    Hi! Did that work for you?

    My keyboard locked up as I was typing. The 9 is illuminated; when I press the button in the center (with the antenna symbol), the green light flashes but then goes off - the light over the keyboard symbol had been red, but now is not illuminated at all. I think the last thing I typed was a typo that might have included the "control s". When I go home today, I'll try to undo the number lock, but I thought I had tried that last night. The mouse still works. Tks for any advice you can give. Sheryl

How do I unlock my keyboard? On the top right hand corner there is a silver Dell button(that's what it looks like). There are 3 lights with 3 lock emblems, one has the number 9, one has the letter A a


Those "lock" lights are for the NUMLOCK, CAPS LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK features. With each press of the NUM LOCK key, the "9" should cycle on and off. With each press of the CAP LOCK key, The "A" light should cycle on and off, and so on.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    After being turned on the screen goes black and the lock key with the number 9 is illuminated ablove the keyboard


    I had that happen to me with my Dell as well... If you're comfortable with taking a laptop apart.. you'll need to detach the screen ribbon, clean it with rubbing alcohol, and then reattach it. This should do the trick..

    It is better to run the dell diagnostics, when you see the dell logo keep on tapping f12, then choose utility partition and do an express on your system.
