The F-keys are just keys. If they had proper meanings they would have glyphs assigned like @ or % or $ or R. If you want a cheat-sheet about the uses of the F-keys in various programs, take notes in a program or on paper and print a cheat-sheet out. It beats buying another screen just to display that info, epsecially with the number and variety of programs out there.

Within the scope of a certain BIOS or OS environment, e.g. the desktop or Microsoft Word in normal editing mode, they can have particular meanings. Accordingly, you can buy neat plastic templates that fit down in your keyboard (from Global Supply, or Corel, or various publishers and special interest groups) or office supply stores, and get some intuition on how to work more efficiently.

I hope I'm answering what you were wondering about!
You know, in Linux, a keyboard with multimedia volume control keys generally has to be set up so those keys mean something manually. On the other hand, you can set up stuff you really want done.

NUMBER LOCK
You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.

No signal message on my screen


That means your Monitor is not receiving a signal that it is connected to the computer. Make sure that the cable from the screen is in snuggly and tightened in the back of the computer. Also make sure that the other end of that cable is in tight on the back of the monitor.

If both are in good, then either your Monitor is bad or the Video Card in the computer is bad. If you have another monitor try it on the computer, if it works, that means the other monitor is bad. If you have another computer, plug the monitor that is getting the message into that computer and see what happens. If it works, that means the video card in the original computer is bad.

You can even plug the monitor into a laptop if it has a VGA cable and the laptop has a VGA Port. Some laptops will require you to hit the FN (function key) plus a (F1 thru F12) key to get the image to display. Press and HOLD the FN key then hit the appropriate (F1 thru F12) key to display the image. The appropriate key will normally have LCD/CRT written on it or it will have the icon of a display screen.

Where is the Number key lock on my new hp laptop?? I can't get my router to work


usually if the computer do not have a num lock neat the numbers in the left corner ..I mean if you only have numbers on top of the letters this means that the numbers are always on ...and if you need to change to the upper symbols use the shift key above the ctrl and Fn key ...If you do not have the numbers always on under the letters it means that you used the fn key and changed the functions of the keys or some kinda odd virus did that and in this case a reinstall will fix it ..but I dont this this is the case...
If you have Numbers in the right side like a full size keyboard..than the num LK will be on top of them if you only have numbers on top of the letters than the numbers are always on and the shift will change to the symbols

Why is my computer typing numbers instead of letters when I type


That is because the Function key is enabled to type in numbers. Try pressing the Fn key (dont let go) and press Numlock key.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

I cant get the keyboard letters to work that have the blue numbers on them without pushing the fn blue button in the bottom row at the same time


that is how the function keys on some keyboards work. Other keyboards have a key that says Fmode. When this is pressed then the blue keys will work all the time. Other than that the Fn key needs to be pressed at the same time as the function key you are using.
