I can't add a name to a department key on a Casio TE-2200 cash registetr


Make sure you are using the text layout in the manual if the text is not inputting correctly. Also, don't forget to use the double zero button when changing between text input and placement to the keyboard.

Case logic keyboard, no soft ware with key board,


u most likely got US layout printed on your keyboard and UK keyboard set in your operating system (OS). U have to change the language/keyboard layout to EN (US) if u want the keyboard to work as it shows. Might be that u have to install this language from your widows CD as if u not choose more languages when installing OS, it will only install the one that is predefined. U can find this setting in control panel >>>regional and language options>> languages>> input language>> click on details and it will show u all options available. On top is default input language, under that is window with all languages u can chose, if there is EN (US), cool, if not u have to add a language. when EN (US) will show in that window jobs almost done. If u will find any other services that u don't need (CZ, PL,FR etc.) remove them! Than u have to chose if u want to change the default layout. If u want to have everything as keyb. shows since OS starts u have to change default to EN (US). And that's all.. Option 2 is that u will keep EN (UK) as def and US as "spare input" and only by pressing hotkey alt+shift easily change the temporally layout whenever u want. just when u decide for option 2 ensure that OS will show language bar on taskbar.U can set this by clicking on right mouse button in taskbar area chose toolbars and thick language bar. U will see always EN as the mark for input they are the same for us and uk, but by clicking on it it will show u details quick and easy.. Or there is also a option 3.. u can just find @ under ". They are just swap over and u don't have to change anything. but I'm sure if u take option 3 that u will find more things that u will not be to able to find on US keyb. with UK input on OS.

Laptop key board are messd up


If you have changed the keyboard type in 'regional and language options' you can manually pull of the keys and stick them back on where they should be. It sounds like someone has done that to your keyboard so no regional setting could fix this.

My husband has acer 4520 cant get question mark..when presses ? key he will get E or e


Oh this is a returning issue with my Canadian users. The keyboard is french, that is the one with the E letter things at the place you normally have the question mark. It is indeed a keyboard layout but it gets randomly selected. Saw this problem only on VISTA so I will describe how to do it in Vista.

Go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages, Change Keyboards. Here you will see all keyboard layouts installed. Make sure you remove any that you do not need or if you see the french one even, remove that by selecting the one causing you problem 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 change the mapping.

If the above solution for whatever reason does not work, just push Shift and Ctrl at the same time, hold it pushed for about 5-10 seconds and let go at the same time. You have to be in the active window (the application in which you tried to type and it gave you E-s instead of ?-s) for this to work. But please try my first suggestion first with the keyboard layouts because I am confident that is your problem.

Please rate if this solution was helpfull. :)

On my Acer Aspire 5670 keyboard layout the 'shift 2' key gives me quotation marks (") instead of the 'at' (@) symbol which is printed on the key...any idea how I can change this?


Yes, go to the Control Panel and then to "Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options", from there choose "Regional and Language Options" click on the Languages tab, click on the Details button and finally on the Add button within the window, choose English (United States) as Input Language (or the language you are comfortable with), check the button on Keyboard layout/IME: and click on US.
Finally click OK on that window, then on the Text Services window (the one you are now), choose English (United States) (or the language you chose), and US as layout. click OK and restart Windows.
