    Does anyone know if Dell has any authorised repair centres in the UK...

    I have a slight issue with my keyboard and I was wondering if I could get it fixed locally...

    Thoughts?

    I have used Dell under business warranty and they were brilliant! Just Google them, as best as I can recall you can get one year or three year cover.

    I've replaced both the keyboard and screen on my Dell laptop - it has had a hard life. The keyboards are not expensive (<£30) or difficult to replace. You should find something on YouTube showing you how.

    All you need to do is fill in the form and leave a brief note of your Dell fault and we will contact you back to talk about getting your Dell repaired.

    *We think we are the cheapest for Dell laptop and notebook repairs in the UK. If you find anywhere cheaper please let us know.

    Have a poke about on here

    it is literally a 5 minute job to change a keyboard.
    unclip the cover strip
    undo 2 screws
    lift keyboard up and out
    unplug the flat ribbon cable
    wipe out any dust or muck
    plug in new cable, which comes attached to the keyboard
    drop keyboard into place
    do up 2 screws
    push the plastic cover strip back into place

    it is that easy and a genuine Dell keyboard can be bought for under £20. if you were local i would do it for you

    My Dell had a problem after two years and it ended up in the skip.

    Make sure you put the cable back the right way up - easy to do it wrong due to the way it appears when you replace the keyboard. I did this wrong and took it to our local repairer who told me it is a common mistake. Costly mistake in my case:Angry:
