Keyboard shortcut Hi, is there any way to turn on a Dell laptop using an attached adaptive keyboard? The power button is hard to access but an IntelliKeys keyboard has been attached to the laptop. Can the laptop be turned on using a key on the IntelliKeys keyboard? Thanks!

Use the following keys on the keyboard in a combination..

CLTR + ALT + DELETE

But make sure the computer is not powered off.. it should be in the standby or hibernating mode...
take care..

Dell latitude d800 not switching on ?


I may have addressed this question earlier. If your Dell shows absolutely no sign of life... no LEDs, no nothing and you know for certain the battery and/or power adapter is good then...

If you have access to a docking station (ANY Dell dock that will mate with the bottom connector on your D800), put the D800 in the dock and use the power button on the docking station.

If the laptop powers up, you may have a simply problem with the laptop "Press to turn on" button.

ABOVE THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD...
Use a small flat screwdriver blade to remove the Center Control Cover (just beneath the display/cover hinge and above the F1-F12 keys). Locate the cover's flat ribbon cable connector above the Page Up key. Pull off and carefully reinstall. Try the power button now. If it works, put everything back together. Otherwise seek profession help.

Shortcuts have locked up on my pc


Conflicting Extensions


Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.


Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.


Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.


Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.


Key Reassignments


Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.


If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.


For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.


If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

Virus Infection


Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.


If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.


Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.


Browser Software


Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.


Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.


For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.


Hope this helps.

My Dell D620 will not turn on. Battery is charged and AC adapter is working. When the power button is pressed nothing happens (the power on light on the laptop does not light up). Does this sound like...


I would start with the miniboard that the power button is attached to. If this is part of the keyboard then that is what you need to try first. Replacement parts should be relatively inexpensive as this is a standard business laptop used everywhere. The D series was very popular...you may even be able to use parts from a D610 or a D630. I would start looking for parts on eBay and go from there...

Let me know if you need anything else!

When you say you "tried turning it on with the battery removed", did you leave it plugged into the wall with the charging adapter at the time? Please clarify that you tried to use it while plugged in without the battery and it would not power up? When you plugged it in without the battery, was the green charging light on? Or did you get no power light at all?

With your battery in, try using a different outlet to plug into. Plug it into another outlet and when the green charging light comes on press and hold your power button on your keyboard and do not release it for 30 to 45 seconds. Tell me if this boots up the pc even if just for a moment?

There are three lights on your keyboard that should come on when the laptop is plugged in and turned on. One is the power light, the other is the battery charging light and the last one is the hard drive indicator that looks like a round cylinder on the picture. Tell me when you plug it into the outlet and the battery charge light is on, does the hard drive light come on and/or flicker when you try to power up the laptop? How many lights come on when you press and hold down the power button with the cord plugged into the wall?

Dell lattitude d620 won't factory restore ?


Hi,


Please go through the below step, you can able to do it.


1) Shut down the Dell Latitude D620 if it's currently powered on. Click "Start" in the left-hand corner of the screen to access Windows' shut down options. Alternatively, press and hold the Latitude's power button, located on the top edge of the laptop's keyboard.


2) Turn on the computer by pressing the laptop's power button.


3) Press and hold "F8" on the top of the laptop's keyboard immediately after turning the computer on. If the Windows logo appears on the screen, you're too late and must repeat Steps 1 through 3 again. If you pressed it in time, a list of text options will appear on the screen.


4) Use your keyboard's arrow keys to scroll down to "Repair Your Computer." Push the "Enter" key on your keyboard.


5) Choose a language from the next list and select "Next." If you've password-protected your laptop, you will be prompted to enter your user name and password at this time.


6) Press "Dell Factory Image Restore." A new window will appear. Click "Next" and select the option for reformatting the hard drive and restoring the factory condition of the laptop.

DELL Precision M65- cannot turn on. Even take off batt then turn ON, or using adaptor without battery still cannot turn ON. The LED light is ON but no visual/screen. Please help. Many thanks...


Hi,
Verify the AC power adapter displays a solid green or blue light. Older Latitude™ C Series laptop computer AC adapters may not have a light.
Run the diagnostics on the system as follows , connect both the battery and the Ac adapter before running the diagnostics

  1. Ensure the system is powered off.
  2. Remove all external peripherals.
  3. Press and hold the <Fn> key on the keyboard.
  4. Continue to hold the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.
  5. Release both buttons.
  6. Note which lock LEDs are lit (lock LEDS are next to the power button)
And proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below

Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500


See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).

Thank You.
