Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Open Question

Gateway/Acer keyboard Model KU-0833 (English/French)\r\nWhere can I find a description of what all the keys do? Most are obvious but many others I have no idea what they do (the three keys to the right of the space bar for e.g.) or how to get to them (the blue ‘degree’ symbol to the right of the ‘shift’ key). How do I quickly toggle between English and French without changing ‘control panel’ settings?

Hi lal1220,

I had the exact same problem with my keyboard (KU-0883). What you want to do is first go into your "Control Panel". From there under "Hardware and Sound", go to "View Devices and Printers". Right Click on your USB Keyboard and go to "Region and Language". Under the "Keyboard and Languages" tab click on "Change Keyboard". From the "General" Tab click on "Add". Scroll down to "English (Canada)" and expand it by hitting +. Uncheck "Canadian French" and "Canadian Multilingual Standard". Then press "OK". After which you press "Apply" and "OK". Give your computer a quick reboot and your good to go.

I have a gateway keyboard ku-0833 and its working fine but I spilt a little coffee on it and a few of the keys are stiff to push. Is there a way I can clean it, tried using cotton swabs around the keys but...


You can pry out the keys using a butter knife and use rubbing alcohol to clean the underneath.

if the coffee got into the connectors you might be out of luck.

**THE FOLLOWING IS NOT RECOMMENDED**
When i spilt mt dew on my keyboard i took out the battery let it decharge for 5 minutes. I put it in a pan and poured rubbing alcohol on it and let it sit for 5 min. While it was sitting i swished the alcohol around a little bit so it could flow. took it out and let it dry for about 1-2 hours and it worked perfectly. this is orta used as a last resort

Bilingual keyboard


There is a small green Fn button near the start button you will have to use this with shift to use the green keys if you are in multi lingual mode, if you only use the laptop for french you can also change the regional settings for the keyboard to Just French and then they will work just by using shift.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chose french windows instead english windows by accident and need to change it


Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
Obviously you'll have to work out the French equivalents of the options but should be fairly obvious

KEYBOARD PROPLEM


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.

that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.
