Are these the only keys that are interchanged? if so you can use a flat screw driver to pup out the keys and re-seat them... otherwise it's more cost effective to buy a new one.

Why have ive lost the function to use the at key


Hi Diane Andrews

You stated as you have lost the @ function on your keyboard . And by looking at your DP i suppose its a laptop . Well then if so you might need to reset the keyboard layout settings for your laptop . Different OS has its different settings . You might have changed your language settings which may or might have caused it . Steps on how to its here . But if you have lost the @ key itself then ... you might need to get it change at your nearest computer repair shop or bring it to the vendor . Or maybe for time being you can use the on screen keyboard

CLick start - under the search - type On screen Keyboard and select it to use it .

Basic .. Fix an external keyboard and try if it works on that keyboard . If it does then your laptop keyboard might be at fault or need to change the settings .

Method 1 of 3: Changing the Language Settings (Windows)

If your keyboard is not displaying the correct characters when you press keys, your language settings may have gotten changed. If you have the incorrect region selected, your keyboard will act differently. To change it back, open the Control Panel.

You can access the Control Panel from the Start menu. Windows 8 users can right-click on the Windows button and select Control Panel from the menu

Open the Language settings. How you access this depends on which version of Windows you are using.

Windows 8 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Languages".

Windows Vista and 7 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change keyboards and other input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Region and Language" and then click the "Keyboards and Languages" tab. Click the Change keyboards... button.

Windows XP - select "Regional and Language Options", click the Languages tab, and then click Details..

Select your language. Use the menu to select the default input language you want to use. In Windows Vista and 7, select your preferred language from the "Default input language" drop-down menu. In Windows 8, move your preferred input language to the top of the list.

Hi I have just tried to set up my son's ocean netbook. I seem to have locked the keyboard somehow!! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


Locked as in it doesn't accept input? Some laptops will have physical buttons on them for disabling the touchpad and keyboard. Please list the make and model if you need further help.

Thanks

Power windows. When I push the "up button, is just goes click, click, click. Could I need a new wire harness? Can I fix it myself?


Okay, this happened to my car about 5 times. I replaced the switch each time. take the switch out and save your self 65 dollars. Look at the wiring, usually one of the wires is loose. It is not on the switch itself, but under the plug that goes into the switch... Its worth trying instead of wasting money at the dealership, I think they are no help!

Keyboard keys are messed up....any thing you type differnt letters pop.


You probably have the wrong country listed in your keyboard layout.  Each country has a different keyboard layout, as some languages need frequent access to accents and special characters.

I'm presuming you have Windows; and I don't know which version, so I can only give general instructions on how to fix it:

In Control Panel, there's a setting for 'regional settings' or 'region & language'...something like that.  Click on it.  In there somewhere is 'input settings' or 'keyboard settings'.  Change this to the country you got the keyboard from.

For example, I'm English & living in Spain.  So I loaded an English version of Windows, but I have to set it to 'Spanish keyboard' as I bought the laptop in Spain and the keys on the keyboard are in the Spanish configuration.

Hope that helps.

Need freon recharge. punctures freezer coil in


You punctured the aluminum evaporator . In the many years I've been in refrigeration , I have yet to find any way to patch a hole in the evaporator . I've used epoxy , solder , and all different advertised ways to try to patch aluminum . Nothing worked ( for long anyway ) . My suggestion would be to buy another refrig . You will be wasting time and money trying to " fix " this problem . To repair it yourself , you have to have a license to buy R12 , maybe you can buy R134A without a license , you have to look on the " modell , serial number tak to see which it uses and how much to use . Also , the system has to evacuated ( all air removed from the lines ) . Do you have a vacuum pump ? You have to buy a solder on connector ( or saddle valve which WILL leak eventually unless you get a solder on valve ) which will connect to the larger tubing on the compressor or use the access line already on the compressor but is pinched off . Do you have guages for the refrigerant type you need to use ? Once you have these things , reply back and myself or someone else will help you procede .

The keyboard characters does not correspond to what appears on sc


Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.

Can't type


sounds to me that the port is having transmission issues reporting back to the mother board.
try an alternative keyboard input to the one that you are trying, failing that try a different socked device, the older keyboards are ps/2 (round socket) if that is what you are using then try using a USB keyboard, the usb keyboards have a faster report timer than the older ps/2 keyboards.

hope this helps.

Gateway ma3 keyboard problem


The problem seems to be that the pressure pad underneath the key is stuck on the "activated" position. Taking the keyboard out would not affect the position of the pressure pad. Also attaching a USB key board will not make any difference since the original keyboard is still electrically connected and has priority over any external plug n play devices. A new set of keyboard pressure pads should solve this. I suggest taking it to your local computer repair centre.
