Dell Studio: Epic Fail

Sharing is Caring

At work today, I had a user come see me regarding his keyboard suddenly not working on his Dell Studio 1550 laptop which the company bought about a month ago. Keys being pressed weren’t being sent properly to Windows 7, and LEDs weren’t properly lit.


  1. Remove the battery
  2. Press and hold the power button for about 10seconds

Apparently, this solution removes static build up?

  1. I just had same issue. I was just working on my Dell Studio 1550, then it just shut down. After booting again keyboard didn’t work.

    Doing what you said I thought I’m doing some weird voodoo… but hey – it worked!

    Thanks for sharing this tip!
