Dell Vostro 1510 Keyboard Not Working

Driver reinstall... For example if I type nbvcx I avtually get mnbvc !!!!! Any suggestion is appreciate. It looks like an easy swap out with the keyboard anyway (vid on the link I posted before). Source

It was at first annoying. I read instructions on how to do it in regional and language settings: "Click to open Regional and Language Options.

  1. this is the older version of msklc I tried; http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/4/d/34d86d17-4b52-4a6c-9e90-a7a47415eaf6/MSKLC.exe those other programs from your link don't have other keyboard layout than default english, which is no use to me as
  2. I will try the menu/lst fix and report back i0i0br (viniciusrtf) wrote on 2009-07-29: #21 I updated my /boot/grub/menu.lst to this: title Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-13-generic uuid d84bc6b1-d051-4555-8485-1f051f1a151d kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-13-generic root=UUID=d84bc6b1-d051-4555-8485-1f051f1a151d
  3. Because the necessary reboots are really very annoying.
  4. I'm waiting for a call back too but would prefer to get mine swapped than a replacement keyboard.
  5. Keyboard & Trackpad NEVER work unless I keep tapping keys during boot phase (kubuntu progress bar).
  6. Vostro Laptops still use a PS/2 keyboard and mouse internally, even though they do not have external PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports.
  7. Here’s how to do it right.
  8. We will action these keyboard replacements on a first come first served basis, as quickly as possible.
