Question about Acer Aspire 5735 Notebook

1 Answer

Periodically the keyboard gets changed to the "green" keys.

Sometimes I can no longer type an @ or ? and the "green" stuff comes up instead. I have to reboot.
What am I doing wrong? and
How would I access the green keys anyways?

    I tried to use the Alt Car button to the right of the space bar and nothing happens...I would have thought that it would get me into the green stuff.
    The mystery continues

It's possible that the 'ALT GR' ("alternate graphic") key, just to the right of the space-bar, is "stuck" in the "down" position, and thus you get the "alternate" characters.

    Press the 'ALT GR' key -- do not release it yet.

    Press the '2' key.

    Release the 'ALT GR' key.



    What is displayed?



    Or, within the Windows 'Control Panel', open 'Regional and Language Options' and be sure that you are using the 'English-US' "input-method" for your keyboard.

If you're on Windows then try pressing CTRL+SHIFT keys together (sometimes ALT+SHIFT, see which combination works for you) until your keyboard layout indicator in your system's notification area (bottom right part of your screen, just left of system clock) shows the keyboard layout code that you're used to, in your case "EN". You can cycle through all the installed keyboard layouts using this same key combination.

If the spacebar on the keyboard isn't there (with .com and underscore keys etc instead), you're in the URL-typing keyboard instead of the normal one. Try clicking the @ icon in the bar just above the keyboard to change modes. In handwriting mode, it's the same thing...click the @ icon near the left side of the bottom bar.

Apple key no longer working


The Kensington keyboard is being recognised as a PC-style keyboard, and the software has swapped the action of Apple (Command) and Alt (Option). Go to System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse, and set the Modifier keys correctly in the Keyboard panel.
