Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands require me to hit FN first.

You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

Dell inspiron n5030....touchpad not working..not showing in device man..have d/l drivers,incl synaptics.mouse device settings box emtpy.enable/disable greyed out.


Are you certain that the touchpad wasn't disabled accidentally from the Fn key? There are secondary features assigned to each of the Function (F1-F12) keys, usually in BLUE. On of them is to disable/enable the touchpad (toggle-type function, do it one time to disable, the next to enable). You press and hold the "Fn" key (next to the Windows key at bottom let of keyboard, then press the associated Function Key.

How to connect my dell latitude laptop to my symphonic tv via s-video cable


Run the S-Video cable from the laptop to the tv. Take the tv's remote control and hit the Select Input button. Select S-Video or PC as your input source. Reboot the laptop and the video might show automatically.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Screen is rolling constantly


. Sounds like its time for a new lcd screen. Try plugging an external monitor to the laptop and see if it behaves the same way. If the external monitor scrolls, then you more than likely have a Video Card problem. If the external monitor displays without scrolling then your lcd screen is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display

Wireless is disabled on dell vostro 1540


Look on both sides of the laptop for the switch or button. Look in the front of the laptop too. I've seen the wireless switch at the bottom of the lcd screen on either the left or right side on some dell models (you just press it).

Normally the keystrokes to get the wireless going requires you to Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the key that toggles the wireless (F1 thru F12). The correct F1 thru F12 key might have the wireless icon )))) on it.

Which switch will turn on the wireles net connection


The keys along the top ranging from F1 to F12 will have icons on them. you will need to locate the icon that resembles a WiFi tower or radio signal.
By default the F1-F12 keys are inverted performing their functions such as turning WiFi on and off so the Fn key will not need to be pressed unless you have changed this setting (typically in the BIOS). If pushing the button with or without the Fn doesn't turn your WiFi on and off then you may be missing the software needed for this to function correctly and you will need to visit Dell to download applications related to your wireless.

Dell inspiron keyboard issue?


There is a keystroke combo that enables or disables those keys.
They should work. Can't remember the keystroke, but it's a FN plus one of the keys--should be a symbol on the keyboard.
