Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Blue key activation

\015 I have a compaq presario Cq50 and I accidentally turn the blue (french symbol keys on and off). Can you tell me how I am activating the blue keys?\015

Answers :

This problem with the blue keys occurs when the input language is not set to the desired language. On my computer, I have the option of using either US, Canadian (international I think), and French Canadian. When this option is set to French Canadian, the blue keys are activated. To switch this off, one must change the language settings. If you press the F1 key at the top left of the keyboard, a help menu will come up. Type in language toolbar, which should bring up the language toolbar (overview) help index. Notice the picture of the language bar, as this is what it looks like. Either this is somewhere on your screen now, or more likely, it is minimized at the bottom right hand of your screen, and shown as one of the icons. The icon will be a picture of a keyboard, that is more toward the left of the group of icons that are at the bottom right corner of the page. Click on this icon, and select the wanted language. US and Canadian will both disable the blue keys, but Canadian French will activate them.
\015\012To completely rid this problem from ever happening, click on show the language bar, then go to options, then settings, and remove the Canadian French language. Better yet, do as I did, and also remove the other Canadian option, and just leave the US language, or vice versa, and leave just the Canadian option. This will eliminate the possibility of the blue keys becoming activated, and lock a single language in, to avoid any type of future problem with these type of keys.
\015\012Finally, a nice quick way to change languages (and most likely the way we accidentally trigger another language, and cause this problem in the first place) is by simply pressing the control and shift keys together. This is a shortcut to change the input language, which we likely hit by accident, then are clueless as to how to turn it off.
\015\012I hope this helps!
