Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Regional and Language Settings

Switch to use the "US English" keyboard,
instead of the "French" keyboard.

Or, if your keyboard has an 'ALT(ternate) GRA(phic)' key, hold that key down, press the '?' key, and a '?' should be displayed.

Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

HOW TO RESOLVE NONFUNCTIONAL KEYS ON MY NETBOOK?


Hi There,
Do you mean that the keyboard is not working as in, let's say the "enter" key doesn't function, or other keys do not function?
Or do you mean that there are specialized keys (usually media keys) on your netbook that don't seem to function?
If it's the latter, download the media keys application provided by the manufacturer here - http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=2262
If the former - purchase a new keyboard. Replacing a keyboard is fairly easy on netbooks and requires little to no skill other than unscrewing four to eight screws. - http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Acer-Emachines-eM350-EM-350-NAV51-NAV50-SERIES-NETBOOK-US-keyboard-/160655260194

I pressed some keys on the computer and now when I use the computer keyboard when I type o I get the number 6 and when I time i Iget the number 5. what did I do I am using a different keyboard as I type...


Hi Carol,

It seems that the function key (Fn) on the bottom left of the keyboard is stuck or jam. Try hitting the key multiple times or raise it with your fingers. Then try to press I and O again. Below the is image of the key you need to press and clear the jam from. You can also pat the keyboard/ laptop from at the bottom in case the jam wont clear by pressing the key.

Fig 1 : The function key

Fig 2 : The the shown below have multiple icon, those are activated by pressing Fn (function key)

I lost my question mark -- what do I press to get it back


Press your FN key.
If you look at your Keyboard on a laptop you'll see that certain keys have more than 1 symbol on them.
The FN key brings these secondary symbols to life as live keys and pressing it again will restore original function to the keyboard.

Acer keyboard can`t accsss keys such as question mark,. Alternat key won`t allow you to access uper keys.


Sounds like you need a new keyboard. If its a laptop they can be found by searching ebay or google the model and then "Replacement Parts" or "Replacement Keyboard".

If its a desktop, you need to purchase a new keyboard from a store or online.


Hope This Helps

I cannot get a question mark, the upper case E with a grave (green) on keyboard appears


When you get that it usually means the language setting for the keyboard has changed.

The standard key markings are valid for most english language settings. US is the default. To change this go to start - settings - control panel. Then look for Regional and language settings. Click on that and then in the window that open there are three tabs along the top. The middle one should say language, click on that one. In the Text Languages and input options area click on the Detail button. A new window opens. At the top it shows your language. And in the box under it will show your lnaguage and installed keyboard layout. So if I were using Canadian English and the US keyboard then the keys will function as marked. To change the keyboard language click the add button, then select your language and then the keyboard layout. When you click ok it goes back to the previous window but now will show the original setup and the new one you just made. Just remove the original and apply and close everything and your keyboard will now produce the correct characters.

FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
