If its a wireless keyboard, replace the batteries. If its not wireless, try plugging it into another port(if possible) and if it still doesn't work, you probably have a defective keyboard.

Turn off filter keys


The Filter Keys feature in Windows enables the system to ignore keystrokes that it determines are unintentional, such as when you press a key quickly or hold it down for too long. This is a particularly convenient feature if you are learning to type or have trouble typing. However, if you turn the feature on by accident, the system may mistake your typing style as mistakes and ignore some keystrokes. Open the Ease of Access Center to access the settings to turn the feature off.

Click "Start," then select "Control Panel." Click "Ease of Access" at the bottom right corner of the window. Click "Change How Your Keyboard Works" under Ease of Access Center. Uncheck the check box next to "Turn on Filter Keys" in the Make it Easier to Type section. Click "Apply," then "OK" to save the settings. Hope this helps.

Wifi problems with Dell Inspiron E1705


LOL, sounds like you didn't hit the correct key or keystrokes.

First of all look in front and on the sides for the Wireless Switch and make sure it is turned on. Then once it is on you can toggle the wireless on or off by Keystrokes. Press and Hold the FN key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the icon of the wireless signal )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))). Normally when the correct keystrokes is hit the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Look on both sides and the front of the laptop for the wireless switch.

Once you have the switch turned on you can also toggle the wireless on or off by keystrokes. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. It might have the icon of a tower plus the wireless signal icon )))). When you press the correct keystrokes the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off.

My vaio vgn-sr220 keyboard wont read some of my keystrokes. this has only happen twice add i haven done anything to the laptop.


Make sure you don't have any spyware or viruses on the laptop because that will cause some keystrokes not to register cause memory may be taken up by viruses or spyware.

Run your viruscan to make sure it removes any spyware or viruses that might be on the laptop. Also make sure you don't have alot of programs running in the background. A good indication is if you have alot of icons in the bottom right hand corner of the screen where the time is located. If you do, disable then and see if the keyboard responds better.

If you do all of this and some of the keystrokes are still not responding, then that means the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

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.

Pressing shift key for @.Getting" instead.


includes what are known as "accessibility options" that are designed to make the computer more usable by people with various physical challenges. (Prior Windows versions include similar functionality but I'll focus on the XP specifics here.) Several of those options relate to the keyboard and are fairly easily enabled. Let's say you're frustrated with your work and start pounding on the shift key (or as was my case alternately pounding on both shift keys). If Windows sees the shift key pressed five times in a row it assumes you're asking for a feature called "Sticky Keys". This feature makes the Shift, Alt, Ctrl and Windows keys toggle instead of needing to be held down. Windows does throw up a confirmation dialog, but that's easy to miss if you're still pounding your keys and happen to hit Return.
"No, Windows isn't getting even with you though it might seem that way." Maybe you're not that violent. Perhaps you're just lost in thought as your finger slowly descends on the Shift key. 8 seconds later Windows thinks you've asked for something called "Filter Keys" which is a way to ignore brief keystrokes or repeated keystrokes. If it's the Num Lock key you've held down for 5 seconds, Windows will ask you about something called "Toggle Keys" which beeps a tone whenever you press Caps Lock, Scroll Lock or Num Lock.
To be fair, Windows does try to ask before turning on one of these features, but if you hit Return by mistake and the feature gets turned on, it can be frustrating to try and continue to get work done if you didn't realize what happened. And that of course can lead to more keyboard pounding.
The good news is that they're easy to turn off and it's also easy to turn off the detection that got you into trouble in the first place. If your keyboard is in one of these strange states, I suggest using the mouse and selecting: Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Accessibility Options. The default panel that comes up will in fact be for the keyboard options. There you can turn off whatever happened to have been turned on. While you're there for each of the three options, press Settings, and uncheck Use Shortcut. Now Windows will no longer misinterpret your random keystrokes.

Please give me good feed back i am not getting paid

Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.

By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.

In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.

This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

My laptop does not respond to keystrokes. Could


I would say its probably because either the keyboard is bad or the cable from the keyboard to the motherboard needs to be reseated.

You can always try to keep pressing the F8 key as soon as you turn on the laptop and see if you can get it to go into the boot menu. If you do then you know the keyboard is fine, you can always go into safe mode and choose a system restore back to the last date the keyboard was working properly.

Give it a few tries and if you can't get it to go to a boot menu then the next best thing to do is to turn off the laptop and then take the keyboard cover off. Once you have it off then go ahead and unscrew the screws that are holding in the keyboard. Take out the keyboard and then go ahead and put the keyboard back in.

If you do this and it still isn't responding to any keystrokes then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
