Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My keys produce something they are NOT supposed to... AND IT'S NOT NUMLOCK! x = x1, 1 = x1, e = 5e, 5 = 5e, q = =q, = = =q, backspace doesn't work unless i hold it down because it too is working in conjunction with another key ( \ i think...) Anyway, I know every tech out there thinks that these posts are by "computer illiterates", but I am not. I've built desktops from scratch, and I know it isn't numlock... Please, if ANYONE can suggest something that isn't a lay man's answer, I would greatly appreciate it...

The keyboard region/language get changed? Perhaps the keyboard layout has been changed as a result.

How do I enable the backspace key to backspace and correct typos on my HP?

Nothing is supposed to be done to enable or disable, not that I know of. Possibly, your keyboard is the problem, which is very anoying.

I have a keyboard problem - typing a question mark etc produces weird characters - looks like a numlock problem but my Dell XPS 15 has no numlock key - thanks in advance, driving me nuts :)

There should be a num lock key on you computer. You may have to push the fn key located by the windows and the alt key on the bottom left of your computer. And this will give keys other functions. So look again for num lock in small righting on one of the keys

Hi . Please could you explain for me , I have formatted my netbook, and then the keyboard that I use on the netbook not works correctly. Left side of the keyboard works properly, right side doesn`t works...

The numlock must be ON - just press function key and Numlock key (Both must be in same colour - maybe Blue) and the keys should work - If the problem is solved then enter the BIOS setup and reset the Power on Numlock to OFF so that it will be off any time you start the windows.

Main keyboard

The kkkkkkkk problem will be a sticky key, possibly something jamming the contact under the key.
The p* problem is your numlock is on. Laptop keyboards don't have numeric keypads like dsktops do, so when you press numlock on, it uses part of the keyboard to emulate a keypad.

You will probably have to press something like shift+numlock or ctrl+numlock or FN+numlock to release it. There should also be a light at the top of the laptop to indicate it's in numlock mode.
