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.

The C600 keyboard connector is a ribbon cable with a push down to connect block. When one side of the keyboard keys do not work it is usually because the pins in the keyboard socket do not make a good contact with the ribbon cable.

Remove the keyboard and visually inspect the pins in the connector.
If necessary you can prise them back into the correct position using a sewing needle or something similar to get behind the pins.

Make sure you discconect the power supply and battery before you attempt.

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:
http://repair4laptop.org/disassembly_dell.html
It has instructions for fixing a lot of problems on Dells, including replacing the keyboard on this one, and also replacing single keys.

Hp pavilion dv1000 laptop pc keyboard not working properly.


Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.

S-video not working with TV


Look at your Function keys. It will be either F3, or F5 depending on model. Just look for the key with the picture of a little monitor on it. Some models use 2 different keys to go back and forth between outputs. These keys toggle the video between the laptops LCD and an external monitor.

Hold down the "FN" key (located on the lower left of the keyboard), while tapping the above mentioned Function key.

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.
