Re: the markings on my keys have faded or disappeared...
I would think the best solutions would be to find a stencil kit for models and some model paint. Align, brush, align, brush, align brush. Dry... and reusable :). For some symbols you might have to do it by hand though... just paint slowly on those and be extremely neat... if you're a guy, see if you get a woman to write it, hehe (My fiance' writes on ALL the burned discs now...)

Windows Operating System Product Key? If so, it's on the side of the computer on the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It's the series of 5 letters and numbers.
Microsoft Office Suite Product Key? It's on the package of the cd that the software came in.
There is a Product Key Finder that you can download and install that will find all of the Microsoft Product Keys and display them to you.
Try the link below to download it. Also when it comes up and trys to install other things such as Ask.com or has a check mark in any other box just remove the check mark because you only want the Product Key Finder installed, not the other junk.
i can give you a sensible suggestion; on a little piece of paper write out the name of the alphabet on it and stick it on the right key on your keyboard, till you finish assigning a key for the faded keys. Good luck
The blinking question mark means that you macintosh can't find a bootable disk. It has nothing to do with the VGA connection. More than likely, your directory structure on the disk is bad. An excellent product to fix this is Disk Warrior. It has saved more hard drives for me than I care to think about. Worth every penny.
As far as booting up from a disk, just put in the CD and hold down the C key until you see the spinning icon.
You could also try these to things if you don't want to purchase disk warrior, but I don't think they will work. Hold down the shift key while you boot until you see the apple logo. The shift key is to boot it in safeboot mode. Or, you could also reset the pram:
Shut down the computer.
Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
Turn on the computer.
Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
If you have your DELL restore disc you shouldn't need a key. DELL is among a number of PC manufacturers that can have what are called OEM embedded keys. Which is a fancy way of saying they put the key in a routine that is run by the restore disc so Widows shouldn't as you for one.
If you REALLY want your key though you can just flip your laptop on its head. On the bottom of their Laptops DELL puts a sticker that has the product key for the operating system that the Laptop shipped with.
If that sticker is damaged to the point of NOT being able to be read you will need to contact DELL's customer support. They will likely ask for your serial number and then they can provide you with a valid serial number.
