Dell laptop repair [Keyboard] - Lausanne

I just bought a new laptop before moving here in August and now it's not working... numbers between six and zero doesn't react.

I contacted the shop I bought it from in finland and they thought I should find a shop who sells dell here and ask if they could repair it. I have been googleing all week but I can't find any place.

Does someone know which shop sells Dell? Thank you !

Re: Laptop reparation Dell, Lausanne

What is the model number of that laptop ? Perhaps ebay.ch and / or ricardo.ch or even members on here might be able to get replacement keyboards without costing an arm and leg.

Re: Laptop reparation Dell, Lausanne

Just an FYI, reparation is a legal term refering the payment of previous losses. The word you were looking for is repair e.g. laptop repair needed.

Depending on the model, replacing keyboards on Dell notebooks is fairly simple and straight forward.

You can get the replacement parts from UES: http://ues.ch/

The OP is not English mother tongue.

Repair and réparation (the French word for repair) are getting mixed up.

It's a Inspiron Mini 10 (1012) Netbook. I would need to get it to a shop that sells Dell to get it fixed for free, it has guarantee left.

About the reparation word, I'm sorry, english is not my mother tongue and now I'm starting to mix all my languages together but I hope you understand what I was looking for.

That is why I defined the wrong word and provided the correct word rather than just making fun of the OP as others may have.
