Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I can't use my questionmark. On my key board there are all of the regular buttons bu on them they have blue symbols on them. I want to know how to deactivate the use of the secondary symbols on my keyboard.
I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy, I must hit something when I type. Anyway the fix is hitting ctrl + fn and then the right shift key twice (just the shift key twice).

When you hold ctrl+fn and click shift at the same time you are going through different modes of keyboard. Do it and then try the buttons that are not functioning the way you want them to. If not try same thing again. I think there are like 3 or 4 modes so you would not have to repeat it more often than that.

Hey guys found this on another site. Tried the first option and it works on my Gateway too
1. Near the bottom right of the screen is an icon of a keyboard. Left click and select US keyboard if it's set to French. This turns it off but it doesn't prevent it from getting switched again.
2. The permanent fix is to disable the key combination. There's two ways to do this. Right click on the keyboard icon and left click Settings. Select the "Advanced Key Settings" tab. Click the "Change Key Sequence" button and select "not assigned". Click OK a few times and you're done.
If you cannot locate the keyboard icon you can get at this through the control panel. Go to Regional and Language control panel. Select the keyboards and languages tab and click the change keyboards button. This takes you to the language settings described in step 2 above.
