Buzzy, Yes you can connect an external keyboard to your PC. Some newer ones no longer have the round, PS2 connector so in that case you?ll need to use a USB keyboard. Please note that if you go the USB route you should start your PC and log in first, and then connect the keyboard. Windows will then load the drivers and you should be good to go. Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Laptop keyboard- when using the letter t opens a new tab.. sometimes using the key r will close a tab. It happens when surfing or composing emails.

It sounds like the Ctrl key is stuck. Tap both of them a couple of times to get unstuck. This should work. Best of luck to you :)

When i type a-key on the keyboard then a1 appears on the screen in Dell inspiron 1525 laptop,please assist me to get resolve this problem

Most likely you have your numlock key turned on by mistake. Look on your computer and see if there is a light with a padlock and a number in the padlock. It is probably lit up. Now look for a key on your keyboard called "numlock" and press the key once. See if the light goes off. When you have the numlock key on some of the letter keys will work as numbers like a calculator. When you turn it off the keys are back to letters.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter

This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Dell inspiron 1525 keyboard letter a doesnt work

They sell replacement keyboards for this model on Ebay. However, from personal experience with another Dell model - sometimes the connecting cord gets pinched, and some keys go dead. On my laptop, grip it the wrong way and keys go dead. Grip it another way, and they work again. But opening it up and fastening the keyboard again, then screwing it back together also might work.

But whatever you do, check this page:
It has instructions for fixing a lot of problems on Dells, including replacing the keyboard on this one, and also replacing single keys.

Dell Laptop - Keyboard "Fn" is causing problems!

I think it is not the Fn key but the NumLock that is activated. Look for the key labeled NumLk , this is the number lock. Also check if the light on the notbook with a number (usually number 1) is on. If it is on, yo must deactivate the numlock by pressing it again. It works in toggle mode. Sometimes the numlock is activated together with the shift key, sometimes with the function key.
