How can I unlock the blue function keys on my HP Pavilion dv2000?

Every now and then when I'm typing I somehow lock the keyboard onto the blue function keys. For example, when I press the key for a question mark, it makes a french accented "e", and I can't figure out how to unlock it.

Hi, I had the same problem and found the solution on another website:

To turn on and off Bilingual blue keys:

Hit Ctrl + Shift + shift
(yes, both shift keys at the same time in addition to ctrl)

and that turns on and off the Canadian bilingual blue keys on HP lap tops.

It's so annoying and happens to me frequently. Hope this helps.

Ur all dummies... the solution is simple

SIMPLY lay ur fingers over the CTRL and CAPS LOCKS keys... then, after concentrating on this task alone, depress CTRL and CAPS LOCKS keys in one swift motion with ur thumb and index finger. Hold the pose for 2 whole seconds... for those who can't count say "mississippi, mississippi!"

cheers!

How i can enble function key


HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.

Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.

I am not able to work with my keyboard function keys and num keys and function keys . but the the touch pad key is onlyworking .please send a solution to unlock the keyboard. hp pavilion g6-2102tx


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon. Hope this helps.

How can i unlock my keyboard?my laptop is HP Pavillion dv6940se.pls reply asap.thank you very much.


The only way to lock/unlock a keyboard is either with the Fn key and the F# key corresponding to that function. The F# key may have a padlock icon. Or if you can use your mouse, you can try going to control panel, ease of access center and click the heading 'change how your keyboard works'. I believe there are programs available which can be used to lock the keyboard, but that would likely have been installed after purchase and should have an icon in the system tray!

How can I unlock the blue function keys on my HP Pavilion dv2000?


If you press the function key (Fn) it should unlock the function keys with normal use. However, sometimes when an external device is removed from the computer while it's in use (such as an external keyboard) the function keys will turn on and refuse to turn off. When this occurs you can typically reboot the computer and the problem will fix itself.
