Trying to do a restore of a system image using file history WIN 10. Every time I try this or a system reset, a screen appears which asks me to choose my keyboard layout. How do I select a choice?


in the settings or properties of the keyboard you will find a list of keyboard lay outs
one is british(english) which puts the letters in different positions to an American ( english ) keyboard
If I remember rightly , the list includes keyboards in different languages
select the one suitable for your language ( be careful between the british and american layouts ( both known as qwerty boards) as certain keys and key functions will be different
select what you want, apply and ok

Grandchildren playing on computer/keyboard and now have no sound did they turn something off?


With some multimedia keyboards, it's easy to mute or turn down the volume from the keyboard. Many Systemax systems ship with this type of keyboard. The volume controls are usually at the top of the keyboard or on the right or left side of the keyboard.

However, since there are a number of different styles of multimedia keyboards, I'm not sure which key you would need to find. Look for a key with the speaker symbol (looks like a megaphone). Also look in the bottom right corner of the computer screen for the same symbol. If there is a red circle with a line, then the mute has been enabled. Otherwise, it may be that the volume was reduced. With a mouse it's easy to change the setting; just left click on that symbol in that section of the notification bar.

In some cases, speakers do fail. So if changing the volume doesn't work, try a different set of speakers.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your keyboard or Systemax computer model if you need additional assistance.

The @ key does not work on my compaq keyboard. how do I make it work?


you may have your keyboard set to the wrong locale. UK English keyboards are different from US English - some critical keys, like @, are in different places.
In your computer settings, check keyboard setting are set appropriately. In Win7 it's in Control Panel>Clock, Language>Region>Keyboards.

Laptop key board are messd up


If you have changed the keyboard type in 'regional and language options' you can manually pull of the keys and stick them back on where they should be. It sounds like someone has done that to your keyboard so no regional setting could fix this.
Instructions for Windows Vista
Click Start and then Control Panel In Control Panel, if you are in Classic View, click on Control Panel Home (top left corner) Open Clock, Language, and Region Click on Regional and Language Options. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab and then click Change keyboards. Under Installed services, click Add. In the Add Input Language dialog box, select the keyboard layout you would like to add from the list available and click OK. The keyboard layout you added will be included in the list. To set the new layout as your default, select it from the list. Click OK to save your changes You can switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by clicking on the Language Bar button or by pressing the Alt + Shift keys

Compaq laptop can't get the ? symbol


Hi,

Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.
You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:

Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.

If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.

Also found this:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
seem to change the mapping.

Hope this helps!
