    on my number keys and some of the letter keys there are green symbols above them.. all of my keys seem to be working normally except for the question mark key and the two keys to the left of it. these keys are showing the green symbol when i type them instead of the normal question mark, etc.



    any solutions??

  • Brian Ebeling May 11, 2010

    those blue symbols are functions for your laptop. is the question mark key the only problem key? want to make sure there isn't another problem before deactivating your system keys. would recomend against it BUT can do it, just wanna make sure the problem is solved first, ya know.

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.

Keyboard buttons problems


The only solution is to replace the complete keyboard, there is a ribbon wire that sometimes cracks causing some of the keys to malfunction and it plugs into the motherboard. It would be a good idea to plug external keyboard to make sure there is no secondary issues.

The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

This should solve your problem. Just turn off the F-Lock Mode.
Hope this helps if it does please leave a comment or a vote.

Some keyboard letters type the wrong letter


Did you check the numlock button ?

Laptops suffer from this button since it changes the keys 7890uiopjkl:m>? to correspond to the regular keypad on regular desktop's keyboard.
Turning the numlock off will bring the keyboard to it's regular state.

Another scenario may be if you have changed your keyboard's language at the windows control panel.

My touch pad thing with play, pause, volume, stop etc. has stopped working. The blue lights on them arn't showing up either. Can anybody help please?


There is most proably a button on your keyboard that turns your touchpad on and off. Hunt around for that. Look for keys that have blue writing on the foward edge of the keys these usually indicate a secondary function for that key. You have to press the key that turn this secondary function on and off and then look for a key with blue writing that may have to do with your touchpad

SHIFT LOCKED ON


There should be a function key that is a light blue on the lower left. Hold that down and hit the NUM lock key at the upper right.

What happened is that you turned the numlock on just like on a regular keyboard but on a laptop, its a secondary function key where the letters double as numbers when the function numlock is turned on.

give it a try and let me know.
Good luck
