Hmmm it seems by mistake you have changed your key-board layout to french language.

  • Hold down Alt and press Shift. (Alt+Shift). Check the result by pressing thoes keys. If its back to original means you have installed both English/French both and can toggle pressing Alt+Shift.
  • Otherwise goto Start -> Control Panel -> Regional And Language Option.
  • Click on Language Tab, then Details button.
  • Now in settings tab you can see the languages installed on your system. You can remove un-wanted or/and select a default languages which you want.

Please post your feed-back
Thanks

How can I get the slash sign?


To type a slash going from the lower left to the upper right (like this / ), hit the key to the right of the full stop key on your keyboard. To type a slash going from the lower right to the upper left (like this \ ) hit the key to the left of the z key on your keyboard.

The kind of slashes used in web addresses are forward slashes, that is going from lower left to upper right e.g. http://www.fixya.com/

When I hit forward slash my audio deck comes up on the screen. When I hit hyphen, the volume shows up on the bottom of the screen. How do I correct this?

It sound like your "CTRL" key or some other function key is stuck on your keyboard. I would try another keyboard on your computer. If the problem goes away then the problem is with your keyboard.

Certain keys not working on zboard


remove the plug from the back of the motherboard (Purple)
Check the prongs inside of the male connector for damage and/or dirt.
all of those are TX and RX protocols which talk to your machine and send the events back and fourth.
If that does not work, it is due to water inside the mainboard of the keyboard. replace.

Compaq laptop can't get the ? symbol


Hi,

Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.
You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:

Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.

If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.

Also found this:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
seem to change the mapping.

Hope this helps!
