If only those special-purpose keys are affected, you are probably missing a driver for them.
These keys are generally dependent on a little special software written by (or for) Acer whereas the common keys are read/controlled by a drive supplied by MicroSoft.

Go the the Acer website via this link and supply the info they require.
You should be able to download the latest drivers for your 5100.

I have a platinum keyboard, and am having trouble getting the cut/paste keys to work. Is there a switch or key press I am missing?


Cut and Paste controls for windows are via the control key.
i.e. Control+C copies the highlighted item.
Control+V pastes the item back into the current window.
Control+X Cuts the highlighted item (i.e. removes as well as copies it)

How do I turn on the wireless switch?


The Lenovo IdeaPad Y450-534 PC Notebook is supposed to have a wifi switch at the front right side of the laptop. If this button isn't available, then ot wil be a combination of the fn button and one of the Function keys. There is supposed to be a blue wi fi icon on the Function key. On a Toshiba it would be F8.

How do I screen shot from my hp elitebook if I am running windows vista?


You need to press PrtScr or Print Screen button to capture the screen to the clip board. I believe on your laptop you need to hold the fn key down to select it. On the bottom left of the keyboard is a key that has fn on it. Any key on your keyboard that has a second function will need the fn key to access this second key function. PrtScr button should be on the top row right hand side of the keyboard.

Hold down the fn key and press the PrtScr key and then you can paste it into a document or paint or whatever. The PrintScreen function works in versions of windows I have ever used, from Windows 3.11 for workgroups to Windows 8.

I right clicked on the desktop and it doesn't show the properties


Try activating the context menu with the keyboard using the Menu Key.
In computing, the Menu key or Application key is a key found on Microsoft Windows-oriented computer keyboards. It is typically found on the right side of the keyboard between the right Control key and Windows key (or between the right control key and right Alt key).
The key's primary function is to launch a context menu with the keyboard rather than with the usual right-mouse button. The key's symbol is a small icon depicting a cursor hovering above a menu. This key was created at the same time as the Windows key. The Menu key can be used when the right-mouse button is not present on a mouse.

Hope this Helps

My screen went completly dark and when i took it to a repair place they said it was a bad mother board, thing is the lap to cuts on just fine but the screen is completly blank! HELP PLEASE


Try this, it may help.
There should be a Blue lettered function button on the lower left hand side of the keyboard (hard to see unless you are in a well lit room) .
Along the top row of keys, F1 through F12 there will be an equally hard to see blue graphic symbol depicting a laptop monitor and something that is supposed to represent a separate desktop monitor.
WHILE THE MACHINE IS UP AND RUNNING HOLD DOWN THE FUNCTION KEY AND PUSH THAT "MONITOR" KEY. THE SCREEN MAY POSSIBLY COME ALIVE. This one has stumped the experts before.
Worth a try.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

I have a Dell Latitude D600- 1.4 ghz Intel Pentium M, 40 GB hardrive, and my Volume control keys near the power button do not work. I have installed The Dell Quickset, but still it does not work. Please...


Do the Function keys work too or not? There are function keys that control the screen brightness, mute, volume, monitor swtiching etc.
If none of those keys work, download Dell's Utility software for the D600 here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R171887&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=3601&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=5&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=233742
If all of the function keys work, then you may need the "power board" under the keyboard. It's a little circuit board that controls volome, mute and power. Available for eBay sometimes.
Hope this helps!
