Let me just complain for a second that the keyboard frame doesn't seem to fit the description of either internal or external computer parts. Hahaha, so here I am instead in building!


I just noticed the keyboard frame on my Inspiron 17 5758 is cracked between the shift key and the 1 key on the number pad.


I can't find this part solo anywhere to replace it.


I also cannot imagine htf it even got cracked, but I absolutely cannot handle looking at that crack.  It has to go.


Anyone know any part sites that boil it down far enough I can get just the frame and not a whole keyboard?  I don't need a whole keyboard and don't want to have to toss or store the extra.  It would be tossed because I cannot store it.  I have literally no place to put it since I just moved and had to give away my bins where I stored all those kind of things.

Keep the solution simple - get a new keyboard and scrap the old one.

From the look of it, the keyboard backplate is not removable. The keyboard comes as 1 unit as seen here. You would have to contact the manufacture directly and I doubt they will sell a single part. Maybe a 1000.. but not 1. Not worth their time.
