Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 17R laptop keyboard

Dell Inspiron 17R laptop keyboard

Greetings,
My laptops keyboard is a special one with up to five characters on a key. I can access the keys in normal mode with no problem but I can't access the extra characters. I have tried different key combo such as ctrl shift and many more
to no avail. Does the keyboard language choice have anything to do with it?

Appreciate the help

Norm
