Is there a way to turn arrows on and off?

on the keyboard laptop itself you can not , but you do that when plug another USB keyboard And follow the following instructions :

    • 1 Use your USB port to install a wireless keyboard. You'll only need it during this process.
  • 2 Download an application to remap your keyboard. InchWest makes the MapKeyboard program that will work (see Resources). For InchWest, after you click the link for the download, you will see a dialogue box giving you the option to unzip the file. Click "OK" to unzip the program. Open and run the MapKeyboard file. SharpKeys and KeyTweak are two other applications that operate similarly.
  • 3 Disable the arrow keys using the layout that will appear on your screen. Highlight one of the arrow keys, and then, in the field at the lower left of the screen, type in the key that you want to take over the arrow function. Save your changes. The program will ask you for permission to get into your registry to finish the remap, so grant the permission if you have administrator rights. The program requires .NET Framework 2.0 or an updated version to make changes to the keyboard function; if your computer doesn't already have it, you can download it for free from Microsoft.

    Shortcuts have locked up on my pc

    Conflicting Extensions

    Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.

    Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.

    Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.

    Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.

    Key Reassignments

    Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.

    If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.

    For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.

    If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

    Virus Infection

    Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.

    If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.

    Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.

    Browser Software

    Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.

    Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.

    For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.

    Hope this helps.

    Configure keyboard buttons

    Status: No need for registry backup, the 1.1 version of the software allows you to delete all key modifications within it, in order to return your keyboard to normal.

    I came across a nice utility for changing keyboard keys in Windows. It's called Sharpkeys. Basically, you open the program, select which keyboard key you want to change (such as Left Alt), and choose what key you want it to actually be (such as Left CTRL). Here's the website:

    On the 7405gx, it will do all of the keys except for the Function key and the special hotkeys that control volume, mail, etc. For example, I assigned the "'\" key to the left of the spacebar to be "Left Alt" and the left alt button to be "Left CTRL", because those keys are more natural for my fingers to press. Physically the keys look the same, but their functions are now different.

    Once you've installed the program, open it and you will see a black screen with green text and some buttons. To add a new key assignment, do the following:

    1. Click the "Add" button
    2. To select which key will be changed, click on the "Type Key" button on the left under "Map this key (From key):" and click the "OK" button OR select the key from the list.
    3. To change what character is actually typed when you press the key, do the same as #2 except choose the "Type Key" button the right under "To this key (To key):"
    4. Click the "OK" button.
    5. Click the "Write to registry" button.
    6. Click the "Close" button.
    7. Restart your computer or logout. When you load back up, the key changes will be in effect.

    You can revert to the original state by clicking the "Delete all" button.

    This is a neat program because you can change your laptop keyboard keys to do whatever you want. Please post any comments, questions, or suggestions and I will update this post as necessary.

    NumLk issue

    I found the following at:

    This should do the trick...
    After some search I discovered that the Numlock control status can be controlled using a registry key which can be found here:
    HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Keyboard \ InitialKeyboardIndicators
    Simply change the value to either 0 for off or 2 for on.
    1. Start the Registry Editor
    2. Go to Start
    3. Select Run
    4. Type regedit
    5. Work through the tree to get to HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Keyboard
    6. If the key “InitialKeyboardIndicators” already exists then change its value to the appropriate number, if not, add a new key called “InitialKeyboardIndicators” with the appropriate value.
    7. Click OK
    8. Restart
    For the lazier amongst you, simply copy and paste the code below in to a text file (in notepad), save it as "FixMySoddingNumlock.REG", close notepad and double click the file:
    To make the Numlock OFF by default use: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard]
    To make the Numlock ON by default use: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard]
