Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Keyboard Numpad Keys Not Working
Mar 31, 2013
My Dell Inspiron N5010 keyboard is not working properly. The keys from numpad not working. And sometimes left arrow too. If I press some key of them is appearing random letters or numbers. Sometimes they change my volume, brightness, and touchpad /enable-disable./ My OS is Windows 7. I have tried Ubuntu 12.04, but and there is similarly.
I recently purchased an HP 250 G2 laptop with no operating system (freedos) After Installing windows 7 home premium x64 I went to the HP support web page and downloaded all drivers, installed them and everything seems to work without problems.
The only problem is that the HP support page does not have any drivers for the keyboard and the outcome is that all the FN keys are non functional.
In device manager the keyboard is shown normally because windows 7 automatically installs drivers but these are not 100% compatible so that FN keys would be working.
it is very important to be able to use fn keys so that I can change brightness, sound level, and tun on/ off wifi.
I have a HP K2500 Wireless Keyboard which purchased arond 3 months ago and for some reasons now I can't use the keys y,h,n,m,j,u,5,6. i changed the batteries several times and I tried to test it other computer and laptops and it is still not working.
i've recently just repaired the jack connector for my hp pavilion dv6000. I put it all together today and my keyboards playing up. Quite a few of the keys arent working. I've checked the connection for the keyboard and its pushed in as far as possible.
I just removed the LED dashboard cover and then the keyboard in a LATITUDE E4300 and used some compressed air for a simple spring cleaning. after I carefully put everything back together, the following keys stopped working 9 O L .
I repeated the process a couple of times to make sure I didn't make any mistake, but still those keys don't work.
The numbers 1-4 on my Y580 keyboard don't work anymore. I only realized this recently as I had been using a separate USB keyboard for some time. I've tried all sorts of things - uninstalling and uninstalling the keyboard drivers in Device Manager, reinstalling the BIOS, unchecking all the boxes under the accessbility options, scanned the computer for malware...but nothing seems to work.
I've also installed Windows 8.1 and replaced my HDD with an SSD...
Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro on my HP Pavilion (dv7-1223ca) , several keys on my keyboard haven't been working properly. I've upgraded and downgraded my computer many times, and this hasn't happened before. When I press the G, H, backspace, or apostrophe keys, they won't work unless I press one of them around thirty or forty times. Once I get one of them working, they all start to work properly for about five minutes, and then it goes back to being broken.
This is a major hassle as I use my laptop for work. I've tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers, but this hasn't worked
Also, two of the keys on my keyboard (alt and delete) came off completely and won't go back on. Is there any chance HP would be able to replace these?
Knocked half a glass of water over keyboard yesterday. Turned off & wiped away straightaway. No problem re-booting etc but now some kets along top 2 rows not working.After a day - do you think there's any chance these will spring back into life?Do Lenovo supply any on-site repair options (at a cost obviously).....can't spare time at moment to send away - even for a couple of days.
Ive had this Acer laptop E1-510p with window 8.1 and all of the sudden some of the keys accross the keyboard stop working. These keys are random and even when i plug in a generic keyboard it does the same thing ....
I just bought a Dell computer from my friend, the mouse worked until last night, now both the mouse and touchpad aren't working!I've tried pressing the button that turns the touchpad off and on, and it did absolutely nothing.I CANNOT use my mouse at all.
Every time I turn on my Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop, I get the following message:
"The AC adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge. The system will adjust the performance to match the power available. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for the best system performance."
I don't know why I am getting this message since:
- I am using the 65W Dell AC adapter that came with the laptop- The adapter is charging the battery properly- The green light on the adapter stays on all the time when in use- The port connection is fine
So, other than this annoying error message, everything seems to be working fine. Should I just ignore it ? If not, what else do you recommend I do ?
3days back droped my laptop? My system is Dell Inspiron N5010, it has a i5 processor and 6 GB of DDR3 RAM.
Basically, here's what happens:

I have a Dell n5010 laptop.... sometimes I have seen that laptop is getting shutdown automatically after 5-6 minutes of powered on. Lots of internet search I came to know about HWiNFO software which shows cpu temperature and fan speed.... I have seen sometimes cpu gets heated up but the fan is not started yet causing overheat issue.. so as shutting down the system... my bios is up to date as per dell website latest bios driver version A15... I am sensing that that the thermal sensor may be not working properly always... Please note down not always it is happening sometimes it is happening...???
I am having a problem with my keyboard on my dell studio 1737. When you press certain keys on the keyboard the adjacent keys are activated as well as the key itself. I've tried various techniques I've read about to correct the problem such as removing power from the laptop for an extended period of time and installing new bios drivers but nothing seems to work. From the information I can gather this is a common problem with this model of Dell laptop. What is the best way to correct this problem. Will replacing the keyboard correct this problem or is there some other problem causing the malfunction?
Inspiron Ultrabook 15z 5523...A few of my keyboard keys, including the spacebar, stopped working for 48 hours (estimate). I tried everything I could think of and everything support told me to do. restarted. nope. support program that checks keyboard: nothing. Suddenly keys work again, but in the process Dell sent out a guy to replace the keyboard. He replaced it. The new keyboard just did the same thing. Must be a hardware, motherboard issue or something. I need this <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU> computer for design/developing/school/projects.
