Hi,
Might be that @ key is swaped with the : and vice versa.
This happens because of the language settings so go in control pannel and go to the language and regional settings and select the laguage as English US inplace of UK.
If then also the issue is not resolved then u will have to format the machine and while formatting select the English US then only the issue will get resolved.

I have a stuck key on my lab top computer but i do not know witch one is stuck how do i determine witch key is stuck. this is on my dell latitude c610 labtop


Hi:
There is not an easy way to see which key is sticking on your laptop. The good news is that a replacement keyboard will fix the problem, and it is easy to swap out, and not too expensive. They are usually only about $20 on ebay, and instructions are available too. If you buy a keyboard, and don't feel up to changing it, most computer shops will help you swap it out for not too much cash...
Hope you fix it!

Latitude d505 won't display image through projector. Being used with Sanyo plc XU41 and Promethean board. Board is interactive but no help if there is no image to see! Other Dell laptops work with this...


Dell laptops normally have a 3-way toggle for the display destination: 1=screen 2= external display and 3=Both. To toggle from one mode to the next press hold the 'FN' key (lower left corner of the Key board), and the briefly press the 'F8' key. Wait a few seconds for the hardware to catch up and you should see a display through the projector. If not, repeat the 'Fn' + 'F8' combo again.

You could also try running diagnostics to verify that teh video card is working properly. To do that, sthar with the laptop off. Hold the 'Fn' key down while you press the power button. Release both as the machine begins to boot up. It should start in diagnostics mode. Run the quick test and watch for the color bars. If you see then, the video card so=huold be OK.

Good luck, And please let me know how it turns out for you.

I cant boot up my computer(memory address line failure)


This is clearly a problem with the memory. You can try two things:

1) Remove and reseat the memory sticks (with the unit unplugged)
2) Swap the boards around. Windows is not very tolerant of errors in the lower portion of memory. Swapping around the boards will change the relationship of physical memory addresses to virtual addresses. At the very least, the memory swap may help to determine which memory stick is defective.

Please keep us posted.
