Text writing is weird. I write and part of the word appears a sentence away?


Ha, it's because your wrist or thumb is touching the mousepad occasionally - some are more sensitive than others.

Try turning the mousepad off while typing, sometimes there is a button at the mousepad area, others it's an Alt-Function key. Look for a symbol on the F-keys that look like a finger touching a square or mousepad. This, and the Alt key combination will shut it off and then back on again when you select them.
An external or USB keyboard and mouse works great for me.

Hi, am ganesh functions keys


If those are the only keys on the key board that are not responding, I would try to
1. boot in safe mode and check response. If you have other keys on the laptop that are not working,
2. I would boot operating system from a flash drive and check

and if both still are not working for you
3.try an external key board

Last replace the key board

Hope this helps

You state to hold the fn, and hit the power button.....OK, whats the ( fn ) key ?


The Fn key is a key found usually on the keyboards of portable computers (laptops, netbooks etc) and sometimes on desktop type keyboards.

It is a key usually marked with a blue coloured "Fn" and is located somewhere on the bottom left row of keys.

The Fn key is used in combination with other keys that have (usually) blue letters or icons on them to activate the special functions (Fn) on these keys.

For example, on the laptop I'm writing this on; If I press F5 the computer would perform the action my software has normally assigned to F5. If however I press the Fn button and F5, the computers internal function for decreasing screen brightness is invoked.

Different computer makes have different assignment to their keyboard Fn so you can't generally say press Fn+F5 to decrease screen brightness, it might be assigned to something else, volume or sleep-mode or even nothing. The "blue" text or icon will give an indication of what it will do.

Hope this helps explain the Fn key ;)

The function (purple) key symbols type when I am trying to type non-function (white) symbols. When I press the function (purple) key, the white symbol types.


There's a "Fn" key on the bottom left hand of the key board.

This key switches between the purple/white key funtions.

This gives the opportunity to have loads of functions with just a few keys.

Sometimes the keys that have white and blue writing on them will only respond blue. How do i get them to respond as white instead of blue keys?


You have a FNC key on your keyboard. Since it is a laptop, your keyboard can not have all the keys that a normal keyboard has. This is handled by making some keys perform two or more functions. Thus, the alternate key use if the blue keys (function key is depressed). You will pribably find that there is a light labeled as FNC where you see your caps lock, num lock etc.. it sounds to me that you have your keyboard in alternate function mode so that the keys are performing the alternate functions (probably the numeric keys if it is a normal configuration..).
Thanks!

As I type I notice that the letter are missing


Keyboards like any other device start to fail because the keys when pushed are striking a sensor pad underneath and over time these pads, sensors etc. start to fail. May be time for a new one. Random key problems are not a driver or an operating system problem. Sounds like hardware.
