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.

Solution:

  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!
