When I want to type punctuations on my Dell Inspiron e.g. ALT 137 it brings up the "save as" window - how weird. I tried playing with the regional settings but to no avail


Check the NUM LOCK of your latop because ALT 137 will bring puctuation if NUM lock is turned off..If turned on it will give you save as........(TRY VICE VERSA)

My grandfather has a Dell inspiron 1501 and the num lock key turns on automatically when the computer boots up. The problem with this is the button is too small for him to see to turn off amediately so...


Hi,

Please follow these steps.

Click Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

Please let me know whether this works or no.

The lock key is on and that freezes my word document


I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 pv and I am not sure what you mean by the "lock" key. There are 2 lock keys on the computer: Number lock - which doubles as the Scroll lock when combined with the "Fn" key. Either of these can be toggled on or off. To enable or disable, simply press the key. If the lock for Caps or Num is on, the led just left of the power button will be lit.
On the Inspiron 6000, behavior for the NUM lock can be set in the system set-up. I am assuming the issue you are having has to do with how the lock is configured in the setup. Try adjusting the behavior to see if this helps fix your problem.

Dell Inspiro 6400 not starting up


If the Num lock is lit constant, and the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock keys are flashing, the system is reporting a memory error. Power off the system, remove the battery, and follow the user manual from support.dell.com to reseat the memory module(s). If the error persists, you may need to replace the memory and/or the system board of the portable.

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

Laptop 6 keys are typing number instead letters


Your Num Lock is on. Press the Num Lock key and that should turn it off and you should be able to type normally again.
