Delete, Insert, Home and End keys stopped working. Is there a way to make these keys work again. Maybe I hit a combination of keys at the same time to stop them from working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, BAM
Sorry to hear about your keyboard problem. Keyboards go bad and I don't really think it was a key combination or anything you did. I've replaced many, many keyboards in Latitude D610 machines and I can tell you that they do go bad after a while.
The good news is that if you want to replace it, you can find them on eBay or other sites at a reasonable price. Replacing one takes less than five minutes and all you need is a small flat head screwdriver.

Hello, There is a very good chance it's one of two problems. First, while theoretically you can connect tons of USB products, sometimes USB ports can be kind of hinky... Try unplugging something else USB based and plugging in the mouse or try several different ports. Also be sure it's not plugged into a USB hub and is going directly into your computer. If this works play with the arrangement of your USB devices until you find a configuration that works, maybe you'll have to switch out a printer or external drive while using your USB mouse... If this doesn't provide a solution the next thing to do is to uninstall the pointer device driver in device manager and allow it to re-install. If you don't have an alternate mouse to complete the task, here is the keyboard shortcuts for Windows although depending on your version of Windows it may be slightly different. -First hold the windows key and hit the r key (win+r) this will bring up the run menu -Next type mmc this will bring up a management console -Next press the ALT key and hit the down arrow key (this should drop down the file menu, if it doesn't please try ALT+F) -Use the arrow key to scroll down to Add/Remove snap in and hit enter. -Use the arrow key to scroll down to Device Manager and hit ALT+A to add the device manager to the console. Hit enter. -Make sure local computer is selected if this menu comes up and hit enter. -Hit enter one more time bringing you back to the console with the device manager added. -Hit tab to get to the center console and scroll down to mouse. (If tab isn't doing anything please hit the ALT key once.) -Hit enter to open the tree if it isn't already -Scroll down to mice and other pointing devices (or something along these lines) and hit the right arrow key to expand the tree again. -Select the USB mouse with arrow keys -Hit the alt key again then the down arrow (not together) and then the right arrow key until you get to the action menu and use the arrow key to go down to uninstall and hit enter. -Wait a moment and then go back to the action menu (you may have to hit tab just keep trying tab and the down key (not together) until a menu opens. Go over to the action menu again and choose scan for hardware changes. The computer should recognize the mouse and now work. I hope this helps you. Thank you.
Go into Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Languages Tab, Details Button, Change Default Input Language to English - US, and remove any Keyboards listed that are not English US. Most likely you have set a French Input as a default. Once chnages are made, log out of Windows and log back in.
it happens, even i have DELL 610 notebook that has some keys not working, the only option is to change the keyboad layout.....
in India all parts can be replaced/repaired but abroad is a different story....the reparing cost is equal to the new....just trash the laptop once it's life is thru....
This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys. Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk. Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off. Your keyboard should now work normally.
Any more problems, let me know!
