    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 grand daughter has some how turned on the FN key so when she is typing numbers come on the screen instead of the letters. How do we stop this ?


The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.

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
