What you need to do is to get a skinny flat tip screw driver and pop it back into position. But be careful though because if you pop it off you might not be able to get it back on. I have popped my f8 key on my laptop and haven't got it back on due to some tiny plastic pieces that if you don't have on correctly you won't be able to pop it back on. If you bought the laptop recently you may be able to go where you bought it and see if they can fix it for you.

Where is the wireless button located on bytespeed PC

Check the function keys (F1, F2, F3, etc) for a "wireless" icon. Then when you have found it, hold the "Fn" key (lower left hand side of the keyboard) first and try toggling the function key until a menu comes up or the wireless starts to work.

Try this, it works on older LG TV models:

Put the projector on. While holding down the Menu key on the projector, press and hold down the Menu button on the remote. Keep both buttons pressed for a count of at least 5 seconds.

When the Service Menu pops up, release the Menu button on the remote control first and then the one on the projector after.

Now you're in to the service menu, you need to find out which button on the remote brings up the Lamp Timer Reset function. This is where you're going to have to do a bit of trial and error. With the TVs, the remote button was the Mute key. There isn't a Mute key on the projector remote, so try the Lamp key first. If that doesn't work then try some other buttons. Here's the method.

While holding down the Enter/OK on the projector, press and hold the Lamp key for five second. If this works then the lamp timer reset box should appear. Release the remote button first, followed by the unit button.

Press Enter/OK on the remote to reset the lamp timer. If there's an On Screen Prompt to confirm, press Enter again.

Press Exit on the remote to come out of the menus.

Warning: Don't reset or change any other functions. The service menu isn't the place to be tinkering around with stuff you don't understand.

The jkl are coming up as number,cant seen to unlock it or how!

I really need to know operating system and Keyboard make and maybe model to give you a definite answer. I'll do my best though.
1.It could possibly be that your "function" key is stuck.
This key is usually blue or yellow and has "Fn" on it. Look on your keyboard and see if you can find a "Fn" key. If you find it try hitting it a few times and see if it works to change the letters back to numbers and vice versa. If there is no response than it could be stuck Internally.

2. To see if that is the problem try hitting some other keys and see if they come up right or are displaying their secondary "function"

3.If all other keys except jkluio are working normal than then next i would try the "num-lock" or any other "lock" buttons located on your keyboard. These are usually located at the top right hand corner above the number pad or to the right of the "backspace"

4.If that does not work than it is a setting in your computer and you need to restore your settings to default.
a)Hit start and go to the control panel
b)once in control panel select "devices and printers" or "printers and hardware" depending on your OS
c)Once in that menu you should see an icon that says "Keyboard"
Click on that...
d) This menu will vary a ton between different OS's and keyboards and drivers so you need to look around and try to set to default. There should be properties and settings you can adjust. Also a "troubleshooting" option is worth clicking on.

5.If your still not fixed, look in the keyboard menu in the control panel and click on the "Drivers" tab. In this tab you will see options to "Update" the driver and "Roll-Back" the driver. Try each of these once starting with "roll-back"

If NONE of these steps has resolved you issue than i would say the keyboard is broke and to get a new one...

Hope this helps GOOD LUCK!!!!

I tryed starting my 2006 cadillac cts this morning and the key turns over and the car wont start. also as i bring the key back the key wont come out of the ignition. now its stuck. my key fab does not...

try removing your key fob and replacing the battery .it sounds like its a security issue and the body control has locked you out and is keeping the key too.replacing the battery in the key fob should restore all.if not you will need a body control module and has to be programmed by a dealer.

Keypad not functioning properly...

Check to see if your shift, control, alt, or other modifier keys are stuck on your keyboard. These can cause your keyboard to act erratically. Also, if this is a wireless keyboard, you may need to change the batteries, as this can also cause a keyboard to act erratically.

Start up menu

I know nothing about this machine in particular but immediately when the computer beeps... Generally the "delete" key gets you into the bios menu. If not that, then its almost always a function key "F1"-"F12" Just try running your finger down and back the function row as it boots if "DEL" fails Windows' boot menu comes up when you hit "f8" repeatedly before the windows logo appears. For older Windows versions use the left shift key and hold it just before and during the windows logo. Give it a try!
