I don't mean to make it seem like you don't know what you are doing, but usually the most simple of things are overlooked. Did you try holding down the left (or right) shift key, and then clicking the ?/ button?

if that doesn't work, then perhaps your keyboard settings in windows is not set to the correct language. if that is the case, let me know what version of windows you are using, and I'll guide you through how to change the default keyboard language setting.

    I just looked at my own answer, and realised that you had typed the ? already in your question. Answered that way to fast.. What exactly are you refering to then?

    Hi,



    Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.

    You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:



    Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.



    If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.



    Also found this:



    Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
    Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
    choose Remove.

    If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
    to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
    and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
    seem to change the mapping.



    Hope this helps!

    Try holding down the fn button and then hitting that key.. Or holding down shift-fn and that key...



    Does that work?

    Found this:



    "Ctrl+fn+right Shift twice, meaning Ctrl+fn+right Shift then let go of Shift while still holding Ctrl and fn, then press Shift again"



    maybe that will work?

My HP Compaq Presario CQ50-130US PC Notebook won't turn on. It just flashes on the front where the lightning bolt symbol is. It was running fine an hour ago.


Two probable problems the screen or the motherboard, if you have some technical skills you can open the laptop and figure out where the problem is using a multimeter. If you are not very good with computers the best thing you can do is to take it to the service center.

check your access point (wifi gateway) this is definitely not a problem in your laptop.

You can test it by doing a trace route to see where is the problem (command prompt while connected to wifi)

The best way is to double click the windows wireless symbol by the clock and click preferences on the left. Open the Networks tab and the first option is a check box to use windows for wireless, check the box and click apply. Once again double click the wireless symbol and select your network.
