Look at the top keys on the laptop. There are icons under the main key. One of them would be the num lock icon. You would be pressing the Fn key then that key to unlock it.

Please respond if you need further assistance

Somehow I have enabled the scroll lock on my Studio 1537. There is no scroll lock key so what keys together will unenable the scroll lock.


It should be on one of your function keys you might have to use your FN button which when you find the scroll lock on the function key ( press and hold the FN button which is located bottom left side of the keyboard and then press the function key that the scroll lock is on )

Where is the number lock on this keyboard?


As with most laptops there is no number lock key. you dont have the number pad like most desktop keyboards. you have a (fn) key this works for all the keys that have a square around them it may be blue/white/purple, and is located on the bottom left should be the second key on the bottom left row right next to the ctrl key. but once again there is no number lock key.

I am typing and I get numbers instead of letters. Is there something I can change


Hi,

You have accidentally turned the Num Lock on.

Now depending on the model there are a couple of ways to turn it back off.

1, just hit the Num Lock key and see if its off (type something)
2, Hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key, again type something.




Regards.

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.

Laptop keyboard is not working correctly


Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop
