Question about Computers & Internet

My mom has an Acer laptop. Apparently she has a different keyboard and on the right side letters, there is an alternate character. She thinks her cat may have walked on the keyboard but now when she types characters on the right side, she does not get the letter but the character that is in the righthand corner. what key does she use to take that function?

When you press some letters in the keyboard it writes different characters and leters


I'm not sure how to tell you to correct the problem but the same thing happened to me and really messed with my head until I found out that there are several setting for different languages. The keys apparently mean something different from our language. Go in and reset your keyboard . Some have a drop down box that will let you choose your language. I wish I could tell how to correct it but I don't know what kind of computer is. The Control panel should a place about keyboards and let you change it there.

Some letter key is not working on keyboard???


if any of the key on the keyboard is not working, you can use an alternate for time being. This is regarding ASCII. There are ASCII codes for every character on the keyboard. A - 65,B - 66........... So on a - 97, b - 98...........So on
Use these codes by pressing and holding Alt key on the keyboard. In order to type b character. Press and hold Alt key and type 66 from the numpad at the right side of the keyboard.

My acer travelmate 2410 the letters I o p j k l are typing the numbers 1 to 6 Instead


Has anyone spilled any liquid onto the keyboard?
This is a common indicator as to why the keyboard gives wrong character inputs.
If this is the problem, the keyboard will need replacing

If this is not the case try pressing the FN and NUMlock keys together

Where on laptop is the wireless key button


To turn on your wireless internet connection theres sometimes a little switch on the side of the laptop or theres a keyboard button where you need to press the "FN" button down by the CTRL button and another button usually one of the "F" keys.

If this doesnt help please respond back with the make and model of your laptop so we can help you better.


Best of luck..

Wh y do I get numbers up instead of letters on the right hand side of the keyboard


Your NumLock is probably ON.

Hold down the Fn key and look for the NUMLOCK key. It is likely in a different colour than the regular characters.

My Dell Vostro 1000 laptop keyboard (right side) keys are not typing what I type. It is like they are out of sync. Can you help? (I am currently using a different computer to type this.


Num Lk will cause the keys on the right-hand side of your keyboard to display the alternate characters printed in blue. Just press the Num Lk key--it's the fifth key from the top right corner of your keyboard--to deselect, and your problem will vanish.

FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
