Verify that you are using the proper laguage setting for the keyboardI had that problem on my acer when I bought it but a friend of mine adjusted the language and works just fine.

Hope this helps.

I guess a reinstall of the driver could fix the issue as the software seems not responding the way it should......Hey if u have a USB port try connecting a usb keyboard and see if it has the same problem.....

2 keys of hp laptop keyboard not working

If you find that some important keys are not working on your notebook keyboard, they can be difficult or, more often, impossible to fix. The best solution is naturally to have the keyboard replaced. This is a big enough job on a laptop as the machine has to be taken apart to replace the keyboard.

Another solution I reccommend is to REMAP that keys that do not work. Using a small program you can tell your computer to use another key instead of the key that does not work. In this way you can take, for example, an important key like the "delete" key, and remap it to an unimportant key, like the "Alt Gr" key. Then pressing Alt Gr will perform the delete function. This is really a temporary solution but if you can live with it, then by all means use it permanently.

The best program for this process is called SHARP KEYS and is free to use. It can be downloaded here:

It is very possible that a fluid (water, moisture, coffee, anything) might have poured into the keyboard and now affecting it. Unfortunately, these keyboards are rarely repaired, but instead replaced. Go to your dealers shop to discuss replacement of your Dell Vostro Keyboard.

sounds like a faulty keyboard to me, I recommend removing the keyboard, and blowing out the connector with a can of air and reinstalling the keyboard. if that does not work I would connect a USB keyboard to make sure it is not a setting. If a USB keyboard is working fine, replace the keyboard.

Keyboard types upper case digits instead of lower

It sounds like you may have turned on the calculator function - Does one of your F keys have a light on - F10 or F11, if so Press Fn and the key that is lit up.

Keyboard don-t show the correct symbols

Your keyboard setting in Control panel regional and language options is probably set to US International.
This option allow you to create every special character using combined keys see this page for MS instruction>
If you have a localized keybord (Portuguise, Brazilian or else) you can get the symbol corresponding with keys if you configure the exact keyboard instead of US international.
Of course for same language you can configure multiple keybord.
You can also use for every language the On screen Keyboard you get in Start/program/accessories/ accessibility
