The only solution to this problem is go to your control panel and set the keyboard layout correctly as per your choice. just configure your keyboard and check whether the settings are working correctly. if yours is a multimedia keyboard then try to reinstall the drivers if possible.

Keypad seizing..when ever i want to type,some of the keypad hang and i need to hit the letters several times.


It seems that keyboard has started to malfunction.. it happens after some time.. If possible replace the keyboard.. Get a new one from the marke.

In the mean time you can try cleaning the keyboard once, so that if dust on any other dirt is affecting the performance, you can overcome that..

Use a blower to clean that..

What key stroke functions do I use for the


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Regional and Language Settings

Switch to use the "US English" keyboard,
instead of the "French" keyboard.

Or, if your keyboard has an 'ALT(ternate) GRA(phic)' key, hold that key down, press the '?' key, and a '?' should be displayed.

I cannot get a question mark, the upper case E with a grave (green) on keyboard appears


When you get that it usually means the language setting for the keyboard has changed.

The standard key markings are valid for most english language settings. US is the default. To change this go to start - settings - control panel. Then look for Regional and language settings. Click on that and then in the window that open there are three tabs along the top. The middle one should say language, click on that one. In the Text Languages and input options area click on the Detail button. A new window opens. At the top it shows your language. And in the box under it will show your lnaguage and installed keyboard layout. So if I were using Canadian English and the US keyboard then the keys will function as marked. To change the keyboard language click the add button, then select your language and then the keyboard layout. When you click ok it goes back to the previous window but now will show the original setup and the new one you just made. Just remove the original and apply and close everything and your keyboard will now produce the correct characters.

Keyboard problem


You just need a new keyboard - those are easy to come by check ebay.com and search for C640 keyboard. New ones should only be about $30-$40.

To remove the keyboard you just remove all the screws on the bottom of the laptop that are marked with the letter "K" then carefully pop the keyboard up.

Let us know if you need further help!

Several keys do not work


Throw it away and buy a new one. These things are designed to be thrown away when they break. Im sorry I could not help you further but the problem is that it would cost more to repair the keyboard then buying a new one. These days all keyboards are made of cheap plastic and rubber. In the old days they were made of hard plastic and metal springs. The days of indestructible keyboards are over.

Thanks for reading!
