My keyboard on my Mini 9 Netbook started having problems so Dell replaced it with a new one.
I then noticed that the new keyboard had a slightly different feel to it and when I i compared the two I found many changes!!!
It seems that this is a new keyboard called the (US-INTL) keyboard
Oh great now I have to relearn typing on this one.. lol it was strange enough the previous time! But hey… I must be adaptable shouldn't I?
Here are the two keyboards:
The OLD one:
The NEW one:
You will notice that some keys do not work!!! like the ~ for example. If you replace the standard US keyboard with the US-International keyboard, you have to follow this process to get the Mini9 to recognize it properly:
1.Shut down the Mini.
2.Disconnect the AC adapter.
3.Hold down the Fn and K keys.
4.Reconnect the AC adapter
5.Release the keys.
6.Now boot and you should be fine.
