Keyboard


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

I want to know how to use control letters in the pad


Press them and find out, keep in mind that all functions on any IBM standard keyboard are enabled. You can also go to the HP factory support site and use the search window to pose the question by specific model number.

The r is repeating


Seems like there's some dirt in there. Try one of those compressed air in the can specifically designed for cleaning computer keys. If that doesn't work, you'll need to take the key out. By the way, the "r" didn't repeat in your post!

One key on my acer 5535 not working the letter that comes after abc! will use # in place of that letter. nothing happens when press it an there #oesnt seem to be anything stuck un#er it. only stoppe#...


pop the key off using your fingernail, and underneath there should be a small rubber boot that actually makes the contact when the key is pressed. it's possible that it has moved (they're usually glued on) try and realign the boot and put the key back on. if it's not that, it's possible that the key simply does not work. if that's the case you'll have to replace the keyboard.

Activation of the number pad so instead of letters, numbers are appearing. still need to press the Fn key to get the desired letter.


Hi, try pressing the numlock key - this should put the number pad as standatd until it is pressed again, when it will revert to letters.

Letter keys are stuck on numbers don't know how to change them bo


Hold the "Fn" key down while pressing "F9" key, subtitled "Padlock" (!!) - is equivalent to NUM LOCK nomenclature used on most computers. Note - Repeating above resets number pad to ON.

If that doesn't work for you something is malfunctioning as far as I know.

Fn key wont turn off


OK, I've found a soliution! :) I've been diging the internet and many people are having the same problem, so it is a common problem however the soliution is very simple (in my case). The thing is that laptops does not has a saparated Num Pad, and numbers can be found on keys under F1-F12 row or/and (active with Fn key) on alphabetic keys uiopjkl;m/ and so on. But if there is a NumLk key on your keyboard, you can lock the Num Pad on alphabetic keys. Then you have to hold Fn key pressed to write letters.  Find the NumLk key and try to turn off the Num Pad :)
On my laptop (Acer extensa 5120) NumLk key is on F11 and active when Fn is depressed.
Hope this wil help :)

Hp dv8000 keybpoard problem


Hello! am Fabian,
problem.
every time i press a letter another letter shows up the space bar ...

solution.
first, be show to check if any other key is down, if not, dust your keyboard/pad to make sure the keys are free. if you problem remains, its likely your keyboard may be moist. you have to dry it by opening/ exposing it internal circuitry's to a dry air for some hours then close it up and test. if this did not work, it means you will need to replace your keyboard/pad.

when drying do not expose to direct sun light. if you have to replace the keyboard/pad buy an exart from your system manufacturer if you can.

i hope this information will be helpful.
Thanks.
