I have a pretty new Dell studio 15, about 2 months old. When I try to sign in neither the keyboard nor touchpad and buttons work. I have a mouse that I have to plug in and hit switch user. Then it reloads and the keyboard and touchpad work. But only barely. I can't type very fast because about every tenth key I try to press doesn't work and I have to either press really hard or press it several times. Also, the touchpad is really unresponsive and jumpy. I have like a 4 year warranty but I don't think anything is actually broken, because It did this about 3 weeks ago for 4-5 days, then it worked fine until about 4-5 days ago. Thanks for any help.

I'd say reload the driver, but need more info

there's 4 numbers for a Studio 15xx, either 35-36-37
Each one has a different version.
If you're not sure, post the service tag number found on the bottom

It's a 1535. Does the dell website have their drivers? Is just the keyboard one or what?
