Since this is a laptop, you might be having some trouble with the motherboard this time. Test the keyboard functionality first by doing F12 on the Dell splash screen. Then select boot to utility partition if you have the option. Select custom test among 4 diagnostic options. If the keyboard fails on the test, then you need to call up dell to have the motherboard replaced since the keyboard has been replaced.

How do I find numerical lock button on Dell windows 8 keyboard?


On the Dell 0Y3740 for the Dell Inspiron 500M or Latitude D800, the Num Lock (Lock replaced by a symbol) key is on the top row of keys. It's a short row and the Num Lock is the third key from the left (or the fifth key from the right). In blue, the key has Scroll and the lock symbol.

On a slightly different model, the key may be in a different spot. However, it will probably have a similar placement near the Print Screen and Pause/Break keys. (Usually these keys will be near the function keys or just above them for a keyboard without a separate 10-key area.)

I hope this helps.

My keyboard seems to be locked and will not respond to anything including the mouse pad on my Dell XPS notebook


Press fn key and whichever function key at the top of your board that has a lock symbol on it at the same time. You're in keylock and this will disarm it.

Cap locked - still cant get at symbol


You mean the "@" symbol? You should press the shift key(hold) and press 2 on the alphabet keypad. Remember on the ALPHABET not on the numeric keypad.

British Pound symbol


If you have Windows XP, click on Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and choose "Character Map" - you should see and be able to copy the symbol to the clipboard you need from there.


Good Luck!

Ican"t type numbers can you please help


From Dell user manual:
The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, press <Fn> and the desired key after enabling the keypad.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

Dell Lattitue C400 keyboard partially not responding


Hi!

If you have replaced the keyboard and still the issue is there, then you are right. The controller is shot. You need to replace the motherboard again for this type of issue.
