A485: Intel Wifi, Keyboard Rumors, Strange Product Page and Storage layout

Q: A485: Intel Wifi, Keyboard Rumors, Strange Product Page and Storage layout

Hi, since information on the A485 is so scarce I thought I'd ask here: 1. On the product page it sounds like there might be an option for Intel WiFi instead of the Realtek. Is there a general timespan we will be waiting for it? This one is really important for me as Realtek is a nogo for me. Atheros would be nice, Intel would be OK. 2. How is the storage layout of the laptop: Can I have both a 2.5" SATA drive and an M.2 NVME drive? How do I need to configure it for that? 3. There are Rumors that the A485 has keyboard issues similar to the E485 where keys are sometimes picked up in the wrong order. Has anybody experienced or not experienced that? 4. The product page has a very clear mistake and one thing which is probably very misleading: In the description of the picture with the connectors it calls the smartcard slot an Ethernet extension port. And it also in the same picture description says something about Thunderbolt which I think the laptop does not have, right?

Dell is my preferred laptop brand, but these shared keys on the arrow keys are unusable.  I don't use desktops, so my laptop is my main workstation and I use these keys very often.
Ever since Dell got rid of the last row of buttons, I had to look for other options.  They claim that it makes the laptop more compact, but there are still ample space on the sides.  Look at the Dell Precision 5520 as an example - wide open spaces.  I liked their older design much better with the shortened right shift button and full-size arrow keys and home, end, pg up/down in the last row.
I now have a HP EliteBook 1040 G3 instead.  It's only 14", but comes with a much better keyboard layout.  That was actually the deciding factor.  It would have been a Dell otherwise.
I know many other people are also feeling the same way, so I hope R&D will address this.  I'll gladly switch back to Dell once they do.

A:Poor keyboard layout lately (Home, End, Page Up, Page Down)

Yeah, this has come up quite a bit, especially on the Precision models where as you say there's space.  I have a Precision 5520 and a Latitude 7480.  Not only does the 7480's keyboard feel better, but it has dedicated PgUp and PgDn keys right in a space where the 5520 has....nothing.  Would have been easy to at least add those.  As for Home and End being shared, my previous system (a Precision M6300) had all of these navigation keys in their proper 3 across, 2 down arrangement in the upper-right corner, which I loved, so using Home/End as shared keys was annoying at first -- but I have to say, after really setting my mind to it, I got comfortable with it after about 2 weeks, and now I don't have any real problem switching between my 7480's keyboard and my Das Keyboard Ultimate, which has a traditional layout.
Anyhow, these complaints came up frequently on NotebookReview in a thread where a Dell Precision product manager is active, so I think there's a chance things will improve with the next refresh. :)

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | ¥ -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...

I have a Dell M1330 Laptop that has served me quite well for several years. I just replaced the keyboard the other day and everything is working fine, except that the new keyboard has a slightly different layout than the old keyboard did. For example, with the new keyboard all the F1, F2, F3, etc.. keys have function secondaries on them like multimedia, brightness, antennae toggle, and so on. My old keyboard didnt have most of these and so when I attempt to use them on the new keyboard they simply do not work. In fact when I use function keys as if I still had my old keyboard installed the functions work, which means it is the software interpretation of the keys that I need to change. Does anybody know how I can fix this so that the keys of the new keyboard and functions match what the keys actually say?

Another thing to add is that some of the new function keys on the new laptop such as antennae toggle were not on my last keyboard at all because they are softkeys on the case of my computer, and I am not sure a function like that would be able to be added to the keyboard mapping at all, but I'm not sure.

Also, I would prefer to not install third party software to accomplish this, even if it means I need to delve into the registry manually. Can anybody help??

So I purchased a Lenovo X1 Yoga in Japan and I absolutely hate Japanese keyboard layouts (anyone that has used one after using a US keyboard knows what I mean - a space bar that is smaller than the enter key, poor placement of certain keys, specifically ", ', and @. There is just no logic behind any of it and honestly, there is no need. One can easily type in Japanese, just fine, with a standard US English layout keyboard. Sorry, I guess I didn't need to state that, but perhaps it will help with SEO to ensure someone finds this page when searching for those keywords.  Anyway, I finally found the information I needed to swap this keyboard out (and throw it in the trash), even though Lenovo support in Japan basically told me it's not possible. It does seem like a huge undertaking though (as you basically have to dismantle the entire laptop to get the keyboard out). But it does seem as though the English keyboards are compatible with all X1 Yoga laptops (even my Japanese X1 Yoga). The Lenovo customer service staff told me to get FRU PN: 00JT864 (00JT864 N KBD,US,LB,screw,CHY,Backlit), which is the US English replacement keyboard. It's also specified on the PDF document  on this page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/PD103738 ) for the 20FR and 20FQ. Scroll half way down and you will see it.  However, I am having trouble finding the keyboard from a seller in Asia, with the same FRU #. When searching for 00JT864, the only source I can...

