How do I type extended characters on my laptop? On a desktop I get the extended characters using 0175. On teh laptop, the top numberic keys do nto return any values.


Answers :

There should be a key on your laptop that enables NUMLOCK.
\015\012Some of the keys on the keyboard, on the right upper side, should also have numbers on them. When numlock is enabled, you can use the ALT code using these numbers, and it should work.

Hi! I have a Sony Vaio VGN FW250j. The laptop worked just fine one day then the next, I noticed that certain keys (1,2,Q,W,S,Z)would not type in the certain characters when needed.
