puddy cat has stood on whats called a sticky key if you have a user book it will tell you how to release it.i cant quite remember the exact key to use but you have to press and hold down the fn key then hit one of the F keys.F2 for example, i just cannot remember which F key it is. hope this helps
If you replaced the keyboard with a Dell replacement 1501 keyboard and it still doesn’t work then yes the motherboard will probably have to be replaced. If your son spilled water on the laptop it could clear up after it completely dries. If it was juice, soft drink or sport drink the laptop could develop other issues. The syrup in these kinds of drinks don’t evaporate, they just remain there and accumulate foreign particles like dust, hair, dirt and eventually start to corrode electrical contacts like acid. Similar to the terminal posts on a car battery. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience. Thank You.
This is a problem I haven’t stumbled on before and it bugged
me so I have a suggestion.
-Open the Control Panel (generally on the Start menu) -Open the Regional and Language folder -Click on Languages tab -Click on Details
See if the keyboard layout is set to ‘US.’
Now, what I don’t seem to find is how to choose something
different without actually changing ‘Language’ itself.
Win ‘Help’ gave this result when searching on “changing keyboard
“You can switch to a different keyboard layout
or enter text in other languages without changing keyboards. However, the key
labels may no longer match the characters you are entering. Use Regional and
Language Options in Control Panel for changing languages and keyboard layouts.” If this does or doesn't work, please post back as it might help others either do what you want to do or avoid paying any attention to me <grin>
