If its the keys toward the right side of the keyboard and they are typing numbers instead of letters, you just need to turn off num lock.
You can do this by pressing your num lock button (might be Fn + numlock) or by plugging in a USB keyboard and pressing numlock. You can also use the on screen keyboard to change the setting in windows.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful, or reply with more specific details about the issue (brand, model, version of Windows, etc). Thanks!

Make sure NumLk is not on. The indicator for NumLk has a little lock icon with a 1 in the middle of it. The indicator is lit when NumLk is on. Also when NumLk is on the keys for U I O J K L and M will enter 4 5 6 1 2 3 0. These keys combined with 7 8 9 keys above them are the embedded keypad used for easier entry of all numeric data. How NumLk is turned on and off depends on the particular keyboard and computer. For Acer Aspire One, NumLk is turned on and off by pressing and holding the Fn key and then momentarily pressing the F11 key (the F11 key has NumLk printed just under the F11).

What must I do to get the calculator on my keyboard to work I have a Dell inspiron 1750 laptop and Viste Home edition software


Get latest Vista driver for your keyboard/laptop. The calc is just a mapped key on the keyboard that runs the macro "calc" in the command line. and you may be able to use 3d party key mapping software to reassociate certain keys to do certain macro commands.

Cant get the at button to work even by pressing shift or not,every other key function works.


You may have a bad key, or a key with something under it.
Try this:

Turn the netbook upside down so that the keysj face the floor.
Bang on the back side that way you would to burp a baby.
Then, take a vacuum cleaner and **** out the spaces between the keys.
If this doesn't work, you may have to make an @ symbol manually by using the ALT key. (ALT plus 64). This should work in most Word Processing programs.
  1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
  2. Depress the Alt key.
  3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
  4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.
  5. On a laptop computer, there usually is no numeric keypad. So, instead, depress the Fn (function) key, then the Alt key, then the numerical code sequence. The numbers are on the fronts of certain keyboard keys: M=0, J=1, K=2, L=3, U=4, I=5, O=6, 7=7, 8=8, and 9=9.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Certain keys won't function on keyboard


Could be that the connector from the keyboard to the mainboard is crooked. Try taking the keyboard off and wiggling the connector from the keyboard to the board so that it is a snugger fit.
