SOURCE: fn keys

It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.

SOURCE: cant find the number lock key on my acer 6920 laptop

I think for your laptop the number lock key is a second function... Try holding down the function (Fn) key and pressing the F11 key, hopefully that will turn your number lock on/off.

SOURCE: LG r700 green keys wont turn off when using shift key in outlook

I was having the same problem - it was just driving me bananas. I figured it was a keyboard language, but when I checked my default it was still English (Canada) - US. I Tried the keys to switch between languages, I turned on and off the hot keys for input languages - all to no avail. FINALLY - I added a floating language bar to my desktop, and what do you think it was set at? That's right - bloody "Canadian French." I simply switched it back to "US" and problem solved. Now I just have to remember that for next time. . . . .

SOURCE: how can i make a forward slash on a mexican

On these keyboards, the non colored symbols are typed by holding down the shift key and tapping the symbol. If you want to type the colored key, then you have to hold down the Alt Gr key and tap the colored symbol key.

On the Reczone Password Safe model 595 I am not able to type the symbols associated with the number keys even when I use the "shift" key. How do I type the symbols?


Have you tried the orange button?

I mean the same way as the shift key function? Because, they are built the same with qwety keyboard. The hint is the orange printed symbols. Same as blue printed "Fn" button on PCs.

I haven't used it but it worth a try.

Cannot use shift key + number for numbers 1 through 4 and 7 through nine.Cant make any symbols(at sign,exclamation sign).I tried reinstalling keyboard driver,choosing different language,so on and so...


Hi,

You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

My number keys doesn't let me type the at sign, or any of the upper case symbols


In some notebooks/laptops, the function key needs to be pressed to use upper case symbols. Mostly, this key is named as Fn. Try using the key, may be in combination with shift key to use upper case symbols.

I dont know how to access all of the symbols that are on a key e.g. one key has a question mark, a slash and two other symbols, one is blue and the other is green


You use teh shift key and the [FN] key to access these extra sets of characters. If it is basically a circle around a symbol then press and Hold the [FN] key while pressing the key you want. If it is the ?,,{,},:," or any of the symbols on the upper part of the number keys at the top of the keyboard just press and hold the shift key while pressing the key.

A key (which one?) changes the letters all keys type


You're hitting SHIFT and CTRL -- which changes the keyboard input method, i.e., for French keyboard, or for DVORAK keyboard, or for Scandinavian keyboard.

Access CONTROL PANEL, and use REGIONAL settings to "uninstall" all keyboard-layouts that you _never_ use.
