I have a problem regarding my lg x110 notebook. some keys are not working properly like the letter g on the keyboard, when i hit the letter g it appears letter c on the monitor same as letter t and z and...

Examine your keyboard for any build-up of dust, dirt, liquids or other particles that could be causing the keys to type the wrong characters. Allow any loose dirt to fall out by inverting and shaking the keyboard lightly.
Confirm that your keyboard is set to the English language. Go to your control panel and click on the "Regional and Language Options" icon. If the setting appears to be in a foreign language, change it to English/U.S.
Check if your number lock key is on. If so, depress the key to disengage it.
Run a character key test by using the Microsoft Keyboard Diagnostics (MSKEY) program. While in the MSKEY program, hit several keys to make certain that they are the same keys that are identified in the MSKEY window. To start MSKEY in Windows Vista, select "All Programs>>Accessories>>Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the box and depress the "OK" button. Start MSKEY In Windows XP by clicking on "Run" from the Start menu. Type "mskey" in the Open box, then hit "OK." Depress either "PS/2" or "USB" to apply it to your type of keyboard hookup. MSKEY software is only available with Microsoft IntelliType version 1.1 or later.
Remember to clean your keyboard regularly to keep it free of dust and debris.
Don't disassemble the keyboard because it may affect the validity of your manufacturer warranty!

How do you get a letter on the calculator

Some keys have a letter of the alphabet next to them. The letters are A, B,C,D, M, X, Y. They correspond to memory registers (memory locations) in which you can store values.
To enter a letter as when you are entering an expression with variables, you press the [ALPHA] key followed by the key next to which is the letter you seek. To enter letter A, You press [SHIFT] [(-)] if I am not mistaken.

i dunno for a dell laptop but generally for laptop keyboards the extra letters on j , k , l are for numpad. i . e the combination of 8,9,0 u , i , o j , k and l ..make a numpad tht is present on the right in a normal keyboard.

i guess what must have happened in ur num lock would have been ON making the num pad ON and hence u cant access the keys j, k , l directly ..
solution would be to switch OFF num lock (to switch of num pad lock press Fn + numlock present in the f1 - f12 series ) this sould solve the problem ..
For further assistance feel free to mail me at

I need help with my key board. When I use the letter key the number comes up. Such as I push J and get 1 I push K and get 2 . How do I get back to using yhe letter. Thanks Marion

Marion, I imagine this is on your laptop? You need to turn off Number Lock. On Toshiba Laptops, I am pretty sure you hold down the "FN" key and the hit F11. That should turn off your Number Lock. If you look closely at your keyboard, you will see that J corresponds with 1 and K corresponds with 2 and so on.

Hope this helps! Let me know!
