Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My keyboard was working properly, then by accidently pushing a key repeatedly, a window popped up asking a few questions with check boxes asking to swap something around, i did not read it properly and accidently changed one of the settings around, and applied the setting. The number keys along the top & along the side, stopped working, and every key when pushed would be followed by a clicking noise from the PC. I have not been able to find that window again to put the setting back to the way it was , thus making the pc usless to use.

I am having trouble to set an e-mail becouse the key @ not popping up but the 2 commas do. can you help me? I am using other computer to ask this question.

Your keyboard is most likely set to the wrong layout, as in it's set as US for a UK keyboard, or vice versa. These keyboard layouts have those two keys the other way around.
To fix, go to Control Panel and find the 'Region and Language' settings (assuming Windows Vista or Windows 7). Click the 'Keyboards and Languages' tab and click the 'Change Keyboards' button.
Click on the 'Add' button on the right and find "English (United Kingdom/States) depending on which layout you have (UK layout has the 'two commas' above the 2) Click the + symbol next to the layout you want and then again next to 'Keyboard'. Click the check box next to the keyboard layout you have (click 'Preview' to check) and then click OK. From the dropdown list in the dialogue, you should now be able to select the correct keyboard layout. Select it and OK out both dialogue boxes.
You should now be typing with the correct keyboard layout.

Keyboard doesn't work properly

Turn on your computer, go to the control panel, if you are using Windows XP, click on switch to classic control panel" and then go to Accessibility Options. There is a keyboard tab that the settings can be changed to help people with disabilities operate their keyboards better but if you hold down certian keys for more than a few seconds, Windows XP will activate these settings. Sounds like your son accidently turned on "FilterKeys" There is a check box on the Keyboard tab of Accessibility Options that turns off FilterKeys. If "Use FilterKeys" is checked, uncheck that box and then click "OK" and see if that helps.

Good Luck!
