Hi Tiffany,
Found this after googling .....
Here is how you enable the number lock feature:
1) While booting up press F2 repeatedly
2) After the Dell logo appears, you will be diverted to a Settings menu
3) Expand "POST behavior"
4) Select "Keypad (Embedded)"
5) Press the "By Num Lock" button
6)Press "Apply"
7)Press "Exit"

SOURCE: web cam on latitude e6500

I have same problem. I downloaded the latest webcam driver, installed it. Everything is fine, in the device manager the device are present. But when i try to load the webcam application from dell the device is not present or not installed appear.
Notice: if I try the YM webcam, the device work properly - that's mean the device driver is OK.
So the E6500 is a beautiful great notebook, with poor software.

Hello Dear,

It seems either the Drivers are not installed or there is some hardward issues(Cable disconnect or Dust).
For drivers you can check (Start > COntrol Panel > System > Properties > Device manager) There should not be any yellow , Red mark. If it is then you need to install the driver first.
If that is OK then you need to make sure that the cable connection inside the Keyboard panel are OK.
As a temporary basis you can just put some Palm Stroke on the Back of Touchpad.. That can resolve your issues.

You can restart also once.

With regards

I would like a manual for the latitude D610 keyboard to know how to use the symbol that are highlighted in bleu


In the lower left hand corner of your Dell Keyboard -- you will see a Blue Key labeled -- "Fn". This key allows you the use of ALL of the other blue labeled keys on your keyboard. You must press the FN key and the other "blue" key at the same time for them to work.

The keys on the right side of the keyboard with the blue numbers on them are controlled by the Numlock key and Fn key. The light at the top of the keyboard near the power button, with the number "9" inside a picture of a lock, will be lit if the Numlock is enabled.
You may need to press the Fn key to type numbers even if the Numlock is turned on. There is a setting in the BIOS called Enable Keypad and if you set it to By Numlock you will not have to hold down this key to type a number.

If you are still having trouble with these keys, please see the general keyboard troubleshooting guide

You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.

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?
