Check to make sure your numlock is off. otherwise check your keyboard language and make sure its set to US. on windows this is usually a little symbol located in the bottom right hand of your desktop.

SOURCE: Access BIOS

Try to clear your CMOS first before entering the BIOS. Refer to your mainboard manual on how to do this. If you have no manual, you can usually find the CMOS key near your mainboard's battery. Remove the jumper cap (the black thing connecting two pins). Be sure to remember which pins it connects. Using a flathead screwdriver, ground the bare pins together by having all of them touch the side of the screwdriver. Reattach the jumper cap to its original position. Boot the computer and access the configuration settings.

SOURCE: I have an acer aspire

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

When trying to type a capital K is is not typing that but a weird symbol. This just started happening.


The key combination you're referring to probably switched your keyboard layout.
For examply, I use Dvorak to type, but to switch over to regualar QWERTY, my family presses Alt+Shift.
Note, that's because I have it set up that way. Your combination might be different.
Try this:
Control Panel --> Search "languages" --> Click "Change keyboards or other input methods" --> Click the button that says "Change keyboards"
If you see anything other than plan "US" or "English" under "Installed Services", remove it.

Keyboard will not work


Try this and see if this works for you. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).
Let me know if this works for you, if not let me know.
