Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Dell inspiron M5010. I have had it for about 6 months.The problem started with the keypad. At first certain letters/numbers wouldnt work at all. Then the computer had been unplugged from the power source and died. I let it charge over night and went to turn it on this morning, and nothing. If you hold the power button down the second light on the buttom (there are three) lights up then the first than nothing.

Sounds like a hardware fault, try taking the battery out and plugging it into the mains and see if that will start your laptop up.

Failing that have a look at the underneath of the laptop for the RAM cover...If there is 2 sticks try with only one in and if that doesn't work try just the other RAM stick in.

Try these things and let me know how you got on.

Mfg date


Every Dell part has a label with a long serial number in the following format:
CC-PPPPPP-MMMM-DDD-SSSS

CC= 2 letters, country of origen (e,g, TH for Thailand, CN for China).
PPPPPP= 6 alphanumeric, Dell internal part number, most times starts with 0.
MMMMM= 5 numbers, Vendor ID.
DDD= Manufacturing date code
first digit= number, manufacturing year (e.g 8=2008, but on old stuff could be 1998)
second digit= alphanumeric, manufacturing month (1=January, 9=September, A=October, C=December)
Third digit= alphanumeric, manufacturing day of the month (1=1, 9=9, A=10, B=11,....and so on).
SSSS= 4 alphanumeric, serial number.

Not sure what date code you are looking at unless a "Plain Language Request" was made for that series in which case it would have been manufacturered 2020 - February (02) - 19th. Not a lot of these and I have never seen them on Dell but I guess anyting is possible

Number and letter keys are stuck (type) together


This model has no numlock as it has no keypad. It looks like a faulty keyboard as the linked keys appear to be in the same column in the keyboard grid. You could try Fn+F11 as this solves certain other keyboard problems with symbols etc. Otherwise could be a new keyboard required.

I have an inspiron 1526 with 2 flashing padlock icons and a black screen i cant turn it on what can i do?


Those are Diagnostic indicators that point you to the possible cause. The padlocks will have a number ( Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.) or capital letter(Turns on when the uppercase letter function is enabled.) or arrow key(Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.).
According to those indicators you either have a bad memory module or your CPU (processor) is bad.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Certain letters are not working


When keys go faulty the entire keypad needs replacing. You can't replace individual keys. I would suggest contacting dell and ordering a new keyboard, it's an easy fix: http://www.essortment.com/articles/install-replacement-keyboard-dell-inspiron_102151.htm
If you need to purchase one, I did locate: http://yallstore.com/laptop-keyboard-replacement-for-dell-inspiron-1525-p-4228.html For $16
