On a HP pavilion dm4, How do I use the number lock, or basically I just want to add symbols in a word doc using alt 153 ( for example). It doesnt work... Help please


If you have a desktop or a keyboard with the numeric pad, you can enter characters (accented) with an ALT key combination. If on the other hand you have a laptop and no numeric key pad, there should be an Fn key sequence (maybe Fn+F10) that locks the keyboard on the overlaid numeric pad. Better still, display the characters table and pop it open whenever you need a special character.

Details of what everything means on my keyboard


Each key represents a character. Many of the keys have a 2nd output if you hold the shift key. You can also find hidden characters if you hold alt and press some of the numbers on the number pad.

F1 - F12 do special things depending on what program is open.

How do I get swedish letters on an asus keyboard?


You get special characters by using alt codes. That is, you press and hold the "alt" key while entering a 4-digit code using the numeric keypad (or, on a laptop, the keys that serve as a numeric keypad). When you release the alt key the special character appears at the cursor location. This page lists the characters and corresponding code.

If you are using an application like Microsoft Word, there may be an "insert special character" command available. Then you can pick the character from a table instead.

Dear Sir , If you start copying a Class 10 / 11


I understand the pain and how difficult it is to work on a science document!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way if you are using the office suite applications such as Word 2007 or word 2010, you can insert the symbols easily.
To insert a symbol or special character into your document, follow these steps in Word 2007:
1. Position the cursor where you would like to insert the symbol or character
2. Open the Insert ribbon
3. Click Symbol in the Symbol section
4. A menu will appear with a small selection of symbols
5. If you don't see the symbol or character you'd like to insert, click More Symbols
6. Use the controls to select between symbols and special characters. Additional tools on the symbols tab will help you expand or narrow your selection
7. When you find your symbol or special character, click it and then click Insert
8. When you're done, click Close
The symbol or special character will appear at the appropriate place in your document.
Hope this helps!!!

Well, I am helpless regarding developing a keyboard with all those scientific symbols,.LOL

A better way to enter special symbols in Windows applications (such as Word), is to take advantage of the symbols in the fonts provided by Windows. For example, in Word, use the following steps:
  1. Click on "Insert" (in the menu at the top of the page)
  2. From the drop-down menu, select "Symbol". A chart of special symbols will appear
  3. From the chart, you can select a symbol to insert into your document by highlighting the symbol, and clicking on the word "Insert" at the bottom of the chart.

Locked key pad


How to Enter Unlock Codes on Motorola phones:
Switch ON your phone with a not allowed SIM Card,
Phone should show "Enter Special or Subsidy Code",
Enter unlock code
Your phone is now unlocked.
WARNING: if any of these messages appear :
- "Contact Service Provider"
- or "Tamper Alter"
- or "Wait Before Enter Special Code"
- or "Contact Service'
It's because you or somebody else has already entered too many wrong codes. You just have to leave the phone ON on the error message and after 1hr - 8hrs the message "Enter Subsity Password " will appear again!
Note: If your phone is on a 3G network enter **057*, then another window will appear to enter the unlock code.
