The easiest thing to check is not the most likely, but because it is easy to do, lets swap out the keyboard first, make sure all the pins are intact if you're using a PS2 keyboard, and move the keyboard to another port if it's USB. See if that fixes the issue.

More likely, I believe your going to find this is a virus or a key-logger that has been crippled or made active by the system. But the easy way to tell is to take Windows out of the picture. Boot to the Windows install Cd and tell it you want to run the recovery console. If you can type at a command prompt without issue then it is something in your system.

It is unlikely you will, but if you have the same problem on the command line with a new keyboard, then the issue is the BIOS. You'll have to update it, restore it to default, or otherwise possibly replace the board.

Unlock number lock

On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

Shows i have excellent signal but video freezes often on dell d800 laptop

Does it freeze when you play a DvD on the system? if not, Video Memory is probably not the problem. I would say your problem is probably the streaming or downloading from the site you are watching the video from. Your line speed might not be high enough (for example, AT&T sells different line speeds and the lower the speed, the slower the download). How much main memory do you have? That might be a factor too. I would say you should at least have 1 to 2GB of memory.

I lost my sound when installing Windows XP , The sound card is built-in , with motherboard , how can i regain it

This is an common problem people have when they reinstall Windows, but it's easily fixed. You don't have the drivers to use the sound card.

If you have a CD that came with your laptop when you got it that is labeled something like "Drivers and Utilities", get that out and run it, you can install the drivers from there. If you don't you can download them online.

I can't find the drivers for you since you didn't post your laptop model, but you can easily find them by searching for them on your manufacturer's website (for example, I have a Dell so I would go to and search for my laptop's model), as they usually have the drivers listed there. If you can't find them on your manufacturer's website, then just try a quick search on a search engine like Google that says (laptop model) (driver type).
For example, if I was searching for a sound driver for my laptop, I would type Dell Inspiron 1420 sound driver. This should provide all the drivers you need. If you are having other problems after reinstalling, such as not being able to connect to wireless networks, those can be usually fixed by drivers, too.

your only option buddy,is to find and reinstall the original or a compatable operating system.
Perhaps you should check [Manufacturers site***!0]if you can "restore to factory settings " (using a hot key sequence)---FN/F10 (for example)(!)(most pc's are different,thats just an example!

If you are hearing an intermittent beeping sound at the start of the computer, its an indication that there is a locked key, if not it can be within your Windows.Create another Profile/Account and check if the same thing happens.

Enter BIOS Setup. At the Dell logo press F12 --> BIOS/System Setup. If the same occurs then its possible that a certain key is locked. Run the 32-Bit Diagnostics (At the Dell logo press F12--> Diagnostics )a an Extended Diagnostics --> Custom Test then do the Keyboard test you can test your keyboard's keys one by one to identify which key is locked. If under Warranty, call Dell Tech support, replacing the keyboard will resolve the issue.

However, if already out of warranty, you can try using an Compressed Air Duster can and spray it to your keyboard's keys to be cleaned up.

How can i find out how much memory, how fast my laptop runs, info on my dell inspiron b130?

right click on your computer and click properties.
in the page that opens you will see your computer details.
the speed is measured in GHz and memory in GBs or MBs.
usuall a memory of 1GB RAM and above is consider good.
speed varies according to your processor. for example a pentium 4 3GHz is slower thatn a core 2d duo processor with 2GHz.

Cursor skipping and jumping back into previously typed text


Have a D600 myself and found anothe post that worked for me!

First, my problem was replying to emails the cursor would jump when typing usually back up into the middle of the text somewhere.

If this is similar, read on.

First, go to Dell's website, downlaod the latest driver for the Alps Touchpad:

Download the driver but do not install yet. Note, this is for a Dell Latitude D600, Windows XP. Vista may have a different driver.

Open Control Panel/Mouse/TouchPad Tab/Touch Sensitivity Button. Open Touch Sensitivity, adjust below the halfway point on the slider. Try different settings, you may also want to check the "Tap off when typing" box.

If you do not show these properties as above, you probably don't have the latest driver installed. In that case, install the driver you downloaded above then come back and refer to the instructions.

I spend 90% of my day on this D600 and really love it, not a speed demon, but light enought to carry with one hand and is a great email/browser machine as you probably already know!

The keyboard characters does not correspond to what appears on sc

Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.
