Typing on a DELL Inspiron 1525 keyboard, the typing often appears somewhere else to the left on the line or a couple of lines up.

This problem can be very frustrating! It is typically from you hand moving over the touch pad to type on the keys. It would be lovely if they weren't designed so. To reduce the problem change the sensitivity of the touch pad to a lower level so it is not as sensitive.

Occasionally the keyboard locks up on our Dell Inspiron 1521. We know this because the NUMLOCK symbol lights when this occurs.. We can not disable the NUMLOCK and can not type anything. Have to reboot....

Go to the Dell website and go to downloads...then they will ask you what type and model of computer you have. Fill in all the information which some of the numbers that they will need will be on the tower either top or side or back...once you tell them the model you have they will even be able to help you with where to find that information. Once you get to the download page, look for any updates that relates to your key board and download them or anything else since this could be related to a virus. After you get the updates necessary for you computer...see if the problem goes probably will.
