Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop keyboard not functioning properly
Posted on 2008-02-05
I'm working on a Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop and the keyboard is doing strange things. Sticky and Filter keys are turned off as well as Accessibility Options. When typing the letter Q in any application, the keyboard outputs, "qweru." Pressing A highlights all of the icons on the desktop. Also pressing A in IE will bring up the Search Function. Pressing Z in any text editor outputs ZVCX a return and then the letter M. I have booted the laptop up with Bart PE and UBCD and I have the same results. I have removed the keyboard and reseated it, making sure that the ribbon connection is secure. The keyboard is also clean as a whistle. When plugging in a PS/2 or USB keyboard, these problems do not occur.
Is this a definite keyboard replacement?
