Dell D600 keyboard replacement

Hi,

since the keyboard on the UK Dell D600 Latitude of my daughter was broken, I bought a new one on eBay.co.uk and put it in.

However, I got a US version (my fault), which is OK except that I don't know how to get and put in a US keyboard driver. Would you be able to give me pointers?

Thank you

Geert

It depends on which operating system you use. In the old days of DOS, you probably would have written "keyb us" in your config.sys file. As a Windows (XP, but 2k is similar here) user you would just have to add an US Keyboard layout to your locale settings in the control panel, and set it as default. As a Linux user, you would most likely use your configuration utility of choice, depending on the your distribution (for example, YaST on (Open)SuSE).
But, if you haven't returned the keyboard for another version, keep in mind that you could as well keep your settings and use a set of stickers to re-label your keys. Those are sold by various laptop dealers, or on eBay.

I hate neighbors! I had given my laptop to the boy livin next door and he returned it with the shift key missing. I will have to buy a new keyboard now 


Hi james,
sorry to hear that your kindness to another has been let down .
to replace the keys or the whole keyboard is not too big a job .
try searching on ebay for a replace keyboard ( in the uk around 20 pounds ) or buy a used one and change the key top
this is a link below to ebay as an example

Price is a bit better but its just knowing what the shipping is going to be.

Dell Latitude D600 Power button functions intermittantly. I need to know wher to get one and how to replace it.


I would suggest a couple of things first:

1. Have you tried removing the power button strip and checking that there is no obstruction underneath that might be causing the issue?
2. If you have a docking station do you get the same issue when using the docking station power button - this would help eliminate if it is a motherboard issue.

Dell do have some handy manuals on line that can help:

This shows how to remove the power button bezel:

http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1111863

This shows the small removable power button board (just to the right of the arrow labelled 1) - it is held in place by 2 small screws with the connector underneath which fits onto the motherboard.

http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/en/sm/sysboard.htm#1000461

The power button board can be found on eBay for around £5:

Hope this helps

I need to replace a usb port. I have bought a new usb board, but want an idea how to go about replacing the old board before leaping in cold.


Hi,
If you are refering to the Dell latitude D600 laptop . This system doesnot have a daughter USB board. The USB ports are on the motherboard itself. Refer the service manual below
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/sm/index.htm

If you are seeking help for a desktop, You need to open the cover from the tower. And connect the USB card on the white long PCI slots on the motherboard.

Thanks for using fixya

B key on my Dell Latitude popped off


Generally, once a key pops off a portable keyboard the keyboard needs to be replaced. It is pretty simple to replace and not too expensive.

Here is an example of a replacement on Ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-KEYBOARD-DELL-8500-500M-Latitude-D505-D600-D800_W0QQitemZ250338315590QQcmdZViewItemQQptZPCA_Mice_Trackballs?hash=item250338315590&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

To replace the keyboard, just remove the hinge cover, take out the screws for the keyboard and lift the keyboard to release the cable connector.

Is any cheap battery for laptop d620


Hi - i've ran a D620 now running a D630 and yes the battery life is extremely poor even when the battery is new.
The option above will give you extra - you can also buy a moduler battery that will fit into the CDROM port which will give you even more!
http://www.google.co.uk/products?hl=en&q=d620%20modular%20battery&cr=countryUK%7CcountryGB&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wf

or ebay is your best bet...
