MapKeyboard enables you to remap your keyboard and alter any key to function as a different one or optionally disable it as well.


The program can be quite useful for laptop users and people with keyboards that differ from the standard


hope this helps

I have purchased (Sept 2011) a reconditioned HP NC4400 (without instruction manual) that will not connect to my existing Internet (wireless). I used Help (Intel (R) Wireless Troubleshooter) on the laptop...


Hi Steve,
The wireless switch would absolutely have an effect on whether your WIFI was ON on your laptop. The following link shows a diagram of your laptop:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12448_na/12448_na.HTML
It appears that it is a button on either the left edge of the laptop, or possibly above the keyboard. Press the button and ensure your WIFI LED (front-left edge) should be lit. Then, try connecting to your wireless network again. I hope this helps!

Compaq 730us touch pad not responding


Hi
To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop/desktop XP Home, XPPro:
Reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.

I sometimes accidentally switch the keyboard to characters other than standard English. I don't even know how I do this. How do I switch back to the standard keyboard? If I switch the computer off, then...


There should be a sequence that you need to press to change it from one type of keyboard characters to another. Look for a key that has the symbol of a keyboard on it. Most likely this is the key that is causing you the problems. Typically you have to press the Function key that is near the space bar as well as the key with the symbol on it to change it from one character set to the other. Evey laptop keyboard is alittle different than the next when it comes to which keys are "functions keys", so you will have to examine your keyboard to find the correct key on you laptop.

Keyboard


one of 3 things seems likely: 1) you have a key on your motherboard that is stuck. tap the heck out of your Fn key, as well as all your Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys. 2) your computer (operating system) has switched keyboard modes from standard western world american english setting to some other style. See if you can use your mouse to checkout keyboard settings in the control panel. 3) your keyboard is toast. hit dell/ebay for a replacement keyboard (the cheapest part of a laptop).

KEYBOARD DRIVER FOR COMPAQ R4000


There is no driver from Compaq because it just uses a standard driver from the operating system.

Try removing the keyboard from the device manager.

Then restarting the computer.

Let me know what happens.

Hitachi flora laptop and problems with typing @ symbol


Using it in English mode? Does that mean that Windows is set to English??

Does it have a standard QWERTY english keyboard?? If it has a japanese keyboard, with windows set to English, then the keys will be different. Shift key with number 2 gives you the @ symbol on a QWERTY english keyboard.
