Monitor not working when plugged into laptop


On some laptops, you need to enable the external monitor port. Look at the number keys across the top of the keyboard. There should be some legends in blue on them. These are associated with the Function (Fn) key. One of the blue legends will most likely activate/deactivate the external monitor port. Press the Fn key along with the associated number key to activate/deactivate the monitor port.

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

Please can you help me.i can only type if i have the fn button pressed downn.what is wrong


Actually this depends on the model of the computer or the type of the Keyboard. Try pressing Fn+Numlk simultaneously, that will deactivate the Fn key. Pressing the Fn+Numlock keys activates and deactivates the Fn function.


Good Luck.

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.

Mouse pad stopped working


If you are referring to the "touch pad" on Laptop/notebook, if the touchpad on your laptop is not working and is unresponsive, it's not broken, you or someone else has accidently deactivated it with the function key.

Then you can try this,
Most laptops (if not all) come with a function key. The function key is labelled "Fn" and usually stands out from the rest - either the "Fn" is in a different color or the key as a whole. The function key works in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard especially the ones in the top row marked "F1" to "F12". The combination of function key with these keys lets you perform various tasks quickly such as shutting the screen, putting the computer in sleep mode, switching the wireless connection on and off etc.

By keeping the function key pressed and then hitting one of the keys ("F1" to "F12"), activates a task. You can activate and deactivate the touchpad by using the function key with the "F8" key.

Hope it helps.

Press Fn + F7 at the same time to activate and deactivate the touchpad.

The Fn key, or function key, can be used to activate or deactivate a number of functions depending on what F-key it is pressed with.

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.
