Question about Dell Latitude D830 Laptop Computer PC Notebook

1 Answer

I can not get letters, especially vowels, to always type out

I can not get letters, especially vowels to always type out when I am trying to on my Dell D830 Latitude. I purged my machine and moved from Vista to Window 7 but that did not help. I thought it might be an Outlook issue but it occurs even when Outlook is not running. CPU usage is less than 5% typically and I have plenty of memory available. The biggest problems are with i, o, u, e, p and w. The rest of the letters are typically fine and type out normally. The issue is sporadic. Sometimes I have no problems typing for 20 seconds and then I can't type out the letters again after that. And then 20 seconds later the letters come out again. It is very bizarre. Any advice is appreciated.

Nokia N97- AMAZING FACTS!!!


d019b14.gif DID U KNOW???
…that by pressing any key on the top row of the keyboard (with the exception of Backspace) from the homescreen will bring up the Dialer?
…that by pressing the Shift key twice, this will allow you to type in CAPS LOCK but you can’t do this at the beginning of a sentence?
…that by pressing the Function key twice, this will allow you to type in SYM LOCK.
…that by holding the Sym key and pressing any vowel key or the ‘C’ or ‘N’ key, you will get accents above or below the letter? Pressing the letter key multiple times while holding the Sym key will cycle through the different accents (only vowels have multiple accents however).
…that the scroll key in the middle of the D-Pad functions like an OK/Options button?

Is wise a consonant


no it is no a consonant is a speech sound that is not a vowel
it also refers to letters of the alphabet that represents those sounds
Z, B, T, G, and H are all consonants
the A, E I,O U of the alphabet are vowels and the rest are consonants
go google and type in www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/consonant to get the idea

How to play scrabble dash?


Each player has a hand of 7 letter cards - initially 5 consonants and 2 vowels, but as the game progresses players can refill their hands freely from the separate vowel and consonant decks to vary the mix.
On each turn, the top Dash card is turned face up, revealing the goal for that turn. Players then race to play a word from their hands to fulfil the Dash card, or skip the turn to discard cards and draw new ones.
The Dash cards include criteria such as number of letters (ranging from 2 to 4), specific parts of speech (verb/proper noun), or specifying that the word has to start, end with, or contain a particular letter, drawn at random from either the vowel or consonant deck (players do not need to play their own copy of this letter from their hand).
The first player to lay down a valid word claims the Dash card, and the first player to collect 5 Dash cards wins the game.

Want to make german Umlaut symbols on keyboard


Every so often you may find you need to type a character on your computer that is either foreign or just not available on a standard keyboard.
The German umlaut is once such symbol.
Used in the German language to indicate a change in sound, the umlaut can sometimes be found in names and words we use in the United States as well.
The literary Bronte sisters, for example, use an umlaut over the E in their last name.
Umlaut's can be found over the vowels A, E, I, O, U and Y in both lowercase and uppercase forms

Hold down the alt key on your PC.
The next step depends on the vowel and case you want for your umlaut.
If you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, type the numbers 0228 on the keypad while holding down the alt key.
If you want an uppercase A with an umlaut, hold down the alt key and type 0196.
Hold down the alt key and type 0235 for a lowercase E with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0203 for an uppercase E with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0239 for a lowercase I with an umlaut. Hold down alt and type 0207 for an uppercase I with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0246 for a lowercase O with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0214 for an uppercase O with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0252 for a lowercase U with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0220 for an uppercase U with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0255 for a lowercase Y with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0159 for an uppercase Y with an umlaut.

Typing an Umlaut on a Mac


Hold down the option key on a Mac computer and press the letter u.
Then release both keys and type the letter for which you want the umlaut.
For example, if you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, you would hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter a.
If you want an uppercase A, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter A.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter e for an umlaut over a lowercase E.
If you want an uppercase E, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter E.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter i for an umlaut over a lowercase I.
If you want an uppercase I, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter I.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter o for an umlaut over a lowercase O.
If you want an uppercase O, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter O.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter u for an umlaut over a lowercase U.
If you want an uppercase U, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter U. And for an umlaut over an uppercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter Y.
For a lowercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter y.

Hi........


I wrote this as a vbscript. It's Visual Basic code in windows script. If you have XP, just copy the text into notepad and save it as "vowel.vbs". Now double click the newly created script file.

' vowel.vbs
'
' This VBScript is used to count the vowels and consonants in a string.
' Designed and Tested on Windows XP Pro SP2
'
' Version 1.0.0 - 02.20.2008
'
' This code may be freely distributed or modified.
' -----------------------------------------------------------------'

Option Explicit
Dim str
Dim vowels
Dim consonants
Dim i

vowels = 0
consonants = 0
str = "hello"

for i = 1 to len(str)
select case mid(str,i,1)
case "a"
vowels = vowels + 1
case "e"
vowels = vowels + 1
case "i"
vowels = vowels + 1
case "o"
vowels = vowels + 1
case "u"
vowels = vowels + 1
case else
consonants = consonants + 1
end select
next

msgbox "Vowels = " & vowels
msgbox "Consonants = " & consonants
'End of script.
