    I have an HP Workstation. My keyboard requires that I hit the spacebar after the single or double quotation key in order for the character to show. Can this behavior be altered?

Sticky keys can sometimes be fixed by hitting right shift key 10 times quickly (I'm not lying!!), and or the culprit key (x) the same way. Try that and if it doesn't work, reboot and type. If it continues, please try another keyboard.

Letter between c and b wont work! its the paste code key also and I dont recall using it to paste anything Whmat's your problem?


Of course, it wont work because you used a wrong short cut key. The correct short cut command for copying is press the control C simultaneously then for pasting it, it should control V simultaneously. Try it again using the right short cut command. Good luck!

HOW TO GET MY LAPTOP TO STOP USING THE PINK ALTCAR


I found this on another website and it worked for me. Good luck.

Okay, I know this is an old question but when i searched for the same problem recently, it was the nearest I could find. So in case others are having the same problem:

The Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. The alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

Water Damage


Microsoft's keyboards are notoriously susceptible to this -- it seems like sneezing on them will damage them. I went through several of these keyboards, even attempting careful repair, before hanging it up. Not good news, I'm afraid -- I suggest Logitech products which my students can't even break.

SCREEN TURNED TO LEFT WHEN I HIT KEYBOARD WITH BOOK COVER


1. If you right click on the desktop and look at graphics properties, or something similar to that, then you should get a menu for your display adapter control panel. Usually the screen rotation is right there. Sometimes it's as easy as a CTRL + arrow key combination, but I'd rather see you adjust it from a menu.

2. Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees (If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

3. If you have the intel video chipset, I believe pressing CTRL+ALT+ one of the arrow keys should fix your problem.

I think it was ctrl+alt+right, but if that doesn't work, try the other three arrow keys.

However, if that doesn't work (especially if you do not have intel video), then right click on your desktop, go to properties, and go to the advanced tab. There you should find some setting that will allow you to reverse the rotation.

Keyboard not working


On another thread i found the solution:

[Ctrl]-[Alt]-[F12] (must use the left [Ctrl]-[Alt] keys, not the right)
Push the Connect button beneath the keyboard, then the Connect button on the USB Receiver, then the [Esc] key on the keyboard.

This will unlock the security encryption on the keyboard. You may need to reconnect the mouse afterward too.
