First boot to the Utility partition and run diagnostics on the keyboard (Fn Power button) see if they keys work correctly in the Dell Diagnostics keyboard test. If they do not, then either the keyboard or the motherboard is bad and I'd replace the keyboard first.
If the keyboard functions normally in the DIAGs, then the issue is most likely the regional and language settings in CONTROL Panel

Hi, I bought an Inspiron E1405 Media Center Edition in '06 and it never really worked properly. I was never able to use the "media direct" button or any of the other feats. I thought came with? On top of...


Since XP was reinstalled and the HDD was not prepped with the Media Direct CD before XP install Media direct will not work. You can purchase a Dell Media Center CD on ebay for about $20
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=Dell+XP+Media+Center+Edition&_sacat=See-All-Categories
I also found a Media Direct CD for a Newer Model, so I'm not sure it would work on yours. Media Direct requires that the HDD be formatted with Media Direct and then the XP installation, Driveras and applications, then install of Media Direct SW. Once done in that manner, you should be able to boot to Media Direct to play a DVD (To be honest, I never found the Media Direct function that useful)

Inspiron 6000 has trouble picking up wireless signal


Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.
