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.

Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

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.

I locked my keyboard on fn by hitting some buttons i dont know how i did it though ! like when i go to type j or something a 2 comes up . i have to hold the fn key just to type this now. Help!


Ok, your numLK (number lock) is activated. Hold the Fn key on the bottom left or right of the keyboard, then press the Insert/numLK key on the top right of the keyboard. You should see a graphic box indicating "number lock off." Hope this helps. RoyBK

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.

The keyboard on my laptop has numbers and keys on it


Hi,
It sounds like the Num Lock is on.

Depending on the make of the laptop there is a few different ways to turn it off.
Either just hit the Num Lock key and see if it goes off, hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key or hold down the shift key and hit the Num Lock key.

Where is cap lock on key board


on a QWERTY keyboard the Caps Lock Key is under the tab and above the shift. On most laptops that have scaled way down in size and along with that they have created duel usage of keys. You will see keys with letters at the top and the bottom of a key...usually different colors. Look for one that says CAPS Lock and see what color it is. look around for a Fn key of the same coloer. Hit the two keys at the same time.
