Replacement keyboard in vostro 5480?


Recommended Posts

Hello to all the experts,

I've had a problem turning on my computer for a while now. I have to "play" with the button sometimes for a good few minutes until the computer turns on. At the same time there are some keyboard keys that have stopped working - but it bothers me less because I use an "external" keyboard.

The last technician I was with claims that in the Vostro 5480 the power button is on the keyboard, so you can not just fix the power switch and have to replace the entire keyboard - I tried to understand from the owner manual Is the on / off button really part of the keyboard and I could not find an answer there.

Another technician said that this sounds like a problem in the settings of the.

I am more inclined to believe that this is a hardware issue because I have noticed that if I tilt the computer down a bit or pat it gently on the back cover, the power button responds faster. What's more, the problem started to appear at the same time as some of the keys stopped responding.

I ruled out the possibility that this was a problem with the battery or charger.

Not sure if it's related, but another phenomenon that happens is that when the computer goes into sleep mode, the only way to wake it up is to open and close the computer cover (typing on a key or touching the touchpad does not wake it up) - this already sounds like a software / update problem - but maybe XNUMX Related to the problem of lighting?

How does that sound to you?

Is there really a hardware glitch?

Is the power button really an integral part of the keyboard, that is, can it just be replaced with the entire keyboard?

Does it sound reasonable to you that replacing a keyboard will cost 600 NIS?

If there is anyone here from the Petah Tikva-Ramat Gan-Kiryat Ono area and can recommend Reliable - it will also help.

many thanks!

There is a position where the power switch / knob is located on the keyboard assembly.

In any case, the keyboard itself does not cost more than ninety shekels,

But, I do not know how much work it takes to replace it.


From what is described on the website, we do not see a serious story, even from this video, although it is a model for Titud, and not Westro.
