Dell XPS 13 :: Fn Key Typing Letters

Apr 11, 2013

I cleaned my xps 13 ultrabook last week with foamclene. I didn't spray it directly on to my keyboard but must have had too much on the cloth. Anyway my fn key is now typing letters from the middle row of kes, in varying combinations - jfsda, jfsd, jfs, jfa, jfk. When I noticed, I left the machine upside down to dry out for a few days but nothing changed.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Keyboard Not Typing Properly - Just Misses Letters

Sep 17, 2009

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.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545: Fast Typing In Webmail Results In Missing Letters

Jul 31, 2009

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 .....

Dell Latitude E5540 :: Doubles Letters And Spaces Randomly?

May 6, 2014

I regularly find that,  with a  single keystroke, my brand new Dell Latitude e5540 laptop randommly produces 2 spaces (most often) and double letters (sommewhat less often than the doubled spaces, but consistently and  predictably). The faster I type, the more oftenn the errors occur... I have  found  it to be an issue of how hard I strike the keys. The keys  controlled by my dominant right hand are most often affected whereas those controlled by my pinkie fingers NEVER have been affected.

I  amm only one of many employees at my place  of  work who all are experiencing the same problemm. I have asked repeatedly for Dell to let me know the extent of this problem and whether they have a recall of this model (which, as far as I can tell, is pervasive with this particular mmodel). My persistent questions have never been answered by Dell, despite numerous contacts with 3 different agents.

P.S. If you notice double letters where there should  be single letters or   extra spaces in this e-mail and this post scrippt, please read on for the reasonn: I am using the brand new Dell Latitude e5540 computer our school system recently purchased to write this e-mail. I have simmply givven up  editing my typing... you're getting the spontaneous errors caused by this computer so you can see for yourself and hopefully to motivate Dell to fix the problemm soonner, rather than latter.

  IMPORTANTLY, if you are having similar problems with YOUR BRAND NEW Dell Latitude e5540 laptop you specifically will NOT have tthese problems if you use an external keyboard... it only occurs with the laptop's built in keyboard) PLEASE send me your servvice  tag (S/N) nummber from the bottom of your Delll LLatitude e5540 computer and I will include your commputer in my conntact with Delll about this problem. (It is  a problemm of this particular model... I have never experiennced this before with any other computer).

Dell :: XPS 15Z Keyboard - Cursor Jumps All Over The Place While Composing Emails And Letters

Jul 12, 2011

I have an issue with the keyboard on my new 15z. The cursor seems to have a mind of its own and jumps all over the place while I am composing emails and letters. This happens at random. What is causing this. I have tried disabling the mouse pad and using a USB mouse but the problem persists. I have tried being extremely careful not to touch the arrow keys located in the bottom right hand corner of the keyboard area but the problem continues

HP/Compaq :: Less Then 1 Month Old, Letters On Keyboard Are Already Fading

Mar 15, 2010

I've had my DV7T CTO for less then one month and the keyboard letters (on each key) are already starting to fade/rub off. This is insane! I suppose I'm going to have to do without a computer now to send this in to get it replaced instead of HP just sending me a replacement keyboard... Why do they insist on everything being sent into them? A keyboard replacement takes all of 5 minutes to do.

Apple :: Option Codes For Greek Letters

Jan 22, 2010

I know that I can use the character palette to do this, but I'm looking for a faster way.

I actually do have to use a few Greek letters with some frequency.

I know there are a few:

Option+J = ∆
Option+W =
Option+P =

and so forth, but what about the other "biggies" -- alpha, beta, and gamma, for starters? Can't seem to find 'em; either there are no such codes, or I'm just not creative enough.

That explains it. Have a PDF where something as simple as a lowercase alpha, beta -- or a division sign -- is rendering as a blacked-out box.

In Font Book, all fonts on this machine are listed under PDF, as well. Running OS X 10.6.3.

The PDF works fine on a friend's Vista machine.

Dell :: Quick Typing On Inspiron 1720 Bug

Feb 7, 2009

My problem is that when I type quickly, sometimes cursor jumps to different position in text so it spoils what I wrote already before.

It's really annoying and I can't find out why is this happening.

I thought that maybe it's related somehow to this laptop.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Typing Glitch

Sep 14, 2009

I'll be typing on a website or a document, and suddenly the cursor will appear somewhere else in the document. It doesn't happen all the time, maybe once every couple of minutes of continuous typing, but it's incredibly annoying espcially when the cursor appears all the way at the top of a long text.

I think it's some sort of software error, because I don't remember it happening before I did the clean Vista install.

One time when it occured I happened to be pressing the Shift key, it selected all my text, which makes it seem like it thinks I'm pressing an arrow key or something (but my hands are only touching the letter keys)

Dell Inspiron 15R SE :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Apr 7, 2013

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.

Dell XPS M1530 :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Jun 18, 2009

This has been happening when typing emails in Outlook. It will be interesting to see if it happens while typing this. So far it's been OK. I have a Dell XPS M1530. There it did it just then, the 1530 jumped into the subject field. It always jumps into somewhere I have already typed. So it doesn't just happen in Outlook. It is very annoying. I am using a Bluetooth mouse, but also there is a touchpad just under my hands. Could it be that I bump it by mistake?

I don't know it that's the problem as the touchpad cursor is different to the typing cursor. I'm watching the touchpad cursor and it's not moving. The typing cursor is behaving itself now. I have just moved the touchpad cursor up the screen a bit and the typing cursor is still behaving itself.

While I am typing my hands are well clear of the touchpad. It just jumped again, and it did not jump to where the touchpad cursor was, so it's not related to that.

Dell Inspiron 4100 :: Position Of Cursor Changes While Typing?

Sep 21, 2003

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.

Can this be turned off?

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Few Specific Characters Appear Only After Typing Key Twice

Jan 6, 2013

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...

Dell XPS 15z :: Cursor Disappears Every Few Seconds Whilst Typing

Aug 10, 2011

Dell xps 15z ... I have an issue that the cursor disappears every few seconds whilst typing

To clarify it is the cursor and not the mouse pointer. When you click the mouse the cursor reappears in the right location so its not being moved by trackpad etc.

It appears that the tab/window open become de-active and the cursor disappears.
