    Are you referring to wanting to use the number pad with the off color keytop numerals?

Hi,

We can solve this for you.
1.) Do you notice the Fn key in the first row, the same row where the spacebar is located?
2.) What color is the writing on the Fn key?
3.) On the bottom of your Dell Laptop is a label that contains a model name. Would you look at that model name, the one underneath, and send that to me? Also on the bottom is your Service Tag, would you also post that?

Thanks.

You can respond to this by writing in the Comment Text Box below these posts on this page. You do not need to use the Ask Me button. The Ask Me button is supposed to send me an alert that someone has sent a request to me. But this function is still buggy. FixYa.com is still pretty new as a web site.

When you use the Comment Box, I get an email alert right away.

Regards,
Worldvet

It's the number bad which sits "under" the qwerty letters. i.e. u, i, o, j, k, l etc I've pressed the num lk key but nothing happens. Many thanks

Dell 1525 won't run on ac but will on generic battery


Dell systems will not charge the battery without a Dell Branded AC adapter connected to the system (The BIOS looks for the adapter ID and disables the battery charger if not ID'd)
It appears, that since the system will not power on with either AC adapter, that there is a problem with the power connection of the system. You can replace the power board

if that fails to resolve next is the motherboard

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys


Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.
For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.
SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)
If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.
