Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Why do I get the ? symbol instead of '/' when entering data?

Hi I have an HP DV600 (canadian version)

My keyboard has three sets of symbols on them; letters, stuff that's in boxes, that i can use when I hit the function key. e.g. FN and F7 has a little brightness symbol and then a set of blue symbols e.g. the '/' key has an é symbol, the '6' key has a question mark etc. When i'm using microsoft office 2007, i don't know what the hell i hit, but my keyboard gets stuck in the third mode and my "/" key becomes the é symbol. I enter alot of data for school, and this is really annoying, the only way I can figure to get out of this mode is by closing the program. Any help here would be great

The euro symbol is under the 5, how do i type this?


Hello,

The keyboard shortcut for the € symbol is Alt Gr + 5. However if this does not work, you may also enter the following key combination : Alt+0128.

You have to maintain the Alt key pressed while entering the 0128 code.

Hope this helps you.

Cant find @ symbol tried shift and alt and number 2.bought in canada im now in uk


Being Canadian I can assure you that the @ symbol is produced by holding down the shift key and pressing the number 2. This keyboard may have a different setup, or you may need to change your language settings on your computer from Start>Control Panel.
Alternatively, you can open a virtual keyboard from Start>Programs>accessories>accessibilty>virtual keyboard

Hp mini keyboard shift key 2 does not type @


it has to do with your keyboard setting, currently you are set to the united kingdom keyboard layout, you will need to change this to Unite States settings assuming that you got vista, you will need to do the following

goto control panel
click on regional and language option (there will be a pop up)
click on the keyboard and languages tab
click on the change keyboard button (another pop up will appear)
click on add
and add the United States Keyboard
change the keyboard setting on the upper drop down menu to United States, and then click ok.....this should solve your problem.

Logitech cordless desktop mx 3200 laser keyboard - french characters


Its not the keyboard fault but your operating system. I'm going to assume you live in Canada and when you had setup the computer for the first time you had selected Canada has country you live in instead of the United States (default) If you notice on your desktop or taskbar there will be a keyboard logo. Click it and select US 101 keyboard (United states). You get the french symbols because microsoft thinks because you live in Canada you must be french canadian.... stupid eh! They have it selected to mulitlingual Canadian. Select the US English as default and you shouldn't get those french symbols when you really want the shift or question mark key.

I live in Canada and I see looks of people who ask me the same question all the time.

Hope this helps!
