Try booting to Safe Mode and see if the problem still exists. Press F8 when you're on the Dell Screen and choose Safe Mode. If the problem does not happen in Safe Mode, then do this:

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type msconfig
4. Choose Diagnostic Startup
5. Restart to Normal Mode.

Hi my dell vostro key board has locked ,right hand side of keyboard blue light with a lock and 9 inside it .tried everything can you help


The 9 lock key means that your Number lock key is on. The blue light usually means that your blue tooth is on. Try connecting an external USB keyboard to see if it functions normally. If so then you need to have your keyboard replaced.

Hi, to find out if the “Keyboard is compatible with your system?” You can do the following: Shutdown the Computer, connect the Keyboard to your computer. Turn on the computer. If, the “Keyboard have a Power Button?”(Turn on) the keyboard. Go to, Control Panel; click on Device Manager. Click to open Keyboards, in the (Keyboard Properties) Click on Driver (Box), next click to Update Drivers! Click OK. Restart the computer. Check keyboards’ functionality. Thanks paul7of9

Some keyboard button not workin on dell laptop


Did you spill any liquids into the keyboard? If you did you may have damage the keyboard PCB and it will need to be replaced. One thing you can try to do is to first take a picture of the keyboard so you know where the keys go back to that you removed. Then use a small screwdriver to remove the non-functioning keys. Be very careful and do not use too much force or you may damage the key. Inspect the inner buttons and see if they are sticking. You can use a cotton swab or q-tip and rubbing alchohol to try and clean the inner part of the keyboard. Sticky liquids can cause the inner keyboard buttons to stick and mal-function. If the keyboard PCB is damaged you can either replace the keyboard or buy a usb keyboard to use on the laptop. The OS should recognize the keyboard after you plug it in.

Same as above, with my laptop being studio XPS 1640


Well, as long as your pc is under warranty, Call Dell and have the keyboard replaced. it takes 24 hours to order the part, and 15 minutes to replace it. By this time tomorrow, you could be all set like a new 'vette. Good Luck!

Keyboard Error


Sounds like intermittent keyboard failure. If it is the old style keyboard connector (small round jack), shut down, remove it completely, and then plug it back in. If it is a USB keyboard, you are probably having USB keyboard support problems. Try moving the keyboard to a different USB port - usually the ones closest to the parallel port or network jack that are sure to be on the motherboard itself.

Hope this helps...
