Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

3 Answers

My home row keys (and only those 8) do not work.

I have a Dell E1505 Laptop. Suddenly, my home row keys (and only those 8) do not work. I cannot even log in is administrator because my password contains letters located in the home row. Has this problem been seen before? Is there a simple solution, or will I just need to replace the keyboard?

Thanks in advance.

Will M.

HI Will, sounds like the keyboard is shorting out on you. Get the keyboard replaced but before you do, take the keyboard out and then reseat the keyboard back into its place onto the motherboard just to be sure the keyboard is seated properly.

Unfortunately, this is most likely a bad keyboard and the keyboard will need to be replaced. In the meantime, you can use a USB keyboard in its place.

Which key are they talking about when they say hit the del key


DEL is Delete. Usually found in a cluster with Insert, Home, End, Page Up and Page Down. With the Dell 6400 E1505, these are on the upper right hand side of the keyboard. (The "half" with the two rows of keys instead of 1 row of function keys.)

I hope this helps.

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys


Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.
For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.
SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)
If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.
