard. Has my mobo such an option? If yes, which menu please?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

sometimes my laptop keyboard and the touchpad just turn off. I can't use any key an I dont even see the cursor on the display. Ii need to restart my laptop and then everything works fine. I've already downloaded a driver from the manufacturer's site. Is this maybe a hardware problem?

I have an HP Pavilion 17 e130ez notebook.

A:My keyboard keeps turning off. How can I fix it?


You may try to hard reset your laptop by removing the battery off and also disconnecting the AC power adapter/charger. Then press and hold the power button for about 30 - 60 seconds, after you release it, reconnect the power and turn your laptop ON and find out if you're still having those issues.

I had to use the on-screen keyboard the other day.

Now, every time I boot up it's there on the screen.

How can I prevent it from loading on startup?

I have just bought a latitute E5550 which i'm generally happy with apart from the keyboard backlight keeps turning itself off which is really annoying
I can't see any way to stop this anywhere, i could live with it if it wasnt such a short time but it's like 5 seconds
Found a setting in the bios which stops it from happening when it's plugged in but doesn't seem to be any option for when it's running on battery
anybody know how to sort this out ?
Its very annoying having to keep moving the mouse or something to actually see the keyboard all the time

A:Microsoft Keyboard turning my sound down?

Sounds to me like a defective keyboard in the Laptop. Can you disable the built in keyboard, in the Device Manager when the external keyboard is connected? This is one possible way to try and isolate whether the problem is the keyboard or something else.

I set the mouse not to wake up my computer, and that's great.. I do like to wake it with the keyboard though so I left that on..

What I would be happy to do now is to keep my keyboard from turning on my computer when I turn it all the way off.. I'd like just the button on the front to do that.

Thank you!

cxskate, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Something like that would be a bios setting and nothing to do with Windows. Going to have to have a look in the bios power options for the option (if present). If in doubt filling in your system specs,

would help, and we can help you look.

I am thinking of getting a wireless keyboard and mouse, probably a Logitech, and wonder if, when I power off the computer, the mouse and keyboard will also turn off? It seems like a setting in Power Setting should offer the choice to do so.

Thank you.

A:Turning off a wireless keyboard and mouse

I have a Logitech MK 250 Wireless desktop. (KB & Mouse) The USB transmitter is quite small and sits neatly in the rear of the case. It uses AA batteries in both devices, which do last quite a while. They can be switched off by small switches under each device, although I don't bother unless I am not using the PC for some time.

The only problem I can see is if you are a hard core Gamer (I am not, just a dabbler) as they do tend to be slower for gamers (or so my grandsons tell me). But for most uses, I am very pleased with the kit, especially since I installed a TV Card in the PC. There are other manufacturers, but I have always been happy with Logitech stuff, it is well made. Check out this one:

Logitech UK - Wireless Combo MK260

?24.99, the successor to mine. There are others, in fact (EDIT) I read that there are more expensive ones there which would suit a Gamer. Hope this helps!

FURTHER EDIT: The MK 260 is available from Amazon @ ?17:98.

A:Keyboard Temporarily Switches Off after Turning on Desk Lights? O_O

What I would try first is a surge protector for the PC, monitor and printer. Their should be one anyway in my opinion.

Your keyboard is wired so I don't think it's a RF from the light.

You could also try another light and see if it still happens. A faulty light could cause a surge in current.

Having a qualified person check the wall outlet.

Hello to everyone,
I am really satisfied with my Surface book except of one thing:
When I'm undocking the Screen from the Keyboard and turning it on the other side, laying it on the Keyboard after a while the fan (I think it's the gpu fan) gets loud. This happens only when the Keyboard/nvidia Card unit is connect with the power supply. It's not Happening in battery mode.
Does anyone of you have the Problem too?
Is there any Solutions to solve this? (I also deactivated the Nvidia gpu in the device Manager. But it didnt help)
Many thanks in advance

Here is the issue, when my computer goes to sleep after it's on for a while when I move the mouse to get the screen back up it shows the backround no icons or anything to click.
Same if I turn it off and turn it back on. I have to turn it off and on many times then go to safe mode and shut down then turn it on again for it to work. Just now I had to turn it on/off 4 times for it to show the icons and task bar. Usually it is left blank with nothing to click having no choice but to turn it off.

