    this problem has been solved

    for others who have this problem:

    it was a language bar problem, for some reason it was set to canada multi lingual. on windows vista original settings, it is by the clock on the taskbar on the bottom right of your computer. it looks like a little keyboard.

I think you're computer has a setting changed so that it thinks it's using a keyboard layout for another language.

Keyboards with other languages have those keys in places where the English keyboards have keys as follows / > < [ ]

Advent 9517 several letter keys bring up numbers

Touch Freeze, a free utility program may help fix that problem. I assume this just started to happen, correct?
If that fails, try another keyboard, preferably a USB Wireless Mouse/Keyboard.

My computer laptop model is Toshiba satellite P750. The FN key doesn't work. Nothing happen when i touch it.

The "Fn" key is a function key, it works with the top row of F1 to F12 keys.
By pressing and holding down the "Fn" key, then pressing one of the top
row "F" keys,

I'v provided a link for you to go to for the full list of "F" functions and what they
do for you as well as how to operate them on your Toshiba Laptop.

I have just got a zoostorm kangaroo vme50 and cant get the webcam to work, i've looked in the device list and it isn't shown. i tried Fn button & Esc together and nothing happened


you could try this combination of keys to enable/disable your webcam

FN+F1 then if you use skype or msn you could then try the camera to see if it works
also take a look in device manager under imaging devices to see if it in there and no yellow question mark beside it

if it is in there and has a yellow question mark beside it then un install it and restart the laptop
and hopefully on start up windows will re install the webcam correctly for you

many thanks

How use the functions key F1 to F12


In your samsung laptop you'll be able to see a Fn key on the left to windows key and space bar, press that along with the any keys from F1 to F12 and it will function normally.

eg-- Fn key + F1 key will open up windows help (as it happens in normal systems when we press F1 key)
