    Dell 2520 keyboard issue on Windows 10


    hello everyone. I upgraded windows 7 to windows 10 on my Dell Vostro 2520 laptop, and the keyboard has started acting weird. The problem is usually with spacebar, backspace and enter keys, as they stop responding at all. I have to press them a number of times before they respond. I tried everything I read on forums but still nothing! i am using 64bit OS. any ideas how to fix it? Dell hasn't provided any keyboard drivers and I have the latest Dell Touchpad drivers.

    Drivers are not generally needed for the keyboard. Those use the hid drivers supplied by windows. Just plug and play.

    If keyboard is acting oddly, is is generally a hardware related issue. And most probably you will not be able to open the laptop to fix it. Take the laptop to a dell service center. At a maximum a replacement keyboard will be needed.

    I have no issues opening the laptop by myself. Have done it a number of times. Suggestions on how to fix it will be welcome. As for the Dell Service center, unfortunately, the laptop is 5 years old and there aren't any reasonable Dell service centers in Pakistan

    Your country flag gave me an idea that you are in Canada. Anyway ... see these two videos. You will get the necessary idea.

    Thanks! The Enter, Backspace and Spacebar keys behave in a weird way. When they work, they just work like a charm. When they stop working, I have to press all three of them again and again and again, until they start working all by themselves. May be it's a problem with IRQs? (the keys stopped working at this point, so I just pressed backspace and spacebar a few times and voila!). Any clue how to fix this issue?
