How to identify function key on emachines keyboard


No that's the Windows key

For a desktop computer keyboard, keys F1 through F12 are the Function keys. No Fn key needed.

For a laptop computer hold the Fn key down, then tap once on the F1 through F12 keys

Sounds like the keyboards a bit confused try going to control panel then under region and languages click on keyboard and select another countrys keyboard layout and click apply then change it back and apply again. I cant guarantee this will work but its certainly worth a try. Please let me know if this works good luck.......cheers from Scott and plz vote

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might...


Try to open the Device Manager, just right click the My Computer then click Properties, then Hardware and click Device Manager, After that just see the Sound, Vedio and game controller if their's no question mark (?) or apostrophe (!). If don't have any mark like that your sound card has no problem. And if they have mark like that you just reinstall the driver of your sound card. But if theirs no changes after you reinstall that driver, maybe your soundcard was damage and need to be replace. If your sound card is built in or onboard just buy another sound card device and install it to your computer.

My husband has acer 4520 cant get question mark..when presses ? key he will get E or e


Oh this is a returning issue with my Canadian users. The keyboard is french, that is the one with the E letter things at the place you normally have the question mark. It is indeed a keyboard layout but it gets randomly selected. Saw this problem only on VISTA so I will describe how to do it in Vista.

Go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages, Change Keyboards. Here you will see all keyboard layouts installed. Make sure you remove any that you do not need or if you see the french one even, remove that by selecting the one causing you problem 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 change the mapping.

If the above solution for whatever reason does not work, just push Shift and Ctrl at the same time, hold it pushed for about 5-10 seconds and let go at the same time. You have to be in the active window (the application in which you tried to type and it gave you E-s instead of ?-s) for this to work. But please try my first suggestion first with the keyboard layouts because I am confident that is your problem.

Please rate if this solution was helpfull. :)

Keyboard problems


This probably results from a setting that got changed in your messenger. One of the tabs on the messenger window is the path to the settings, but I don't know which as I use the messenger in the beta mail window. If you can't find the setting, you could alternately uninstall and reinstall messenger to restore the defaults.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