Hi there, i have some issues with my monitor (awhhh).

It's working fine like 10-20-30 minutes and then it's turning off (for no reason) while the cumputer is running and the flash/button goes pink. I don't know what's this colour stands for. Blue is when the monitor is active, yellow is when the monitor is turn to sleep and when i shut down my computer, but PINK? What's that, anyone?

The monitor is turning OFF, not in a sleep mode or something.
I must remove the cable and push back in every 20 minutes. That's wrong.

Maybe it's the cabel, maybe something with drivers and stuff...i don't know.

Powered computer down by holding the on/off button for 5 seconds, restarted but noticed that I could hear the DVD drive power up but that is where it stops/hangs, nothing comes on the screen. Have done this numerous times, as well as removing the battery and starting with just mains power on?

Just few hours ago I was listening to songs on Napster. Then I played some online games. I had to reboot at one point since it was going slow on me.

For some reasons unknown, my computer turns off and tried to boot itself, but kept turning off and booted itself. Somehow it did that in a loop. I tried to wipe up some dirt from inside(it may not be completely wiped up). I even tried to rearrange the cables and such. Now, if I press the power button, it only shows the power indicator, but it won't boot. I'm just puttoping it to rest right now hoping that it would back up tomorrow when I turn it on.

Hi all. I have already posted this once here. The topic had quite a few views and not a single reply. I'm giving this another try, as the problem persists and is not getting any better.

The keyboard on my Aurora m9700 is having some strange issues. I cannot figure if it is software or hardware related, either. At random intervals, the keyboard will cease function. But when I go into standby, then come out of standby the problem seems to be magically fixed! In fact, the problem just happened right after I finished typing the last sentence. I checked event manager, nothing changed. I had to go into standby and come out of it...

So please, is there anyone on here that can help me out? I have reformatted the computer since this started happening and nothing has changed, so I do not know what could possibly be causing this!

Hello, I am running LenovoX260 with Windows 7, I additional installed the lenovo updatecenter. All drivers are updated according to lenovo7 update center. Symptom: Basically, when the machine boots on battery all keyboard strokes are delayed for roughly 5 seconds or an easy touch of touchpad or trackpoint -- whatever comes first. The machine has not a high load at this time and no keystroke is lost. It is just delayed strongly. To make it more complicate, this symptom disappears until next reboot when I lock the screen with win+l and reunlock the screen with my password. It also disappears when I plugin the powerplug, but it also reappears when I unplug it again on the login screen. Once I relogged/unlocked this effect does not reappear. Booting with power plugged in is fine. Any ideas?

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

I have recently purchased Inspiron 14" 5459 in India. This comes with a non-backlit keyboard.
Is there a way to get it upgraded to Backlit Keyboard? If yes, can this be done via Dell Support or I'll have to procure the OEM part on my own and replace?

I have no idea what keys she hit, but she was near the bottom left side of my keyboard. Can anybody help PLEASE?

Is this a special keyboard? does your motherboard have ps2 connection for a keyboard/mouse? If so, try connecting a ps2 keyboard as a temporary solution until you can iron out the driver issues. Or maybe just a plain vanilla USB keyboard will do the trick. I don't think your PSU has anything to do with it. Hope this helps.

Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

A:laptop keyboard does not work but works fine with usb keyboard

The fact that a USB keyboard works fine when your built in one doesn't, proves that it is the keyboard itself (or connectors) that is damaged/defective, otherwise, if it were a software problem, the external keyboard would do the same.

