Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

I'm trying to put an fada (Irish language accent, which is like a gentle forward slash) over a higher case E. On my previous Toshiba it was shift/control/alt and the letter. That does't work with the Dell keyboard...any suggestions?

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1525 keyboard letter a doesnt work

They sell replacement keyboards for this model on Ebay. However, from personal experience with another Dell model - sometimes the connecting cord gets pinched, and some keys go dead. On my laptop, grip it the wrong way and keys go dead. Grip it another way, and they work again. But opening it up and fastening the keyboard again, then screwing it back together also might work.

But whatever you do, check this page:
It has instructions for fixing a lot of problems on Dells, including replacing the keyboard on this one, and also replacing single keys.

Your keyboard may be set to the wrong location.
check control panel / region and language / keyboard / from here you can set the default keyboard, if your region is not listed, click add, add your region, then set it as default.
If this is not exactly how to do it with your version of windows, google changing default keyboard plus your OS

How do I get fadas on a windows 8 Toshiba laptop

Dear Tara,

I am assuming that you have your laptop with a standard English keyboard, not a Latin or Gaelic one. So, to install a more suitable keyboard, please, do the following to change your keyboard layout:

  • Press Windows+R keys and type "intl.cpl" in the "Run" window that will open. Hit Enter. It will now open the "Region" window.
  • Go to the "Administrative" tab and click on "Change system locale" button.
  • Select the correct language (country) from the drop-down list. You may try "Irish (Ireland)", "Portuguese (Brazil)" or "Scottish Gaelic (United Kingdom)". Click on "OK"
  • Now, click on the "Location" tab and check if your region settings are appropriate. Using the same example as above, you may need to select "Ireland", "Brazil" or "United Kingdom", then click on "Apply".
  • Now, click on the "Formats" tab and check if your date and time settings are appropriate. Then click on "Language preferences". There, you need to click on "Add a language". Now, scroll down to the language of your choice or type the first letter of it. For instance, type "I" for "Irish" and you will be taken to a selection of languages that start with "I", where you could click on Irish/Gaeilge. After selecting it, click on "Add". It will now appear in the "Add a language" window, where you can move it up, in case you want to make it the default one.
  • After applying all these the changes, Windows will require a reboot. Reboot and see in the Task Bar if it is the selected one, otherwise, right click on the initials of the language and select the keyboard you want.
Hope you may find this (long...) information useful!

Best Regards,

Miguel L. Martins

I write in Irish occasionally and while I can get i, o, u and a fada using the Alt Gr and letter key, I cannot get the fada on the e .I used to be able to get this but now if I press Alt Gr and e nothing...

Try this
Press & Hold the Alt key and then your keypad key-in 232 then release the Alt key. You should see in your notepad/word the letter e-dash
Hope this helps (the original problem may have to do with your keyboard try another one if you have it handy)

I want to use the forward slash or the question mark but cant seem to figure out how.when i press the button it does this é or if I press Fn and that button it does this + .

Try checking the language settings in the keyboard settings?

Some keys enter the wrong characters

In Control Panel, click Regional and Language options.

Now click on the Languages tab.
Now click on the "Details" button and a new window called the Text Services and Input Languages will open.
In the section called "Installed services" are there any other keyboards installed? It should just say "Keyboard - US". If there are other ones listed and you do not want them you can remove them (they can always be added later).

Want to do backward slash; the key only performs # and no slash. also want @ to appear when I use the key showing that sign (currently use the " sign to get it)

The back Slash would be above the ENTER key and the @ sign can be accessed by holding SHIFT and pressing number "2"

In case you are not able to get the desired keys normally. It is possible that there may be something stuck between the keys. I would suggest you to kindly remove the keys and clean the base.

On my logitech keyboard Y-BH52 my back slash, comma, forward slash and bracket keys are typing in what looks to be french characters such as A's with accents on them...if you could provide any assistance...

hmmm it seems by mistake you have changed your key-board layout to french language.
  • Hold down Alt and press Shift. (Alt+Shift). Check the result by pressing thoes keys. If its back to original means you have installed both English/French both and can toggle pressing Alt+Shift.
  • Otherwise goto Start -> Control Panel -> Regional And Language Option.
  • Click on Language Tab, then Details button.
  • Now in settings tab you can see the languages installed on your system. You can remove un-wanted or/and select a default languages which you want.

Please post your feed-back
