    Directly from Dell?
    Next to none spare parts ob 3rdcparty websites as all of those machines are still on warranty.
    Replacing keyboard its a breeze.
    First time I removed it one of flex tapes was stuck on a foILll protecting PCB, andcI was forced to remove motherboard to free it so be careful and RTFM. :)

    You can contact your local Dell spare parts department and they should be able to sell you a keyboard. Otherwise, they're also available on eBay. Specific steps to replace the keyboard can be found in the online manual for the system.

    Hi ov_Darkness!

    I bought these ones for my 7750 and they worked very well:

    Hi there.
    Does anyone know if the 7750 with the intel gpu only comes with the dgff adapter to connect for example an nvidia dgff card?
    Thanks

    No...
    If you have the HDMI/DP pass-through card (which is what you get if you buy a system without a dGPU), it will only have one DGFF connector, you'll have to source a few more of them to install an actual dGPU card. (You'll also need to come up with the DGFF power connector, and replace the system heatsink as well.)

    Yes, the pass-through card would not include the power cable.
    There was some discussion about this part earlier in the thread, I think. The part is system-specific. (You can't use a 7550 power cable in a 7750, nor can you use a 7730/7740 power cable in a 7750.) Even though the actual connector end seems to be the same between systems, the length and orientation is different.
