How do I control lock keys


The keys above the Function keys (Num Lock, Scroll Lock, maybe speaker volume or display brightness) will be in a different color than the white keys on your keyboard. Usually they will be blue or orange. There is a corresponding function key, usually left of your spacebar, that is in the same color, and it is usually labeled FN.

Press and hold the FN key and press the Num Lock key. Then release both of them. That should turn off your Num Lock.

Good luck!

Need to find list/definitions of "function Keys"


Please open this LINK, scroll down to page no. 2-5 i.e. the section with "To use the Function Hot Keys Fn". There you'll find the details about the functional function keys of your compaq. It seems your function key i.e. Fn key is activated, to deactivate, press and hold down the Fn key while you tap the Numlock key once.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My Compaq laptop keyboard seems to be stuck in ALT mode. All the keys which have an alternate character in the upper right corner, will only type those characters. For example, the "m" key will only type...


Never ran into this problem myself but a friend of mine has. He said what fixed his what holding Fn + Num Lock and it remedied his problem.
Unless your key is stuck/broken you can also try a can of air and try to blow it out and or pull the key and make sure its not stuck down.
But deff try the holding Fn + Num Lock method first.

Boots up with function key locked. Can't type normally.


It sounds like your NumLock key is on. Try pressing the FN key and the NumLock keys at the same time. This should straighten things out.

I may be totally retarded but I have no clue what the padlock with two arrows in it. It is on top of my keyboard next to the lighted indicators for num lock and shift lock.... anyone have any idea what...


Hi,


The scroll lock key was meant to lock all scrolling techniques, though it is no longer used by almost any software. In the original design, scroll lock was intended to modify the behavior of the arrow keys. When the scroll lock mode was on, the arrow keys would scroll the contents of a text window instead of moving the cursor. In this usage, scroll lock is a modifier key like ALT and SHIFT (which modify the function of other keys) and, more specifically, a toggling Lock key like NUM lock or CAPS lock, which have a state that persists after the key is released.

Hassan

Num Lock Light Wont Work

CAPs lock key is on al the time


When you start your PC, Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock don’t automatically toggle on. You can automatically turn each of them on or off whenever your PC starts, for all accounts on the PC. As a practical matter, most people probably want to have only Num Lock automatically turned on, but this Registry hack gives you the power to force any combination of keys on or off.

Start>Run then type in "regedit" whithout quotes.

HKEY_USERS.DefaultControl PanelKeyboard.
3eaaaca.jpg Find the String value
InitialKeyboardIndicators. By default, it is set to 0, which means that Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock are all turned off. Set it to any of the following values, depending on the combination of keys you want turned on or off:
0 Turns off Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock
1 Turns on Caps Lock
2 Turns on Num Lock
3 Turns on Caps Lock and Num Lock
4 Turns on Scroll Lock
5 Turns on Caps Lock and Scroll Lock
6 Turns on Num Lock and Scroll Lock
7 Turns on Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock
Exit the Registry. When you restart, the new setting will take effect.

Note: You have problem with Caps Lock so just modify Caps lock option on Regedit.
And do not forget to run virus scan on your computer once you are done.

Rate always the all answers.

Thank you

Function keys not working


try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand
