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.

Probably. Look for a replacement battery on eBay. I have threee d600s and about a year ago I bought aftermarket batteries on eBay that work fine for about 1/3 the cost of a genuine Dell.

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

On/off button keeps jamming and sometimes won't turn on


it might be worth trying to replace the power button. look at this link

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Dell-Latitude-D600-Power-Button-Cover-8M659_W0QQitemZ390041669076QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_LaptopAccess_RL?hash=item390041669076&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2|65%3A15|39%3A1|240%3A1318

only other thing i can think of is that if it gets hot then some laptops will not turn back on for a while to prevent hardware damage. if the power button solution doesn't work then don't be scared of opening it up and hoovering any dust out of it and while you are at it you could check that the processor isn't loose aswell because heat can loosen the connection when it expands and contracts.

i hope it helps and please give me a fixya rating if it solves your problem.

Thanks

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!

or ebay is your best bet...
