Either by pressing and holding the Fn key while using the numeric keys. Or use the Num Lock and you don't need to hold down the Fn key.

Is there any other way to switch on the ibm laptop


Usually by pressing the power key. Sometimes if the laptop is in sleep mode, it can be set up to 'see' the LAN for a wake up command.

When typing the letter U the number 4 pop in same for I-5 O-6P-* .


This laptop has a number pad as an alternate assignment of these right hand keys. When this is active, the Num Lock light should be lit. To unlock the Numpad, press Shift and NumLk. (There are three status lights related to the keyboard status: Scroll Lock, Num Lock (which has a 1 inside the Christmas Tree profile icon, and Caps Lock.) With Win2K and WinNT, resetting this setting requires logging out of the account after changing the setting and then logging back in. The more recent Windows OS versions should handle this without rebooting or logging out and back in.

I hope this helps.

How to disable touch pad in asus k40IN series? I do not see touch pad settings?


This happend to me on a Asus U81 (Best Buy version of the U80) which has the Elantech mousepad
9.10 includes an X configuration utility called xinput. It is a command line tool. To see the many things you can do with this simply type xinput at a shell prompt.

Start by typing in:
Quote: xinput list This will show you all the input devices attached to your computer. You will need to know your mousepad's id to continue. On My Asus laptop the internal pointer was found as a "ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse". The Id I get after booting my system with my external mouse attached is 10.

Next you need to know how to disable the mousepad. So you need to know what properties it supports. the command is "xinput list-props" followed by your mousepad's id number, which for me was:
Quote: xinput list-props 10 The "Device Enabled" was what I needed to be able to use to switch it off. On my laptop this line was "Device Enabled (97): 1". The parenthesized number is the properties id number, the 1 that follows it is the value (0 will turn it off).

So now I need to set it such that the mousepad is disabled. My mousepad id is 10, property id I want to set is 97 and I need to set the property value to be 0. The option for xinput is set-int-prop which needs deviceid, propertyid, format of the value (8, 16, or 32 bit), and the value itself. For me this is:
Quote: xinput set-int-prop 10 97 8 0 To turn it back on:
Quote: xinput set-int-prop 10 97 8 1 Since this does its work on the X in memory it is not persistent. If you log out and back in the mousepad will be active again. This is desired behavior for me as I occasionally need to be able to use the laptop without my external mouse.

When I get a little time, I will write a small shell script that can toggle it on or off based on a grep of the output of "xinput list" and bind it to a key combination so I can do this without having to drop out to a script. (EDIT NOTE: See post #15 in this thread if you want the scripts)

One last note, xinput interacts with X. It will not be able to function at a normal terminal screen not running under your X. It will work just fine in an xterminal (the one under accessories menu).

Hope this helps.

First you should check if the button that enables and disables your touch pad is on. It's the button left to the power button.

Number pad


You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.

Letter after o broke


Go to start menu, accessories, system tools, character map. In here you can either copy and paste what you need or hold your mouse over a letter and it will give you a unicode command you can use to type that charater on your number pad.

Whilst typing the cursor moves to another part of the document


If your laptop has the option too you can turn off touch pad through a switch above the touch pad.

If you can't find this, or you don't have one, simply go to the run command and type in devmgmt.msc, ok.

Once in the device manager go "Mice and Other Pointing Devices"
look for your touchpad, right click on it and select disable.

Please note, some laptops wont let you disable to the touchpad, mine wont, but mine has an on and off key.

ON/OFF Key
Touch Pad On
Touch Pad Off

This will keep the mouse from moving whole you type, but I suggest you get a regular mouse, especially if you have to disable the device with the Device manager.

Toshiba Laptop "Enter" and touch pad not working


This screen should have a 30 second count down, then start Windows normally. If yours doesn't do this, then she may have keyed the automated recovery and interrupter it causing an operating system error or glitch. If this is the case you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If it does start Windows after the count down, then run a system restore. One of these will take care of your problem. Also, there is no locking command for the touch pad or enter key.
