Either the "blue" coloured 'FN' is _stuck_ in the "down" position, or you have accidentally activated the "Sticky Keys" Windows "accessibility" tool.

With "Sticky Keys", you press keys just _one_ at a time, e.g., CTRL then ALT then DELETE instead of pressing multiple keys (SHIFT and '8') at the same time.

Restart, in order to turn-off "Sticky Keys".

Or, "exercise" the 'FN' key, until it "unsticks" itself.

Symbol @ from my hp is different i can not type


I had that problem before. When i installed windows 8 to my laptop, the keyboard goes that way. Try to click the key from what was the symbol appeared instead while you were pressing the 2 or @ key. Maybe they're switching each other...I cant find what was the reason why it happened, maybe the compatibility or driver issues. When i turned WIN 7 OS back...the keyboard works normally again.

I dont know how to access all of the symbols that are on a key e.g. one key has a question mark, a slash and two other symbols, one is blue and the other is green


You use teh shift key and the [FN] key to access these extra sets of characters. If it is basically a circle around a symbol then press and Hold the [FN] key while pressing the key you want. If it is the ?,,{,},:," or any of the symbols on the upper part of the number keys at the top of the keyboard just press and hold the shift key while pressing the key.

When I go to the y= key to graph, instead of the slash / in front of the y there is a sideways hourglass type solid figure. What is this and how do I get back to the normal setting?


Move to that line. Press left-arrow one or more times until the cursor is over the symbol. Press ENTER repeatedly to cycle through the different graph styles.

How do I get the Euro symbol on an ASUS keyboard to operate as it is in tandem with the figure 4?


Whenever there is a symbol to the right of a key, using the Alt Gr key pressed down and then that key tapped, brings the relevant symbol up. Also works if you want an acute accent instead of going to character map, i.e. ?, ?

Extra symbols?


There are shortcuts, albeit usually Alt + a numeric sequence. Visit http://www.pcdon.com/page3.html for a full tutorial on the subject matter.

Hope this helps!

Keyboard buttons coming out with diffrent symbols to what i want


Hi,
You have your Num Lock on, look for the Num Lock key (should be located in the top right of the keyboard) press that key and your keyboard will return to normal.
Sometimes you have to hold down Fn or shift when you press the Num Lock key.



Good luck.
