Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Keyboard problems MY keyboard has a few lights on at the top on certain buttons which have to do with music, but the actual keys that you would use to types are incapable of use. I can tell there is a connection between the keyboard and computer through this, but perhaps the keys are locked? I've tried to troubleshoot the problem, but the hardware doesn't show up as listed... it's very confusing. I've also tried reconnecting and checking the ports and restarting the computer. ----- The model is a Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.

Hi

I like to inform you that multimedia keyboards has no lock or special connection other that USB or PS/2 connection. But special multimedia keys can be assigned by its software. Make sure if you have the CD came with the keyboard if you dont have it still chance exist that you can go to manufacturer's website and obtain the software utility

Good Luck

What do all the key functions do ?


Because you have a multimedia keyboard, there are additional functions for those special function keys. The icons on the keys will tell you if they do something special (like play sounds, increase the volume, etc) This kind of keyboard is designed for those who play DVDs and CDs and don't want to have to open a menu on the screen to quickly play music, etc.

Casio keyboard lit up, no sound, no responses


Unplug for several minutes and try again.

If that doesn't work, look up the "factory reset" procedure for your particular model via google and follow that procedure. It usually involves holding certain buttons down before and during power up.

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys...


some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

There are so many buttons on the Microsoft Laser Desktop 4000 keyboard and I would like to loearn how to use all of them without wasting a lot of time. Why aren't there any instructions and how do I learn...


On the left side of the keyboard you'll find a few function keys. From bottom to top we have the Web/Home, which simply opens up your primary web browser as you'd expect. Gadgets is a Vista exclusive, but I'm confused as to it's actual usefulness. If the windows Sidebar is closed, pushing this button will open it. Mail and Call both open up Windows specific applications, Windows Mail and Windows Messenger. Lastly we have the My Documents button which is self explanatory. The zoom feature is one of the best on this keyboard in my opinion. It explains itself really, but you have the ability to slide it up or down to zoom in and out on a webpage or photo. Many keyboards instead just have buttons for accomplishing this, but a slider makes it feel more natural.

Up top we have the usual slew of media shortcuts including video or music playback buttons. The "My Favorites" keys are shortcuts to anything you want, whether it be a certain file, application or game. The little Star button below these brings up the dialog to set up these keys, which I will touch on shortly.

There are three buttons above the numpad, and though difficult to read in a photograph, they are Calculator, Log Off and Sleep. I am a personal fan of the Calculator shortcut on media keyboards as I reference it often.

I have a Casio LK43 and a key broke off. Once I have the new park how do I disasemble/reassemble to replace key.


On many of these instruments, several keys are on one assembly. They are attached by screws near the top of the keys. You may have to disassemble the case and remove the strip that is just above the tops of the keys in order to see these screws. That strip may be attached by quite a few screws itself.

On these lighted keyboards, sometimes you have to hold the key at certain angles in order to get it into place, but be gentle. If necessary, loosen another key to see how it fits. Don't force anything or you may break an LED or some plastic piece associated with the keyboard. However, if you are gentle and patient, this should not be a difficult job.

Yamaha 9000pro froze and after restarting doesnt do anything anymore the only thing that happens when i swiths it on is that the display lights up , but it wont start up completely. could it be a harddrive...


First thing is to Isolate the keyboard and then take out the Hard Drive and restart the keyboard. If that doesn't work then that's the first problem eliminated. You can do a Factory Reset on the keyboard. I'm not too sure on this keyboard but mostly it's Turn on the keyboard and simultaniously hold a certain button(s) or Key(s) [normally at the top end]. This info will be in the Manual.You could look at the troubleshooting page in the Manual also. Other than that at this time I can't help any further.......Good luck!

My Laptop Pavilion dv4000 keyboard keys locked


Have you removed all power (AC adaptor and battery) for several minutes. Sometimes it may also help to hold the power button in for 10 seconds while all power is disconnected. Then plug back in and start computer.

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

Keyboard problem


Sounds like your keyboard is going bad or already has. Try to plug in an external keyboard to see if the same thing occurs. If the Keyboard works then you no for certain it is your Keyboard. Let me know!
