Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Browser Deactivated When Typing And Have To Activate It Again
Jan 26, 2013
I bought my Inspiron 5520 in the States in July, 2012. The problem that I have now, which is quite annoying really is that when I type in a browser, it becomes deactivated and I have to activate it again in order to continue typing. It happens very often and it's almost impossible to have typed a long message or a document without a browser being deactivated and me having to activate it again and again. Same happens with Word.
I'm facing a very strange issue in my Inspiron 15R 5520 which I bought in August 2012. There are few characters, which appear only after typing the corresponding key on the keypad twice.
e.g. If I want to type tilde(~) character, then I have to press the key on the lest side of Numeric key 1. But, if I press it once, nothing appears on the screen. And If I press this key twice, then I get two tilde (~) characters. Same behaviour happens for four other characters. Given below is the list of characters, which do not show up by pressing key once, rather twice.

Surprisingly, when I was typing keys Shift+6 in the compose area of this forum, then the character caret (^) appeared after pressing key once. Whereas, if I try it in Notepad or Word Pad or in the address bar of Mozila FireFox, I'll have to press the key twice so that character appears twice and then delete the extra character...
I was playing a game and alt tabbed then i got a blue screen and my computer restarted. After it restarted a blue screen popped up saying activate windows now. What should i do and how do i fix this , because of this my office stopped working as well.
I have Dell Vostro 1400 and I am facing a very wierd issue. My laptop types automatically in the search or in a browser if it is open and in any application that it can type. It mostly types "asdf;lkj" like this. Again when I use a media player it automatically increase or decreases the volume to the max. and sometimes restart the player. It again sometimes automatically locks my computer.
1. I have already formated my laptop many times and also updated the BIOS as I thought it as a VIRUS problem. Also, I have tried different antivirus software but all in vain.
2. I have also dislodged my laptop keyboard and using an external keyboard; but this is also not working.
3. Prior to all these I have called DELL Service for support. But they also could not offer me a satisfactory answer.
I've got a DELL Inspiron 15 3542 . with Win7 64 bitsi downloaded all drivers from this sitewhen i try to install Bluetooth driver (Network_Driver_NT9P6_WN_126.96.36.199_A00) it shows an error message "Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch" . i can't find a solution ....
I have this problem of wireless in my 15R 5537. I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1 recently only to know that wireless driver was incompatible. I then visited the Dell support site and downloaded the wireless driver for the model i'm using and the OS installed. But when I tried to install it I got "Activate Bluetooth using wireless switch" error message.
I didn't know what wireless switch was since (fn+f2) was not working either. I came to know that there is wireless option in bios menu from various posts. But there was none in my laptop under "Advance" option in bios menu. I run bios version A08.
I tried to reinstall old windows 8(with a different CD this time) but wireless didn't work in this one either...
I have an Inspiron 15R SE 7520 and while typing, the cursor frequently jumps around and will begin typing in a previously typed line. This is extremely frustrating. I am running Windows 8 and have looked to find where I can adjust the sensitivity of my touchpad but can't find it anywhere. I've seen other posts for other computers that suggest uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling it. What I should do for my specific laptop to stop this from happening? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall the touchpad driver. If so, how do I do that for the Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 running Windows 8? I'm also keeping my hands off the touchpad while typing but the cursor still moves.
I seem to have trouble with my on-screen keyboard when using the Dell Inspiron in tablet mode. Supposedly the on-screen keyboard will pop-up whenever I activate a text-insert area (such as search, or firefox, or IE, or etc) but there is no response.
In addition, I should be able to toggle it on/off through "settings" by swiping right but the keyboard icon is not available in settings when I swipe right. I *can* turn it on by going through..
Settings --> Ease of access --> Keyboard on
Though technically it shouldn't require those extra steps and I don't know why it isn't popping up on it's own. Also unsure why I can't find the icon in settings.
This laptop is brand new so I didn't change anything on it yet....
I recently upgraded my dell inspiron m5110 from windows 7 home premium to windows 8 Professional from the online store at microsoft. I am quite annoyed about my trackpad getting in the way while typing. the cursor will sometimes unclick, jump onto another part of whatever I am typing or click onto everything and erase it! since i have downloaded windows 8 i have not found a way too disable the trackpad. i use a seperate mouse and i want to permanently disable my track pad.
