I have the right side of my keyboard that will not enter the backslash..it gives me letters with a little deally on top....I want to get the backslash working...do not need more letters.....I am trying to install a security program...soon...
omg....same thing happened to me and I spent an hour googling this issue.
my alpha keys would bring up numerical and/or punctuation. for example, letter "i" would type "5".
How many people have had this problem??
Simple simple SIMPLE answer folks. Are ya ready??
On your Vaio laptop keyboard...upper right hand side of keys....there is the 'Num Lk Scr Lk' button. Simply unclick this so that the light goes out. This keyboard does not require the 'num lock' as regular usb style k/boards do...since there is no right hand numerical keypad.....
Feel free to smack your foreheads at will... I know I did.
Ok, so I know about NUMLOCK. but here is a slightly different challenge and it driving me NUTS!!!
In word 2007 (Vista) the appropriate 'green' character works...e.g. the question mark and the back slash. BUT in Outlook I am SUDDENLY getting the 'pink' characters and CANNOT get the green question mark. What is happening???? Please help!!
I have tried every combination of FN, Alt Car, Num Lk, Control, Shift...you name it. Am at my WITS END!!
OK What you need to do is play with ctrl shif and ctrl shif Fn on the bottem right side of the key bor as well as the number lock button at the top left corner. Just fiddle around with these two, you will get how they work with some practice. It was my understanding that alt car was a compleatly different fuction. Probably something to do with suffing the net and manipulating programs with out a mouse.
