Dell External keyboard arrow keys not working.

There were not answers on this website, but I started trying keys and found the ''Scroll Lock'' key had been activated so that the arrow keys would only move the place on the file instead of from cell to cell. Live and learn!

Have dell inspirion1525. Screen is black. By holding down fn key and start key i get flashing lock with 9 and blue lock wih an A and blue lock with a down arrow. What do these mean?


Well the Flashing "lock with 9" is Num Lock, the "blue lock with an A" is Caps Lock, and the "blue lock with a down arrow" is Scroll Lock. Hope that answers that question.

Now for the screen being blank usually means there is an issue with either your LCD display or an issue with the laptops video card. Plug in an external monitor and boot up the laptop if you still get a blank screen then there is an issue with the laptop's video card. If you can see your screen on the external monitor then there is an issue with the connection of the LCD displayon your laptop. You can try ifxing it your sleve by opening up the laptop and making sure the connection is firm or you can take it somewhere to get it fixed.

Please rate if this helps

WHAT IS THE ICON ON TOP TO THE LEFT OF THE CAPS LOCK ICON? HOW DO YOU TURN IT OFF?


This is either the Num Lock or the Scroll Lock. To turn off the Num Lock, look at the top left of your number pad on the right side of the keyboard, and press the Num Lock key. To turn off the Scroll Lock, press that key in the middle of the top row of 3 keys above your arrow keys.

Hi, I can't remember what buttons to push on my keyboard to switch from one computer to the other with my belkin 2 port kvm switck? can you help me, Ive just set up the system in another office. Thanks...


Short answer:
There are two ways to switch from one machine to the other with the keyboard
1. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then the Up or Down arrow key.
2. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then enter 01 or 02.

Long answer (from the manual posted at www.belkin.com):
You can select which computer to operate by either the front-panel push button
located on the top of the Switch or through hot key commands. Note that it will
take 1-2 seconds for the video to display after switching. This is due to the
refresh of the video signal. A re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard
signal also takes place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper
synchronization is established.
You can conveniently change ports on the Switch through a keyboard command
sequence using the "SCROLL LOCK" key and up and down arrow keys. To send
commands to the Switch, press the "SCROLL LOCK" key twice within two seconds.
You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the up or down arrow
keys to switch between ports.

You can switch directly to any port by entering the Switch port number you wish
to use. For example, if you press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "2", the
computer on port 2 will be selected.
AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode, the Switch remains on one port for eight seconds before
switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode, press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "S".
Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode by design, in order to
prevent errors. If it were enabled, the user could move the mouse or use the
keyboard while the KVM Switch is switching to the next port. This could interrupt
communication between the computer and Switch that might cause erratic mouse
movement, or result in errant display of characters when using the keyboard.
To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar.

  6. Click on slk (in the top row of the on-screen keyboard). This will toggle the state of the scroll lock key. Notice that the scroll lock key is no longer outlined in red. Scroll lock is now off.

Keyboard Fn key


Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
