tabath Posted March 13, 2010 Share Posted March 13, 2010 (edited) Hi, The u key on my dell laptop has stopped working, I've taken the cap off and checked the retainer which is ok, taken the silicon cap off which is ok, it seems to be a problem with the contact being made underneath but I don't know why. Anyway found a nifty utility that would alter the registry for me and map the u to an alternative ket. In my case I picked the right shift key. Things is it didn't work , I've gone to microsoft site and read their scan code mapper for windows help page:(http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/archive/w2kscan-map.mspx) I looked at the changes tweakkey had made to the rgistry and it seemed to me that the third DWORD value( number of mappings ) should be 03 00 00 00 and not the 02 00 00 00 that tweak key had put in. Here is the full scan code map data that is in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 36 00 16 00 00 00 00 00 Anyway still no joy. Has anyone her done anything similar and if so can you help? Cheers Edited March 13, 2010 by tabath Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
