  1. Some laptop keyboard keys display a different value - eg. @ as "


    I noticed this today 9.11.2019 and have tried to change the language, but did not help. I work in Eng UK mode, but my keyboard may be Eng US - the @ is on the 2 key. Other keys gone wrong are: Tilda is now ¬ ; hast sign is now £ .

    As a writer I need my keys to be in the right place - please help.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Laptop Keyboard Keys Acting Strange

    Hi,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the keyboard on your PC. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to plug in an external keyboard to the laptop to check if that helps.

    Further you may also use the onscreen keyboard to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps to launch the On-screen keyboard:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “osk” and hit enter to launch the On-screen keyboard and check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.

  3. Key values have switched on two keys

    Hi Ennoh,

    With regard to your question about keyboard layout, the main differences between a US and UK keyboard are the following:

    • An Alt-Gr key is added to the right of the space bar.
    • The @ and are swapped.
    • The ~ is moved to the # key, and is replaced by a
      ¬ symbol on the back quote (`) key.
    • The \ key is moved to the left of the Z key.
    • The Enter key spans two rows, and is narrower to accommodate the #
      key.
    • On laptop computers, the | and \ key is often placed next to the space bar.

    Meanwhile, let us walk you through on how to add a keyboard layout in Windows 10. Follow the steps below:

    • Click on the Start Menu.
    • Click on Settings.
    • Select Time & language and click on Region & language.
    • Under Language, click on Windows display language and select
      Options.
    • Click on Add a keyboard.
    • Choose the keyboard layout you want to add or use.

    From there, you can now go back to your previous keyboard layout.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Laptop display question

    Confusing statement! You want to change the display on your laptop that died?

    Is that correct?

    How do you know its the display that's bad?

    Just google "how to change display on a acer 5745"

    Should get you to step by step instructions. But first make sure its the display that's bad
