Grandchildren playing on computer/keyboard and now have no sound did they turn something off?


With some multimedia keyboards, it's easy to mute or turn down the volume from the keyboard. Many Systemax systems ship with this type of keyboard. The volume controls are usually at the top of the keyboard or on the right or left side of the keyboard.

However, since there are a number of different styles of multimedia keyboards, I'm not sure which key you would need to find. Look for a key with the speaker symbol (looks like a megaphone). Also look in the bottom right corner of the computer screen for the same symbol. If there is a red circle with a line, then the mute has been enabled. Otherwise, it may be that the volume was reduced. With a mouse it's easy to change the setting; just left click on that symbol in that section of the notification bar.

In some cases, speakers do fail. So if changing the volume doesn't work, try a different set of speakers.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your keyboard or Systemax computer model if you need additional assistance.

Sounds like your keyboard drive is not set right. Do you have a special keyboard with programmable functions? Try changing your keyboard driver. Google your keyboard model + drivers and see if one comes up you can download. Then replace current driver and see if that resolves your issue. It's not a laptop is it? If so, that's another matter.

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

Compaq laptop can't get the ? symbol


Hi,

Looks like the French keyboard mapping is still in effect.
You can try changing the keyboard keys back to where they were by pressing:

Left CTRl + left Shift at the same time. then try typing the ?/ key. You may have to try this a couple of times to get it to work.

If it does work, try the right ctrl/left shift key.

Also found this:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Keyboards and Languages,
Change Keyboards. Select the keyboard you that's causing you grief and
choose Remove.

If you don't remove the keyboard map, when this switch happens, you'll have
to exit the application you're in (Outlook, for example), change keyboards,
and restart the app. Changing keyboards without restarting the app doesn't
seem to change the mapping.

Hope this helps!

How do I use the third symbol on the key underneath the Esc key on a keyboard? I know how to use ¬ and ` but not the third (a vertical line)


Usually a third symbol on a key will require the holding of another key to apply that symbol as when holding the shift key to go upper case and what not. But the third the symbol is usually a different color and the key to press to access that symbol is the same color as the symbol is. Such as with many laptop keyboards the FN key (usually at the bottom left side of the keyboard) is a bluish color and pressing it is required to apply the blueish symbols on keys.
I hope this helps.
