I think the only solution is to phisically remove the key from the keyboard - VERY gently, in order not to break or send flying the pieces to which the key is attached. The little rubber button underneath might be squished below those pieces.

How do I reset keyboard on acee laptop to use white characters on keys not blue


Press function key (fn) and num lock key together far as I can remember .

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

M and O key generate wrong character keyboard or keyboard encoder? Characters generated 0 and 6


This is usually caused by the FN LOCK key being stuck. You probably also have the U, I, J and K keys behaving funny and believing they're a numeric keypad.

Try clicking two or three times both shift, the FN key, NumLock key and, just in case, the Ctrl key. Also try pressing Alt-O and Alt-M or Fn-O or Fn-Alt-O and see if that gets you back the "O" key.

If only the M and O keys behave this way, though, it looks more like a keyboard driver problem; reinstalling the driver (or selecting a different keyboard, such as French one, and then back the normal keyboard again) might fix it.

Netbook keyboard when I hit the u key it gives me a 4, the i key a 5 and the o key a 6. There are a few other keys that do the same thing with different numbers and characters.


Sounds like you have turned on the NUM LOCK on the laptop keyboard. If you look closely you will see the numbers on those keys (maybe in a different colour).

You need to turn off NUM LOCK again. On the laptop I'm looking at, this is done by pressing Fn and END together, but the key should be marked with NUM LOCK as well.

There are little blue numbers on my keyboard and i'm wondering how you turn off when you hit fn?


The 'FN' key changes a "grid" of the keyboard alphabetic keys
to a numeric keypad "grid", when you hold 'FN' down and press the 'NUMERIC LOCK' (or 'NUM LOCK') key, and then release the 'FN' key.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type


It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

How do I use NumLoc on lenovo t-60? No keys for it?


If you hold down the Fn (function key) and hit one of the NumLock keys, this will type those NumLock characters usually printed in blue on the keytop). Also this is different on virtually every laptop, but one key should say NumLock or have a picture of a lock on it in blue. This is the NumLock and it is toggled by holding the Fn key and that key.
