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

How to enter at for email address on cf 18 toughbook


The "at" symbol also known as "@" is usually
located by pressing "Shift" and the number "2"
simultaneously.

However if you have a French Canadian keyboard
then you first have to switch back to US English,
then press "shift" and "2" and then switch back
to French so you can continue to use accents.

A little trick may be to COPY the @ symbol and
then paste it when needed.

Good Luck!

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.

My laptop keyboard hasn't been working for about 24 hours. At first, my laptop shift key seemed to be stuck because I was typing in all symbols instead of numbers like # instead of 3 or & instead of 7....


1. Boot to diags, Fn+Power see if the issue occurs in the diagnostics, If it does, you need a keyboard at a minimum. If it works normally, then it is a software setting.
2. Boot to Safe Mode F8 at boot, see if it works normally there. If not then check the regional and language settings and make sure they match the keyboard you have installed (US, UK or French Canadian 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.

Cannot get backslash (\) character to display


To get a backslash, you need to print the upper ascii character 92 (decimal). On most machines you can get upper ascii characters by holding down the Alt key and typing the decimal value on the numeric keypad. On the little IBM machine I'm typing this on, there is no numeric keypad, but if I switch on numlock (by doing shift-scroll-lock) the j-k-l keys become 1-2-3 etc. Now id I hold down Alt and type 92 (i.e.keys 9-k), this is what I get: \ Howzzat?.
