this the same in X and on the console? In X, you have to change the line
in XF86Config now beeing
Option "XkbLayout" "xx"
with xx being, e.g., "de" for Germany, into
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
(the british use the same layout, don't they?). On the console it's more
difficult, because it depends on the distribution, and I don't use

had to replace the system boards on three different Inspiron laptops at
the company I work for. A 3500,4100,and 8000. They all had the same keys
fail, the exact same ones you are having a problem with. Replacing the
keyboards does not solve the problem. Nor will flashing the latest BIOS
cure it. Dell replaced the keyboard on the I8000 three times then
decided it must be the system board. After they replaced the system
board(s) on all three systems the problem was solved.
