Where Did The @ Go?

There is the possibility that the language setting on the computer has been changed to “The United Kingdom” or came that way through a software update. In either case, the fix is simple and will require a reboot when finished. Go to the control panel and choose Regional and Language Settings. If you are in the States and need the English-United States version of the keyboard, then go through all the tabs and settings and change or add, English-United States to all the settings and locations. On the far tab to the right, make sure to check the boxes for copying the settings to all users. When you click on the administrative tab and change location, you will be prompted to reboot when finished.

How do I adjust contrast/brightness?


Look on the keyboard for a function key symbol. It'll probably be blue or orange or some other color that is different from the color of the keys on the keyboard. Then look for a similarly colored keys that have a brightness and/or contrast keys with up and down arrows. When you press & hold the first key I mentioned with one of the second key (up or down) the brightness of the screen will increase and decrease accordingly.

Shift key and symbols dont match


You can change the keyboard layout to match the one you have.

In your start box, select run and type "intl.cpl" (without quotes).

Under the formats tab, change the format. try the ones with English (" ") and then click apply.
To see the format selected,open the On-screen keyboard ( type "osk.exe" in run) and hold shift to view the symbols.
Try different formats until you find something that matches the phisical keyboard layout.

+keyboard with Acer AspireE500-A970. How do I access the Euro symbol (lower case with Number 4) on the keyboard? Arthur


To type the Euro sign in Windows, you press the alt key+0128. As for the Sterling pound symbol, you can type it by pressing the alt key+0163. You can have a look at this site where it lists ways to type different currency symbols:
http://www.fonts.com/fontent/fontent_home.asp?nCo=AFMT&con=fyti_currency

Please note that you have to type the 4-digit code on the numeric keypad (do not use the normal number keys) while holding down the Alt key.

Hope this helps.

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

The"u" key is displaying "4" when it is pressed


Sounds like you have turned on the NUM LOCK on the laptop keyboard. If you look closely you will see the numbers on those keys (maybe in a different colour).

You need to turn off NUM LOCK again. On the laptop I'm looking at, this is done by pressing Fn and END together, but the key should be marked with NUM LOCK as well.

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.
