How is it functioning wrongly? Do you have it in numlock? Try pushing the numlock key. If it is something other than that please let us know.

Third function keyboard


The purpose of a laptop's function key is to activate the secondary function of any dual-purpose key.

The function key can accidentally be locked into place if you hit the wrong combination of keys so that all of the keys only perform their secondary function.

The exact process for unlocking the function key will vary depending on the make and model of your laptop and whether you have recently used an external keyboard.

1
Check the manual that came with your laptop and locate the section on the function of each keyboard key.

Open a Web browser and navigate to the support section of the laptop manufacturer's website if you do not have the manual that originally came with your laptop.

Use the drop-down menus on the support page to choose the specific product line and then model of your laptop.
2

Click on the "Product Support" link and then navigate to the "Manuals" section of the page. Click on the link to open a PDF version of the manual for your laptop.

Browse down to the section about the functions of the keyboard keys.
3

Find the sequence of keys you need to press to unlock the function key on your laptop.
Press and hold the function key on the keyboard and then press the other keys required to unlock it.
4

Try using the most standard keyboard combinations if you don't have the manual or it does not give any information about the function key.

Press the function key and then the shift key and see if it successfully unlocks the function key. Attempt using the other standard keys in conjunction with the function key, such as the "F11," "F12" and "Ctrl" keys.
5

Plug a USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop if you have recently used an external keyboard with the laptop.

Check the light above the "Numlock" key on the external keyboard and see if it is turned on. Press the key and make sure the light is turned off and then remove the keyboard to unlock the function key.

Error 301 on IBM 600x


HelloThe IBM error 301 POST code means the keyboard is not responding correctly. Folowing may be the reasons:-
  • You could have a stuck key, or the keyboard cable is faulty and not making proper electrical contact.
  • You could have a faulty keyboard controller.
  • You may have a faulty keyboard which may had some fluid spilt on the keys.
  • Try clean and reconnect the keyboard cable.
If this doesn't work try connecting an USB keyboard and see if this keyboard functions correctly.

If none of these work you have a motherboard problem.

Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Some of the keys on the keyboard when pressed display the wrong letter/number/character. i have changed the keyboard but its still a problem.


First thing I would check would be the "NUM LOCK" key. It may be activated via the function (FN) key on the lower left of the keyboard. In other words, hold down the FN key and hit (NMLK) which should be somewhere along the top edge on the right side.

Dear Sir, Re: Laptop NEC Versa E6300. When I am using the keyboard a,b,c,...I get the wrong letters. Somebody told me I have pressed the ''Fn'' key by mistake. Please help & thanks. Regards Sheik A...


The fn key would convert most abc keys into function keys not make them produce other letters. You may have changed your region settings or your keyboard style. Both can be changed under the control panel under keyboard settings.

My keyboard is a mess when almost all the keys


They may have removed the keys to clean the keyboard and placed them back in the wrong spot.
Check the keys against another beyboard and see if the keys have been placed in the wrong spot.
Take it back to the people/company that did the work and tell then the keyboard is not working properly.

Error code 301


The IBM error 301 POST code means the keyboard is not responding correctly.
You could have a stuck key, or the keyboard cable is faulty and not making proper electrical contact.
You could have a faulty keyboard controller.
You may have a faulty keyboard which may had some fluid spilt on the keys.
Try clean and reconnect the keyboard cable.
If this doesn't work try connecting an USB keyboard and see if this keyboard functions correctly.
If none of these work you have a motherboard problem. The Thinkpad 600 is a very old laptop and it would not be worth fixing. I suggest putting your money towards a new laptop.

Hello, Kindly ineed your'Support ihave IBM Thinkpad Laptop keyboard function give output error i type u come output 4 wrong key fuction kindly ineed your;s help Thanks for your support with best regards,...


When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Shift key plus the ScrLk (Scroll lock) key, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.