Hi, I do a lot of typing at night time and the click of my keyoard's keys can be quite noticeable when there is pure silence. I have a Logitech K520 which isn't so loud but I would really love a keyboard that has the same type of keys as my Samsung laptop which are practically silent. Most laptops I've tried have similar keyboards in that the key doesn't travel far at all and there is no 'clicky' sounds either.

I have no idea what I would search for as I don't know what the style of keyboard is called. There are various names on the market, 'soft touch', 'quiet touch', 'low profile' etc etc but nothing that specifically identifies a laptop style.

I would just like a wireless laptop keyboard basically, even if it's the same size as a laptop keyboard but preferrably full sized.

Thanks very much for any advice

If under warranty, return this to the store ASAP for replacement/repair. There's not much we can recommend you do, hardware-wise, that you can do and not void the warranty.
I suspect the keyboard may be sticking,,, you can try another USB KB for troubleshooting though. Plug in the USB KB and see if that behavior is duplicated using that KB.

Hello Nysoh

On this virtual way nobody can say for sure what the problem is but if the internal keyboard is not working properly first step is keyboard replacement. If the problem still persists then troublemaker can be keyboard port or keyboard controller.

As far as I know BIOS has nothing to do with this issue.

The laptop does not come with a backlit keyboard and I was curious if there is a way that I could purchase a ugraded backlit keyboard and install it I know some models have the backlight connector under the keyboard but they just do not come with them installed? If so what model keyboard should I purchase and would the laptop follow the HP pavilion 15 series disassembly steps?

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

Everything was working fine. Suddenly, when I typed on the usb keyboard, nothing happened. So I put it in a different usb port on the laptop, and it still didn't work. So I tried the laptop's own keyboard and still nothing. I'm not sure what is going on. 
I tried deleting the keyboard driver from Device Manager but that did nothing. I tried searching for this problem but all the results seem to not apply to this specifically. 
Any help would be appreciated. 
Also... I'm a n00b that knows very little about computers so bear with me

So what's happening is occasionally, while I'm typing, it repeats letters, as if the keyboard temporarily locks up. (Sometimes, but it's rare because I usually type continuously, it just stops me from pressing keys for a bit.) It's like "Hello my naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..."
And what's weird is it only happens after I pressed any of the lock keys before (disabling doesn't fix it.)
I'm using a keyboard connected directly to my PC, with up to date drivers.

Hi there

Stupidly I thought i could replair an apparently broken HDD instead of just buying a new desktop.

I bought a new western digitial 120 HDD, extra RAM, a DVD-RW and windows XP (to replace 98).

Upon fitting the hardware, I discovered the keyboard no longer works, though it works fine on my parents PC. The num, caps and scroll locks briefly light up when plugged in but the go dark and stay unlit when the PC is switched on. There are no 'keyboard not detected' messages when the keyboard is plugged in (but this does occur when I pull the cable out).

What could it be? Is it port problem, or something worse? I have tried taking out all of the additional hardware except for the HDD, but this makes no difference.

The upshot is that BIOS is unaccessible.

Any advice would be warmly appreciated.

W7 log no suggest Cannot log in to W7 laptop ? unresponsive keyboard and no on-screen keyboard a workaround solution Cannot log in to W7 laptop ? unresponsive keyboard and no on-screen keyboard to an issue I currently have with a Windows Home Premium laptop This is an old laptop that I only use from time to time but it still has a number of files and photos on it that I don't have saved elsewhere Last time I used the laptop it was acting as if the Ctrl key was being pressed every - seconds which made the keyboard difficult to use because it triggered shortcuts as I tried to type Ctrl O Ctrl S etc Because I don't use the laptop as my main machine I decided that I'd uninstall the keyboard driver from within the Control Panel and just use the on-screen keyboard going forward Following this I powered the machine on a couple of days ago and panicked when I discovered that I couldn't get the Ease of Access dialog box to display on the login screen to allow me to enable the on-screen keyboard It doesn't produce any kind of error it simply does nothing when the button located in the left-hand corner is clicked At this point I was still hopeful that I could get around the issue by connecting a standard USB keyboard but this is also completely unresponsive although it does appear to be getting power from the laptop because the Caps Lock indicator light is lit I've tried a few alternatives connecting the keyboard before powering up during the start up process and also at the log in screen Additionally in the hope that it would automatically install a driver in the background and eventually allow the keyboard to function I left the machine running for about minutes but still nothing So just to confirm the machine has only a single user account set up on it which is password protected I can't proceed past the log in screen at all the laptop's default keyboard is unresponsive Ease of Access OSK dialog box will not display and the standard USB keyboard I have here doesn't appear to be helping either I also considered trying the above in safe mode before realising that I couldn't even do that without a keyboard unless there's another way of accessing this that I'm not aware of Any ideas - Thanks

