Hi, Thnks for this online service that looks very helpful.
I encountered this problem with my acer keyboard since a couple of days back.
The RHS keys when used, do not display the desired character, but the alternate numeric character available on the same key.
Eg. Pressing I gives 6, pressing O gives 5. These numeric characters are marked in blue and appear only the RHS on the laptop. Please advice.
Have I by mistake activated a built-in calcy or something? tnx

Re: FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS
That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have an Acer lap top and there is an Fn (function key) Icon on the <i and the i> keys that mimic a sun device. If you hold down the Fn key and tap the I> key down over on the right sideof the machine, then those taps should brighten the screen. Holding down the Fn key (left side) and tapping the <i key will dim the screen.
look along the "F" key row for the NumLk or picture of the number 1 in a square. then hold down the Fn key on the lower left of the board. press the "F" key that corresponds to it and this will disable it.
I'd say unplug the keyboard, boot the computer without the keyboard, then use the windows key to shut it down, then plug it in and turn it back on, if it continues to do the same thing you can look for a secondary program running that handles the keyboard and see if it has a configuration option. If none of these things seem helpful, look in the bios, see if there is something funky in there that handles keyboard functions. If all else fails, purchase a cheezy keyboard from best buy and try that, if it works properly then u know it's the keyboard, if it doesn't, return the entire system as it could be a malfunction with the "bios" basic input output system that is not translating information properly.
if using XP go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager>look down list for keyboard, click '+' sign and highlight your keyboard and right click and select uninstall.
Restart the notebook and the keyboard will be installed automatically along with the drivers and should set it back to default.
