When you turn on the laptop, just before Windows starts to load tap the F8 key a couple of times. If you get a menu, choose Last Known Good.

If that does not do it, and the mouse still works fine, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run System Restore.

Choose a date from before the keyboard problem and let it reboot. Should solve the problem.

    Try attaching an external keyboard. If that works, then I believe your built in keyboard has failed.

    Dell has replacement keyboards that are relatively easy to replace yourself. You can order them and also pick up the manual that shows how to install it on their website. Or you can simply continue to use the external keyboard.

    Let me know how far you want to go on this. I worked for Dell and the break down manuals for laptops are very well written.

I cant connect extra monitor


I presume the VGA cable is OK and the external monitor is good.
On the "F" keys, (function Keys) at the top of your keyboard, one will have a diagremme of a laptop next to an empty screen, maybe F5, press and hold the FN ket whilst pressing the F5 key.
That will toggle between internal, both and external monitors.
For more information, go to the Dell website and download as required.
Hope that helps.

Function keys are not working with windows7 on dell inspiron Laptop


The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

Hope this helps.

Keyboard model: A196. the ESC key does not work


Hi:
Laptop keyboards are really not repairable at all. I often buy replacements on ebay, as they usually are only $15 to $20. Find a seller located in the USA for quicker delivery.

Dell Inspiron 6000 keyboard issues


Sounds like something got spilled on it and keys are sticking underneath. Keyboards are quite easy to remove. Check online for help in removing. I suggest you clean it with rubbing alcohol (after it is removed) and spray dry quickly with compressed air. If that dont help then order one online. Tons of dell parts on ebay. Good Luck.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Wifi?


Look on the keyboard and see if it has a key with a symbol for a wireless device. If it does, click it with the FN (function) to enable or disable it.
You can also see if there is a switch on the front or sides of the laptop for a wireless device.
Finally, go to start>control panel>system. Access the device manager. Click the plus next to network devices and see if any wireless devices are listed.

Number lock won't turn on


When enabled, this allows the user to type numbers by pressing the keys on the number pad, rather than having them act as up, down, left, right, page up, end, and so forth.
in bios is where you can set number lock to enable at start up
so restart and enter set up(bios) and change it to lock numbers at start up
if you need more help just let me know
