Need new keyboard - help

  pavvi 21:16 25 Feb 2006

I managed to kill part of my dell inspiron 6000 keyboard. I have had the laptop looked at and the guys that looked at it are fairly convinced that it is just the keyboard. Some of the buttons don't work at all and some of the buttons work just a little to well if you know what I mean. I have been trying to source a keyboard and praying that it won't cost too much. I have found some around for the inspiron 2500 but don't know whether these will fit my 6000? Any suggestions (the people that looked at it suspect something was spilt on the keyboard, it was working fine until I picked the laptop up with wet hands from doing the washing up!!!

Suggest that you buy a pair of rubber gloves.

Wear them when doing the washing up and remove before touching laptop next time.

won't any usb keyboard do the job.?

  Joe R 21:31 25 Feb 2006

That should read " portable usb keyboard"

Yes I learnt that lesson pretty hard, but hey, too late now...., I have considered a portable usb keyboard which I will use if costs are prohibitive....

Cheers for that at the moment it looks like I'll be contrradicting my normal hatred of ebay....I have had a look at his feedback and there is a lot of good feedback on there for sales..... I'd sooner pay 69 inc vat than 89+vat!!!!
