Having problems with your Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook ?

Laptop keyboard is not working correctly

\015 When I use the "num lock" feature, the right half portion of the keyboard becomes numbers, too. The keyboard on this laptop is like the regular keyboard with separate number keyboard. My computer guy fixed this problem once before, but didn't know how he did it, said he was messing around with the buttons and got lucky.\015\012Please help, there is no point of having separate num key and can't use it.\015\012Thank you, \015\012Wyndi Pham \015\012\015\012When you hit the y button on the keyboard, the caps lock turns on. When you hit the 1 number key, it types three number. when you hit the tab button, the caps lock turns on.\015
