A few specific characters appear only after the introduction to the keyboard key twice in Inspiron 15R 5520

Dear all,

I am facing a very strange problem in my Inspiron 15R 5520 I bought in August 2012. There are a few characters that only appear after typing the corresponding button on the keyboard twice.

for example if I want to type a tilde (~) character, I have to press the fear side of the number key 1. But, if I press it once, nothing appears on the screen. If I press this key twice, then I get two characters tilde (~). Same behavior occurs with four other characters. Below is a list of characters that do not show by pressing the button once, rather than twice.






Surprisingly, when I was typing shift + 6 in the field of the composition of this forum, then the sign of the (^) character appeared after press the key once. Whereas, if I try in Notepad or Word Pad or the Mozila FireFox address bar, I have to press the key two times so that character appears twice, and then delete the extra character.

Can you help me please?

Thank you



The problem is with the keyboard language setting. You may have selected English (International) while setting up your laptop / desktop at the beginning.

Go to control panel of-> all items from Panel of control-> region and language-> Formats.

Change Format English (United States). It should solve your problem.

  • GetAxisScalingMode is updated only after the graphic update


    on a xy chart, I'm traced multiple xy plots and a few vertical lines (2 or 4) to indicate some areas of interest. For the development of these lines, I need to know the value of y minimum and maximum of the graph. That's why I thought using GetAxisScalingMode (autoscaling value), which returns the maximum value without the need to investigate individual data sets (large) of the xy plots ideally.

    In principle, this approach works.

    Now, to avoid flicker, I use the following sequence:

    (1) SetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_REFRESH_GRAPH, FALSE);

    (2) plot new xy plots

    (3) obtain ymin, ymax, using GetAxisScalingMode

    (4) vertical lines using plot plot

    (5) SetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_REFRESH_GRAPH, TRUE);

    Unfortunately, this does not work because the range of a chart axis is updated only after the display of the chart.

    First of all, this behavior seems a bit inconsistent for me because using for example. GetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_NUM_PLOTS, & plot_handles) returns the correct number of plots before updating the chart.

    Second, you need a suggestion of how to achieve the goal of flicker free plot xy plots so many vertical lines, covering the range complete y?

    Thank you!!


    OK... Finally!

    Now, I can confirm that this behavior is weird (I would even call it a bug...)

    Here is a workaround:

    The fundamental discovery is that the axis interval is updated if a plot is set, even if the chart is not updated. The procedure is:

    (1) SetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_REFRESH_GRAPH, FALSE);

    (2) plot new xy plots

    3) get ymin, ymax, using GetAxisScalingMode / / doesn't work here because of the CVI BUG

    (4) vertical lines using plot plot

    4A) GetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_NUM_PLOTS, & plot_handles);

    4 (b) SetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_PLOT_ZPLANE_POSITION, plot_handles - 1); These two lines are stupid here because the lines are subsequently demolished, but they update the chart axis range!

    4 c) get ymin, ymax, using GetAxisScalingMode / / now it works

    d 4) remove vertical lines

    4th) vertical plots using plot / / and now the lines have the right length

    (5) SetCtrlAttribute (Panel, graph_control, ATTR_REFRESH_GRAPH, TRUE);

    (I guess I have to change registry to eventually replace OEM version with pirate version - it still would make it impossible to activate the automatic updates).

  • Get a button to be visible only after the FLV has loaded?

    Hey everybody,

    Trying to find a solution to this issue, I found a lot of answers on the provision of a visible button after that a swf file is loaded, but not a flv. I preload an flv, although 20 sec, then it starts to play. But I have a button 'play' on the stage and he's sitting there, tempting people to hit while the bar preloader works its magic the preloading of the flv. I want the button to be visible only after the flv file has been loaded, or at least until it starts to play.
    I am a newbie to coding so please be forgiving and spell for me nice and clear. :-)

    Thank you.

  • How can I make sure that changes in a primary key (in the parent table) would also appear directly in the FOREIGN KEY in the child table?

    Forgive my question. I am very new to Oracle.

    How can I make sure that changes in the key primary supplier_id (concerning the supplier table) would also appear directly in the FOREIGN KEY (supplier_id) in the products table?

    Is that not all the primary key and FOREIGN KEY on?

