Turn off the computer, disconnect and reconnect the keyboard, restart your computer. If that does not work, try a different keyboard. If that still does not work than try a usb keyboard instead of a ps/2 keyboard or vice-vers. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Brither printer MFC 210c unable to clean


disconnect power
press and hold menu
reconnect power cord
power up the printer
when all lights are flashing, release the menu button
type 80
press start black until PURGE:xxxx appears on the screen
if the number after purge is greater than 6000, type CRUD (2 then 7 then 8 then 3)
it should now read purge:0000
press stop
type 99
restart the printer.

If this works, you will need to purchase an ink purge kit, or you risk the purge tank overflowing eventually.

Keyboard is not responding it does sometimes then stop again


Step 1
  1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  2. Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  3. Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  4. Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.
