HELP ME, Dell inspiron 1000 keyboard problems

  HELP ME!! 18:02 23 Aug 2005

hello, Last september i purchased a dell inspiron 1000. It is running fine.

I acidently broke 3 of the keys on the notebook when a book fell on it of a shelf.

The keys work fine but u have you push on the rubber underneath the original key. The black key itself is fine, but the white support underneath is broken. I have contacted dell and they have qouted me almost the same price of a new laptop, i have had a good look around on ebay and the web. But i cannot seem to find a part of even replacement keyboard anywhere.

Would anyone happen to know where i might be able to find a keyboard or parts?

Thanks Ollie

Thanks, unfortunately i have already tried that, but i cannot ever seem to find the inspiron 1000, keyboard. Most of the other laptops are available, but the 1000 seems to be impossible to find. I have looked for the 1200 and the 2200 as well because they have the same case but i have found no luck. Thanks though.

I had a look at that fixing website, unfortunately they do not cover the inspiron 1000, the list of covered laptops on there website does not include mine :(

Just a small point, have you tried claiming on your house contents insurance if it was done at home.
most companies entertain this type of accident.
Best wishes
