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.

My dell latitude c400 will not hook to a wireless connection it says make sure you wireless switch is on, says no wireless connections in range and im sitting right to my router, what am i doing wrong?


Look for a little wireless icon in purple on the keyboard in the F keys up top. Example F9.

You hold down the Fn on the bottom of your keyboard and at the same time press the (example F9) to enable wireless.

It varies by model and I don't know which F key it is on the c400. You should be able to tell.

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.

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!

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.
