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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!Usually DELL passwords are stored in eeprom memoriesthat has to be read or writen to remove / bypass the BIOS password!!! Passwordgenerate a hash code that will appear after 3 wrong password attempts and ithas a 5 digit decimal format "xxxxx"
Another way to obtain password is by generate a unlock code or master password from the service tag that comes with the laptop in the bottom in the sticker (service tag "xxxxxxx")
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.
is your motherboard got the usb keyboard enabled in bios this maybe your problem if you have devices pluged in remove from board and plug usb keyboard into the first usb slot this is on bottom near ps2 slots see if this resolves problem.
hope all goes well
