Question about Computers & Internet
HP Pavillion using 8.1, accidently shut my keyboard off while I was making adjustments to the narrator settings and cannot get it turned back on.
See if there is an off/on switch if it is wireless. check if the drivers are installed. if you have the drivers installed and it is turned on it may be broken

Sorry your problem got left in the que for a while, but Lee apparently wasn't familiar with that keyboard. You do have an extra key near the start button that activates the Tags and other coloured symbols while in french or multi language mode. Simply use it like a shift key.
If you're not using the HP to type in french and don't require the accents you can change the setting in windows to tell the computer that your keyboard is a US english keyboard which will reassign all the keycodes to the "normal" locations by english speaking standards.
To do so, open your control panel, click on the classic mode link if it's not already in classic mode(20+ icons). Then click on the regional settings icon. Depending on wether you have Vista or XP the panel varies slightly XP has a keyboards tab, Vista has a Input Devices tab. Either way go to that tab and click the button to adjust input devices, on the page that pops up you will see a list of available, installed keyboards. If US english isn't listed click the ADD button find it in the list and add it.
If you only type in english, remove all other keyboards. If you use french as well, remove all but the canadian french/canadian multilingual depending which you have(if you don't know follow instructions below to find out). Then OK out of the window. OK the regional settings window and close the control panel. If you only select US english you're done, if you left French as an option you will see a small blue icon to the left of the clock, you can click on it at any time to switch between your installed keyboard modes.
Hope this Helps FixYa!
Model info for your product can be found at www.hp.com click Support & Drivers, then select the Knowledgebase button on the next screen and type in your full model number or allow the automated link to check your model online. When it launches your product page select Product Specifications from the long list in the middle and if it brings up a second list select the same.
You can now scroll down the specs and your keyboard will be listed as either Canadian English/French/Multiligual, all three have some variation of the keys you described.
