It is probably because it goes into hibernation. When they drop into power save mode computers seem to get confused when you wake them up. My best advice is either log off when it won't be in use or turn off the power saving option so the computer won't go to sleep

My Dell XPS M1530 laptop freezes after using my internet browser for a period of time. This all started when my Trend Micro was updating and never finished. I uninstalled it and now have a newer version....


Are you using any type of cooling pad? This problem can happen when the laptop overheats, even if you are letting it sit idle. Another thing you should do is run a diagnostics test and post any problem reports you receive.

I am typing and I get numbers instead of letters. Is there something I can change


Hi,

You have accidentally turned the Num Lock on.

Now depending on the model there are a couple of ways to turn it back off.

1, just hit the Num Lock key and see if its off (type something)
2, Hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key, again type something.




Regards.

Arrow keys


If the keys are working on a notepad or else while typing it the issue is not with the arrow keys but with the key controls of the game that you are playing. Please change the setting of the keys while playing game or else try playing another game using the same arrow keys, i m sure it would work.

Your keyboard logic chip is in need of therapy.

Replacement of keyboard warranted.

Now, I thought that it might be a redesignation of your language code, but that proved not to be the case.
