First, if there is no Euro symbol then this isn't a European keyboard, or it was made before the Euro was introduced, which I believe is the issue in this case, and there's nothing that can be done to get the Euro into the system. As far as the function key is concerned, you may need to do a bios flash or update in order to restore the function key features. Do the flash/update and get back to me.

Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

IBM T30 wireless and graphis driver


it might be that your wireless is not activated or disabled. look for a key on your keyboard which has a wireless picture on it,then press that key with the Fn (function) key at the same time when you're on the desktop. or if it's still doesn't work,the network you try to connect is not available
for the video driver,you can download it here

I want to know how to use the function button


The function button, or FN button, is used just like the shift key or ctrl key. Hold the FN button down and press the key with the pre programmed function you desire to use. For instance, on an HP 1245 the function or short cut key to put the computer in sleep mode is FN+F5. The Keys with functions have that feature indicated by a symbol for the function in a squared circle. Most of these are your F keys at the very top row of the keyboard. Some are on the number pad keys.

There is no on screen display for Fn keys


Hello,
The Fn keys are usually used with other keys for different functions. Like it is used with the up arrow key to increase the brightness of your display. Fn alone doesn show up anything.
If you meant that Fn key along with other keys dint work, then reinstall your keyboard driver. This might help.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Ibm t30 keyboard stuck in odd mode


Hello,

You've activated Euro mode. This is toggled by pressing holding the Fn key plus an Fkey that has an icon in the same color as the lettering on the Fn key that looks like the Euro symbol. Press the Fn key plus the Euro key to toggle out of Euro mode.
