Hey this happened to me too. Then I realized that the number lock was on which makes a combination of letters and numbers. Is it that U makes a 4. I makes 5. O makes 6. J makes 1. M makes 0. K makes 2. And L makes 3. If so hold the Fn button and then F11.

Some of the keys are not functioning properly they are typing numbers instead of letters and the space bar is also typing a number? Please help!!


There is probably a function button on your keyboard. Pressing that button should fix the problem. It might be labeled Fn. (Look near the bottom left of the keyboard.) Best Wishes!

Hye mr expert...Here i have some question about my samsung netbook n220 series. For your info...actually this problem never happen before.The problem is some of my key not working & some of my key...


Hi,

The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My Brand new acer netbook has a keyboard problem. The numbers on top only works until the number 9 the number 0 types / and then the blue numbers on the letters are working but the letters are not. Please...


That is because the laptop has been set up using the Fn keys.
Consult your instruction manual refarding the Function Key settings after rebooting the laptop if it is still a problem.

The product key attached to netbook -- usseless


That is the key for WINDOWS and NOT office


Giving out a serial number for any software is not allowed on FixYa.

It would be looked upon as software piracy.

Experts found giving these types of number would be subject to account termination.

You should contact MICROSOFT

I am sorry you did not find the information you needed but I am sure you can understand the reasons

If that is the incorrect link you can select your country HERE

Anti Piracy laws are getting tougher all the time whilst at the same time many microsoft prices are actually getting lower..
For peace of mind GO LEGAL

Unable to access email account on acer net book . i have a laptop running blueyonder broadband,when i try to connect my netbook to my outlook express email account i get unable to access the mail server.


Hi

This sounds like your user account settings are not correct and need to be input via the account management section to look like the following:

  • Customer Email format - user.name@blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing Mail Server - smtp.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing server type - SMTP
  • Incoming mail server - pop3.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Incoming server type - POP3
  • Password - for example, Rich4rd1

  • Thanks

    Hotmail - slow for text to appear and missing text


    Sounds like your Hotmail account may have been hacked and/or a keylogger software may be intercepting your keystrokes.I would change the account or stop using it.
