Question about Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop
Ok, there is something very wrong with my keyboard. I use XP and I have a Dell Dimension 1100 comp. I honestly don't know anything about computers. So here's what's going on. I use the interntional keyboard and I think it has messed up my computer. I have had to copy and paste every single 'a' in this message because every time I push the 'a' this (dfjkl
321|:AS) comes up. Everytime I push the tab button it shuts of my computer. The 'Q' (also cut and pasted this letter) when pushed does this (eruio+987pqw) and brings up outlook express. and the exclaimation mark is messed up also. I was told it was because I have used the international keybord. PLEaSE PLEaSE help me (I would use explntion mrks but I cn't)
BTW please take it easy on me with the lingo, I need it explained in laymon terms.....OMG you will never know how many words have an 'a' in them until this happens to your keyboard 'nd have to do the control + 'v' function to paste them
First, we must find out if either its your keyboard that's busted or it has something to do with windows. If you can get hold of another keyboard, shut off the computer, switch keyboard, then power up the computer then see what happens. If it still does the same thing, try to do a system restore, click start>All Programs>Accessories folder>System Tools> then click system restore. Click next on the first system restore page> then choose a BOLD date that you're sure that the keyboard is still working fine. Click next, then click next again. Just just let go, the computer will automatically restart. At the end of the system restoration process a pop up will appear when you get to the desktop screen. Just click next. Test your keyboard. If it still does not work. Back your data then reinstall windows. You can also do PC restore if your computer has the capability to do PC Restore by restaring computer, on the dell logo screen(this screen appeaRS A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING ON THE COMPUTER)hold down CTRL key on KBoard while tapping F11. just follow the instructions given by the Symantec program.

Tips for a great answer:
When powering on the F2 key will get me to Bios Setup, F8 key will get me to Safe Mode, and F12 key will let me change Boot Device. Everything is normal when up on XP operating system. If I reboot, None of the mentioned function keys work. Instead I get a message of a "Keyboard Failure", but system will come up OK. But, on the reboot, I want to use one of those function keys.
I have a DELL 2400 Dimension running Windows Home XP. I am using a Logitech EX-110 (Combo keyboard & mouse)
This seems very similar to another write up on this site.
Any ideas? Don't tell me to toggle the keyboard. I tried it with no positive results
