Usually a third symbol on a key will require the holding of another key to apply that symbol as when holding the shift key to go upper case and what not. But the third the symbol is usually a different color and the key to press to access that symbol is the same color as the symbol is. Such as with many laptop keyboards the FN key (usually at the bottom left side of the keyboard) is a bluish color and pressing it is required to apply the blueish symbols on keys.
I hope this helps.

There 3 lights on the right top side of keyboard - one is capital lock -one is number lock- what is the third one? the light is on and I don't know what to hit ti turn it off.. thanks


The third one is probably Scroll lock. On your keyboard you should see a key labels Scroll Lock or it may be abbreviated. The key may also have the same symbol as the light. You turn Scroll lock on and off the same way as turning Num Lock on and off. Usually involves using the FN key + Scroll Lock.

On the Zippy keyboard and probably lots of others there are two methods of accessing different symbols on keys. other than the normal,caps lock and numlock options.

Holding either 'shift key' will type the upper symbols on key. holding 'alt Gr' key will type the 3rd symbol on a key if more than 2 on key. such as ` ¬ ¦

Instruction for keyboard on T23 laptop


On most notebook PCs, there is a key at the lower left labeled "Fn". You hold this key down while also pressing the key that has the third symbol you want. This answer works for MOST notebook PC keyboards. I can't guarantee that it will work for yours. Try it.

Thanks for your support


Remove the keyboard screws first, the screws that secure the keyboard have keyboard symbols next to the screws.
Some Compaq/HP have slide catches along the top edge of the keyboard between the number keys and the Function keys. Usually the slide catches are located between the ESC & F1 key, F4 & F5 key, F8 & F9 keys, F12 & delete keys. Slide these catches towards the front edge of the keyboard (ie. towards the space bar) you should be able to lift the keyboard clear. Don't forget to unclip the ribbon cables on the keyboard.
