I reinstalled Windows 7 on my Inspiron M5010 laptop. Now I no longer have wireless. The F2 key which normally would turn it on no longer works. I gather that I no longer have the drivers for the top row of...

The function key on my dell laptop was set to the F keys, meaning you have to hit the function key and then an F key to activate the F key. I switched it in the bios so I don't have to hit the function key to activate the F keys. So I would have had to hit Fn+Ctrl-Alt-F1 for example to get to TTY 1. Now since i switched it off in the bios All I have to do is hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to the terminal. But in order to turn off wifi from the F key (for example) I have to hit Fn+F2. It's switched.

Sounds like a keyboard problem. You might want to try replacing it check on eBay. Also can you determine when this happened and maybe something you did like install something. Check windows update for a hardware update. If that doesn't work try restoring the computer with system restore.

I have a problem with the keyboard on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. The key lock is not on but when I type numbers, I get letters as well. e.g. 1q 2w 3e 4r 5 6 7u 8i 9o 0p I also get numbers when I type...

Look if your Num Lock is on, then turn it off. Try also another keyboard, to see if the problem presists.
I think it's a very little thing, but i can't help you more unless i see it.

Good Luck :)

Hello Rich,
This happens when the nubmers which are on the alphabet keys are enabled. You can stop this by holding Fn key on the notebook then press Scroll lock once. This will disable these number.
