Keys not functioning properly. Typing wrong sybols

You can reseat your keyboard's cable. You will need the manual of your computer to do this. If reseating the cable will not work then you may have to get it replaced.

Keyboard is locked

Does the problem occur outside of the operating system? For example, can you use the keyboard to enter the BIOS on boot up or if you are using Microsoft Windows, can you press F8 on the keyboard thereby causing the Microsoft Windows Boot Menu to appear?

If the keyboard does not function outside of the operating system, the problem is a hardware problem. If that is the case, you may need to reseat the keyboard cable on the motherboard. Maybe the keyboard cable has come loose.

If the problem is hardware related and reseating the cable does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the keyboard.

Keybord layout

Have you tried reseating the keyboard? This means you need to remove the keyboard, pull the keyboard connector off the motherboard and then reseat the connector. If this does not work, sounds like you need a new keyboard. Spill anything on it lately? Is it dirty, full of crumbs of food?

Dell inspiron 6400 keyboard is not working

Do you still have the dell diagnostics cd and the drivers and utilities disk, you can press f12 and boot to the cd and then run the diagnostics, if not its either your cable is not connected anymore and you need to reseat the cable, you can follow these instructions or if after reseatting the keyboard and still it wont work then you need to purchase a keyboard for your system.
