You probably need to install driver files for your specific keyboard.

what operating system are you using, what model of keyboard, and what model of computer?

What are the 8 keys above the function keys, my keyboard doesn't state what the keys are and I have no idea


Those keys do not exist on normal keyboards so they are unique to your keyboard. You need to look at the make and model of your keyboard and use Google.com to search for information about it. Typically, manufacturers add extra keys to make it easier to change volume settings and open email or internet programs. The icons on the buttons should be a clue to their function.

I hope this helps.

How to troubleshoot keyboard issues?


<b>Summary:</b><br /> Keyboard issues are relatively easy to troubleshoot. If the cu has another keyboard available then try that keyboard or if the cu has another system avaialble then test the keyboard on that system. Remember when the keyboard is unplugged the system will usually need to be rebooted before it will work again.<br /> <b>Wireless Keyboard:</b><br /> If only some of the keys don't work skip to the section <b>Some Keys Don't Work</b> below.<br /> <ol> <li>Resynchronize the keyboard. Press the connect button on the keyboard for 5 seconds. Then press the connect button on the receiver for 5 seconds <li>Change the batteries. <li>Try reseating the receiver if possible. <li>Try positioning the keyboard closer to the receiver. <li>Skip to the section <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b> below. </li></ol> <b>Some Keys Don't Work:</b><br /> <ol> <li>Check if any of the num lock key, shift lock key, etc are causing the issue. This is especially prevalent on laptops which don't have a distinct numeric keypad. <li>If it's only the multimedia or hotkeys that don't work then try installing the specialized multimedia keyboard software that came with the system/keyboard. <li>Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting. <li>Go into <b>Accessibility Options</b> in <b>Control Panel</b> and check that <b>Sticky Keys</b>, <b>Filter Keys</b> and <b>Toggle Keys</b> are all switched off. <li>Check if the problem occurs in the BIOS. A good screen to test with is the create BIOS password screen if the keys don't work here then a new keyboard is in order. <li>Continue on to <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b>. </li></ol> <b>No Keys Work:</b><br /> <ol> <li>Try reseating the keyboard and rebooting. <li>Try power draining the system. This can be particularly effecitive with a laptop. <li>If this is USB try a different port. <li>Try entering BIOS - if you cannot get into BIOS then the keyboard probably needs to be replaced. <li>Go on to <b>Generic Troubleshooting</b> below. </li></ol> <b>Generic Troubleshooting:</b><br /> <ol> <li>Try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver and reboot <li>Try system restore back to before the problem occurred <li>Check for malware or 3rd party software that may be interfering with the function of the keyboard. <li>FFR or replace/upsell a new keyboard. </li></ol>

What keyboard are you useing ???

You maybe just need to install the driver or software for the keyboard.
Try to visit the manufactures site of the keyboard in search for software.
The driver is sometimes available at windows update.
Are there any faults in the device manager ???

Good luck

F1 keys etc.


Allows you Map your function keys to any type of text or user defined macros that you wish. It is a great utility to store commonly used phrases, standard email replys, email address, or even create useful macros like setting F1 to Ctrl V so you can paste with one key http://www.5starshare.com/My_Function_Keys-soft19161.html

Keyboard buttons


Hi Grumpy Gran
Great name by the way. Are they listed top to bottom ` a two headed arrow, caps lock, an up arrow and ctrl?
These are not particular active keys. If you have used a typewriter the two headed arrow is the tab key, use it to jump a given number of spaces to the right.
The caps lock will set your keyboard in capitals mode. The uparrow is the shift key which temporarily puts it into capitals or vice-versa. The ctrl key is a special key which is not used in normal typing. You may not need it in normal use.
Good luck with your surfing.
ps its not a good idea to unplug your keyboard whilst the computer is still on. You should connect it when the computer is off so that it is detected when the computer starts.
