thanks for the advice.
well i cleaned what i could under keyboard. not much to clean, a few tiny sticky bits, but nothing I could see, and I am not experienced enough to get into the motherboard.
I rang the local computer shop today, and told them i changed the keyboard, and the iu and kl buttons still come on together and they were very surprised. they said the answer was to change the keyboard. I did.
seeing as it works with a usb keyboard they said weird.
so for $99 they will look at it for me. worth it ? or is it time to replace ? shame as its only 6 months old. dell 1545 laptop.
my own fault. i paid them $99 last year for a different problem and they said needs a new motherboard dont bother.
any last suggestions ?
thanks again for all the advice tips.
