Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a new HP keyboard which seems to have three or four choices for upper and lower case. For instance, the number 6 key has a choice of 6 or ? or several other designs likw an arrowhead which I cannot seem to find out how to print. I have a key beside the spacebar which reads Alt Gr. This works on some of the keys but not on others. Can you tell me where I can find a tutorial for this keyboard. On the lower right hand side there is a label which reads hp.com slash ergo. See I can`t even find out how to work my slash key

Keyboards can have various functions for each key that are enabled by first pressing a modifier key. Some keyboards may have an Fn key that stands for 'Function' that are identified by a bluish-purple color.

You would have to hold down the Fn key before being able to use the corresponding function.

Other keys may have items that can only be used once you press the NmLk (Number Lock) key. Usually you only have to press the NmLk key once to enable these alternate functions and then press it again to disable.

Try using the Function key (Fn). Hold down function to get those other characters.
Also try shift + fn
Hope this helps.

Hp probook 4510s key board problem


You can try cleaning keyboard with a toothbrush, but with repairing computers for 15 years I find -
a) buy a USB keyboard
b) buy and install a new laptop keyboard (easy-ish install)
c) install Sharpkeys - a program that changes a key of your choice to act like something else (example # becomes K)

Hi,

That UP arrow refers to an UPPER CASE letter. If ever you press the CAPS LOCK key, it should turn off, if it does not it means the CAPS LOCK key for some reason is stuck. Try restarting the computer and by then the CAPS LOCK should be disabled.

Please let me know if it helped by selecting YES. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Your rating will help me succeed and continuously help a lot people.

On the Zippy keyboard and probably lots of others there are two methods of accessing different symbols on keys. other than the normal,caps lock and numlock options.

Holding either 'shift key' will type the upper symbols on key. holding 'alt Gr' key will type the 3rd symbol on a key if more than 2 on key. such as ` ¬ ¦

My laptop keyboard has optional "blue" upper and lower case letters and punctuation. how do i turn these on or off. they seem to work independently. i must be turning them on or off without knowing it.


Those keys with the Blue function keys only works when you press the Function Key together with it those keys in blue. . .

Check every single keyboard key. you should find "F" in blue. . .

I too have the lighted USB keyboard that stops working


I never purchased the idj2 USB keyboard. I went to Walmart and purched a $9 USB keyboard and have never had an issue ever. Of course if I were to ever get the flite case the keyboard I have would never fit in it. But they do sell backlit "rubber" indestructible" keyboard which might fit in the keyboard drawer of the hard case.
