Hi, Is there any way to change the media player keys to work with other applications besides Windows Medai Player? I use JetAudio and would love to have the play/pause, stop, forward and backward buttons function with JetAudio. Thanks, Henry

I'm not familiar with JetAudio, however in most media players you can choose for that to be the default player. I would make sure it is your default player first and then try to use it with the keyboard. The instruction manual only mentions compatibility with Windows Media Player though so it just may not work.

How do I assign acer keyboard SK-9625 function keys?

tell why you do this?
tell the story,
i guess by the word ASSIGN, you mean to change how they work?
from normal, stock methods and how ACER designed your PC?

no PC stated or OS
this is MM keyboard from ACER, USB keyboard
yes, they do make macro keyboards, that allow one to have custom keykeys, or even generate strings of key presses.
why not RTM on this keyboard.

did just buy the keyboard used, and not with the PC it came with?
that it?
best i can tell Acer does not sell this keyboard, all by self.
so no books for it.
if you want to use it beyond what it can do or to use advanced features off this limited keyboard. find the PC it came with.

no PC stated
no OS stated
and only vague Function key questions, to do what. what is the end goal, and unstated.


Function keys 101.
there are BIOS hot keys that work just powered on to operate
custom BIOS features,
then there is F8 for the non windows 10 PCs, that can go to safemode. before, the OS runs.
Then the OS runs after login,
then the OS uses hot keys, there.
for sure on laptops, laptops have lots of special Function keys..
even for wifi, and volume sound, and more.
this takes working drivers in the laptop to do that. custom to that PC and that PC only.
and more, lots more.... but no goals stated or even hinted.

What do the f keys mean

The 'f' keys at the top of the keyboard are known as 'function keys' - they have special functions inside a program, an application or in your operating system. They can be pressed alone or in combination with other keys, as 'ALT', "CTRL', 'SHIFT' or 'Fn' keys, to present other functions.

In Windows, F1 generally brings you the Help for the program you're on, F3 gives you the Search box, F5 refreshes the page, F11 gives you a full page in Internet Explorer and so on. Most programs can be closed when you press the 'ALT' key together with F4.

So, inside each and every program, different functions can be attributed to the F-keys, providing you with different capabilities. For instance, you could search in Google for "Word function keys" to check how they were set up for Microsoft Word.

These keys, associated with the 'Fn' key in some laptop keyboards, can be used to increase or decrease the display brightness, start the Internet Explorer or the Media Player increase or decrease the sound volume, and even open the DVD player 'door' - it will depend of the characteristics of the different models of laptops.

Hope this helps!

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop

Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

HOW TO RESOLVE NONFUNCTIONAL KEYS ON MY NETBOOK?

Hi There,
Do you mean that the keyboard is not working as in, let's say the "enter" key doesn't function, or other keys do not function?
Or do you mean that there are specialized keys (usually media keys) on your netbook that don't seem to function?
If it's the latter, download the media keys application provided by the manufacturer here - http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=2262
If the former - purchase a new keyboard. Replacing a keyboard is fairly easy on netbooks and requires little to no skill other than unscrewing four to eight screws. - http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Acer-Emachines-eM350-EM-350-NAV51-NAV50-SERIES-NETBOOK-US-keyboard-/160655260194

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys

Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

What function do the keys along the top of the KG 0570 keyboard perform?

If you are talking about the special function keys, their function is determined by the program you are using. Normally, you won't use them. The exception is the F1 key which is universally used for "help."
