NC10: Can't type without holding function key down

Hi

I have just purchased a Samsung NC10 netbook.

When I go to type on the keyborad I seem to have to hold the function key down to use some of the letters (eg. when I press K I get a 2) - so in order to type I have to hold down the function key else ½ the letters come out as numbers or symbols.

Can you let me know how to turn this off so I can type normally? Or have I set up the computer wrong?

Thanks for your help!

I set up my girlfriends this morning, to turn off Num Lock, you need to have the machine on and select Fn + F11.

That'll turn it off and you'll have the bliss of typing normally again!!

You have NumLock on. Look to see if you have any key with "Fn" on it - the print would be a different color than the regular keys - also look for a key with "NumLck" on it. To deactivate press and hold the Fn key and press the Numlck key.

Im holding the Fn and f5 key to brighten my screen but its not working


The icon colours should match ...usually blue and you have to tap the brightness up button repeatedly as it is incremental.point worth noting.if the power supply is not connected the battery save option can disable the brightness of screen to stretch out the life of battery between charges.

Hye mr expert...Here i have some question about my samsung netbook n220 series. For your info...actually this problem never happen before.The problem is some of my key not working & some of my key...


Hi,

The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric
