    I have a nonfunctioning "enter" key on my Dell Latitude, and can't reinstall Windows XP because of it.  (Normally I just use an external keyboard, but in boot mode it won't work.)

    Any advice on fixing the key, or working around it?  I tried entering the ASCII code (13), but had no resonse.

When i press the the key between the z and the c everything i've typed disappears which is why i have to write the "key between the z and the c" i have a microsoft wireless lazer keyboard and mouse

Sounds like the x key is acting as a delete key. Try another keyboard on the computer, if the same thing happens then its a setting in the computer that is causing it to happen. If the problem goes away with another keyboard then that means the original keyboard is bad.

My wireless keyboard suddenly is not working, almost all keys. Battery is good and some keys work, but it's not normal

Things to try:
  • unplug USB connector and plug in a different USB port if available
  • locate wireless reset button and press, type various keys over the next 10-20 seconds
  • clean keyboard thoroughly
  • reinstall keyboard drivers
  • last resort: check warranty and replace keyboard if still under warranty
I hope this helps.

Arrow keys do not function

When that happens it is usually because the arrow keypad connector is broken.

Try first doing a system restore , to a date before the problem started.

Also reinstall the wireless keyboard software , to ensure it is not a software problem.

If all that does not work, then the keyboard is probably broken, test it on a different computer, and eventually replace it.

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Slow and Intermittent

It can be a couple of things. 1. Try replacing the keyboard & mouse's batteries with fresh batteries. 2. Try moving the wireless receiver closer to the keyboard. 3. Make sure the receiver is not located too close to other electronics like a tv or dvd player. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Tecra 8200, I have bought a replacement keypad

take it to a shop. because i know how to do it but you hav to take the whole cover of the laptop then take the old one off and put the new one on the screw everything back. the thing you shouldnt have bought a new keyboard. because its not the key pads its probably the panels under them might be meesed up. but you can try to open it up and install the new one but one mistake could cost you $100 or maybe $200 so the chance is pretty risky

The Print key is not working

it depends what system you are running cetain programs and windows operating systems dont accept this shortcut

try going into controll panel clik keyboard and make sure hot keys are on

the only other reason is if you have eny other wireless functions running these can disrupt the signal from the keyboard to the computer turn off all wireless items and try agen

if none of these work try replacing the keyboard as it should work as long as hotkeys are on and the operating system you have accepts this function
