There probly no way for you to fix this but the manufacturer can. Call them or go back to where you bought it and ask for a new one and tell them that this one's keys are scrambled up

Lcd display too bright


Dear Sue,

Could you please tell us the brand and model of your laptop so we can try to find a suitable solution for you problem?

Anyway... In general, most laptops have a pair of function keys marked with a symbol that looks like a sun. Pressing and holding the 'Fn' key while pressing a few times those two sun-marked key may incresae or decrease the brightness of your display.

Regards,

Miguel L. Martins

(P.S.: The 'function keys' are those keys marked F1 to F12 at the top of the keyboard)

I can't turn the fn key off


The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it.

Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

Some key doesn't work


go to dell care,they will change the keyboard.i think now your laptop is not within the warranty period because it is a 2006 model.so you need to pay for your work to dell care.if you want to dispose off then dont do it with dell care for which you dont get any money.its better get it repaired from someone and sell it out.Else there is another way too,buy an external keyboard!

The shift key,backspace,delete buttons are not working


here are some tips to solve keyboard problems:

How to fix Keyboard problems:

1. Due to wear and tear, the keys for certain characters on a keyboard will wear out. This happens for more commonly used characters. If the problem is due to loose or improper contact, you can try to fix the key back. If this does not work, you can replace the key with a new key purchased from a computer store. Love your keyboard by handling it gentle.

2. Sometimes the keyboard drivers can get corrupted. You need to change them or test the driver.

Go to My Computer :::>Hardware:::>Device Manager and uninstall the keyboard. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Hardware:::> uninstall keyboard. Restart the computer, the keyboard should get reinstalled automatically.The keyboard should start working again. If not so get keyboard drivers by updating windows or manufacturer web site.

Always use computer or antivirus protection - run a free computer antivirus scan or any other anti-virus since virus can corrupt system files. get one now!

3. Try to swap the keyboard with another keyboard which works properly on another computer. If the alternate keyboard has the same problem, there may be a problem with the keyboard circuit on motherboard.

If the alternate keyboard works properly, check if the keyboard cable is properly connected, whether wires in the keyboard cable are connected properly.

4. Open out the keyboard and check if the keyboard fuse is working. If the fuse has blown, replace it with another fuse of the same rating and size.

5. If you spill water or any liquid on the keyboard, switch off the computer immediately. Unplug the keyboard, turn the keyboard upside down and keep it out for drying either in the sun or under a fan. If some other sticky fluid has been spilled on the keyboard, use a moist cotton swab or ear bud to clean computer or wipe away the fluid. Only when it is completely dry, (it will take a minimum of 24 hours depending on the weather), connect the keyboard back to your computer.

6. For USB keyboard change the USB ports or unplug the keyboard from the USB port then plug it back until it responds or detected. Usually the keyboard led(indicator) lighting up should show a successful connection.

7. Set the speed of character repeatation. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

8. Set the blinking rate of cursor. For windowsXP Start:::>Control panel:::>Keyboard:::>Speed:::>make adjustments.

9. Go for a typing course or tutorial on how to use keboard features.

10. For discolouration or fading of white keyboard. Use good computer cleaners,soft cloth, whiteners or vinegar mixed with water to keep the original white colour or clean. don't use bleach or rough material to clean. disconnect the power supply. switching to good black keyboard can comfort you.

How do i set up my inspiron laptop so i ca have a desktop keyboard?


I dont get exactly what do you mean by desktop keyboard...but ...first I assumed that you have damaged your keyboard ..or you just are not comfortable with the one on the laptop and you need to plug one external...this is easy ...all you need it is a USB keyboard ...which you will plug and go ...all you have to do ..its just plug it in usb slot...and restart the laptop ...if you have a ps2 slot for keyboard ...it will work too..usually dont need a driver ..just plug and restart ..
if you are talking about a keyboard virtual on the desktop.. you just go at start ...all programs...accessories ...accessibility...and click on screen keyboard...
this will place a virtual keyboard on screen tht you will be able to handle by mouse...

hope it'll work..
else better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....
