Get Ee when trying to type foreward slash


Blue functions are common now but usually only on laptops. They are accessed via a blue button normally labelled Fn down in the left corner near CTRL and SHIFT. Hold the Fn button and press the desired button to acheive the function.

How can I dim my screen?


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

My friend has a Toshiba A135-S2346 laptop and the screen has gone out. It sounds like it's still loading and what not, but when I try to hook it up to a desktop monitor, I still get nothing.


Hi,
You have hooked up the external desktop monitor BEFORE booting up the laptop I'm assuming? That needs to be done first of all.
Secondly - find a button on your laptop that looks like two small screens or boxes that look like screens. They are probably drawn on top of your number keys (123456789 etc). You should have a button down in your left corner of your keyboard called FN? Hold in that button and press the number key that has the icon of those "screens" or "boxes". This will toggle turning on an external display vs. the internal display or both depending on how many times you press the number key while holding down the FN key.
Please let us know how this works out.
Thanks,
Kaj

Hello. I have just bought an Acer Aspire 6920 Laptop. The problem is when i need the @ symbol I get the " symbol and visa versa. I have selected United Kingdom as my keyboard layout. What's going on?


Hello Bobster079,

Here is a couple of things to try:

1) Get into the Bios and set it to default setting (may be F9 button), then save setting. Then reboot and try.

if this does not work, then move in to next step.

2) Hold down and press the "fn" button and press the "Scroll Lock" button. This works like a toggle switch.

Hope this is helpfull and good luck.

Laptop keyboard on lifebook c, replace or fix


It looks like you answered your own question - you really can't fix a laptop keyboard, but you can replace them. (or you can use an external keyboard)

Now is your problem:?
Letters qwert, asdfg, zxcvbn work OK but uiop displays as 456/ jkl displays as 123 and m displays as 0. Other keys also do not display correctly. Or holding the function key down at the same time as the problem keys ?

Then the solution is:
The problem was caused by accidentally pressing the num lock key. Once pressed, it remains locked even after a reboot. Pressing again returns the keyboard to normal.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE VOLUME UP ON MY TOSHiBA LAPTOP.


On your keyboard is a special key with the letters Fn on it. It has a particular color. Also on your keyboard usually on the Page up and Page down keys should be speaker icons in the same color as the Fn keytop. Also nearby the Page Up Page Down key and usualy the end key is a speaker icon with a line through it.

You press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the Page up Page down or the actual keys that have the speakers on them. To mute or unmute you press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the key that has the speaker with the line through it.

That should give you keyboard control over your speakers.

Additionally, if you double click the speaker icon next to the time display you will bring up the controls for all volumes on your laptop. Check to see that wave is not muted and master is nearly all the way up, the wave scale should be one tick short of the top. For CD Audio, you will want to do the same with that volume slider.

Any other questions just use the comment box to ask.

Worldvet

I have just bought my son a laptop,i cant get connected to my live box it says the wireless is on but the light is not on also on the keyboard i have to hold the fn button down to use the letters m j k l u...


Have a look at the F keys at the top of the keypad. The fn key is a toggle key. It changes the mode to something and then back again when you press it. There will be an F key with a picture of a keyboard on it (probably) (Dont press the one with the the picture of a computer on or your screen will go off)
Press fn and the keyboard Fkey together to toggle back to alpha keyboard rather than numeric.
