I have a Inspiron 6000 laptop, recently I formatted disk and reinstalled XP system, I could reinstall all drivers, and after reinstalling system, all hardware could work normally. Anyway, keyboard could not work normally. Some function keys on the keyboard don’t respond, and there’re also some problems with the layout, some keys don’t print the letter marked on them. And I modified and set up my keyboard in control panel, but the problem could not be solved thoroughly. Therefore, hope you could give me some suggestions or solutions. Thank you!
1): If there’s no keyboard driver, then you could set up manually to recognize it. Check up your language settings, modify the settings, probably it could help you solve the problem.
Otherwise, download Dell shortcut, you could find its driver on Dell website under the applications; you must run the shortcut driver, which could enable your keyboard function keys and let your rest battery capacity display. I’ve tried it, if there’s no shortcut, only Fn+F2 could work. But if you installed the shortcut, then all function keys on the keyboard could work normally.
2): My suggestion is that you could not eliminate the possibility of hardware connection problem. Now that all drivers have been installed, and system finished reinstallation, only the keyboard failed to work, then probably there’s something wrong with the connection between keyboard and motherboard, probably you need to reinstall the keyboard again, you might disassemble it, but
