Keyboard hotkeys somehow made themselves

Well, i don't know what's going on, but every time i press the L.shift key it does this }

every time i press R.shift, its this ><

apparently somehow every time i press shift what the computer sees as being pressed is L.shift+F7+[

for the right it's R.shift+,+.

i have no idea how this happened, how can i possibly fix it}? i've checked to make sure the keyboard is set on the correct languwage and all that

Function key doesn't work


Hello, if the key is broken (Won't work at all) there is no way to fix it unless you replace the keyboard. You can however look for the: ATK / KB Filter Utility for Asus machines and that will give you access to some of the hotkey functions without having to use the fn key itself. You can find that here: http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=ATK_package&os=30

Unfortunately the fn key is not part of standard bios's as far as I know for most machines so you can't remap it to another key. You might be able to switch the [fn] function around though so you don't have to press the [fn] key to use the hotkeys.

It will look something like this: http://cdn4.thetechjournal.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/action-keys-bios-as7d889we79we7r9ew5rty321u32.jpg

To get there hold [F2] whilst powering on the machine and you should see something similar to that pic. Once done save and exit.

Please bare in mind that if you do this you will only be able to us the hotkeys in windows unless it's a keyboard specific command, e.g [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [F4].

Hope that helps

My volume buttons on my compaq presario c769us are not working , is there a combination for the volume buttons


From the manual:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01114193.pdf

Hotkeys are combinations of the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and one of the function keys:
Mute and restore speaker sound. fn+home
Increase speaker sound. fn+pg up
Decrease speaker sound. fn+pg dn
To use a hotkey command on the computer keyboard, follow either of these steps:
Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hotkey command.
- or -
Press and hold down the fn key, briefly press the second key of the hotkey command, and then
release both keys at the same time.
Muting speaker sound (fn+home)
Press fn+home to mute speaker sound. Press the hotkey again to restore speaker sound.
Increasing speaker sound (fn+pg up)
Press fn+pg up to increase speaker sound. Hold down the hotkey to increase speaker sound incrementally.
Decreasing speaker sound (fn+pg dn)
Press fn+pg dn to decrease speaker sound. Hold down the hotkey to decrease speaker sound incrementally.

When I press shift to get symbols, I dont get the ones which on display on the keyboard. What should I do?


I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it somehow solved the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you

How can i disable my verr.maj. on my acer laptop?thnk you


Hi!
This problem occurs when you inadvertently switch the language of your keyboard by simultaneously holding down the left 'ctrl' key and the left 'shift' key for 3-4 seconds.
To resolve:
Press 'ctrl' on the left side simultaneously with the left 'shift' button for 3-4 seconds; this will switch your keyboard language up to the next in queue. Keep doing this until you get the desired one (i.e. english US or whichever keyboard of preference that you have selected).
If you plan on only typing with only one type of keyboard, then you can disable the above ctrl-shift hotkey sequence and avoid this problem in the future. The instructions to do this are as follows:
1. Go to: control panel --> clock, language and region --> region and language --> keyboard and language tab --> change keyboard --> advanced key setting tab
2. Select/highlight 'between input languages'
3. click 'change key sequence'
4. Under 'switch keyboard layout' select 'not assigned'.
5. click 'ok'
6. click 'ok'
Hope that helps!

My son was playing with the keyboard on my laptop and somehow turned the keys of. How do I turn them back on?


Hi,

Do you mean to say that he had turned the hotkeys ON? If so, please press the shift button five times. If you are referring that even the keyboard is nt working, please check for the internal wiring.

Regards,
HP

Shift key shuts down my computer


Someone is probably playing a prank on you. Disable the services one by one until you find the program that is assigning those programs hotkeys so programs can't run with hotkeys.