Hi, I've got a large word document (2007) containing over 100 pages. However, in print layout view (the one I normally do editing in), you cannot scroll past p41. As you scroll into p42, word stops refreshing and updating the screen and moves you back into p41. I've uploaded the file so that you can see what I mean for yourself (although I have read the notice not to upload private data this problem is file-specific - I'll take it down as soon as a fix can be found):

feasibility study.docx

And also a linked excel file to go with it (in the same directory. I've got references in the word document if that makes any difference):

finance.xlsx

Oddly enough, I can see the whole file in outline or draft view, though I am unable see any pictures or charts. On print layout view, clicking any link in the document map that takes you past page 41 will do nothing, and pressing ctrl+G to jump to a page will result in word telling you that it "cannot determine the destination". Also, trying to print the document results in word showing a progress bar in the status bar printing p1, p2 etc until p41, then it just aborts silently. Oddly enough saving it as a 2003 .doc file resolves the problem, but messes up the formatting.

I really hope you guys can help.

Thanks for your support.
 

A:Strange print layout view and printing problem

After experimenting some more I found it to be a problem with the equation editor in word - I think it was that fact I had multi-line equations and after some combinations of undo/redo and deleting line breaks, ended up with two equations on the same line (it usually merges two adjacent equations) - i think that really messed word up, though to be honest Word should never have let it happen in the first place.

I think in the end its something to do with aligning characters on multi-lined equations that have empty lines in between, e.g ("<br/>" for line break, "|" for alignment character):

i.e. x|=y+z <br/>
<br/>
z|=m/n<br/>
<br/>
a|=b-c/d

When removing and creating the alignment points on these equations, the equation editor can often be slow or start causing the problems I mentioned before - I know its not just my version of Office since I've tried it on at least 5 different computers in 5 separate locations.

But anyway, I've replaced the feasibility study.docx file with one containing the culprit equations in case somebody from Microsoft looks round and decides to fix the problem.

See what you think.

Thanks

Hi bassfisher6522,

To solve this, you need to make changes to your 'Normal.dotm' template. Open Word and click the Office button. Select 'Open' and under 'Favorite Links' in the left hand panel click 'Templates'. Click on 'Normal.dotm' to open it. Next, click the Office button again and highlight 'Print'. In the options that appear, select 'Print Preview'. On this page, click 'Orientation' and set it to 'Portrait'. Close the 'Print Preview' screen. Again, click the Office button and this time click 'Save' to save the new 'Normal.dotm' template. Incidentally, you can create a number of templates to use with different default configurations such as paper orientation, font size, margins, ink colour, but the default template that opens automatically is 'Normal.dotm'.

Say I'm doing a resume. The left margin is 1.6" and the right is at 1.0".

In the left margin I want to insert a keyword, like Product Management, or Logisitcs just to the left of the body, to act as a subject guide for the reader. They can hop around to what they want without having to wade thru the whole doc. Most people if they use these keywords at all... place them as a line entry just above where new subjects start. This takes more room and it's not eye-appealing.

How do I insert these keywords? Without disrupting the doc.
 

A:MS Word '07 - page layout option?

Make each line that needs a keyword into a paragraph (may have to adjust paragraph spacing in the paragraph dialogue afterwards). Then adjust the left margin to a size that will accommodate the key word. Not a very elegant solution, but I'm guessing you don't have too many keywords to insert, so it shouldn't be too time consuming.

I was recently upgraded to Office 2010 and ever since I have been having problems printing in Excel. When I am editing a spreadsheet that someone sends me that was created in a different version, it always seems to spread the content over several (4 or so) pages. If I print it, it will print 4 sheets with sections of the content on each one, based on the page breaks. The problem comes when I try to format it any number of ways (i.e. by scaling it to fit on one page, or selecting cells and defining only those as the print area), I can get it to look exactly as I want in print preview, but when I hit print, it turns what was once 4 pages, and should now be one, into 80! It prints one cell per page, so some come out blank, others have individual cells printed on them, etc. It's nuts....I have tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

So this is really frustrating me.

I usually use the "United States - International" keyboard layout, since I like being able to do accents and use the Alt-GR key. However recently it has been causing problems and I'm not sure why.

One of the biggest examples is the ' key, usually if I press it and then a space it types either ' or ", depending on if I press shift or not. Well, in Firefox, I have to keep pressing the key about 4 times before it finally types two 's and I have to erase one. Pressing space does nothing. And if I press shift+6, it types "^^", as in, the character twice.

I could not figure out what was causing this, so I switched the layout back to US, and it works fine. But I simply cannot use US-International without it doing weird stuff. I tried "sfc /scannow", it found some problems and fixed them, but it's STILL doing the same thing.

