Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Number lock won't turn on

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100, and the number lock has never seemed to work. I hold down my function key and push my number lock key on top of the keyboard. The light over the num lock symbol comes on, but no numbers appear. I CAN use the number pad by holding down "function" as I type each character. I just can't lock it on. Have I changed a setting in my computer somewhere that keeps it from locking on?? Thanks..

When enabled, this allows the user to type numbers by pressing the keys on the number pad, rather than having them act as up, down, left, right, page up, end, and so forth.
in bios is where you can set number lock to enable at start up
so restart and enter set up(bios) and change it to lock numbers at start up
if you need more help just let me know

Function keys


Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.

Where is the number lock key on the dell inspiron im5030


there is a large hole in the keypad user manual for the keypad on your laptop almost as if there is no number lock installed
the closest that I can get on the net is that the function key adds extra keys to the board
however with out a board to practice on that is not much use
next suggestion is to take the laptop to a dell service agent( maybe a shop that retails dell products ) and see if there is anyone there with information on the keyboard that can show you how to get the number lock to operate
It has to be on the board probably in the layers of the function key and with help it will be revealed
on a normal board the number lock has a small square box with 1in it
so that symbol appearing when function is used may be the key you want

Must hold function key down.


Hmm...first, is your "scroll lock" key lit up? if it is, you activated the number key pad for your laptop. if fn + scroll lock doesn't work, try re-installing the operating system (xp or vista) although it may be a pain :(

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

Dell Laptop - Keyboard "Fn" is causing problems!


I think it is not the Fn key but the NumLock that is activated. Look for the key labeled NumLk , this is the number lock. Also check if the light on the notbook with a number (usually number 1) is on. If it is on, yo must deactivate the numlock by pressing it again. It works in toggle mode. Sometimes the numlock is activated together with the shift key, sometimes with the function key.
