How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

How to use accents when writing in Spanish in a Dell Precision m4500 laptop?


On Windows XP
  1. Log On
  2. Click the Start button
  3. Click on Control Panel
  4. Click Regional and Language Options - a new window will pop up
  5. Click the Languages tab
  6. Click on the Details button
  7. Click the Add button - a new window will pop up
  8. Select United States-International (keyboard layout menu)
  9. Click OK
  10. Click Apply
  11. Read the instructions for "Using the U.S. - International Keyboard" below.
Note: You will now have a keyboard icon on the taskbar (usually on the right side). To switch between keyboard layouts click the keyboard icon on the task bar and choose which layout you want to use. Changing the keyboard layout will only affect the log on profile used. No other users will be affected.

Windows Vista
  1. Start-->Control Panel-->Clock, Language, Region-->Change Keyboards
  2. New Window: Click the Change Keyboards button
  3. New Window: Click the Add button
  4. Select United States-International keyboard
  5. Click OK
  6. From drop down menu (Default Input Language) select United States International
Using the U.S. - International Keyboard If you followed the above directions carefully, your keyboard will now react slightly differently than it did before. First of all, notice that if you strike the single apostrophe (') key, nothing happens. To type the single apostrophe now, you must strike the single apostrophe key and then strike the space bar. When you strike the spacebar, the apostrophe will appear.
The next thing to note is that the quotes (") key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key. You must first strike the quotes key and then strike the space bar in order to create the (") symbol. These two minor inconveniences are more than made up for by the ease with which you can now type the special characters.
To type the special characters, two keystrokes are required. To type the ?, you need only strike the apostrophe key and then the letter a. The other characters are just as easy:
  • ? = ' + a
  • ? = ' + e
  • ? = ' + i
  • ? = ' + o
  • ? = ' + u
  • ? = ~ + n
  • ? = " + u
To type the special punctuation characters, you need to hold down on the Alt key while you strike the appropriate punctuation mark. On some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.
  • ¡ = Alt (hold down) + !
  • ¿ = Alt (hold down) + ?
Using Cryptic Codes If, for some reason, you don't want to change your keyboard, you can always type in the troublesome cryptic codes. Using this arcane system, the following codes apply:
  • ? = Alt + 0225
  • ? = Alt + 0233
  • ? = Alt + 0237
  • ? = Alt + 0243
  • ? = Alt + 0250
  • ? = Alt + 0241
  • ? = Alt + 0252
  • ¡ = Alt + 0161
  • ¿ Alt + 0191
When using this utterly out-dated system, there are two important things to remember. First, when you type in the numbers, some keyboards require that you use the "numeric keypad" located to the side, rather than the numbers along the top. Second, on some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.

Sometimes when I type on the keyboard it skips keys that I am striking. I have to strike the key harder to make it register. This only happens sometimes, not all the time.


This is cause by foreign material between the key contacts. Sometimes exercising the key vigorously will fix it, mostimes the keyboard has to be removd and contacts cleaned or keyboard replaced.

Keyboard is too sensitive - getting multiple characters


I too have encountered this problem. It was the q key on a dell latitude d530. After reading a post on an osxforum describing a software issue i attempted to fix the problem by adjusting the sensitivity of the keyboard. This did nothing. Next i attempted to determine if there was a physical issue. I popped the key off and discovered nothing. I also popped out the white plastic 'scissors' that the key fixes too and still discovered nothing. I looked under the rubber... nothing. compared it to another key... nothing. All in all I could find nothing abnormal about this key other than the fact that it was super sensitive. so I began to experiment. I put a piece of paper under the rubber. This made the sensitivity just about perfect so I left the little bit of paper in place, reassembled, and have had no further problems. This is ghetto i know but it worked for me...

Some Keys are not working


There are two reasons you may need to clean a keyboard: the slow accumulation of gunk, and keyboard emergencies such as dumping a cup of coffee on your keys.

If you dump liquid on your keyboard, shut down your computer immediately, disconnect the keyboard, run it over to the sink, and turn it upside down to drain. If you spilled a sticky liquid, such as Coke on the keyboard, you can squirt water on the upside-down keyboard to rinse it, says Mike Nadelman of computer-repair.com. Don’t submerge the keyboard in water; let it dry upside down.

Compressed air is the keyboard cleaner’s best friend, and it’s the quickest and easiest way to get dust and hair out of a keyboard. I started by disconnecting the keyboard, carrying it over to a clean surface, and giving the keyboard a few good zaps with the cold gas. I kept hitting the keyboard with the compressed air pretty often throughout the cleaning process.

To cope with stained keys and the hairs trapped under the plastic, though, start popping keys off. Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently. Stick two plastic knives under opposite sides of a key and pry upward, exerting equal force on both sides. The key is guaranteed to fly off across the room, but that’s how you do the job without breaking the key or the switch. Once keys are off, they’re actually washable. Rub stains with a wet cotton swab dunked in soapy water, which does the trick for most messes. Save the alcohol for truly stubborn gunk, because it can damage the ink on the keys, and never, ever, ever use ammonia-based solvents such as Windex.

At first, avoid the big keys, such as the Spacebar, SHIFT, TAB, BACKSPACE, CAPS LOCK, and ENTER. Those keys may be loaded with springs or hinges that make them difficult to remove or replace.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick, Nadelman told me.

As you remove keys, you’ll need to remember where to put them. Some people make diagrams or put them on the table in the exact order they were in on the keyboard.

Keyboard problem


Cleaning your keyboard may require popping the keys off. Sometimes this may invalidate your warranty; check with the manufacturer to be certain this is something you want to do.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick. (However, this will require removing keys from the keyboard.)

Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently.
