    Hi everyone,

    I got a new keyboard for my Dell Inspiron 1520 in the post today. However, when I press "d" it types "da" or "daa" instead.

    I've removed and replaced it 3 times and it's still doing the same thing, so I'm back to my old keyboard with a missing hyphen and broken up arrow.

    Is the new keyboard broken, or is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

    Return it as faulty and demand a new one.

    That was my plan - just thought I'd make sure it wasn't my fault first!
    Thanks!