I have in inspiron 4100 for about 14 months. I have noticed that while typing, the cursor my move back to a different position in the line, move to a previous line, or jump to another text box altogether. It drives me crazy that when I type, I never know if there is some combination of keys or if I accidently touch something to make the cursor change position.
Is there by default some combination of keys that cause cursor movement. It has happened 4 times while typing this message.
I just got my laptop and having trouble with the keyboard, the top rows are typing double digits, my number keys are having letters in front of them and or symbols appearing in other areas of my page.after two days already tired of backspacing to correct or keep starting over and over again.
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop and my mousepad does not work while typing. This is an annoying default setting and it prevents me from being able to play most computer games. I have already tried changing the dell touchpad settings (Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Dell Touchpad) to no avail, and I am not willing to get a mouse.
From time to time the cursor jumps to another line whilst I am typing. This can happen on any software, ie MS word, Hotmail. It can even happen when I am entering a user name and password into any system, for example this forum.
It is very frustrating and some tiesm a simple email can take a long time to type...
I own an inspiron 1545 which works properly for the most part, except for a small, but annoying problem. Sometimes, when I type, instead of characters or numbers appearing on the screen, the computer would perform random tasks like try to open a file when I press O (and I am not holding down the Ctrl key), save my work when I press S (again, no Ctrl key), and change my typing language. It used to run on Vista, and was recently upgraded to 7, but the problem persists.
For example, typing the word 'frustration' would sometimes lead to this:
frustrati (Open dialogue box appears)
It's especially annoying when it changes the typing language mid-sentence.
I teach online and my new Dell laptop Inspiron 15 3520 is useless. I cannot use it in online chat with students because now the cursor is moving to other lines of text and inserting my typing. I uninstalled the touchpad driver as that seems to be something recommended here. I tried to reinstall from the Dell website and it failed. So now I not only have an awful computer but a useless one. I'm regretting the Dell decision after just a week.
I have only had this latop 3 months and it is missing keys when I type. It isnt that the laptop is slow and needs to catch up, it just misses letters and I have to keep going back over the text and filling in. It gets very frustrating putting passwords in and letters and numbers miss.
I've browsed the discussions and have seen problems similar to, but not exactly the same as, my problem, hence the new thread.
Problem: I have a brand new Inspiron 1545 from Dell online. When I type text in Internet Explorer (e.g. webmail applications or this forum), even at a relatively slow speed, many of the keys don't seem to register --
that is, letters or spaces whose keys I press do not show up on the screen. As a result, I must type verrry slowly to make sure that every letter/space shows up, or else go back to re-type it. Strangely, I do not have this problem when typing text in, say, Notepad .....
I have Dell Inspirion 3520 Laptop, And its come with Window 7 and I have recently its updated with window 8 after this i got a issue that when I start typing the cursor jump to somewhere else or select something.
I have an Inspiron N5050 which has a couple of issues. First issue is the cursor will move to other parts of the screen (where the mouse is) while in the middle typing. The laptop is setup with both Win 7 & 8 and it happens in both Windows versions. How to correct this or should I chuck this up to typical Dell poor quality control??
A few days ago I was using my laptop when the notification that I had to plug in the charger or my computer battery would die popped up. So I plugged it in and used it for a few minutes when suddenly the screen went black and the computer just shut off while plugged in. I noticed that my charging cord had a green light when it was plugged into the wall but the light went off as soon as it connected to my laptop. I've tried letting it charge, I've tried holding down the power button, I've tried removing the battery and plugging it back in, and I've tried a newer charging cord but the computer still won't turn on. No lights come on even when it is plugged into the wall.
Wireless network is deactivated by hp connection manager after hibernating, sleep and sometimes when I use the computer. I can't see any preferences in HP Connection Manager to correct this, or in Windows power management.
What is the solution to keep the wireless network activated ALL THE TIME??
Uinstall of the HP Connection Manager doesn't work, then I can't activate the wireless network again!
My computer:HP ProBook 4530s (brand new) Windows 7 Pro (included with the computer)
No other power or wireless utilities installed, just HP utilities as installed from the factory.
