    Howdy,

    Is it possible to repair a dell laptop keyboard? When its removed from the
    laptop and placed losely on top it works, but when i put it in place, it
    says "keyboad stuck key error" (or something). anything to do, but buy a new
    one?

    thnx

    It sounds to me like something is pressing on the keyboard, or there is a
    bad solder connection, and when mounted, it is being effected. As for
    parts, you would have to replace the complete keyboard as an assembly. DELL
    cannot sell the parts only. Infact, they may not even sell the part
    directly to you. They will probably instruct you to go to their authorized
    service rep.

  3. Probably. You can try to narrow it down by seeing at what point it
    fails as you move it around. It's also possible some bit of something
    conductive has fallen inside and is bouncing arouud in there. Possibly
    a bad cable or dirty connection - have you removed and reseated the cable?
