    I have a friend who has the above laptop and would like to be able to use a full external keyboard.

    Does that laptop have a PS/2 port and if so can you just plug in an ext. board?Please register YourTraySpell

    According to DELL's website for the Inspiron 5000, it does indeed have a ps/2 port which can be used for either a standard mouse or keyboard. Shouldn't have to do anything but plug it in.

    Good luck.
