Hi,
One thing for sure that No keyboard comes without functional keys. If that is the case then there are two solutions for this problem. Purchase a new multimedia keyboard and plug-in to your system. otherwise download and install Desktop keyboard and you can use it by using your mouse or arrow keys of the keyboard... Thank you.....

Look for a wireless icon similar to the attached picture on the keyboard, it locates usually among F1 to F12 keys, if you don't see anything similar from F1 to F12, then try looking from 1 to 9 keys. Once it's located, press and hold down the Fn key on the keyboard and press the key with the icon (i.e. wireless icon) simultaneously for a couple of seconds, this will turn on and off the wireless function of your system. Let me know if you need further help with the model number of your emachine. Good Luck.

F12 function key doesn t work


Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard.
They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12."
Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond.
Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up.
Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key.
This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work.
Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software.
If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again.
If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality.
Navigate to the link entitled "Microsoft Support: Some Function Keys do not Work Correctly." (See Below.)

Your function keys should now work properly.

I am trying to reload my operateing system w. disc that came with emachine t 5048,its not recignizing the dics,wiill read any disk but that 1???It came w. computer when i bought it. disk is perfect,no...


At power on, enter the bios (usually by tapping a function key like Tab or Del or F2) and change the boot device order to have the CD drive first. Put the disc in the disc drive. Save and continue. Now, you may get a message asking you to "press any key to boot to the CD". Touch any key, and the reload should start.

Cant install new hard drive


Usually, this issue is caused by pressing F12 multiple times to access the 1 time boot menu.  This can cause the keyboard buffer to fill up and the keyboard will not respond.  Resolution:  Press F12 ONLY one time at boot.
If this is not the issue, then the other main cause is having an INTERNET keyboard that has alternate Function Key functions (These will be listed on the front edge of the Function keys and there will be an extra key called an F-Lock) This type of keyboard has the ALTERNATE function of the F-Keys enabled by default, you need to press the F-Lock key to enable the normal F-Key function.
