You can, but they are expensive and they are most likely just going to change it out for a new one. You can get a new keyboard off Ebay for less than $20 and change it yourself in about five minutes. Bestbuy is going to charge you at least $100 for the new keyboard plus installation at $85/hr labor.

HOW TO DEACTIVATE TEH Fn KEY IN DELL LAPTOP


Hi names Rui, to turn Fn in you dell you need to:

1. Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key.

2. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens.

3. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it. So i hope this will help you.

My secretary was using my computer and now I can't get the "insert" key or the numbers pad to work. I have a dell wireless keyboard. When I bought a Dell laptop several years ago I had to...


Welcome to FixYa.

As a standard troubleshooting for wireless devices please do the following:
  • Restart your computer.
  • Open note pad and test your keyboard.
  • See if the keyboard functions properly.
  • Open MS word and test your keyboard.
  • See if it functions properly.


Tell me the results in Notepad and MS Word so that I can determine if it's the macro in MS Word that turns the INSERT and NUMPAD key off.

My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

To determine if the keyboard is faulty ot the keyboard controller chip on the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop. If this USB keyboard functions correctly then the laptop keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If this keyboard also malfunctions the the fault is on the laptop's motherboard.
You may be able to get it repaired under warranty.

Function keys are not working with windows7 on dell inspiron Laptop


The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

Hope this helps.

How do i access the function keys on the studio 17


I do not use studio but I do use Dell Inspiron.

In order to access the function keys look for a unique button on your keyboard. In my laptop its "Fn" its colored blue and the function buttons are also colored blue(they are underneath some other buttons), so if I want to access the functions button I have to hold the FN button and then press the switch that also has the function button.

For example:
1. the button "Q" has "F1" under it
2. So I have to hold FN and then press Q to access F1

This should be similar to your laptop

Problem with overheating.


Hi Dear. Always Pick n Place notebooks very carefully. When need to pick with both hands you can pick it in any direction but when need to pick with single hand, always use vertical position, without pressing and forcing any area. Place it on any flat surface where you are sure that exhaust system of CPU's fan is well ventilated. Heating problem may occure due to many reasons. Verify CPU fan function in BIOS, Clean CPU cooling fan and exhaust system with Electric Blower. NEVER use continuous charging, plug out charger wire when battry is 100% full, charg again when low battry alerts. This will increase battry life & backup time.

The mouse on Dinovo edge keyboard not working at all


It is possible that your touch-disk is turned off. Try pressing the Fn key (RHS of the space bar, between the alt and ctrl keys) along with the "right mouse button" (the right button underneath the touch disk) -- when you press the Fn key the word "On" will light up above the button.

If that is not the problem, perhaps the driver software was not properly installed or the keyboard is defective. You could try reinstalling Logitech's software.

Good luck.

- Les.
