Missing B-key

Keyboards are really cheap right now. Honestly you'd be better off just buying a new one than trying to find a new key.

But to answer your question, I've never seen anywhere that sells individual keys. Maybe for a laptop, but not likely.

I just bought a new Inspiron laptop, as well as a Kensington USB docking station and a Dell WM311 wireless mouse. I can't get the mouse to work at all, and can't get the docking station to work properly...

Closing the lid of most laptops sends a signal to put the machine in hibernate or sleep mode. You can either leave the lid open or change the power savings settings. In Win 7, this is in the Control Panel but can also be reached from the advanced power savings settings from the Screen Saver. Click on the desktop (anywhere without an icon or running program) and select Personalize. Click on the Screen Saver and then Change Power Settings. Then Change Plan Settings (look for the line Advanced Plan Settings and the section marked Power Button and Lid).

I don't know enough to help you with the mouse problem. I'd check the batteries for the mouse first. Then ask Dell.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Beeps, keys not working, touchpad dont work

That is an indication that the "s" key is stuck on your keyboard. (permanently pressed down...or making contact).
Try to manually move it out of its current state, even though it doesn't seem to be stuck.
That will solve your problem.

''a'' and ''s'' keys will not function

Yes, under each letter and number there is a switch which sends a signal thru the keyboard controller to the CPU to decipher what letter/number was pressed. If the switch on the individual key goes out then it has to be repaired at manufacturers or PC repair.

Logitech mouse problem

I assume there is no second mouse on the system and you are using keyboard commands. Try the following in the device manager..
  1. Press Control-Esc or press the Windows key on your keyboard to bring up the Start menu.
  2. Using the up arrow key, highlight "Settings."
  3. Right arrow key to "Control Panel" and press the enter key.
  4. Use the arrow keys to highlight the System icon and press the Enter key.
  5. Use the right arrow key to select the Device Manager tab. (For Windows XP/2000 , use the right arrow key select the "Hardware" tab. Now use the tab key, select the "Device Manager" button and press the enter key.)
  6. Use the "Tab" key to select the "Computer Icon" at the top of the list of device icons.
  7. Use the down arrow key to highlight the Mouse icon.
  8. Use the right arrow key to open the mouse icon and verify there is a mouse icon that states, "HID-compliant mouse," and another entry that states the name of your USB device.
  9. If there are any errors reported on these icons by exclamation points or red X's, highlight these icons using the arrow keys and "Tab" to the "Remove" button and press the enter key. (For Windows XP/2000 , highlight these icons using the arrow keys and then press Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, highlight "Uninstall" and press the enter key.) When the "Confirm Device Removal" box appears, press the enter key.
  10. Once these icons have been removed, use the Tab key to get to the "Refresh" button and allow Windows to re-detect the pointing device. (If u r using Windows XP/2000 , press the Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, select "Scan for hardware changes" and press the Enter key.)
  11. Use the arrow keys to open the Mouse icon again and verify that there are no errors reported.
  12. Power down the computer system and restart Windows.

X-keys and Window XP SP2 x64 (64-bit)

Hi guys,
Unfortunately programming in Memory Resident Mode on Vista will not be supported, however if you program your unit on an XP or 2000 machine first you will be able to “run” your unit on Vista.

Because we are unable to program in Memory Resident Mode in a Vista environment we are currently moving to new firmware called MWII which supports a mode called Boot Mode. Boot Mode is very similar to Memory Resident Mode in that when operating in Boot Mode all of your X-keys device's macros are stored in the X-keys device's internal memory. Our MacroWorks II software is required to write programming to an X-keys device operating in Boot Mode or to read programming from that device.

I apologize for the inconvenience this will cause. If you have any questions for me please email me at:
