This could be due to stickey keys. Tap the Shift button 5 times.The sticky keys menu will come up. Under the keyboard tab uncheck all option and click on Apply and OK.

You might want to try typing on safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you see the Dell Logo. If the same weird characters appear, then this would be an OS software issue. Doing Repair or OS Reinstall would resolve it. You can also try another keyboard to see if it is a keyboard problem.

Why is it my touch screen workks, but my fold out keyboard os locked and buttons are not working. the letter buttons. help please.


the touch screen is not connected the same as your keyboard the screen is direct hardware connected and youre keyboard and mouse are connected as bluetooth devices. you shoud have what is reffered to as a .dongle, which plugs into any comuter usb port, and talks to the keyboard and mouse. first check or replace the batteries inn both the mouse and the keyboard, then make to turn on the switch on the backside of the keyborad. Then push the button,connect, on the back of the dongle, and finally push the connect button on the bottomside of the mouse.The mouse and dongle should flash if they are talking to each other.

If you have an old keyboard and mouse that plug directly into the computer then they are hard wired directly to the motherboard by sockets. these are not repairable. but first go to start-botom left corner and click on the icon and go to control panel and select keyboard and rest all defaults such as keyboard language, rebbot and try again...my keyboard after installing defaults to french canada and i have to change to us otherwise my question mark becomes a french e. I hope this helps

Letter j on the keyborad is not funtioning. In this text I have copy- pasted, and not by typing from the keyboard.


Possible you might have to remove the keyboard pads to confirm for a cleaning job. The pads can be dirty or worn out on the J key as you can try and swap if the pads are too bad.

Well, My HP Mini notebook keyborad was working fine, and now the right hand side of the key board is all muggled up the letters have changed into numbers and some of the symbols wont work, can you tell me...


They keyboard has probably gone faulty, OR the keyboard controller chip. The only way to really find out is to try a replacement. As an aside you could use a USB keyboard at a pinch.

Question mark key always comes up as a french letter e -


I use 2 different keyboard types too.
Have you tried pressing [Ctrl]+[Shift] to change the keyboard type you are in. Even if you choose a default language in a program all other program will still use the other keyboard type, hope this helps.

Wireless keyborad


Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

Inspiron 2650 Laptop keyboard is locked.


If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.

I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.

I hope this helps.

Logitech MX-3000 wireless keyboard not working.


Hi There,

I had exactly the same problem as this, and was able to solve it by turning off "secure mode" on the keyboard (which stopped it encrypting all the keystrokes) by taking the following steps:

1) Press Ctrl + Alt +F12
2) Press connect button on the receiver
3) Press connect button on the keyboard
4) Press escape key
See this post on the logitech forums for details:

Hope this works as well for you as it did for me!
