Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

1 Answer

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop keyboard is typing odd numbers and symbols instead of some of the lettters. Examples, the letter "l" comes out "3" . Other letters come out as a back slash, etc. A plug in USB keyboard works fine, I replaced the keyboard with a brand new one. Still have exact same problem, and the USB keyboard still works fine on it. , any ideas?

Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

I have a problem with the keyboard on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. The key lock is not on but when I type numbers, I get letters as well. e.g. 1q 2w 3e 4r 5 6 7u 8i 9o 0p I also get numbers when I type...


Look if your Num Lock is on, then turn it off. Try also another keyboard, to see if the problem presists.
I think it's a very little thing, but i can't help you more unless i see it.

Good Luck :)

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

Your keyboard might be shot, the circuit board that is. Try calling Dell and sending it in for them to fix. Another way is to connect an external keyboard and changing the settings around in control panel with it.