    My paintings:

    I created 2 tables and connect to apply in the data base referential integrity, as I learned.

    CREATE TABLE - parent provider

    (the numeric (10) of supplier_id not null,)

    supplier_name varchar2 (50) not null,

    Contact_Name varchar2 (50).

    CONSTRAINT supplier_pk PRIMARY KEY (supplier_id)


    CREATE TABLE - child products

    (the numeric (10) of product_id not null,)

    supplier_id numeric (10) not null,

    CONSTRAINT fk_supplier

    FOREIGN KEY (supplier_id)

    REFERENCES beg (supplier_id)


    I inserted the following text:

    INSERT INTO provider

    (supplier_id, supplier_name, contact_name)


    (5000, 'Apple', 'first name');

    I expect that the supplier_id (5000) to the provider of the table also appears in the products table under key supplier_id having the same value which is 5000. But this does not happen.

    How to get there?

    Thanks in advance!


    What is a foreign key in Oracle?

    A foreign key is a way to ensure referential integrity in your Oracle database. A foreign key means that the values of a table must appear also in another table.


    What is now the right way to implement referential integrity in your Oracle database that the values of a table must also be included in another table?

    A foreign key referential integrity indeed enfore in ensuring that the value in the child table must have a corresponding parent key (otherwise you will encounter an error, as evidenced by "SomeoneElse"). However, it will never automatically insert a row in the other table.

    If you are looking for a solution that automatically inserts a record in the other table, maybe you should go for triggers:

Why is - this seems to happen after each automatic update? Cant we get 'option' to use the TAB key to navigate through the lines of address "write"?

    TAB through the fields that exist. It is the function of the TAB.

    Otherwise you could never use TAB to go out in a field for example: subject. It would create an indefinate number of fields and are unable to function as a TAB key.

    TAB does not back to THE fields,

  • Only a few Chinese characters appear as a rectangular box

    Hi all

    I use Windows 7 Enterprise SP1. When I boot my system and first of all use the browser chrome and access Hotmail /asana websites, it's corrupt fonts and

    only a few Chinese fonts for some characters (not for all) are displayed as rectangular boxes and also sometimes only for "BOLD" fonts, it is coming as rectangles.

    If I copy the Chinese text into wordpad and choose a font as SimSun, Arial Unicode it may appear correctly, but for default windows 7 police segoe UI and other fonts like Microsoft without serif, it shows rectangles for a part only of the characters. It is very annoying and a serious problem for usage.  In this case whatever settings system locale.

    Could you let us know that Microsoft has already given solution to avoid this kind of corruption

  • My Lightroom update serial number 5 appearing only on the my products page. unnecessary support chat

    I bought a license of Lightroom 5 upgrade July 25.  I got a confirmation e-mail but my serial number is displayed on the order summary page after purchase.  I tried to register the serial number several times through the page of my products, but for a reason that was not appear serial number, even if the registration process present a successful result.  In addition, the Adobe products purchased in the Adobe store must be automatically registered according to the Adobe web site.  Apparently it must have failed.  I need to reinstall Lightroom 5 but the serial number still does not show up on top of the page my products.  I just spent an very frustrating of an hour with the cat 'Live' Adobe, who has done nothing but send me in circles and repeat the same canned answers over and over again.

    I am currently on hold with "hotline", but I am not optimistic because I've been waiting for 28 minutes.  The only other option support was a link on this forum, where this post.  I hope someone from Adobe can retrieve my serial number and contact me.  Otherwise, my only other option will be to contact VISA and open a support ticket.

    OK, I was able to recover my previous system image and fortunately it seems that you can get the serial number of the help-> System Info.  I tried to save the serial number again through my products page and while he said that the registration was successful, we'll see.  At least I should be able to install LR5 on my new machine now.

    Edit:  I also just found out that the serial number is listed under my orders, but not under my products.  Weird.  In my defense, I never thought to check the history of my order because I never received a confirmation email and the order has not been listed after purchase even as late as mid-August (when I checked last.)  Very strange but it's all good now.

    Edit #2: OK now I feel stupid.  I just got an email from Naveen with a real support AND if the correct serial number.  So, I was wrong.  Live Chat process still feel incredibly long with a few responses apparently canned / automated, but, in fairness, he did get back to me.  Thank God I washed my feet today...