A:Cannot log in to W7 laptop – unresponsive keyboard and no on-screen keyboard

If you are just interested in recovering your data to save elsewhere you could purchase an external enclosure for about $8.00 at Newegg, remove the HDD from the laptop and install it in the external enclosure.  You can then attach it to another computer via a USB cable (which comes with the enclosure) and access your data to recover what you want.

I have a HP vt6200 Omnibook laptop with German Keyboard. Recently my internal harddisk crashed and I replaced with a new IDE disk. I installed Windows XP (English US) afresh. Also installed the necessary drivers downloaded from HP site. Now the german keyboard is not working. It types multiple characters & behaves erratically. When I connect an external US English Keyboard, it works perfect. I tried changing the language/keyboard settings. It didn’t work.

I donot want to use German anymore on that laptop. All I want to use is only English. Now I am unable to use the laptop keyboard at all. Pls help !

We plugged in an external usb keyboard into an Asus n5200 sub-notebook computer and now the notebook keyboard is scrambling the letters and displaying numbers when some of the letter keys are pressed. Only the right side of the keyboard is putting in numbers instead of letters.

We suspect that the USB keyboard driver has overwritten the notebook driver, as there was an automatic detection process that occurred when the usb keyboard was first plugged in. The original driver seems to be missing. Machine running windows 2000. We are going to try and get it from the internet.
Anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks Russ

A:Notebook keyboard scrambled after plugging in usb keyboard

ASUS Techical line came turns out that the notebook keyboard has a num lock function that got turned on for some unknown reason when the usb keyboard was plugged in. Solution: press FN key and Numlock key and keyboard goes back to normal. The keyboard uses the right side letters at a number pad when num lock is engaged.

I already have the issue that when I put my E to sleep and wake it up again that the keyboard and touchpad do not work So I have disable the sleep options in the BIOS Now I run into different issues Yesterday I booted the laptop and it hang on the DELL logo After a while it stated that - External to - resons E5570 do display/keyboard/mouse work display, Black Latitude no keyboard/touchpad my EFI file would not be correct Force reboot and it booted straight to Windows What s more annoying is the fact Latitude E5570 - Black display, no resons to keyboard/touchpad - External display/keyboard/mouse do work that the laptop boot the DELL logo is shown and then the screens go s black as if it s not connected SO it looks like it hangs BUT an external monitor through HDMI does work and show the windows logon The keyboard and touchpad also do not work External mouse and keyboard do work So pretty much I got a brick when I do not have external display keyboard and mouse available When I reboot the laptop it works fine again Am I the only one with this Loads of issues with the laptop and wondering if I just have a faulty laptop Clean Windows Pro install is done times Used the nbsp DELL Command Update to install all drivers and patches Issues keep existing

A:Latitude E5570 - Black display, no resons to keyboard/touchpad - External display/keyboard/mouse do work

