Usually you need to press a key in addition to the lock key. Try using a combination of the lock key and FN or CTRL or SHIFT.

SOURCE: on boot up a lock symbol with a '9' is lit & nothing else happens

the "9" inside a lock means that your Num Lock button has been pressed. If all you see is the ">" then maybe you are looking at what's called a DOS prompt, and I have no idea why that would display. Try holding the Power Switch for 10 seconds and restart your computer. Hopefully things will be better, and you know where your Num Lock key is.

Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.
Hold down the "ALT" key while typing 0153 and it will enter this: ™ when you release the ALT key

Hi. I have Dell latitude d610. What does the symbol A inside a lock mean? It's under wifi symbol on front panel. My computer turns on for 3-5 seconds & goes off. thanks


That symbol stands for CAPSLOCK and lets you know if it is on or off. when the light is on means capslock is on. when off capslock is off

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Startup problem


that wouldn't mean the processor is off, it means there is a problem with the motherboard. I don't know the exact problem with the motherboard. but it could be something wrong with the processor too. but I suggest you take your PC to like Circuit city, best buy, or your local computer shop to have them take a look at.
