Keyboard is input device and is used to give input to a computer. Keys are the buttons on the keyboard. Keys on keyboards are divided into four groups; Function keys, the Typewriter Area, Numeric keys and Cursor keys. There are 12 function keys on the top of keyboard. These keys are marked as F1, F2, F3 ….F12. All function keys have predefined meanings which depend on the application software. Typewriter area consists of numeric keys, symbol keys alphabetic keys, and special function keys. There are 26 alphabetic keys in typewriter area. English alphabets are marked on alphabet keys in capital letter. There are 14 numeric keys in typewriter area. With these digits are some special symbols on the top of digits. This part of typewriter area has 21 keys of symbols. Some symbol keys are combined with numeric keys. We can write these symbols by pressing symbol key plus shift key. There are different symbols such as @, #, $, %, * etc. in last part of typewriter area there are special function keys. There are 11 special function keys. Theses keys are arranged on keyboard like typewriter and behave like standard typewriter. The numeric key pad has 17 keys and is easy to use for operator.

For a specific question on the keyboard funtions write back and we will go from there.

I don't understand the function keys on my equus nobilis laptop don't work, please help me.


In the bottom-left corner of your keyboard, you'll see a key labeled "Fn". You must hold that key down while pressing the "F10" key or any other Function key to activate the Function.

I don't understand why the function keys on nobilis equus computer doesn't work?


Please install / update keyboard drivers from the manufacturer website.

If the function keys are indicated in different color, you may need to use a key combination to make them work. Please mention full make and model so that I can help further.

Hi wa33ban2hart

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

That should resolve your problem.

I hope this helps.

What are the names of kyboard and its keys ?


it is only for a computer keyboard hope it help from you.

A computer keyboard serves as a main operating tool for accessing and inputting data into a computer. The keyboard features many functions and keys that a user may never use, but is still essential to some users. Understanding the keyboard can improve computer knowledge and use.

QWERTY Pad

The "QWERTY" pad is main sections of letters on the keyboard. These letters are mainly used for typing and also as shortcuts in programs like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe After Effects and computer games.
Number Pads

The far right side of the keyboard features a number pad that resembles a calculator. This number pad is essential for programs like Excel, but can also be used to input numbers as a typing function. More numbers are just above the "QWERTY" keyboard that also feature symbols when the "Shift" button is used.
Arrow Keys

The right bottom of a keyboard features four directional arrow keys. These keys provide navigation through word processing documents and also serve as scrolling functions in web browsers.
F Bar

The top of a keyboard features the "F Keys," a selection of keys that extends to "F12" on most keyboards. These keys serve different functions. For example, "Alt and F4" exits out of a program. "F1" will start the typing helper in word processing programs.
Extra Keys

New keyboard feature shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. These include shortcuts like "Power," "Sleep Mode," "Calculator," "My Computer" and "Web." Some also include media controls for movies and music.

How do I turn on my backlit keyboard on my dell with windows vista?


Hi,

Sorry for the last answer. The expert probably didn't understand your question.

If you have purchased the optional backlit keyboard, the right-arrow key will have the backlit keyboard icon on it. The backlit keyboard provides visibility in dark environments by illuminating all symbols on the keys. The settings for this keyboard can be personalized by using
Dell QuickSet.

Backlit Keyboard Brightness Settings – Press <Fn> + right-arrow key to toggle between the three lighting states (in the given order).
The three lighting states are:
a. full keyboard/touch pad brightness
b. half keyboard/touch pad brightness
c. no lighting

Hope this helps. If you need the manual for this computer, it is located here:

Keyboard problems


It's your numlock that's on. It's for using your laptop as an adding machine like function. Do you see that certain letters also have numbrs on yr keyboard. Do you also see that theres the word numlock on one key. That's the key for turning on numlock ( in conjunction with the function key) so you can use those keys as an adding machine. Usually to turn numlock off and on you hold one finger on the function key and toggle the numlock key to turn it on and off. Consult your toshiba user guide for your particular model.
