The keyboard setting does not match the hardware keyboard you have. Various countries have keyboards where these marks are located on the same keys as others. In Control Panel there are the Regional settings (language etc.) for each language used you specify which keyboard setting you wish to use.

What is undefined string


I suspect you got this error during the compilation or execution of a program. If that is not the case, disregard what I am rambling on about .
A string is a set of printing characters (letters, numbers, punctuation signs). In some programming languages a string variable can be defined. Once you define a variable as a string, you can store a string in it.
Depending on the language the string must be enclosed between quotation marks or some other separators. As for other variables, string variables have to be defined before they can be called.
Go to the location where the error occurred and check your inputs, arguments you feed to functions, etc.

The symbols on my Dell L100 Keyboard do not work consistently in MS Word. Today I cannot get the quotation marks to work. The other day the question mark didn't work. It seems to only effect the ones...


It seems like you may have a strange language setting for your keyboard. Try going to Control Panel, and selecting language. It should look similar to this: snowyrat_1.jpg
There should be a tab labled something to the effect of "Change Keyboards or Other Input Methods." Select that, and then select "Change Keyboards" You'll get a menu that looks something like this: snowyrat.png
Select "Add" and scroll down to "English (United States)" Select "US(Default)" and click ok. Select US as your keyboard, and the problem should be fixed. If that's not the problem, then it may be a setting in MS Word. Hope this helps!

How do i calculate cos 30°24'


You must first set angle unit to degree.
Press the [MODE] key a certain number of times until you get to a screen that displays Deg Rad Grad. Press number key 1 to select degree.
Once this is done you can calculate trigonometric functions. To enter angles in DMS you have a key marked with degree symbol, a quotation mark, and a double quotation mark. In what follows that key is represented as DMS.

To calculate cos(30 deg 24')
[COS] 30 [DMS] 24[DMS] [=]

If you get an error message you will have to enter the seconds even if the value is 0
[COS] 30 [DMS] 24[DMS] 0 [DMS] [=]

How to make question mark and at keys


If you are hitting Shift and the number 2 and getting a quotation mark instead of the @ sign....then your keyboard is not set up for the United States. Go to control panel > regional and language settings > go through all tabs and buttons and make sure they all say either (United States) or English - (United States). Always hit apply after each setting reboot when finished with all. Make sure the location and english (united States) keyboard is added.
