Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?
KEYBOARD HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN!!!!
\015 Hi there,\015\012\015\012I bought a Dell D600 recently. It was a refurbished item and I have been very happy with it.\015\012\015\012All of a sudden yesterday morning, whilst typing, it either gave me the "DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS DOCUMENT" dialog box, or the dialog box that appears when you right click in the middle of a document, came up. Obviously it stops any typing and beeps at you.\015\012\015\012I have restarted several times. Done a troubleshoot with HELP & SUPPORT. Picked at the keys to make sure none are stuck - and still no luck.\015\012\015\012Please help me if you can. I certainly dont want to appear in the newspaper as the "lady from South Africa that threw her Dell out of the window and followed".\015\012\015\012Tee hee... jokes aside. I am SO frustrated and cant do any work at all.\015\012\015\012Thanks so much.\015\012\015\012Robyn\015\[email protected]\015
I have had this same problem before and it happened after I spilled tea (with sugar), on my keyboard. It may be that the prior owner spilled something on the keyboard. This can be fixed by ordering a new keyboard (the plastic circuit board), that fits underneath the actual keyboard. They can be purchased through Dell or Ebay and take about 10 minutes to install.

You send two pages of instructions with the keyboard, and supply the same information on the CD. Not everyone that buys your products is a computer geek, where you read the short instructions once and you have it nailed. I need step by step instructions, and I know how to install the batteries. I used the CD to install the software. Now what I would like to know is how I program my mouse left & right buttons to what action? Leaning left & right on the wheel produces what?
