- Some keys not working

go to support, it tells you that this is really a PCGFRV27. Sheesh, and I
thought Dell had a mess with it's model numbers.
Anyway, the "o" key doesn't work. Unfortunately neither do several numbers
and most importantly (for the moment) neither does F8. I can't reload the
OS without F8 (can't agree to the EULA).
Any thoughts?? I can't find any info on how to get a look at the keyboard.
Would it even matter???? If the keys don't work and it is a membrane, is
this a throw away?? (or just good for parts???)
Any experience in this area would be a big help.
Re: Some keys not working
sheet with silvered contacts or sometimes the key buttons themselves
are impregnated with a conductive coating that shorts the contacts on
the board, in this case the key's can be easily re-coated.
They are usually re-placeable as a unit which is the better option.
