Which operating system is installed?

in windows xp, go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages Tab
click Details

Under Installed services, the combinations of language and keyboard settings, currently available are listed.
The bold items are the active language, and the bold sub-item is the selected keyboard setting.
To add a new setting, click add and select the desired language and keyboard setting. I don't know which keyboard setting you need/want. Depends on where you live.
Also delete the keyboard layouts and languages, which you don't need.

A nice keyboard shortcut to change to another keyboard layout and language, is Left Alt+Shift. This switches to the next item in the list.

I have a single key (c) that wont respond on my keyboard on my inspiron 6400...can I fix it.


well you may try the onscreen keyboard by going to start-->all programs--->accessories--->accessibility-->on-screen Keyboard.

you can also try cleaning the keypad with a vaccum cleaner bu make sure it should not be so powerfull that it absorbs all the keys....try pressing it a little hard

if still it doesn't work there could be a hardware issue with that key
