Keyboard cleaning

Jump to solution

Hi community !

I have a Alienware M14x R2. My tab key is sticking and hard to press. Anything I can do to clean it safely without having to change the whole keyboard ?

Thanks !

Then the key itself could be broken. Send your service tag via private message to DELL-Senthil S so he can look up the correct Dell part number for your system.

Hi kassousminou,

Please use a can of compressed air to clean the keyboard and check if that helps.

Let me know about the progress.

Thanks and regards,

No. Never. Maybe only a small drop of something somehow, but I cleaned it immediately and it stayed on top of the keys.
