Re: letters typing as another

Probably a mechanical problem with your keyboard. Try connecting an external keyboard to see if the problem is corrected. If that works, you will probably need to get hold of a different keyboard for your laptop.

Make sure that you are not putting in the letter O instead of zero's or vice versa. This is a common mistake. If not that double check you have typed the correct registration number.

When I want to type punctuations on my Dell Inspiron e.g. ALT 137 it brings up the "save as" window - how weird. I tried playing with the regional settings but to no avail

Check the NUM LOCK of your latop because ALT 137 will bring puctuation if NUM lock is turned off..If turned on it will give you save as........(TRY VICE VERSA)

I'm working on a Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop with Word 2003. When I type " I get @ appearing and vice versa - they have exchanged with each other. What have I done?

Did somebody remove the "key-caps" and switch them, as a "prank" ?
The order of letters on the keyboard is: EXCLAMATION, AT, OCTOTHORPE, DOLLAR, PERCENT.

Or, check the "keyboard input language". Windows allows for different keyboards, such as Norwegian and German, that have different keys in different places on the keyboard.
Switch to "US English".

I have a hp dv5000 multimedia notebook. Till yesterday, everything was working fine, but this morning before starting up the comp, I cleaned the keppad witha soft brush and then switched on the power...

Remove the power chord. Remove the battery. Remove all the external peripherals. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Put the battery back in. Turn on the laptop.
It should work fine now.

if not turn the laptop upside down then slap it lightly 3-4 times
this will then surely fix the problem and if not then take it to the service center.

If your keyboard features a special key "Fn" Do this: Press Alt + Fn or Fn + Caps lock. If it does not should have a special that helps you activate special fuctions noted on your keyboard. You have to find that key. Holding it down type the problematic keys. You will get it right.
