Question about Dell Latitude D820 Notebook

1 Answer

I think my computer officially died. How do I know if this is true?The caps lock light and adjacent light to its right (on the upper left part of the computer) are continuously flashing. My computer will not turn on. The screen froze when I opened an internet box, and then made many bizarre noises that sounded like fuzzy radio waves. I shut the screen, opened it back up to find a frozen mouse and frozen screen not loading onto the internet page. I have had this Dell for three years. What should I do?!

What is the third light for on the upper right hand side of the keyboard? How do you turn it on and off? What is it used for? I know the first one is the Number Lock, the second is for Caps Lock.


Third light is usually the "scroll lock" indicator.
-Activation Button should be on top row, near far right side, on standard keyboard.
Note: Laptop keyboards vary greatly from the standard layout with 'scroll lock' usually activating using an 'alt' or 'brand' (ex. "Apple") key.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

Lid got slammed once and opened it and saw some lines and then nothing. Everything else seems to work I think but I couldn't get it to work with an external flat screen monitor. I have taken it all apart...


> couldn't get it to work with an external ... monitor

With the computer turned-off, connect the monitor to the SVGA port.
Turn the computer on -- the usual "start-up" messages should flash on the LCD screen.

Or, take the laptop into a darkened room, to see if the usual Windows "desktop" icons & wallpaper are dimly visible.

Or, take the laptop & the power-supply to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Don't know how to unlock caps lock


There shoudl be a Caps Lock button on your keyboard....look on the left side of your keyboard between the Tab and Shift buttons.

Also, one way to see if your Caps Lock is on is to look on your keyboard, typically in the upper right hand corner and look for a light eminating from your keyboard and it should look like the letter A inside of an image of a palock, if the light is on then Caps Lock is on, just hit the Caps Lock key to turn off.

SHIFT LOCKED ON


There should be a function key that is a light blue on the lower left. Hold that down and hit the NUM lock key at the upper right.

What happened is that you turned the numlock on just like on a regular keyboard but on a laptop, its a secondary function key where the letters double as numbers when the function numlock is turned on.

give it a try and let me know.
Good luck

Status light on upper right illuminated - how to turn it off?


Hi,

Initially, have you checked/pressed on the "Scroll Lock" key (between Print Screen & Pause). To my knowledge, on most keyboards, the three common indicator lights are: Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My typing goes uppercase without hitting the caps lock


I have the HP Pavilion and cap locks does the same thing.
THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. Hit both the right and left shift lock simultaneously about 5 to 10 times. It immediately disengages the cap locks. It is a little bit of a hassle, but I'm just used to it. It may happen 3 times per week, but I LOVE the machine, so I just fix it this way!
