Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook

Open Question

Single keystroke causes two different characters to display.

When I type the g key, g5 is displayed onscreen. When I type h, I get h6. Also, the delete key deletes not the next character but the character after the next one on the page. The computer is a dell inspiron 1200 laptop.

Thanks for any help/suggetions.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

My screen keeps going upside down and my keyboard types other characters


UPSIDE DOWN DISPLAY
An upside down image - this is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

How to connect to tv



Depends on what type of ports your Computer has and what type of ports your TV has. The easiest connection is to try to connect using the ports that they both have. Otherwise, if they have different ports then you will need some type of converter that goes between the two of them to make them communicate.

Most computers have a VGA port, does the TV have a VGA Port? New computers have a HDMI port, does the TV have a HDMI Port? If so you the connections that are alike or you will need a converter.

Once you have them connected, you just have to select the Input on the TV. Most times if you use VGA then you select PC or Computer as the input. There should be an HDMI input selection if you use HDMI connections.

Reboot the computer and the display might appear on the tv. If not you will have to hit some keystrokes to toggle the display between the computer and the tv. Most times on the computer you will hit the FN function key and one of the F1 thru F12 keys that controls the display on an external. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct Function key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the display.

My laptop keyboard not working normally, keys not display the keys i want to type, display the other character on the keyboard...my laptop model ASUS eee PC 1001


Hello,

This is because you have Num Lk activated.
To deactivate, hold down the Fn key and press NumLk (it's the same key as insert)

Now you will have the normal characters when typing.

My Dell Vostro 1000 laptop keyboard (right side) keys are not typing what I type. It is like they are out of sync. Can you help? (I am currently using a different computer to type this.


Num Lk will cause the keys on the right-hand side of your keyboard to display the alternate characters printed in blue. Just press the Num Lk key--it's the fifth key from the top right corner of your keyboard--to deselect, and your problem will vanish.

Keyboard displaying double character


Could be several things. If dirty or under humid conditions, you might be able to just remove the keyboard and clean off the touch pad buttons. If not, I did a simple google search for the keyboard and found dozens for sale online for around 25 to 30 dollars.

Most notebooks have a keystroke that enables the external video port for presentations.

According to the manual for the T60, your Fn +F7 key combination does the following:

"Apply a presentation scheme directly, with no need to start Presentation Director. To disable this function and use the Fn+F7 key combination for switching a display output location, start Presentation Director, and change the settings."

"Switch a display output location
v External monitor (CRT display)
v Computer display and external monitor (LCD + CRT display)
v Computer display (LCD)"

"Notes:
1. This function is not supported if different desktop images are displayed on the computer display and the external monitor (the Extend desktop function).
2. This function does not work while a DVD movie or a video clip is playing."

"To enable this function, do as follows when you log on to Windows 2000 or Windows XP:
Note: Multiple users can log on to a single operating system by using different user IDs. Each user needs to do the following:
1. Start Windows 2000 or Windows XP, and log on to the system.
2. Start Presentation Director, and change the Fn+F7 settings."
