My dell laptop type wrong letter


Hi,
The standard keyboard language and widely used setting is "ENGLISH (US)"
Set the Keyboard layout to English US so that you have standard keys for symbols etc. like @ sign with SHIFT+2 etc.

The keyboard layout / Language of your PC may have been different (other than English US), so follow these steps to select the International keyboard layout:

- Go to Control Panel - Regional and Language settings
- On the Keyboards and Language tab, click Change keyboards.
- Click Add.
- Expand the language that you want. For example, English (United States).
- Expand Keyboard list, select the United States-International check box, and then click OK.
- In the Default input language list, click Language name - United States-International (where Language name is the language that you selected in step 4), and then click OK two times.
- In the Regional and Language Options dialog box, click OK.

The above steps would change the Keyboard Layout settings to 'English US' and you would be able to type @ sign with SHIFT+2

How do I install the extra memory under the keyboard for a ThinkPad R51 Series (Type 1830)? Which screws on the bottom do I take out? They are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. in groups. I am sure I don't...


You can find the Hardware and Maintenance Manual here, which gives all the details on removing the keyboard. But this model ships with the standard memory under the keyboard (in a single DIMM socket). Optional memory (again, just a single available socket) is installed from the bottom of the computer. You don't need to remove the keyboard, just loosen one screw that secures the cover over the memory socket. Page 71 in the manual shows the location.

It sounds like something was exposed to the keyboard, hopefully no sticky liquids as they can jell up a key for sure. Try compessed air first, if thatdoesn't work, and your comfortable with removing the keyboard form the sysytem. Clean it internally, if not, is it under warranty? Contact support. If not under warranty, there are several reputable techs available to analyze the issue.

My keyboard is really touchy, on several of the keys


Hi,

Before you replace the keyboard, try this:

Go to Start>Control Panel>Keyboard

There should be 2 adjustable settings: Repeat Delay, and Repeat Rate.

Move the slider to the left on both settings.

If you cannot get satisfactory results through this, it is probably time for a new keyboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My keyboard isn't typing most keys


I would reset the bios by using the jumper in the cabinet. Then make sure you have the correct type of keyboard selected and if all of that does not solve the issue, replace the keyboard.

As the issue is not clear whether the keyboard doesnot type the keys that are pressed, I recommend you to try typing in different applications like Microsoft Word, Notepad etc so that if the same thing happens with all the applications, the issue should be with the Keyboard.

However, before coming to a conclusion, I recommend you to try connecting a USB Keyboard to the Notebook and see if the same thing happens with it an all applications like Word, Notepad etc.

If the same thing happens with the USB Keyboard, the issue can be with the Keyboard Drivers which will be common for both the Notebook Keyboard and any external keyboard connected.

You can try to reinstall the Keyboard Drives in the Notebook from the Device Manger :

Open Device Manager by following the instructions....

Press the Start Menu and R key to get the Run command prompt.

In this, type devmgmt.msc and click on OK.

This will give us the Device Manager window.

In this, click on the + mark next to Keyboards which will display two entries.

Right click on Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard and select Uninstall and click on OK in any window that appears.

This will uninstall the Keyboard Drivers from the Notebook.

Restart the Notebook once the process is completed.

The Keyboard Drivers will be reinstalled and the issue should be fixed if it is with the Drivers.

If the issue is with the Keyboard Hardware, the issue remains and you may have to get the Keyboard replaced by contacting HP if it is under warranty.

If the Notebook is out of warranty, get the Keyboard replaced through any HP Authorized Service Provider like Best Buy, Comp USA or Radio Shack stores in US.
