Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook

DELL LATITUDE D620

I used the laptop for the first time today but I had trouble with the purple fucntion keys that are on the same keys as the normal letters e.g. J K L. To type the corresponding letter I had to depress the Fn key first and for upper case I had to depress Shift, Fn and the letter.

Qyestion? How do I get it to toggle the other way so that I can select Fn when necessary but can type normally the rest of the type?

Hey
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

Cheers
Kushal

How to restore my D620 to factory settings without a CD?


Hello there!

Well its impossible to restore any of todays laptops without their factory os dvd/cd. You could setup new operative system and make your laptop simmilar to what it was on factory settings, or you can search dell to send you that same cd/dvd on your post mail to your house.

I suggest you read http://www.dell.com/ and contact them in order to solve your problem. Hope i helped you! =)

Sincerely

How do i restore to factory settings without disk?


I assume you mean factory installation. You need the disks. Unless there is a recovery partition, unlikely on this model. Alternatively you could find an oem windows xp home or professional depending on what coa sticker is on the laptop and install that.

Dell latitude d620 wont turn on


Did you upgrade the RAM when you upgraded to Vista. The D620 does not have the resources to run vista as pre-configured and requires, at the least, a memory upgrade. 1gb or greater is recommended.

Please upgrade the ram, or try F8 during boot for Safe-Mode and see if your RAM is not the issue. To check the amount of RAM you have:

Press and Hold Windows Key + PauseBreak

If you still have 256mb or 512mb vista is likely to barely crawl.

Let us know what you find.

Dell latitude d620 needs factory restore


Apparently your model of laptop doesn't have a recovery partition. You're going to have to get out the Dell Operating System CD for your laptop, boot to the CD and reinstall Windows the old fashioned way. Make sure the product key on the laptop case is handy.

Is any cheap battery for laptop d620


Hi - i've ran a D620 now running a D630 and yes the battery life is extremely poor even when the battery is new.
The option above will give you extra - you can also buy a moduler battery that will fit into the CDROM port which will give you even more!

or ebay is your best bet...

Screen image is distorted small using Epson EMP 821 with Latitude D620


Check Epson"s support site to see if there is a driver for the projector. Some projectors require a driver for the visual clarity, and lots of times the driver disc doesn't come with the projector, go figure, and don't ask me why.
