How do you turn the sound up and down?


Hi Patricia,

What is the make/model of your laptop and what operating system are you using?
First is to look at your keyboard. All of your keys will have your main characters assigned to each key in bold, white letters, but some may have other characters or symbols in a different color.

This is a good example from a Dell keyboard where you have the volume keys above the numbers 7, 8, and 9 on the very top row (mute/volume down/volume up respectively). It's easy to see taht you simply hit these keys to mute, lower or raise your volume...very straight forward.

You also see that this keyboard has some smaller blue characters on the top row, set as the Function Keys. To access these you first hold the "Fn" key on the very bottom left of the keyboard (between Ctrl and the Windows key) and then press the top row to access the related function. I only point this out as some laptops have the Volume Up/Down set as such, where you will have to hold down and alternate key first (usually the same color) and then press or hold down that second key to activate it.

Good luck!

How do I access the blue letters on keys?


Try holding the Alt or Ctrl key down, if not then look for a Function key or a blue key (not F1 -> F12)
Good Luck,

I am looking for the number lock key on my gateway computer


The Number Lock function is accessed by pressing and holding the blue "Fn" located at the bottom left of the keyboard and the key with a "padlock graphic" with a number "1" on it. Release both keys and number lock is activated. Press the same key sequence again to shut it off.

The Number Lock function and graphic is shown at the top of page 19 of the "Gateway Hardware Reference Manual" and is presented in the link for easy access.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks.

How to unlock keypad of q mobile e900


Try this.
It stumped myself and some true experts once. We were having problems with the keyboard in a darkened room.
There is a Function ( "F" or "FN") key on the lower left of the keyboard. It's labeling is often blue in color. In low light conditions, you cannot see the blue coloring. It is used to turn a section of the keyboard into a calculator. That section will have dark blue numbers written on the keys that change function. For example the K may have a dark blue number 2 written on it. In other words, When you type the Alphabet you come up with some numbers substituted for letters and not all of the keys may function.
IN YOUR CASE PUSH THE FUNCTION KEY DOWN AND WHILE HOLDING IT DOWN PUSH THE KEY FOR THE CALCULATOR. IT SHOULD THEN RELEASE YOUR KEYBOARD FOR NORMAL USE. Hope this helps you.

Best Regards,
Mark

When there are 3 characters on a key how do I access the 3rd key


Sometimes these 'third' characters on the keyboard are in blue.
You should find that you have a Function (Fn) key on your keyboard.
Keep the Fn key pressed down whilst tapping the key/s with the third character.

How do I shift to the blue key functions on the keyboard


I've run into this a lot myself and personally find it annoying more than useful. While typing, your punctuation keys suddenly switch to their french functions. By defaul, Vista assigns a keyboard shortcut fo changing input languages.

This shortcut is ctrl+shift - a very easy combination to press by mistake. To solve this problem, just press crtl+shift until you're back to english. You can change this shortcut or disable it all together.

Open the control panel then click "change keyboards or other input methods" under "clock, language and region". In the window that pops up, click "change keyboards..." then select the "advanced key settings" tab. This is where you can edit and disable language related shortcuts. To change one, click on the profile and then click "change key sequence". Under "switch keyboard layout", select "unassigned" to disable that shortcut.

The keyboard on laptop is locked.


Are any of the keys stuck down?

Does it do this when you reboot the machine e.g. can you press F2 or Del to go into setup?

Also are you familiar with the 2nd function keys onthe laptop (usually defined in blue on the key) to access these you usually press a "Fn" button to activate the blue part. Maybe you activated a keyboard lock by accident. If you have the manual maybe check this or call dell support as previously mentioned.

Sounds like your num lock has been toggled on by mistake. Look for a key that says NmLK. It will be in the same color blue. That key may also be the scroll lock key(ScrLk) that should solve your problem.


Thanks
