You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

I hope this helps
Cheers

How do i calculate cos 30°24'


You must first set angle unit to degree.
Press the [MODE] key a certain number of times until you get to a screen that displays Deg Rad Grad. Press number key 1 to select degree.
Once this is done you can calculate trigonometric functions. To enter angles in DMS you have a key marked with degree symbol, a quotation mark, and a double quotation mark. In what follows that key is represented as DMS.

To calculate cos(30 deg 24')
[COS] 30 [DMS] 24[DMS] [=]

If you get an error message you will have to enter the seconds even if the value is 0
[COS] 30 [DMS] 24[DMS] 0 [DMS] [=]

I changed the battery in my BMW X3, and now there is power to everything, but it won't start. I think it is a security/code issue. Any ideas?


there is a security reset procedure on most vehicles, usually has to do with turning key on and off in certain sequences for a certain time interval.I have no experience with this typ of car though. Try to google the reset/relearn procedure for this.