I have been spending a lot of hours in troubleshooting this week.
Diagnostics are 100% ok.
Reinstalled Windows 10 about 15 times.Installing drivers by hands, installing drives trhough the dell update management application.The issues keeps existing.
To sum the them up:- Cold boot (laptop is off) to Windows. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and they work again)- Resume from sleep. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and the work again)
After I got the laptop I installed 32Gb of RAM and an 512Gb Samsung 950Pro PCIE M.2 NVME drive.The drive should be support as Dell states on the product page and in the manual that PCIE with NVME is supported.
"Advanced features, like industry-leading M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe/NVME solid state drives, provide data transfer speeds up to 4x faster over traditional hard drivers. "
In order to get the drive visible and running on PCIe I had to disable the sata controller in the BIOS.This way the drive is detected in Windows as an PCIe NVME capable drive.
Just to verify if the issues I went back to default with the delivered 256Gb M.2 sata drive and 8Gb RAM.To install Windows I had to turn the Sata controller back on.
Installed the drivers manually updated WIndows and tested.The issues do NOT occur.
Retested by installing the drivers using the Dell Update Application.The issues do NOT occur.
So I figured out that the SATA controller somehow is the guilty part for all the issues.I mean when enabled to ACHI or RAID the sleep and non working keyboard/touchpad issues do not occur.
When disable the issues DO occur.

So DELL can you please tell me how I can fix this as you state PCIe NVME drives are supported??

I got my computer virused-up and unvirused thanks to the services of MBAM and too any others to name In the process something's changed with my keyboard There's a problem with my space bar When I tap the space bar to separate one word from the next the cursor doesn't move When I type the following word the space appears between the first and second letters of that word The droll sentence The quick red fox jumped over the lazy Keyboard Keyboard or driver problems. brown dog would appear as Theq uickr edf oxj umpedo vert hel azyb Keyboard or Keyboard driver problems. rownd og I can create a space between words by placing the cursor where the space should be tapping the space bar and tapping the -- gt arrow key While this creates a space it sends the cursor rapidly across the screen as though I am holding down the space bar I can stop its progress by tapping the backspace button or a button corresponding to a letter Other than this the arrow keys are either non-functional or work as usual The page-up page-down buttons work as expected Because of the uniformity of this dysfunction I'm inclined to believe that it's a systemic thing not a mechanical error with the keyboard Because I had to wipe the drive to get it unvirused my restore point is gone I've tried uninstalling reinstalling Windows uninstallling and reinstalling the keyboard driver s and updating them Apparently I have the most up-to-date iteration of drivers available for Windows already Before I turn this thing into a very expensive aerodynamically unlikely clay pigeon could someone please tell me how to fix this problem

The key for the equal sign isn't working on my keyboard, and just now I found out it won't work with the windows accesibility tools virtual keyboard. Strangely, the + sign works, even though it's the same key with shift pressed down. The keyboard works correctly on other 3 PCs that I've tested. These were running WInxp, 8.1 and the other one was also on updated Win 10. Does this make any sense? Do I have some sort of malware interrupting my key input?

Hi all I the Keyboard -- Please keyboard blame Virus don't ve been searching everywhere and all I can find are Keyboard Virus -- Please don't blame the keyboard ancient virus entries or experts claiming the user is too dumb to try a new keyboard A youngster complained about his machine not behaving right -- opening windows randomly etc We assumed operator error Finally he couldn t start up -- on startup the Keyboard Virus -- Please don't blame the keyboard key buffer overloaded and beeped continually After starting in safe mode certain keys wouldn t work -- H J K for example Youngster had a big homework assignment it looked like a keyboard problem we let him use one of the adult machines to edit his file It was a laptop machine -- I pulled the keyboard and tried his brother s keyboard That other keyboard works fine So far this sounds exactly like a keyboard problem No worries order a new keyboard and forget about it or days later the adult machine overloads the keyboard buffer and beeps on startup We have to go into safe mode just to start it up And guess which keys don t work The same ones Youth computer is a Toshiba adult computer is a Dell The odds of the same keyboard failure on two machines seem astronomical to me Since a file went from machine A into machine B I suspect a virus We are scared to start the Dell on our network and certainly don t want to transfer files But we have to get some files off that machine Toshiba runs Vista and Dell runs XP If I plug in a USB keyboard all the keys work Startup still beeps If I disconnect the laptop keyboard from the Toshiba haven t tried it on the Dell it starts up without the beeps This is after we reinstalled Vista from the HD recovery partition It could be that this is something resident in memory that somehow gets the keyboard address when if first installs And so a USB keyboard will still work Also we did reinstall Vista on the Toshiba and it did not eradicate the problem I can t find any acknowledgment anywhere that this is or could be a virus and none of the anti-virus houses seem to mention it I can t see any description of how to get rid of this Please I can t believe this is a faulty keyboard -- the coincidence is too much Does anybody have any recent experience with such a virus We re talking June Thanks much cud

