The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, press <Fn> and the desired key after enabling the keypad.

How do i get the slash and question mark to show when i tipe

maybe the key is broken and not working when you press it. Normally all you have to do is press it to get the slash then press and hold the shift key and press it again to get the question mark.

You can always get it by using the virtual keyboard. Just point and click with your mouse on the key.

Go to and in the search box type: "" (without the quotes). Click the link to go to the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see a gray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under Find Software type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUAL KEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Also uncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during the download and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not the other junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is you want to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc., then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you were doing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also.

Right click and left click buttons don't work near touchpad on Dell Latitude E6500... tried function key with the F1 through F12 and couldn't figure it out... Can't scroll - turns into a wierd arrow...

Hello Dear,

It seems either the Drivers are not installed or there is some hardward issues(Cable disconnect or Dust).
For drivers you can check (Start > COntrol Panel > System > Properties > Device manager) There should not be any yellow , Red mark. If it is then you need to install the driver first.
If that is OK then you need to make sure that the cable connection inside the Keyboard panel are OK.
As a temporary basis you can just put some Palm Stroke on the Back of Touchpad.. That can resolve your issues.

You can restart also once.

With regards

**Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction**
