Question about Keyboards & Mice

Two keyboard keys seem to have been transposed

Have just purchased a new Acer computer. When I press the "at" (@) key on the included keyboard, inverted commas(") appear instead. When I press the "inverted commas" (") key, @ appears instead. Is there an easy way for me to assign the correct values to these keys (and any others, if I come across them)?

Many thanks

    Thank you so much! It makes a change to have a computer problem that is so easily resolved (if you know how....!).



    Cheers again.

Yes when going through the setting up procedure for your new computer you should have installed the British keyboard instead of the US one.

Doing the above will correct your problem.

Hi Carol,

It seems that the function key (Fn) on the bottom left of the keyboard is stuck or jam. Try hitting the key multiple times or raise it with your fingers. Then try to press I and O again. Below the is image of the key you need to press and clear the jam from. You can also pat the keyboard/ laptop from at the bottom in case the jam wont clear by pressing the key.

Fig 2 : The the shown below have multiple icon, those are activated by pressing Fn (function key)

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.


Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

Certain keys on the Gyration GC15CK keyboard have stopped working


If this is hardware problem, it'd be hard to repair. I don't mean it's not repairable, but what i mean is i don't recommend since repairing a keyboard and purchasing a new item will cost you more or less the same.
Well try this, Press Fn + Numlock (simultaneously on both the keys) on the keyboard and check if it helps or not [press once and then type the malfunction keys, if not press twice or thrice]. Most keyboard with Fn key's functions can be deactivated or activated with this key combination.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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.