Additionally, it appears something else weird is going on as when I try to use ALT codes, they don't do what they're supposed to... like most of them make a heart (♥) instead of what they SHOULD be doing.

I even tried making a custom keyboard layout, opening the normal US International on a completely different computer, then saving it and installing it on here, and it STILL does what I described above.

Has anyone else had a problem like this? I'd really like to get it fixed as without a working keyboard it's kinda hard to do my everyday business...

Welcome to Seven Forums Justanotheruser. Did you recently install, or have an update to Noscript or any ad blocker addons just before this started? Suggest disabling addons to see if this fixes the problem. Also, you can clear your cache, and see if that helps.

Hello to all,
I'm wondering if it is possible to change layout on only one page on the document.
I'm writing an article and I want to place picture on the page. Since picture is rather big, it better fits landscape layout page. I can also rotate picture and then paste it on my page, but then, I still have problems to write text below it like "figure 1: Engine...bla bla...."

Thank you

hi Mitjko,

Put a SECTION BREAK before the page you want to change orientation, and another afterwards to put it back again.

Insert / Break / Next Page

Recently two websites that I use a lot have been loading with page layout errors.
One is my bank website for internet banking and the other is an airline website I use a lot for bookings.
Have been using these sites for years no problems.
All other websites loading normally.
Am using laptop with Win7-64 and Internet Explorer 11.
Virus protection by Avira with recent update. Win Firewalls on.
Screen shot of problem page attached.
Have tried clearing cookies, cache, passwords, resetting all IE settings to default.
Avira was having no detections but installed Ad-Aware which found and cleared a Trojan.
System now apparently clean.
Compatibility mode icon not showing in address bar so assume no browser compatibility issue.

Japanese keyboard showed up out of nowhere. Did NOT install or select it. It cannot be removed... the "Remove" button is greyed out as shown in screenshot.

Any ideas?

A:Can't get rid of Japanese keyboard layout

Anyone? It seems to automatically switch to Japanese every once in a while. This is very annoying!

Hi,

I am using a XP pro sp3 and yesterday I just installed a Japanese Office 2007. The Office 2007 runs with out any problem.

The only problem I having is that my Computer doesn't recognize my Japanese keyboard. It is using a English keyboard layout on my Japanese keyboard.

I did change the setting at "Regional and Language" to recognize Japanese keyboards. But it is as if my XP only has the standard keyboard in it and no other.

Do I have to reinstall the XP again?
Is there a other way to make my PC recognize a Japanese Keyboard?

Thank You

A:Keyboard layout problem

hmm... Its just a guess, but I would wonder if you would need to install some kind of Japanese language pack ? I remember turning all these languages off (that's all I really know about them), but I'm wondering if one of the functions of the language packs would be to enable the keyboard to be used for other languages ?

Hello, I just joined this forum. I read in a previous forum that on the Ideapad 510, the page up and down keys are where the right shift key would normally be. I was curious if this is also the case on the Ideapad 320 15.6 inch model or if the 320 has the normal keyboard layout with the right shift key in its usual place. I am considering a 320, but the position of the right shift key would throw me off since I am a touch typist.

On my Lenovo notebook V110-15IAP N3350 the keyboard is for some reason not according to standard, which causes a great problem when using proper fingersetting. The shift key to the right is not correctly positioned and where it should located is instead the "arrow up" key. The consequence is that whenever I need to type a capital letter with the left hand (the left half of the keyboard) simultaneously using the little finger of the right hand, instead of striking the shift key the "arrow up" key is activated causing the cursor to relocate to the line above and type a lowcase letter there. Is there any rational explanation to why the keyboard has been obstructed and what can be done about it (without using an extra keyboard). Can the "arrow up" key be locked or removed somehow so that it is not activated. Preferrably though shift the two keys in question....

Hello, i've been using windows 8.1 for a little time in my new Sony notebook. First, i used windows 8 and had no problems, my keyboard layout was the correct one (Spanish - Latin Am?rica, 'cause i'm from argentina). But after an upgrade to windows 8.1, the default layout was set to Traditional Spanish wich does not suit the layout I see on my keyboard, signs are misplaced. I went to the control panel and under the idioms settings i set Latin American layout to my keyboard, but even with the correct configuration (checked with the layout image that is shown in the configuration menu), signs like ? and @ are still misplaced. What can I do? It really piss me when i try to write something and realise that it's not where it should be. Thanks in advance, and sorry for my bad English.

Thank you!

A:Keyboard layout cannot be changed

This is what I read:






There is a small change to the Control Panel in Windows 8 that involves splitting the Region and Language applet into two separate applets. This makes changing your keyboard layout a little more tricky than previous versions of Windows.
