    I have the same problem but on my laptop , I have an inspiron 700m ..it seem to be software related because the keys work fine when i log on (my password has letters with the associated function number);however, after im in windows (Xp to be exact) I have to use the fn to get the desired letters(3etters)....as i am doing now.

    If i attach a usb keyboard the problem does not exist

Function keys


Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.

Where is the wireless switch on the front or side, wireless turned off and says I need to turn it on with this switch on my 1505


Check all around the laptop for a switch. If there isn't one, I know the key function for Dell Latitude D610 laptops is 'FN+F2?. It might be the same for inspiron...

Have a nice day :)

Dell Inspiron 1525 cannot connect and says I need to turn on wireless capability using function key combination - what is it?


Hi,

The wireless radio combination should be the Fn+F2 keys to activate it. That is to hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.



Regards.

My function keys are turned on. how do i turn it


Press the Fn key and the Num Lk key... the reason that your j is a 1 is that the J key is the equivalent of the 1 when the Number lock key is activated. There is a little light up near the power button that shows a lock with a 9 in it... hit the Fn key and the Num Lk key till that light goes out.

Must hold function key down.


Hmm...first, is your "scroll lock" key lit up? if it is, you activated the number key pad for your laptop. if fn + scroll lock doesn't work, try re-installing the operating system (xp or vista) although it may be a pain :(
