This means that your number lock is turned on.

there is a Fn key on the board. hold that and look for the number lock key and press it. each system is different so it will be either NumLk, NumLock, or a 1 with a lock symbol. Acer generally places this on a F key many times F7.

    if that didnt' work then you are looking a damaged keyboard or you did not do it correctly.



    you have to hold down the Fn key when you use it or it will not work.



    the other way to remove it if you cannot get that to work is to put an external keyboard on the unit and use its num lock key to turn it off on the laptop.

Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.
Hold down the "ALT" key while typing 0153 and it will enter this: ™ when you release the ALT key

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

My computer keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters.. any suggestions on how to fix it


This is because most notebook keyboards have a number pad incorporated into the right-hand side of the keyboard. Numbers are being typed because the NumLock is active.
To disable this function press the NumLock key (might be marked NumLock or have a symbol that looks like a calculator on it) on the keyboard (you might need to press the Fn function key and the NumLock simultaneously).

The upper case figs ie @ and " have swopped positions how do i get them back to their right postions


The difference in the @ and " symbols occurs between US and UK keyboards, where UK keyboards have the " symbol on the "2" key and US keyboards have the @ symbol on the "2" key.

Regardless of what physical drawing you have on the keyboard, you can change the actions of the keys by setting up the appropriate US or UK keyboard layout in Windows.

First, determine whether you'd prefer a US or a UK layout. In the US layout, pressing SHIFT+2 will write @. In the UK layout, pressing it will write ".

Now, from the Start menu, select Settings and go to Control Panel. Once there, search for "Regional and Language Options". Under the "Languages" tab there is a button labeled "Details". Press it, and a new window opens with the keyboard layouts. Use the "Add" button to select the keyboard layout you want (English, US or UK, Qwerty - not Dvorak), then Remove your old keyboard layout. Press OK and exit all the screens, you're done.

Hope this helps.

Computer is locked in the green symbols of the keyboard


TO SHUT OFF the green keys, you need to disable the multiligual or French keyboard layouts. For Windows 7:

Click CONTROL PANEL
click CLOCK, LANGUAGE, AND REGION

under REGION AND LANGUAGE
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS... etc.

click KEYBOARDS AND LANGUAGES
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS

.......for example, by clicking on a keyboard name (ie. US or and UNITED KINGDOM for example) and then clicking PROPERTIES to the rtight, you can see the actual key layout.......

On the list of installed languages, click anything multiligual or French, and then click REMOVE found on the right-hand column

click APPLY
click OK
Then you've removed the French.

Otherwise you have to click the LEFT ALT key and then the LEFT SHIFT key to swich back and forth between the green keys and the white keys.
