SOURCE: fn keys

It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1545 space bar, ''n'' and ''b'' keys suddnly don't work

There isn't any "Known Issues" that I am aware of with that model. Try re-seating the keyboard cable, see if there is any difference:

If no difference, contact Dell if under warranty. If not new keyboards are about $20 on EBay

Delete key stopped working


One moment you are typing on your computer keyboard as usual, when suddenly a key sticks or does not produce a character on the screen.
Perhaps you have a group of keys that suddenly stop working.
Laptop and desktop keyboards alike can stop functioning due to a number of causes, most of which can be resolved by troubleshooting.
Knowing how to fix some keyboard keys that do not work can save you time, and save you the cost of buying a new keyboard.

Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer.
Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard.
Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.

Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector.
The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard.
Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.


Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.

Clean Under Desktop Keys

Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working.
Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key.
Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.


Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key.
Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.


Position and press down on the key to snap it into place.
Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.

Clean Under Laptop Keys

Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently.
You will hear a snap as the key detaches.


Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist.


Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar.


Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol.
You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris.


Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position.
If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key.
Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key.
You should hear the key snap into place.
Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place.

How do i get my laptop screen thr right way up i pressed somthing and its gone upside down


You probably flipped the screen orientation (rotated it).

For some versions of Windows (XP and Vista), try pressing Control (Crtl)+Alt+Up arrow (press the three keys together). You can also try the other arrow keys with the Crtl+Alt keys. The Crtl and alt keys are both usually in the row with the space bar. On a full-size keyboard, there are two Ctrl keys on the ends of the row and the alt keys are closest to the space bar.

Otherwise, right click on the Desktop (where there are no programs or icons) and choose Graphics Options > Rotation. Another place to check is right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution > Orientation. This is a shortcut to accessing the display properties in the Control Panel. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display > Screen Resolution. For a widescreen monitor, choose Landscape.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(The ctrl+alt+arrow key doesn't work on my Win7 desktop but does work on the laptop. The Orientation change from the control panel works on both.)

How do I "wake" up my computer from sleep or hibernation?


There are different ways that work, try and see what works for yours. Sometimes all you have to do is hit the space bar, press the enter key, hit any key, close the lid and open the lid and some require you to Press the Power Button. Don't worry pressing the power button will not reboot the computer unless you continuously hold it down. Just pressing and releasing it will cause the computer to wake up and resume.

The space bar has come off how do i fix it


Often with keyboard keys, they have several clips that hold the keyin place. Try gently prying the key off again, and see if there is any placewhere the plastic might have broken, or if there were other clips thatweren't quite in place. If the key is broken, though, you can either deal with it as it is, orprobably order a new key.

Margins


Most electronic typewriters work the same way to change margin settings. You use the space bar to move to the desired location then press the right margin key. You should hear a beep. If you need to set it farther to the right of the current position, then use the space bar to move the carrier to the current position, once it stops moving then press margin release then space to the new position then press right margin key.
