Hi - No probs.

The 'board bios' can be thought of as the mini brain that the computer uses before the operating system (eg Xp or linux) is loaded. It is built into the main 'motherboard' of your computer as one of the chips. To get access to it you usually are given an option to press 'F2' when you first turn on your computer. Once you get past this stage you may have to hunt around a bit to find your USB settings. Although system bios screens are varied beween computers they follow a similar basic structure. You may find what you're after in the 'advanced' tab. Just make sure you remember what you change so if it doesn't work you can go back later and reset.

***HEALTH WARNING*** Changing your system bios may prevent your system from functioning correctly - all the more reason to remember what you change and put everything back as it was when you started if you have any problems.

Hope this helps.

Function keys directly not working (working only after pressing Fn key button).How to open function keys F1 to F10 directly and calculator is not open. Please help me. Our Keyboard MODEL: LENOVO KU-0989


Welcome to Fixya

You need to enable it at the Bios. Reboot the computer and press the button that will lead you to the BIOS menu of the motherboard. Go to System configuration and go to actions keys mode. Press enter then select "ENABLED". Save settings before you exit then test the issue.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Rubber plunger came off the "i" key on my Dell XPS M1330 keyboard. How do I reconnect it? I have the key and plastic pieces that attach behind it as well.


Dear peg, As you have the plastic pieces, set it as previously it has, may you don't know but do it as much as possible. One think you remember that, set the plastic such that air can give pressure on the sensor. Apply some gum on the side of the rubber. After that see the key have lock which can set on the clamp which is on the key board. Set it and apply a little pressure. It will work. In real today the keyboards are non-repairable. So do it on your own and if you failure buy a new one.

My acer laptop5920 keyboard is not working properly some keys are giving me second function when pressed for example when i pressed key K, J, L, O,I,M, 0, and other it gives me 2,1,3,6,5,0,/ please kindly...


There are some countries that use the alphabet differently than we do so therefore they make a setting for the keyboard to work under a different program for them. I had the same thing happen to me and I thought I was loosing it. Go into your "control Panel' and double click or right click on the key board and open it up and it may give you the option to change to ASCII. Usually logging completely off then back on clears it up, you might try that. I don't know what makes them jump over like that, I didn't such a thing existed until a few months back. Now that I think about I believe I did just log completely off and let it set a minute or two and when it came back up it was OK. If that doesn't do it log off and pull the batteries and let it set a few seconds, it's programmed to default to ASCII.

Keyboard doesn;t work at all. Keyboard checks out OK at another PC


Is this a USB or PS/2 keyboard? If it is a PS/2 then the port that is integrated on the board is not working. If it is a USB, try plugging it into another USB port and see if it will work. If it does not work on either port then the ports on the system board are not working. It means u're having some malfunctions on the system board itself.

If it is a USB keyboard and it is that the USB ports integrated on the system board are not working, buy and install a PCI card with USB ports. It should work then.

Key board not working properly


The keybard probably has defective switches. They may have gotten wet or dirt in them. Not worth trying to fix. Buy new one...

They can be had off eBay for about $20 for brand new ones. Have a shop or competent person familiar with electronics work on it if you don''t feel capable.

The keyboard is USUALLY fairly easy to remove... USUALLY the second item to come off on a laptop when opening it.

well hmy friend let me allow you to know that a lot of the newer usb technology requires for you to use a 2.0 usb port and for example your keyboard might be one of them.. a 1.1 usb item will work on a 2.0 but a 2.0 wont work on a 1.1 hope that gives you a clue on what to do and sorry for your troubles hope you can get it fixed

Hi there I have a dell keyboard that came with my dell dimension 1100. A small issue is the fact that when the system boots up the default is numbers lock OFF. My preference is numbers lock ON - any chance...


I know Dell's bios is slightly different but on normal PC's the option can be turned on in the Bios settings. It's worth looking in the to see if it applies in Dell's case also

The keyboard types more than one letter when letter is depressed. Is there a way to set it so it is not so sensitive or is the keyboard defective?


try going into the control panel. should see a mouse and key board setting try changing the sensitivity in there. I know you can do that with a mouse. some key boards are just sensitive just give it a light tap and it won't do that your holding it down to long.
