Hello. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. Majority of the right side of my keyboard does not work. I bought a new keyboard, but it's doing the same thing. When I use a keyboard through the USB port , this keyboard works. Any other solutions? Thanks...
As if it is a DIFFERENT laptop, it is an amazing coincidence and if it IS the same as the post in 2009, as the external keyboard works and the NEW laptop keyboard panel does not - I think we may safely presume it is an internal error on the keyboard connection wiring.
Alternatively depending on what you mean by the right side - only a few keys work
FN + num lock or just num lock.
and scroll lock.
In otherwords do you have them ON

You are more than welcome, was it by ANY chance the number lock.
If not then I really do believe it is a wiring fault on the cable connection to the keyboard, depending on what exactly you mean by the right side.
Especially if it is the same laptop as you asked about in 2009.

I would be absolutely amazed if this problem can be resolved on any internet site.
My opinion is - the cable is not properly connected - or the connector on the system board is damaged.
However if the fault on the replacement keyboard is exactly the same as the one on the original - one may suspect that it is not that, as the cable is not detachable from the keyboard - is it? - and there is no reason to suspect that the connection was faulty - until the original keyboard was removed.
However - the solution if you can find it will be enlightining. - I mean that sincerely
Good luck with it

Thanks. I'll let you know if I somehow resolve this issue.
How are you progressing with this please.

after a complete drying out the laptop keys would work intermittently then stop taking any input using most of the keys...a few would work but it was random and after wasting waaaaaaay to many hours and money trying to fix it...it was cannibalized for parts that were sold
