    Greetings,

    This morning when I booted my laptop (Dell C800) I found that a diagonal "column" of keys was not working (6,7,y,u,h,j,n,m). :( The keyboard was working last night. Any ideas or am I hosed?

    Thanks for your help!

    Marc

    That doesn't sound any good. Have you tried rebooting a few times to see if that cleared up the problem?
    I'd check the Dell website to see if that problem is mentioned.

    You probably need to remove the keyboard and reseat the connector to the system board. They have a way of working their way loose which can cause problems like this. Remove all the screws with a K on the back of the computer. Watch when removing the keyboard as the keys are fragile and fall off easily. BOL
