My inspiron 1545 types two letters at once


On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.

You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination


would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.


hope this helps

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

Keyboard letters wont work but only top row Of numbers


On a notebook computer, there is a FN key that when pressed with the appropriate special function key will disable the normal keyboard and enable the alternate letters (printed in a different color) on your keyboard.
Unfortunately, I can't remember which special function key that is--but the icon on it should give you a clue.

The num lock key controls letters on regular keyboard.


Let Number key stay off then you could use normal 1234567890 that is between QWERTYUIOP and F1-F12

My laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers


It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

Main keyboard


The kkkkkkkk problem will be a sticky key, possibly something jamming the contact under the key.
The p* problem is your numlock is on. Laptop keyboards don't have numeric keypads like dsktops do, so when you press numlock on, it uses part of the keyboard to emulate a keypad.

You will probably have to press something like shift+numlock or ctrl+numlock or FN+numlock to release it. There should also be a light at the top of the laptop to indicate it's in numlock mode.
