What are the legal characters to ask a question on fixya?


Legal characters are characters which are accepted when posting on the Fixya website. If you are receiving an error about illegal characters it means you are using characters found on the keyboard (such as symbols) that Fixya does not accept. This can sometimes be caused when copy/pasting from word processing software which can insert incorrect commas, apostrophes, or even hidden characters.

Make sure to type your question directly into the box and make sure to try and avoid strange symbols or characters.

Hope that helps, but if you continue to have problems you can always contact the Fixya Support Team to receive additional help.

My laptop is entering more than one character at a time when typing in my password for example its adding additional letters how can i turn this off


seems like something is ring with the keyboard, try an external keyboard, if the issue is still the same this will be a windows issue, once in windows tap on the shift key 5 times this will either deactivate sticky keys or ask you to activate sticky keys.
If it is not a sticky key setting issue then the problem most likely will be Hardware, did any liquid spill on your keyboard previously causing the key to malfunction causing the key to type extra characters?
If none then possible this is a faulty keyboard on the machine.

My laptop keyboard not working normally, keys not display the keys i want to type, display the other character on the keyboard...my laptop model ASUS eee PC 1001


Hello,

This is because you have Num Lk activated.
To deactivate, hold down the Fn key and press NumLk (it's the same key as insert)

Now you will have the normal characters when typing.

Dear Sir , If you start copying a Class 10 / 11


I understand the pain and how difficult it is to work on a science document!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way if you are using the office suite applications such as Word 2007 or word 2010, you can insert the symbols easily.
To insert a symbol or special character into your document, follow these steps in Word 2007:
1. Position the cursor where you would like to insert the symbol or character
2. Open the Insert ribbon
3. Click Symbol in the Symbol section
4. A menu will appear with a small selection of symbols
5. If you don't see the symbol or character you'd like to insert, click More Symbols
6. Use the controls to select between symbols and special characters. Additional tools on the symbols tab will help you expand or narrow your selection
7. When you find your symbol or special character, click it and then click Insert
8. When you're done, click Close
The symbol or special character will appear at the appropriate place in your document.
Hope this helps!!!

Well, I am helpless regarding developing a keyboard with all those scientific symbols,.LOL

Cannot find £ symbol on my keyboard, when selected it gives #


Make sure you have selected the right keyboard type and language.
Go to control panel, Regional and language options > and select the appropriate language (for e.g: United States (English), click on Languages Tab and select the Keyboard as English (United States) Keyboard, You should be able to get the "#" by pressing Shift and Number "3"

Alternatively you can use the Virtual keyboard by pressing the Windows button (located next to the Ctrl) and "u" , Or you can type "osk" in Start > Run.


Please get back to me for any further assistance.

Asus X58Cseries with Windows Vista Basic has $ sign on 4 key but no pound sign. Any way of getting it? If not, I can live with it but would like to know either way.Cheers, Linda.


I'm an Asus X58C user in the UK and my keyboard is the same. I've not found an easy solution. The only way I can insert a £ character is this. Place your coursor where you want the character. Turn Numbers Lock on using the blue Fn and NumLk keys. Hold down the Alt key and then using the blue numbers keys type 0163. Release the Alt key and the £ character will appear. Turn Numbers Lock off using the blue Fn and NumLk keys again. Its laborious but it works, its how I typed it here. I also found out that if you hold down Ctrl and Alt and then press the 4 key, you type the euro character €. Hope this helps

My keyboard will not delete the character after the cursor location with the insert key???


You are correct. It deletes the character the cursor is on. Unclick insert and use the delete key to delete characters after the cursor.

Extra characters display when key pressed


Check the NumLock Key. If your keyboard isn't typing the correct characters, you may have the incorrect input language selected. Many laptops will convert most of the keyboard into a number pad if NumLock is enabled. Press Num Lock + Function or Function then NumLock to make sure its disabled.

Cheers!
