Your alt or ctrl key is stuck. So the keyboard is running different shortcuts.

HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN NUMBERS AND LETTERS


I'm guessing this is on a laptop or mini keyboard? You have managed to turn them number lock on. To be able to use the letters again on the keyboard the number lock feature needs to be turned off. This varies depending on the model of keyboard/laptop. One thing that may help is using the fn (lower left on keyboard) key on laptops (funtion key) and while pressing this tap the Num Lock key, usually at the top right of the keyboard.
difficult to be specific without knowing the exact make/model.

Where is num lock key on Dell 5030


If there is no NumLock key then pressing the Fn (Function) buttonshould enable the number pad on the keys that have the Blue numbers onthem. On most laptops (dont know your model) there is a numlock key asthis allows the user to type numbers with two hands and not keep oneholding the Fn button. You would normally press the Fn button and theNumLock option to switch it on and every time you pressed the keys withthe numbers on it would use the number not the letter, pressing the Fnkey with NumLock on would normally allow the letter to be used withouthaveing to disable the NumLock.
This assumes of course that the normal letters are stamped with thenumbers on, if not it is most unusual, I don't think I hav eseen alaptop keyboard without numbers or the NumLock / Fn options. There areUSB number pads available that you can buy, these simply plug in to anavailable USB port and it is like an extension of your keyboard.

Please, please, please, we need to know how we aredoing! Please rate our help to you and leave us a comment so we could go onhelping people like you that need our assistance and expertise! Thank you and, Thankyou for using FIXYA! Bestregards,

Does latitude d510 have bluetooth? If so how do I enable it?


I think ,it has , you can enable it by doing following steps

  • Press and hold the "Fn" button on your Dell D150 keyboard. This button is located on the last row of keys between the "Windows" button and the "Ctrl" button.

  • Press and hold the "F2" button at the top of your keyboard. A small Bluetooth indicator will appear in your system tray showing you that Bluetooth features have been enabled.

  • Double-click on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray. The status should be set to "On" or "Enabled".

    Keys are not matching up . When i type certain letters, it displays numbers. Example. press k, and displays 2. Must hold funtion key to get correct letter.


    Your number lock is on. Look for a small picture that looks like a calculator on your keyboard keys (possibly on one of the F keys at the top). Press the Fn key plus the key with the calculator pic to turn number lock off.

    Keyboard letters wont work but only top row Of numbers


    On a notebook computer, there is a FN key that when pressed with the appropriate special function key will disable the normal keyboard and enable the alternate letters (printed in a different color) on your keyboard.
    Unfortunately, I can't remember which special function key that is--but the icon on it should give you a clue.

    I have a Dell Latitude E6500 and I think it has numerous shortcut keys that I did not define. Thus it zooms in on documents when I don't want it to, creates new documents when I do not want it to, will...


    Most programmes utilise keyboard shortcuts.
    It says which key combinations will perform which command next to the options on the drop down menus when you click on file, edit, view, etc.
    These shortcuts usually a letter key in combination with ctrl key, alt key , sometimes ctrl+shift.
    Possibly you are pressing the ctrl key at same time when you press the shift key?
