Press Ctrl-Shift-NumLk to lock or unlock the number lock feature. The NumLk key should be the same key as ScrlLk at the upper right hand part of your keyboard.

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.

My keyboard is typing numbers and characters instead of letters!


Hello,

Sounds like you have num lock on. The Num lock key is usually the same as Scrlk but to select the Num lock you have to press and hold Shift then press NumLk/ScrLk. A light should light up to indicate the keypad is on/off.

Regards,

HP keyboard, How do you turn off the "fn" key? Thanks.


Your digital lock is activated.

To solve this:

"It all depends on the model you have".

Just start at solution "1" and work your way down to "3", If it is a Thinkpad use it only.

1. Simply press the FN (F Lock) and hold a few seconds.
or
2. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Num lock. (most common for HP)
or
3. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Shift + Num lock.

For IBM Thinkpad only, you must press Shift + Scroll Lock + Num lock.

A few days ago when I was on the the laptop anytime I pressed the letters mjkluio , numbers would appear instead. I tried to press the num lock button and it made no difference. Nothing would fix it so I...


The Function keys up top will not do anything when not in a program that has them set.

The num lock key on most laptops does not itself work: it must be pressed in conjunction with another key. This is normally the "FN" key at the lower left.

Please try pressing the "FN" key while you press the "num lock" key and see if this now works.

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.


When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Fn key plus and probably the Scroll keys, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

There is a num lock key. Press Fn Num Lock (I believe it is the scroll lock key on this particular keyboard).

I think you have to be more specific for the solution of this.. I actually had the same problem and solution #2 missed something or is misguided the way it is.
Here's what's missing: * In order to get to numlock you have to press the shift key on the ScrLk key. i.e. ScrLk activates the scroll lock, and SHIFT+ ScrLk activates and deactivates the num lock.
that helped me, finally I am able to type this message :-)
