I don't know where is they break key in my computer dell inspiron,i'm asking to you


A Dell Inspiron what? There are at least 30 different models of Dell Inspiron. Is your computer a desktop or a laptop?

I fit's a desktop you SHOULD have a key on the keyboard that is labeled pause/break.

If laptop then the key combination for pause/break is Ctrl+Fn+F11

Hi,

You can press and hold CTRL and ALT while pressing the down arrow key to rotate the display, if that doesn't work right click on an empty space on the Desktop and select Screen Resolution from there change the Orientation from Landscape (flipped) to Landscape.

When i hold down the shift key on my dell inspiron 6400 laptop i can not get it to capitalize or to type the upper level punctuation marks


Chances are your keyboard has a problem with it. I suggest that you try restarting your computer. Strange but it does the trick sometimes. If no go, go to safe mode.

SAFE MODE

Restart your computer. While it's restarting, tap F8 until you can see the option to go to safe mode. Use your keyboard arrow to highlight safe mode.

Try using the shift key in safe mode. If it works, then you need to do a system restore so that you can revert your computer's functionality to a date when it was still working well.

Hardwares like your keyboard is controlled by drivers. To avoid from getting driver problems in the future after fixing your current issue, then I suggest that you install Radarsync to your computer. It will automate your computer's updating and fixing (driver) mechanism.

I hope this helps.

If you have any questions, please reply to this post.

I have a Dell INSPIRON 5100 I can't find out how to adjust the brightness on my sceen I' ve looked everywhere tring to fix this Prob. Can U help Thanks


If you look at the function buttons for example f1- f12.
there should be symbols in a light color. at the same time there will b a function key on your keyboard usually has the letters (fn) you hold this button down while pressing those other function buttons they all do something different so look for one that looks like a pics of the sun.
