Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

Even though it seems to be working just fine, I think my keyboard is sending a signal to the computer without me knowing (or actually typing anything)--I've been having some computer troubles lately, and when I come upon "hit any key to continue" on diagnostic/test screens I flash right through them, and when I'm not supposed to use the keyboard (only the mouse) to log on to certain websites, I keep getting error messages. Thoughts, anyone? Thanks for any advice anybody can give!

The easiest way to find out if it is your keyboard is to temporarily trade keyboards with someone. You will know quickly. It is not necessary to use a Dell keyboard.

Still have fan problem


The way the system works is the thermal switch, or temp sender sends a signal to the computer, the computer sends a signal to the fan relay and the relay then sends power to the fan motor. If you have verified that all of the components in the system work properly then that leaves you a connection problem. Time to make some jumper wires and use a multi meter to ohm out wires and connections and find the problem. Make sure to check your grounds too, if you are putting power to the fan motors and there is no ground there is not completion of a circuit and they will not run.

My exprssion mini split a/c has switched off and only goes on if you use the override switch inside the unit and will not operate with the remote any longer - it went off after my nephew put it on and kept...


The remotes for the mini-splits send very complex digital codes each time you press a button. If the batteries are not working at nominal voltage the remote will not send the signal correctly even though the screen seems to work fine. Try switching out the batteries.

My ABS light is shining on dashboard, what can this mean? My break fluid level is good. Also my breaks are working fine.


There are a few sensors and components which feed into a computer.Even though your brakes seem fine,there is something wrong.ABS takes sensor inputs from the wheel speed,sends them to a computer,compares them to how hard you want to brake,and applies/releases the brakes as fast as possible to prevent skidding.You normally cannot feel it.So even though you can stop,something is giving a bad signal somewhere.The computer is usually not the problem though.The sensors and brakes are under the more extreme usage conditions.Greg

"No signal" even though connected to computer


You probably have to tell the laptop to send a video signal to an external display--(i.e. <altF4 or <altF8) The proper function key will have a TV screen symbol on it. Default mode is "laptop only" By pressing and holding the alt, then pressing the appropriate function key, the laptop will switch to the next mode, laptop/external display. The last mode is external display only. By pressing the sequence again, you'll return to "laptop only" mode.

My computer is not working shows keyboard erro and stop


Hi...

When you monitor saying which is no signal this is a monitor port problem. Check your monitor connector if it is properly connceted to the motherboard. That is the only way of monitor saying no signal.

Keyboard not responding


Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again
