This sounds more like a corrupt driver than a hardware problem-
Go to the Control Panel, open the System folder, then Hardware, then Device Manager. Find and open the keyboard item, highlight the keyboard shown and delete it.
Reboot your system and force Windows to find it again and install the driver.
If this doesn't work, follow the same procedure except delete the mouse listing.
Reboot and Win should find it again and also reinstall the driver.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


    If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

    If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

    Internal mouse will not move and lights are red/orange


    this might be a problem with the mouse lock..
    check ur mouse lock button just above the mouse pad.
    if its locked, unlock it & try again.

    if its not locked, then go to device manager via right clicking My Computer, properties
    select mouse device & expand the tab
    uninstall the mouse, dont worry it can be done without mouse.
    now press the windows key from keyboard, and restart ur system via pressing Start key, +u, +r for windows Xp & for Windows Vista, press ALT+F4 then select restart.

    After ur machine boots up, it will automatically detect the mouse & reinstall the required drivers. its done

    if u like my post, pls rate me.. i really need some good ratings..
    Thanks

    On my hp 6735b laptop I would like to turn off the scroll zone on the touch pad if possible.


    You don't specify what system are you using. In Windows you have to go to Control Panel, Mouse and Pointing Device properties, and find your touchpad options there, including the scroll areas.
    If it's not there, chances are there is a separate application, either in Control Panel, or in the Start Menu, for setting up the touchpad. You can also look in the system tray beside the clock - often there's an icon there for the pointing device.

    Try an external mouse and if that works your touchpad is bad and needs to be replaced.

    there are combinations of function or "hot keys" for enabling or disabling these functions. The NuLk is a combo of the functin key and the NumLk key pressed simultaneously. The scroll lock is the one keeping your mouse from working properly. I'm not familiar with your particular unit to advise which keys are necessary to disable Scroll lock, but they should be marked. Also, some notebooks have a switch to disable the mousepad...Usually indicated by a light located above the pad itself. Good luck Harvester3
