Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

How do i disable the f keys


Hi There,
After a few hours of research, it looks like the function or F keys under windows are pre-programmed and there's not a whole lot you can do to change it. There are, however, a few options:
Keymapping software: Usually ships with (and free to download) logitech or other gaming keyboards. The software allows you to reprogram any key on your keyboard to do what you want it to.
Hold down Fn+F11, while still holding F11 let go of Fn. Some laptop users have reported that this turns off Fn keys. Also, Holding down Fn+Scroll lock or Fn+Num lock in the same fashion has had varied results.

How brighten the screen?


Look on your keyboard on the "f" keys (f1, f2, etc...) for a symbol that looks like a sun or shining light. Something that would indicate brightness. Now, hold down the 'fn' (function) key on the bottom left of your keyboard and then press the backlight key you just found.

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key


HI,
If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps

Where can i find the volume adjustment control?


There is a Button on your keyboard that has blue lettering that is stated "Fn" without quotes. HOLD this button down, and then press the buttons on the RIGHT SIDE of the keyboard UP TOP where there are pictures of speakers with arrows going UP and DOWN. this will help in lowering and raising the volume.
So HOLD DOWN the Fn Key and then PRESS the VOLUME key you Want.

Hope this helps.

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.
