I am sure its a key combination that you have configured on some other supporting software. For an example, Like the Soundblaster studio and its scout mode.

Remove conncetion from the CPU and connect it again. or
Otherwise you need to try with another shift button and try it.
It might work.

Hope this helped.

How do I get the question mark punctuation to work...

When you were typing something you probably hit the left shift key along with ctrl. Hold down the left shift and ctrl for about 2-4 seconds and you should get your question mark back.

To make it so it never happens again, go to control panel / region and language / keyboards and languages / change keyboards. Remove every language except for English (us) or whatever region you want to use. Before you accept verify that your keyboard is on your preferred language before you do this. check and make sure you are getting the proper slash when you push slash, to change it if you're not getting the slash use the (left ctrl + left shift for 3-4 seconds) if that doesn't work then try alt and left shift.

Thank you for using fixya.

Forward slash or / is located beside the right shift key. It's in between period or . and the shift key.

I cannot figure out how to get the forward slash key

The forward slash key is next to the right shift key and works by hitting the key. A shift key will give you a "?" mark.

How do I type question mark and slash on this keyborad

Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.

Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.

Want to do backward slash; the key only performs # and no slash. also want @ to appear when I use the key showing that sign (currently use the " sign to get it)

The back Slash would be above the ENTER key and the @ sign can be accessed by holding SHIFT and pressing number "2"

In case you are not able to get the desired keys normally. It is possible that there may be something stuck between the keys. I would suggest you to kindly remove the keys and clean the base.

Keyboard typing capital e instead of question mark

Control Panel > Regional and Language Options, Languages tab, and the Details button under Text Services and Input languages. Make sure it's set correctly, usually US English
