Remove the keyboard:

Reseat all connections and then restart -- see if that solves the problem, if not, connect an external mouse via usb to it -- go to your control panel > system > hardware > device manager, report back with what you see.

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010


you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

How do I get my Dell wireless keyboard to work after replacing the batteries?


There should be a small button on the bottom of the wireless receiver and another small button on the bottom of the keyboard. Press the button on the bottom of the reciever first, then quickly press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. This is the connect sequence needed to connect the two devices.

My HP laptop keys are not being recognized. I have rebooted many times. I'm not sure if I pressed a sequence of keys to make this happen or not. Please help. I am having to use voice recognition to type...


Try using a USB or PS2 external keyboard to see if that works. If it does, then there is a problem with the keyboard on the laptop. I would then try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard to see if that helps. You would go into Device Manager to reinstall the driver. Let me know if this helps you.

Dell inspiron 1525 battery not charging properly


You could try buying a new laptop battery. Typically laptop batteries lose their luster after a year.

If the laptop is booting up to a system clock for you to enter the correct date and time, then you may also need a new CMOS battery. They're a small battery on the motherboard.

Both batteries are fairly cheap but you may want to take the laptop to a certified tech to test or replace the CMOS.

OR if the laptop is still under warranty then get Dell to do it for you.

My daughters Dell d800 ..mouse problem


Boy, It's been awhile since I took mine apart, but rest assured, all Dells come apart with ease, so try and assemble again but watch carefully that ribbon cables are secure! I would just reassemble or plug in and test before the case is assembled. Dell motherboards work fine without a case for testing

Keyboard will not connect!?!


Normal 0 Assuming that you have good batteries installed, turn the Keyboard over and locate the small reset/connect button on the back of the keyboard and press it. Then try to see if it is working. If not try pressing the button on the receiver and then on the keyboard.
Hope this helps. Bud

Keyboard


If the keyboard has a reciever, make sure you press the button on both. also you may try to un-plug the USB cord from the computer for the reciever, turn the computer off, plug the reciever back in and turn the computer on again. it should say " New hardware found" or something to that effect. if it asks you to install it , try that. the omputer may simply nee to recognize the keyboard.

Dell Computer-MS Keyboard--HELP


YOU MAY HAVE TWO ISSUES:

KEYBOARD NOT CONNECTED
CMOS BATTERY IS STARTING TO FAIL

HOW MANY TIME DID THE LIGHTS FLASH.

DID YOU CHECK TO SEE IF THE KEYBOARD WAS EVEN CONNECTED, IT GOING TO BE A RIBBON WITH LITTLE WIRES GOING THROUGH THE RIBBON, THE RIBBON ONLY GOES IN ONE DIRRECTION,

THE OTHER PROBLEM IS IF THE CMOS BATTERY IS GETTING LOW THEN IT WILL NOT KEEP THE BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT THE COMPUTER SETTING CORRECT, THIS MEANS YOU COULD LOOSE THE MONITOR, KB, HD, TIME, OPERATIONAL SYSTEM, AND BOOT SEQUENCE. HARD DRIVE SETTINGS.

IF YOU JUST PICKED UP THE COMPUTER FROM THE SHOP
YOU SHOULD OF CALLED THEM AND EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM AND WHAT SHOULD YOU DO NOW.


RODGANDYSR.

P.S.

EVERY TIME YOU EVERY HAVE ANYONE ELSE WORK ON ANY OF YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT AND DEVICES, HAVE THEM EXPLAIN WHAT THEY DID IN SOMETHING YOU CAN UNDERSTAND SO YOU DONT MAKE THE SAME MISSTAKE AGAIN.
