dell inspiron keyboard


I have dell inspiron 1525. Its keyboard keys very delicate. With kids playing and if some small rice particle etc falls in between the keys they come off easily. How do i change the keyboard model to different model(for example similar to my other dell inspiron N5050 keyboard which is more sturdy and stable).

Please advise

Plug in an external USB keyboard and get them to use that in preference to the laptop keyboard.  

Even better is to plug in an external monitor such as an LCD screen plus an external USB mouse and tuck the laptop behind the monitor so all the laptop is doing is providing the CPU and acting as a device that everything plugs into.
most laptop keyboard s have different mountings, and dimensions -  so they are not compatible
this means that you cannot install another keyboard model on your laptop

i sit on carpet floor of my apartment and work not on the table or chair. I do not think it is comfortable to keep LCD and external keyboard when working on floor unless i buy some small stands for them to mount i guess
since you can't install othe r models - it's the only option, even hanging from the ceiling
