Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
if you want a question mark, you do shift + / key
but on my keyboard it shows this key é
which i assume is french, i also wanna type the
double quotation, i get `
left angle bracket i get '
right angle bracker i get .
in other words i am not gettin gthey key i want
i tried fn +f11, didn work
This is a problem I haven’t stumbled on before and it bugged
me so I have a suggestion.
- Open the Control Panel (generally on the Start menu)
- Open the Regional and Language folder
- Click on Languages tab
- Click on Details
See if the keyboard layout is set to ‘US.’
Now, what I don’t seem to find is how to choose something different without actually changing ‘Language’ itself.
Win ‘Help’ gave this result when searching on “changing keyboard language:”
“You can switch to a different keyboard layout or enter text in other languages without changing keyboards. However, the key labels may no longer match the characters you are entering. Use Regional and Language Options in Control Panel for changing languages and keyboard layouts.”
If this does or doesn't work, please post back as it might help others either do what you want to do or avoid paying any attention to me <grin>

Sounds like a Frenck keyboard, evel things to type on.
try goin into settings and changeing the keyboard language to english
if that dosn't work get tipex find out what each key dose and change it XD
or a better sugestion, I assume that your keyboard has a C type jack and is
going into a purpel port on the back of your computer? what you could try doing
is getting a normal 2.0USB keyboard.
That should solve your probelem as the drivers should be installed into the
Id recomend a "Genius" -cheapest option
or a "Logitec" -a bit more expensive but still good value and way better
