How do I turn on my touch pad on an Asus lap top?


Please try the Fn+F6 or Fn+F8 key combinations. If you look at the Function keys in the keyboard, they will have symbols on them in Blue color, the same color as the Fn key. Find the symbol that resembles a touchpad like a mouse/box with finger , then hold down the Fn key and press that Function key, ie, F6 or F7 or F8. This will enable/disable the touchpad.

Mouse is not working in samsung n102sp i need help to fix


If your touchpad has stopped working it may be because you have deactivated it by pressing a small button near the touchpad. it may also be activated by pressing one of F keys (F5 for instance) in conjunction with the Fn (function) key usually found at the bottom left of the keyboard.The button combination will look like a finger pointing to a square.

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.

Locked keyboard


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.



On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.

You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination


would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.


hope this helps

That's because you activated the NumLock mode!
Have a look at your keyboard -upper right-, you'll find a "NumLock" key, push it once more and you will deactivate it and retrieve the normal use of any keys!

Good luck, Jopica123

The mouse pad has stopped working on my sons emachines e430 how can i get it start working again???????


Hi there,

At the top of the keyboard there is a touchpad toggle button (enables and disables the touchpad) that may automatically be disabled at boot time.

You will see just above the keyboard three oval silverish buttons the first one on the left is to enable or disable the touchpad.

Here's the official site for the manual showing all the function keys and features:

Need to find list/definitions of "function Keys"


Please open this LINK, scroll down to page no. 2-5 i.e. the section with "To use the Function Hot Keys Fn". There you'll find the details about the functional function keys of your compaq. It seems your function key i.e. Fn key is activated, to deactivate, press and hold down the Fn key while you tap the Numlock key once.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I can not change secondary keyboard functions back.


Try the following tips;
1. Press Fn key once, release it and type on a notepad or etc....
2. Press Fn + Numlock (press simultaneous as you press ctrl+c to copy) once and test the type again.
This key combination is to activate and deactivate function key (Fn).

Good luck.

If you want repair this it costs high. I suggest you to buy a "usb optical mouse". Just plug it in to you usb port on your laptop.
I think it better. Contact me again for any suggestion.
