When I type, sometimes a key types a french letter with an accent. How do I get it back to the english version? Also, my number pad to the right of the main keyboard doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Make sure the NUM LOCK key is on. Your number key pad won't work if it's not on. As far as the French letters with accents, when the Enable indicator on taskbar check box is selected, and you have two or more languages installed, an indicator that represents the default language appears on the Windows taskbar. To switch between languages quickly, click the indicator, and then click the language you want to use. You can also use shortcut keys to switch between languages while you type. Select one of the switch languages options on the Language tab to set the shortcut keys.

When typing question marks & puctuation...French comes up


In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English is selected as the Default Input Language. If French is listed as an available keyboard layout and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Hi Sam,

Sorry your problem got left in the que for a while, but Lee apparently wasn't familiar with that keyboard. You do have an extra key near the start button that activates the Tags and other coloured symbols while in french or multi language mode. Simply use it like a shift key.

If you're not using the HP to type in french and don't require the accents you can change the setting in windows to tell the computer that your keyboard is a US english keyboard which will reassign all the keycodes to the "normal" locations by english speaking standards.

To do so, open your control panel, click on the classic mode link if it's not already in classic mode(20+ icons). Then click on the regional settings icon. Depending on wether you have Vista or XP the panel varies slightly XP has a keyboards tab, Vista has a Input Devices tab. Either way go to that tab and click the button to adjust input devices, on the page that pops up you will see a list of available, installed keyboards. If US english isn't listed click the ADD button find it in the list and add it.

If you only type in english, remove all other keyboards. If you use french as well, remove all but the canadian french/canadian multilingual depending which you have(if you don't know follow instructions below to find out). Then OK out of the window. OK the regional settings window and close the control panel. If you only select US english you're done, if you left French as an option you will see a small blue icon to the left of the clock, you can click on it at any time to switch between your installed keyboard modes.


Hope this Helps FixYa!

Model info for your product can be found at www.hp.com click Support & Drivers, then select the Knowledgebase button on the next screen and type in your full model number or allow the automated link to check your model online. When it launches your product page select Product Specifications from the long list in the middle and if it brings up a second list select the same.

You can now scroll down the specs and your keyboard will be listed as either Canadian English/French/Multiligual, all three have some variation of the keys you described.

I do not obtain to type accents


This probably has more to do with the settings in the computer than directly with the keyboard.

Assuming you're running Windows, you need to make sure you have your language settings right.

The machine I'm using here is running XP Home - on that, I do Start_Settings_Control Panel, then I open "Regional & Language Options", then select my own language there.

To get accents, you may have to do combinations of keypresses - look up "accents" or "international characters" in the help file for your word processor software for ideas. (For instance, in Word, to get a grave accent, you need to do <ctrl>+` before you type the letter you want accented).
