Question about ASUS Laptop Keyboard for Asus Eee PC

1 Answer

Key symbols on Eee netbook do not correlate to text on screen

Various symbols marked on my Eee netbook keyboard do not correspond to the symbol they produce on the screen. (e.g. Shift-3 should be £ but appears as #)

I have already checked that the language is set to English-UK.

Please advise how to remedy this problem. Thank you.

It is either a software issue or you have the wrong keyboard installed on your laptop.

When texting how to inter mix letters with numbers?


When you are on the letters virtual keyboard and want to enter a number or a symbol, tap on the box marked '123' or '123Sym'. That brings up the numbers+symbols virtual keyboard. After entering the number(s) or symbol(s), tap on the box marked 'ABC'. That will bring back the letters virtual keyboard.

Brighten lcd screen


OK, you are part right. The Fn key on most laptops is written in BLUE. This corresponds to the BLUE legends on various keys on the keyboard. MOST laptops have a pair of generic symbols for the screen brightness up and down . The brightness UP is a blue square (rectangle) with a large asterisk inside. The brightness DOWN is the same except it has a small asterisk inside. You will usually find these two keys as a secondary function of a function key.

Example: On my ACER netbook Fn+F6 = brightness UP and Fn+F5 = brightness DOWN

Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.

Where did you buy your Netbook?
What language or locality have you chosen for your system?
US keyboards have @ on the shift 2 key
Various other keyboards have " for shift 2 - these include various European and Latin American layouts. You need to specify a locale that matches your hardware.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. 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).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.
