Why would my keys be sticking on my keyboard?
My keys are sticking to the keyboard
A media center Workstation laptop, released in 2009. It is the third revision of the 17 inch models in Dell’s Studio line, and features a processor architecture based on the Intel Montevina platform.
On most Dells, the laptop turns on with or without a working battery, as long as the power adapter works. I suggest borrowing a known working power adapter to see if the Dell will turn on. If it still does not, there likely is some hardware problem.
