Question about Computers & Internet
I have an acer aspire 5100. it was hooked up to a pc keyboard. now that its not, the Fn key wont shut off. i keep getting the blue symbol on the key instead of the letter. HELP!!!! the same problem. I get 5 insted i, 6 for o, * for p and so on. I can also get letters, but only when Fn pressed. Sound and back light control works fine
SOURCE: Fn key wont turn off
OK, I've found a soliution! :)
I've been diging the internet and many people are having the same problem, so it is a common problem however the soliution is very simple (in my case).
The thing is that laptops does not has a saparated Num Pad, and numbers can be found on keys under F1-F12 row or/and (active with Fn key) on alphabetic keys uiopjkl;m/ and so on. But if there is a NumLk key on your keyboard, you can lock the Num Pad on alphabetic keys. Then you have to hold Fn key pressed to write letters.
Find the NumLk key and try to turn off the Num Pad :)
On my laptop (Acer extensa 5120) NumLk key is on F11 and active when Fn is depressed.
Hope this wil help :)
