If it is under warranty, have dell replace the keyboard. If it is NOT under warranty, then you can likely replace the keyboard yourself or get it done in a shop. Chat with dell on their site and see what they can do to help you. Otherwise, you could just install an external USB keyboard until you get it fixed.

Fit


hi there!
The program doesn't fit on computer screen because the resolution of computer screen is too low. could you right click on the desktop and change resolution of screen to higher. I guest your current is 800x600. Change it to higher will fix your problem.
( another way to change to enter button is using Tab key on the keyboard. Every time you hit Tab key, it will move to next button on the program.Try Tab and hit Enter on the keyboard.)
Hope this will help.

Mouse buttons spontaneously click themselves


I'm afraid that keyboards and mice don't like tea much at all. You can pick up keyboards and mice cheap enough and to be honest they are just not worth repairing. Even a tin of Servisol Video 40, which you can spray on the contacts to clean them will cost you as much as a mouse would!

Computer doesn't recognize ez eyes keyboard


unplug the keyboard, go to the manufacturers website and download and install the drivers, plug the keyboard back in.

If that doesn't work

check your device manager and see what keyboards are in the keyboard section. delete anything but the hid keyboard device and the standard ps2/2 keyboard from the keyboard section. repeat the first set of instructions

if that doesn't work either

take the keyboard back it is most likely faulty

Hey my mac won't eject a disc. i have tried a lot of stuff and nothing happened. when i restart it the disk spins and doesn't sound stuck and when i used disk utility it said there was an error...


Resolution Tip: Make sure the CD or DVD disc is not in use. Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
  1. Press the Media Eject key at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
  2. If that doesn't work, drag the disc's icon to the Trash.
  3. If that doesn't work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse button or trackpad button while the computer is starting up, until the disc is ejected.
    To restart, choose Restart from the Apple menu.

Laptop beeps4 times but doesn't come on the monitor or start-up. ights on front of laptop and start button come on but nothing else happens.


In most cases this means bad memory stick. If you are able to, flip over the laptop, find the panel that has the memory under it, unscrew the screw(s) to get the panel off, and pull out the top stick of memory. Flip the laptop back over and power it on. If it works fine again, then that stick was the problem, and you can go buy a replacement and install it back into that slot. If that doesn't fix the issue, turn it off, flip it over, pull the other stick of memory out and put the first stick into that slot. Flip it back upright and turn on again. If that fixes the issue, then the second stick of memory is bad and you can just replace it as well. If neither of those fix the issue please reply on here and we can do further diagnostics.

My Logitech keyboard worked perfectly last week, but when I came back from my friend (I had my keyboard there, for the third time) it didn't work perfectly after 1 day, it started typing randomly but when...


When my logtch does that is usally is a stuck key. It can also be a low battery or the antenna is too close or too far away.

Most of the time its a stuck key. turn it upside down and knock on it like you are knocking on a door. that usually will jar the keey loose. you may be able to find the stuck key by pushing on them and see which one doesn;t pop back or feel right. Don;t try to pry it loose do the knock.

If the battery has just enough power left you can get some wired things happening but usually it just stops working.

Move the antenna so that it is about a foot away and is clear line of sigt from the keyboard to the antenna. You may want to reset or reconnect using the button on the antenna and the bottom of the keyboard.

9 out of 10 times its a stuck key.

Keyboard/touchpad problem.


The keyboard and touch-pad are connected to an internal USB interface, If no USB interfaces are working at all this suggests that the USB host controller (a physical computer chip) has failed.
You can try a chip-set reset; disconnect both power and battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (timed), this will reset all chip settings to default and discharge any static buildup but this is in no way guaranteed to fix the problem. If the laptop is still under warranty arrange for repair.
In the mean time most of the Aspire 5100 series have a PC card slot on the side so you could use a USB or PS2 host card to connect a keyboard and mouse.
