Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Alt-code stuck on

Apparently there is a problem with my keyboard. The alt-codes for 3,6, and 9 are all that will print from my 10 keypad. So if I try to type 3,6,9 it comes back as ♥,♠,9\.

How do I restore my 10 key to normal?

Try if in safe mode it will still have the same problem. If yes, then you may need to clean and replace your keyboard, but if not, then you need to reinstall your operating system. Be sure to back up your files first before doing that.

Are you talking about this ?. If so a trick to input it is to hold down the ALT key and press 149 on the numeric keypad. You can input all sorts of symbols, check out this list.

Number pad does not work


  1. Find Alt code.

    Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.

  2. Enable Num Lk.

    You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.

  3. Hold down "Alt" key.

    Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.

  4. Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.

    Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.

  5. Release all the keys.

    After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.

How do I get swedish letters on an asus keyboard?


You get special characters by using alt codes. That is, you press and hold the "alt" key while entering a 4-digit code using the numeric keypad (or, on a laptop, the keys that serve as a numeric keypad). When you release the alt key the special character appears at the cursor location. This page lists the characters and corresponding code.

If you are using an application like Microsoft Word, there may be an "insert special character" command available. Then you can pick the character from a table instead.

    Cant get the at button to work even by pressing shift or not,every other key function works.


    You may have a bad key, or a key with something under it.
    Try this:

    Turn the netbook upside down so that the keysj face the floor.
    Bang on the back side that way you would to burp a baby.
    Then, take a vacuum cleaner and **** out the spaces between the keys.
    If this doesn't work, you may have to make an @ symbol manually by using the ALT key. (ALT plus 64). This should work in most Word Processing programs.
    1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
    2. Depress the Alt key.
    3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
    4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.
    5. On a laptop computer, there usually is no numeric keypad. So, instead, depress the Fn (function) key, then the Alt key, then the numerical code sequence. The numbers are on the fronts of certain keyboard keys: M=0, J=1, K=2, L=3, U=4, I=5, O=6, 7=7, 8=8, and 9=9.

    ALT Codes


    I'm a little late to the game, but...
    I share James's frustration. Seems like a dumb thing for Dell to economize on. Here's my workaround, for what it's worth.
    1. Open the Windows on-screen keyboard (osk.exe). And, for later ease of use, pin it to your taskbar. (Detailed instructions: click on the Windows start button, type osk.exe in the search box, right-click on the program, select Pin to Taskbar.)
    2. On the virtual keyboard, open Options and select "Turn on the numeric keypad." After saving the setting, press the NumLock button.
    3. Here's the tricky bit: press and hold Alt on your physical keyboard, and then press and hold Fn, again on your physical keyboard. You're holding them both down, right? Keep doing it. Now enter your four-digit code on the virtual (on-screen) keyboard. Release the physical keys. You should have your special character.
    Hope it works for you.
