Is it a flat key or a normal keyboard type key?

If its a flat key make sure the things underneath the key are flat against the key and put it back on its spot and just press down on it until it clicks. You may need to press hard but please don't press too hard or you might do some damage.

    It depends on what you want to do.



    If you want to keep them from doing anything on it I would use CA Parental Controls. Its made by Computer Associates and lets you set what times they are allowed on and such,



    If you want to keep them off your PC period I would just hide it.

How can i tell if my keyboard is backlit in inspiron 15r?


If you press any key on the keyboard, the back light should come on automatically. If not, hold down (Fn) function key and press "right arrow" with a blue florescent symbol until the back light is lit. Pressing the "right arrow" key while holding down the (Fn) key lits the back light and can also reduce, increase the light.
Hope this helps

How do u put a enter button bk on


If the plasic clips are damaged then you can get replacements from ebay very cheaply, just search for you laptops model number + replacement keys, most will come with the clips and instructions on how to fit them.

If they are intact then they will just clip back onto the keyboard, if you tell me the laptop model i can tell you how, there should also be a little rubber "spring" which allows the key to spring back up. for most keyboards they will go back on with the wider edge at the bottom.

You can try reseating the keyboard connector. If that doesn’t work, the keyboard needs to be replaced. To reseat the keyboard connector, follow this link: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1084976
Be sure to remove AC power and the Battery.

Keys dont work.alternative way to change brightness?


Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.
