Brightness keys f2 and f3 not working after i replaced the hard disk

The brightness keys on laptops are interpreted by either the laptop hardware, or more likely, the operating system.
I would recommend going to HP's support site,, and downloading the latest chipset drivers from the site.
If you are running Windows 7 than try the Vista drivers if Win 7 is not listed as an operating system.

I have a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000. Some of the keys don't work at all. The ones that do work type the wrong letters. This is what I get when I type my name. darlene albin/uxgmtkt;xmwpk


Good day. I'll advise you to purchase a new keyboard because the the letter are already not correct which means the keyboard is already broken and there's no way to fix it. Im sorry but that's the only solution that can resolve your issue. Hope this information help you. Have a great day to you.

I need to know what are the function keys on a keyboard

Hello earthaalford:
Your function keys are usually located on the top row and are labeled F1,F2,F3 and so forth. The function of those keys depends on what program you are currently operating in ie: Windows, Office , Word, Excel or any number of other programs.
Hope this helps, if it did just click the thumbs up.
Sincerely, Peter N.

I use MacBook Pro (OS X version 10.5.8) in combination with LCD TV, wireless mouse and new Apple wireless keyboard. The problem is that function keys of the wireless keyboard do not respond in a same way...

Make sure to run all available software updates as there's probably a firmware update for your keyboard you need to download.

If there isn't or the problem persists afterwards, you'll need to go into Apple Menu > System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard and uncheck 'Use all F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys.'

Good luck!

My wifi is

Use the "Fn" key in combination with one of the F Function keys(example - F1 F2-F3 etc.) above the set of numeric keys. It will be a dual symbol key, meaning it will have wireless icon printed on it or the word "WiFi" in addition to the F number. It is usually one of the first 3 or 4 F keys. Remember, the "Fn" key must be pushed at the same time. It is a key combination like using <shift> and a regular alpha key to put a letter in CAPS.
Hope this helps Fixa! I am online if you need further help.

Keys on my SK9920 do I clean it?

The same thing happened to me with my gateway keyboard. The f2, f3, and f4 keys were stuck down in the keyboard itself. I just wanted a quick fix, so I soaked a paper towel, rung it out, and cleaned the keys like that, all the keys work wonderfully now

Most keyboards now a days usually tell you on screen whether or not the caps lock is on but its possiblbe that when you press the key yowards the left or right hand side a light goes on or possibly in the top center if this is not the case then you may have a faulty keyboard.

Trust keyboard

Well, generally the F1 key is for launching the help menu. The other keys have various functions depending upon your keyboard and the software you are working on.
CTRL+F4 generally closes the particular page or software you're on (like clicking the X button at the top right of your page) and the CTRL+F5 is for refresh.
This can vary depending on your keyboard, and I suggest you go through your keyboard manual for exact details.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
