    My daughter flicked off many keys and my computer is no longer under warranty. Where can I bring it to get it fixed? Does Best Buy do it?

It depends on the manufacturer. I see this on laptops rather frequently and it really depends on the keyboard as to how difficult it is to get back on. Sometimes even with all the pieces, I cant get the key back on and have to replace the keyboard. Doesn't hurt to try especially if it is still under warranty.

Probook 6470b is there any kind of illumination? So you can work in darkness. Not the illuminated keyboard... I know I don't have that option.


If it has a Fn button on the bottom left of the keyboard next to the Ctrl key, press the Fn button and hold down, then press the arrow keys left or right while holding down the Fn key.

My fn key will not work on my laptop. it did but then just stopped I have a toshiba , windowns 7


Dear User,

Kindly check in the bios if you have swapped Fn key with Ctrl Key.
Also check if Ctrl key works as Fn key.

If the settings are fine then it could be hardware issue with the Fn key.

Laptop button not working


Press alt+ctrl+fn
Most of the time this will work.

1. Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and
see if that releases CTRL.

2. Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /
Keyboard Options.
Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.
If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"
Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".
Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".
Or turn off "Use shortcut"

3. Clean your keyboard.

If not working, comment back. All the best.

How to turn off blue keys for an Compaq mini cq10??


Hi,

if you are refering to the blue letters or alphabets which are present on the keyboard. HP designs keyboard with a billingual layout in some Notebook models.

The HP "Blue" keys are indeed the "French" input keys or other language keys.

How to use the Blue Symbols or keys on a HP Notebook:

We can activate them by pressing Ctrl+fn+right Shift.To deactivate, press Ctrl+fn+right Shift twice, i.e. Ctrl+fn+right Shift then let go off Shift while still holding Ctrl and fn, then press Shift again.

When you press Ctrl+Fn+Right Shift it will switch to the the billigual layout. That means the blue characters become prioritie.

For example, if you are in the billingual layout, when you press shift+6 you will get a '?' but not the '^' sign.

Fn+f2


fn+f2 means your pressing two keys at once
the function key (fn - usually a different color - maybe blue - than the letter keys) and the f2 key

hold down the fn first then the f2 - look for the fn on the lower right or left next to Ctrl keys
