Please forgive short answers or bad typing i broke my wrist in an auto accident last night. there should be a a key marked "mode", "fn" or something similar, it will most likely be blue. this key should toggle the blue keys on or off. some computers also require the num lock to be on as well before this works. some computers allow you to set different activation methods through keyboard in control panel. please note most computers require you to have a driver installed for these keys to work. good luck.

    No, on these computers it is toggled through 3 keys: hold down ctrl, shift, and press fn. this will toggle you through the alternate key layouts (2 blue and 1 regular)

Compaq Presario CQ50 Cannot operate to use the


I assume you are using a version of Windows. If so, you will need to go to the control panel and reset the type of keyboard you are trying to use. This will most likely require loading a new driver for the keyboard. If you got a CD with the keyboard, there should be a driver for it on the CD. If not, you may find a driver on the internet ... try a google search for the name & model of your keyboard.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type


It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

I dont know how to use the blue keys on the typing pad


In order to use the blue keys on your keyboard you must first press and hold the FN key then press the blue key of choice. The FN is located at the bottom right corner of your keyboard using next to the control or Ctrl key. I hope this helps.