About months ago I was merging partition's in partition magic and got an error which in some way nuked my harddrive At the time I had no idea how I could get windows back on my computer This computer was built by a friend of a relative and he didn't give us the anyhow.) (I think freezing its during the installation keyboard, Keyboard cd and I have no way to contact him So I went ahead and installed linux just as a crutch till I could get Windows back The PC is used mostly Keyboard freezing during installation (I think its the keyboard, anyhow.) for gaming so Keyboard freezing during installation (I think its the keyboard, anyhow.) linux isn't working too well for its uses Well the other day I was going through some boxes and found my old windows XP SP reinstallation CD from dell along with the CD key i'd written on the case it was in So I attempted Keyboard freezing during installation (I think its the keyboard, anyhow.) to install it and it worked fine the setup got to quot loading windows quot then came to the screen where it asked for me to hit enter to install windows R to recover a broken windows installation or F to quit I hit enter then f to get past the EULA and when it came to the partition screen the lights on the keyboard until this point numlock had been on turned off and the keyboard froze not allowing me to go any farther Thinking it was the fact that the keyboard was USB and I was using a converter or put it in it's original slot I took off the converter same problem only this time it stopped at the EULA So I tried with a non-usb keyboard same problem stopped at the selection screen then the EULA and once at the quot loading windows quot screen though this keyboard has a quot power quot light and it did stay on Thinking it was maybe the disk I borrowed a friend's windows xp cd figuring since they are both xp professional SP the cdkey would work all the same only same problem Someone suggested my computer might confusing my keyboard with something else i've unplugged everything but my monitor keyboard and power cord the problem persists Also thinking that my it may have been because my entire HDD was partitioned I unpartitioned the mb I had partitioned for swap nothing changed Also i'm not trying to preserve linux dual boot if need be once I get past this keyboard problem i'll delete the entire linux partition Oh and since then the installation has frozen a multiple parts once at the quot press f to install third-party raid drivers quot one at quot common host drivers quot and a few times at quot setup is starting windows and I know it isn't the fact that my BIOS is outdated because prior to me accidentally nuking it windows was on the computer and working fine Any suggestions Err probably should have said this earlier i'm on a intel pentium ghz with mb of ram

A:Keyboard freezing during installation (I think its the keyboard, anyhow.)

I've confirmed it isn't the keyboard.. but rather the actual setup freezing

Through some persistent trying, and use of this computer (which is on windows) i've managed to get my hdd blank, and partition/format it with the windows setup, now it either freezes like normal the the selection screen, or gets to "copying files from cd" and at 19,28,or 38% (all "big" files which take it a moment to copy) it stops reading the cd and just stops working.. this is getting frustrating =/

A:Serious keyboard issues - keyboard has a mind of its own

Have you tried plugging in an external USB keyboard to see if it exhibits the same problem?

If it turns out to be the keyboard, they are available on Ebay and fairly cheap to buy. They aren't difficult to install, usually just a couple of screws.

Here's an example of one on Ebay: New-Keyboard-Dell-Inspiron-1420

Since you've only tried one new keyboard, it cannot be ruled out that you had the bad luck to get a faulty one.
