Switching between green keys on keypad

I have an acer aspire 5536 and my keyboard has up to 5 characters on one key. It keeps switching to french characters and I've tried the left alt and shift buttons but that doesn't seem to be working. I know its a keyboard shortcut I keep accidentally pressing to get into this... How do I acess the other characters on the keys??

If you haven't fixed your problem yet, I had the same thing and if you look on the bottom of your screen right beside the time and date it will say ENG with either US or CMS under it. click on it and change it so it reads ENG with US that way it only uses the white letters, and symbols. The other way makes it use Fench no matter what

I have problem with Acer aspire keyboard, some keys are not working


You may accidentally have turned NumLk on which causes the keys on the right part of the keyboard to act as a keypad for entering numbers. A little padlock with the number 1 in its middle is the indicator for NumLk and it will be lit or a LED bar underneath it will be lit when NumLk is on. On the Acer Aspire One 8.9" screen model ZG5, the NumLk is toggled on/off by holding down Fn and pressing the F11 key. Also, when NumLk is on, pressing U I O gets 4 5 6 and J K L M gets 1 2 3 0. The reason for embedding the numeric keypad within the usual character keys eliminates having a separate set of keys for the keypad function resulting in a more compact keyboard that better fits with notebook computers such as the netbooks which have smaller screen sizes.

How do I turn on my green keys on my Acer Aspire One?


Not able to find a colour picture of the keyboard - But I suspect you mean the numbers that are on the following keys u,i,o,j,k,l,m
To gain access to these numbers you need to put the number lock "num lock" key on - to do that use the <FN key> together with the <F11 key> That will now change the keyboard so that numbers are displayed instead of the letters

Select your exact model and then got the document tab, to downlaod the user manual
IF there are other keys that are green on the keyboard - let me know and i can research more

Hey, I've just been having this problem. Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + FN all at the same time. I found out that I had to press them once to turn on the green keys, and then press them twice more to turn it off. I hope that works for you.
