How can I get the screen to brighten, and how can I get the blue symbols to work.


Not sure what model you have. Post your model # and I may be able to give better answers.
As far as the blue symbols. Most laptops have a special key to activate those. Look at the bottom left of the keyboard for a blue "FN" key or something like that. (You should have some key that would be just blue on it with no white--- it would say something like FN or Option or something). Hold that key down and then hit another key with a blue symbol to perform that action.
Note- that is probably how you change the brightness as well. Most laptops have the brightness control either as a blue function on the F keys (top of keyboard) or the up/down/left/right arrow keys on the bottom right.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

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.

Why keyboard o number press 6?


The number lock has been selected, there is a LED light that is on to indicate the number lock has been selected. You will also find several keys when press will give numbers instead of letters.
Look at the keys above the function keys for the number lock key. some laptop keyboards use the Fn key plus the SCRLk key.

Scroll lock not turning off


Hi,

Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard . Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.

My laptop keyboard has optional "blue" upper and lower case letters and punctuation. how do i turn these on or off. they seem to work independently. i must be turning them on or off without knowing it.


Those keys with the Blue function keys only works when you press the Function Key together with it those keys in blue. . .

Check every single keyboard key. you should find "F" in blue. . .

I just bought an Acer laptop andkeys are all different from desktop keyboard so wondering how I can find out what the keys are for without just hittin all of them. Are there specs available? Thankyou. Dee...


The symbols on the keys represent what will appear on screen

If the symbol is in blue that means you have to press the FN key over on the left side bottom row

Other symbols from the keyboard are typed by using the shift key

You can always buy a keyboard and plug it into the laptop if it proves to difficult

FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
