Verify if multiple calc works if you launch it from windows, without using the hot-key. if that does not work, its a windows issue - might need a full repair / install. If windows is able to launch it - you can fix the issue by reinstalling any drivers for your kbd.

I have a Dell wireless keyboard with a Calculator-specific function key. It is no longer working after I had some repair work to remove a vicious virus. How can I restore the calculator key?

Try this. Go to the Start menu by clicking Start (Windows XP) or clicking the Windows icon in the bottom left of your screen (Windows 7). In the start menu, click Control Panel.
Inside the Control Panel, double click Device Manager.
Once you are in the Device Manager window, click the Plus symbol next to where it says Universal Serial Bus Devices. In the list of things that comes up, you should see one that says USB Keyboard or Wireless Keyboard, or something to that effect. Right click on that, then click Uninstall.
A new window will pop up. In that window, click Next 2 times. Then, click Finish.
Now, unplug the USB wireless receiver. Wait a few seconds, then plug the USB wireless receiver back in. When you plug it back in, it will act like it is the first time it is plugged in, and will reset all your settings. Give it a minute or two.
Hopefully, you can press the Calculator button and it should work. Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I turn the keyboard mouse off. I only wish to use a wireless mouse. Is there a hotkey


The hotkey depends on the kind of computer that you are using. It's just a two combination key. It should be FN + _____. Try FN + F7 or FN + F9.. It could have been very helpful if you have provided fixya with the model of your laptop so that I can give the exact key. Anyway, try to look at the F1....F12 keys. It should be there. You can see FN key in between CTRL and the window sign. While function keys are on the upper most part of your laptop.

I hope this helps.

My old keyboard had a button I just pushed for the calculator function. This new keyboard does not have that. How do I get to the calculator with this keyboard?

Some keyboards are not made with shortcut keys. This is one of them. You may be able to use a program to use a key combination to open it.
