Inspiron 3800 Keyboards Are Garbage

25 May 2004

I really don't think I compute too much, but I keep wearing out keyboards on my Inspiron 3800. Luckily Ebay keeps me stocked in replacement parts. I just dropped a 3rd replacement keyboard into the machine, and I expect this one to eventually wear like all the others. The springs get loose and it starts double typing or not typing some keys.

Now that I have 2 defunct keyboards, I can take the less-used springs from the oldest and replace the worn ones on the other keyboard. Maybe I'll be able to rebuild them into one working keyboard, and I'll avoid hitting Ebay a bit longer.
