Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

1 Answer

My dell keyboard keys do not work according to what is printed on the key. The problem occurred after i formatted it some time back. The question mark key is located at the top right of the keyboard near the backspace. Now the question mark key workd when i press the key located with the right shift key (as it is present in most normal keyboards) Seems this keyboard needs some special driver to be installed. I have win XP. Please help me out

    The problem is not that simple but i would be really happy if someone helps me solve my problem.


    I will explain it again, more extensively this time.


    The keyboard with C 610 has around 83 keys ( i have counted them). Windows detects it as 101/102 key standard ps2 keboard ( i dont know what the hell is this ps2? isnt it the one with which you attach any external keyboard?


    What i think is that there should be a driver with this keyboard that makes it recognize as 83 key.


    Plus there is another problem. the keys printed on my keyboard is NOT LIKE NORMAL / USUAL KEYBOARDS. its different from other C610s too. e.g. the question mark key is located with the zero (0) key on the top right and not near the right shift button as it appears on most keyboards.


    there are other such examples too.. i can give u if u want to know more...


    thanks for the help anyways

    Hi there.
    It sounds like the keyboard settings are set to a different country, if you go to the control panel and select keyboard, you should be able to set the keyboard layout to US or UK depending on which country you live in.
    post back if you cannot find the settings

    Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Shapsog,
You may need to turn off the Filter Keys option. Follow the steps below to turn them off.
Go to

2. Ease Of Access Center
3. Make the keyboard easier to use
4. Uncheck the "Turn on Filter Keys" option
You also may need to Check to be sure you don't have Sticky Keys enabled.
BY PRESSING THE SHIFT KEY FIVE TIMES
Without pressing other keys, press the SHIFT key five times to enable Sticky Keys. A window will be displayed asking you if you wish to turn on Sticky Keys Clicking Yes will enable Sticky Keys or click No.
If none of these steps work you may need to replace the keyboard or plug in an external USB keyboard.

Need to know difference between dell and apple keyboard


The Apple key sends the same key code as the Windows key on the Dell keyboard. The option key on the Apple keyboard is the same as the Alt key on the Dell keyboard. The Dell keyboard may require a PS/2 interface (older models) instead of USB, and may have Print Screen, Scroll Lock and Pause/Break keys. These three additional keys are very rarely used.
Otherwise, the differences are cosmetic.

I am trying to format my virus rdden computer, however when I get to the point of accepting the agreement with windows (after booting from the cd) it won't allow me to accept. what do I do?


Generally this occurs when F12 is pressed multiple times causing the keyboard to stop responding because the keyboard buffer is full.

At boot, when the Dell Splash Screen Appears press the F12 key once when the progress bar is 70% across the screen (System should beep ONCE) then select the optical drive and press spacebar when prompted. The keyboard should work fine after that.

I cannot do a Print Screen with my Dell Latitude d610. I have tried all combinations of Ctrl+Prnt scrn and Fn+Prnt scrn. Any idea's?


Based on your keyboard layout, you don't need a key combination to capture your screen. Just press the "Print Scrn" button and your screen image will be copied to your clipboard. Now if you have pressed the "Print Scrn" key, go to MS Paint or any other image processing programs and "paste" it there.

Notice that your "Print Scrn" key is printed on top of the keyboard key and in white color. That means that it is the default key when pressed so there is no need to combine with Fn or shift. But if it is printed in blue or orange (your Fn key should be in blue or orange also) that is the time you need a key combination.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Dell SK-8115 USB keyboard on non Dell PC


This model keyboard has an internal USB hub and Windows only sees the hub when booting. The solution is to get a generic USB keyboard and boot into Windows. Once Windows has loaded the HID drivers for the sk-8115 keyboard then this Dell keyboard will work from then on.
