Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series button problem

This laptop has the worst button design in the history of technology. A button with a design that has a light opening with no lights and one light bulb for any activity. After destroying my first button after pressing on it to hard, my problem with my new button is, what are the times for it to turn on. Just pressing the button doesn't help. Light  says charging but it only goes on after light stops? One light, no words, just a battery symbol. I don't want to pay for more laptop buttons please help. Save me from a bad laptop design layout.

Hi cjlusa,

Thanks for posting.

Apologies that your system isn't performing as expected.  
Unfortunately from your description it is difficult to understand your issue.  If there is a particular button that's causing difficulties, could you post a picture of the button?  That way the experts here can have a better idea of what you are describing.  Also, please post the model of the computer and the operating system you are using.
