Dell Computer-MS Keyboard--HELP

I just had a Dell 5150 serviced by a contracted technician because the memory was defective. I bought this computer second hand and the keyboard is a microsoft keyboard not a dell keyboard. After the technician fixed the memory problem and replaced it I now can't use the keyboard. When I boot up the computer I have 3 little green lights that are flashing on the keyboard but the keyboard will not work.

Before this computer completely died on me I was having the same keyboard issues on and off. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Sincerely

Tammy

YOU MAY HAVE TWO ISSUES:

KEYBOARD NOT CONNECTED
CMOS BATTERY IS STARTING TO FAIL

HOW MANY TIME DID THE LIGHTS FLASH.

DID YOU CHECK TO SEE IF THE KEYBOARD WAS EVEN CONNECTED, IT GOING TO BE A RIBBON WITH LITTLE WIRES GOING THROUGH THE RIBBON, THE RIBBON ONLY GOES IN ONE DIRRECTION,

THE OTHER PROBLEM IS IF THE CMOS BATTERY IS GETTING LOW THEN IT WILL NOT KEEP THE BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT THE COMPUTER SETTING CORRECT, THIS MEANS YOU COULD LOOSE THE MONITOR, KB, HD, TIME, OPERATIONAL SYSTEM, AND BOOT SEQUENCE. HARD DRIVE SETTINGS.

IF YOU JUST PICKED UP THE COMPUTER FROM THE SHOP
YOU SHOULD OF CALLED THEM AND EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM AND WHAT SHOULD YOU DO NOW.

P.S.

EVERY TIME YOU EVERY HAVE ANYONE ELSE WORK ON ANY OF YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT AND DEVICES, HAVE THEM EXPLAIN WHAT THEY DID IN SOMETHING YOU CAN UNDERSTAND SO YOU DONT MAKE THE SAME MISSTAKE AGAIN.

Hi ktaydus.

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?


You did not specify the model of your dell computer.

You can check the manual online so that you know the step by step instruction on how to replace the keyboard of your dell computer.

You can go to this link: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/manuals?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=anavml

Just select the model of your dell computer or enter the service tag which you can find on the bottom of your laptop.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Welcome to FixYa.

As a standard troubleshooting for wireless devices please do the following:
  • Restart your computer.
  • Open note pad and test your keyboard.
  • See if the keyboard functions properly.
  • Open MS word and test your keyboard.
  • See if it functions properly.


Tell me the results in Notepad and MS Word so that I can determine if it's the macro in MS Word that turns the INSERT and NUMPAD key off.

Keyboard on my dell studio 1737 doesn't work, mousepad works, keyboard does not


It could be one of two things, the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard is disconnected.

Or it's a defective keyboard.

Keyboards for laptops are relatively inexpensive, anywhere between 20-40 dollars on ebay.
Buying a new keyboard and having a computer technician install it, which takes ten minutes, should be a good investment, rather than getting a new computer or sending it back to dell.

Hope this helped.

1 USB Port Failure


Hi Guys

Unfortunately after looking at the computer installation details i was at fault, although i have had
the computer for well over 2 years and this is the first time it has happened.
My Dell Dimension 5150 has 7 USB ports 5 at the back and 2 in the front and it appears that i have
connected the keyboard and mouse to the wrong ports.
There are two ports at the bottom allocated for the keyboard and mouse and for some reason i had
them in the top three ports hence my problem but still not sure why it happened.
Anyway my Dell Dimension 5150 is now running OK and no further help is needed.

Many Thanks.
