Check to see if your shift, control, alt, or other modifier keys are stuck on your keyboard. These can cause your keyboard to act erratically. Also, if this is a wireless keyboard, you may need to change the batteries, as this can also cause a keyboard to act erratically.

In compaq laptop in that all the key r working proper but only MNLK is not working. insted of 0123 is coming plz help me


It is possible that the shift key is shorted or there is fault on the keyboard track. If you look closer to the keypad button there is a shift key for using the M or shift to using 0. So this section could have faulted. It is ideal to remove the keyboard, remove all screws on the back board and remove and clean the pads. If not the keyboard is faulty in the tracks or the circuit.

I have an Acer Aspire 5517. Just the other day, my touchpad and keyboard stopped working. What do I do?


1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.

2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.

3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it

4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.

Thanks.Have a great day.

I NEED A MANUAL TO SHOW HOW TO GET MULTIFUNCTION KEYS TO WORK. FOR EXAMPLE HOW DO I GET THE ALTERNATE USE OF THE "NUMERIC 6 "KEY ie THE" QUESTION MARK" FUNCTION


You must have a different keyboard selected other than the standard US keyboard My numeral 6 has ^ on it and the numeric keypad 6 has a right arrow. One generally uses the SHIFT key to access symbols that are written above the main alpha or numeric key. The numeric keypad on side of PC has a button labeled key marked NUMLOCK that is engaged to allow use of the numerals as a calculator or to also be inserted into text.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Some of my keys don't work.and restart my computter to the begining.


hope ur a professional..!!
howevr, try dis..
You'll need to edit the Registry Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\keyboard layout\preload..change the "1" value setting to the Key name below..You'll also need to expand the file in the File Name to the System32 folder. You can use "System Sentry's" 'Inflate a File' feature to install the file..Layout Name: French; File (Y2K/XP): kbdfr.dll; Key Name: 00010407..
hope dis works..if not can post me comments..i'll try to resolve it better..

the other option:
You will need your windows xp CD to install additional language..
Go to Control Panel..
Click on Regional and Language Options..
Click on Advance option..
Select Language you require..
Click on Apply..
It will Prompt "Please insert Windows XP Cd"..
Insert the CD, and it will install the required files for running the language..

if the above all fails:
u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..
{In laptops with a small screen (14,15" ) the keyboard is accordingly smaller than for desktops, and there is no numeric keypads, or arrow pad. So the keys 7,8,9 0, U,I,O,P,J,K,L ,comma, dot, / have a triple function: the primary function, the shifted function, and a third accessed by an FN-Fx key combination. The actual key combination may depend on manufacturer. If that key combination has been activated, the foregoing keys perform the third function they were designed for..
Read your laptop manual to find out how the Fn- function key works and deactivate the Fn-Fx combination responsible for your keyboard behavior..}..

best is to seek advice of ur system admin/vendor....
