Hi, 
I ordered a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series laptop. I live in Belgium so the keyboard is AZERTY. Despite repeated requests to QWERTY keyboard, Dell refused to change it saying AZERTY is standard and cannot be customized. ANyway, so can I just pop out the keys and replace them physically? I know i can put stickers, but thats a last resort.

if you can get the keys off without causing any damage, please be careful. Some keys are not the same at all. The alphabetic ones can be changed.

I have a Yoga 3 14 with azerty keyboard and I want to replace that with a qwerty keyboard, a physical one not just to change Windows settings or anything like that. So my question is; do I have to do anything else besides get the qwerty keyboard and replace the current keyboard with it (yes, I'm fully capable of doing that)  or do I also need to do some BIOS confiqurations or something like that?

Hi,

I was just in the middle of writing a rather large and important assignment (using Microsoft word 2008) for an English Class when a peculiar thing happened...

It seems as though whenever I go to type an apostrophe this - ? - pops up instead. It's the same for these other keys;

< = '
> = "
/ = ?
? = ?
[ = (nothing)
{ = ??
] = ? (lower case)
} = (upper case)

Can someone please tell me what is going on?

A:[SOLVED] !Please help! QWERTY keyboard problem

Hi. . .

I would suggest that you go into Device Manager and un-install all of the drivers related to the keyboard. Vista will re-install them upon re-boot.

START | type dev into the start search box - select Device manager uptop.

Expand the keyboard tree and un-install the drivers 1-by-1 until they are gone. Then re-boot.

Good Luck to you. . .

Although there are two languages and several keyboard layouts in Belgium you would probably have a French Belgian keyboard.

Control panel > regional and language > keyboards and languages > general > installed services > add > and select either Belgian Comma or Belgium French as matches your keyboard.

Then remove the prior inappropriate entry(ies) and OK your way out.

Totally dependent on your own level of skill and adapability.

It will vary between individuals to such a large degree, there is no way we could make any reasonable attempt to assist you.

I'm using Office 2008 on my MacBook, and I use the Dvorak keyboard layout.

A couple of days ago, Word decided that only the left half of my keyboard was Dvorak, at least for shortcuts. This means that if I want bold text (Cmd + B, which is Cmd + N on a QWERTY keyboard), it opens a new document.

It works fine if I switch to Dvorak + QWERTY commands, but this doesn't work in all applications, and is quite frustrating.

I've tried deleting Normal.dotm, but it doesn't seem to have helped.

Today while typing in notepad, the keyboard suddenly switched from Dvorak keyboard layout to Qwerty. Yesterday Opera did it. Before Opera did it, Open Office did it. When I close the offending program Dvorak is restored.

Is anybody else having this problem and/or know how to prevent it?

Try using ctrl-shift. If that causes your keyboard to switch that might be your culprit, not capricious randomness.

I use Qwerty and Dvorak key layouts and this switches between them. Tried to configure with the Regionalization control panel and that doesn't seem to remap this keystroke. It's definitely inconvenient for spreadsheet users.

Like I said it is a touchscreen and neither the hardware keyboard or touch screen keyboard will do any thing (well it is like the computer understands i am doing something with the keyboard, but not typing. Ex. i will type and the curser line will do nothing but suddenly go like an italicized line. The mouse works and the touch screen works but I cannot type anything. I have wiggled the keys thinking maybe something is stuck but no help. also I have restored it to its factory settings thinking maybe he accidentally set some keyboard sleep command or something. We are both not smart at this, and again it is not my computer, he has it for work, so who knows what he did to it. But yeah, after restore it still wouldn't work and now I am stuck at the registration "getting started" windows and I cannot bypass them....or don't know how to without being about to type. The last it worked he said he cleaned it with pressurized air, so I don't know if that was too much for the keys...if he actually blew dirt into it, or what strange thing could have happened...but the fact that both touch screen and actual keyboard aren't working I am left stumped.

Hi folks
 
I've had success on this forum before and I'm hoping someone with more knowledge of IT than me can suggest a workaround/solution to an issue I currently have with a Windows 7 (Home Premium) laptop:
 
This is an old laptop that I only use from time to time, but it still has a number of files and photos on it that I don't have saved elsewhere.  Last time I used the laptop, it was acting as if the Ctrl key was being pressed every 2-3 seconds which made the keyboard difficult to use (because it triggered shortcuts as I tried to type: Ctrl + O, Ctrl + S etc.).  Because I don't use the laptop as my main machine, I decided that I'd uninstall the keyboard driver from within the Control Panel and just use the on-screen keyboard going forward.
 
Following this, I powered the machine on a couple of days ago and panicked when I discovered that I couldn't get the Ease of Access dialog box to display on the login screen to allow me to enable the on-screen keyboard.  It doesn't produce any kind of error – it simply does nothing when the button, located in the left-hand corner, is clicked.
 
At this point I was still hopeful that I could get around the issue by connecting a standard USB keyboard, but this is also completely unresponsive (although it does appear to be getting power from the laptop because the Caps Lock indicator light is lit).  I've tried a few alternatives: connecting the keyboard before powering up, during the start u...

If you are just interested in recovering your data to save elsewhere you could purchase an external enclosure for about $8.00 at Newegg, remove the HDD from the laptop and install it in the external enclosure.  You can then attach it to another computer via a USB cable (which comes with the enclosure) and access your data to recover what you want.

At first I thought it was my USB controller going out, but if it was, then how come the windows On-Screen Keyboard still does this?

Dear Friends,

Using the on-screen keyboard of Windows XP, if I press the right <alt> key the keyboard <tab> row shows keys. If I type those keys I get all of the characters shown on the keys except the "". In its place I get a "".
