Usually this means you are having a critical keyboard error. if its still under warentee then take it back but if not then just look for another keyboard for that model on ebay.

Alphabet keys displaying numeric


This happens when you have the Num Lk (Number Lock) key on and you have Pressed the FN Function key at the lower left hand portion of the keyboard. When this happens if you press the keys such as UIOJKLM you will key the numbers 4561230.

Turn your Num Lk off by pressing that key at the top of the keyboard.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

My mouse pad isnt working but a USB mouse is, tried to use Fn+F7 but didnt work. Any help?


Is there a function key on the laptop? (Fn usually blue ink) is there a key with the symbol that looks like mouse pad. Hold down Fn then the mouse pad key and that should enable the mouse pad.

As you have suggested the F7 key is the one for the mouse pad, and hasn't made any difference, have you somehow corrupted the drivers. You can download them from the acer website.

when did it last work, you cloud try a system restore. Remember to press Fn + F7 again and give it a moment to enable( just in case the last time you tried it, you turned the hardware off despite it's lack of functionality)

Where is the fn key on keyboard acer


Laptops have a Fn key in the lower left side, next to the CTRL key. Says Fn on it.
Desktops don't have a Fn key. They have special function keys along the top numbered F1 through F12.
The windows key is the one you find on desktops, and on laptops, in the same place, the key says Fn. They are not the same.

Function is not turning off


Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard . Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicating that the funtion keys are in use.

Cant find the number lock key on my acer 6920 laptop


I think for your laptop the number lock key is a second function... Try holding down the function (Fn) key and pressing the F11 key, hopefully that will turn your number lock on/off.
