If you hold down the Fn (function key) and hit one of the NumLock keys, this will type those NumLock characters usually printed in blue on the keytop). Also this is different on virtually every laptop, but one key should say NumLock or have a picture of a lock on it in blue. This is the NumLock and it is toggled by holding the Fn key and that key.

Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.

How do I get swedish letters on an asus keyboard?


You get special characters by using alt codes. That is, you press and hold the "alt" key while entering a 4-digit code using the numeric keypad (or, on a laptop, the keys that serve as a numeric keypad). When you release the alt key the special character appears at the cursor location. This page lists the characters and corresponding code.

If you are using an application like Microsoft Word, there may be an "insert special character" command available. Then you can pick the character from a table instead.

What is the keyboard combination for Ñ in a


Alt+0241

On Windows, the Alt key functions as a modifier like the Shift key. To make special characters, hold down the Alt key and type in the numbers from the numeric keypad. Note that on the some small keyboards (e.g. laptop keybaords) the “numeric keypad” is found by pressing the NumLock key and then looking for the keys on your keyboard that double as numeric keypad keys when in NumLock mode.

I cannot get backslash on logiboard keyboard


1) With your NUMLOCK on, hold the ALT key down and type 092 on your numeric keypad.  When you have NUMLOCK on, ALT and a 3-figure digit gives you special characters.  092 is the backslash on UK and Spanish keyboards, so hopefully it'll work for you.  If you get something different, you'll have to try different numbers until you find it

or 

2) In Start --> Programs --> Accessories there's a program called Character Map.  This gives you a list of available characters

How to make degree sign in computer using numbers?


A better way to enter special symbols in Windows applications (such as Word), is to take advantage of the symbols in the fonts provided by Windows. For example, in Word, use the following steps:
  1. Click on "Insert" (in the menu at the top of the page)
  2. From the drop-down menu, select "Symbol". A chart of special symbols will appear
  3. From the chart, you can select a symbol to insert into your document by highlighting the symbol, and clicking on the word "Insert" at the bottom of the chart.

I would like a manual for the latitude D610 keyboard to know how to use the symbol that are highlighted in bleu


In the lower left hand corner of your Dell Keyboard -- you will see a Blue Key labeled -- "Fn". This key allows you the use of ALL of the other blue labeled keys on your keyboard. You must press the FN key and the other "blue" key at the same time for them to work.

The keys on the right side of the keyboard with the blue numbers on them are controlled by the Numlock key and Fn key. The light at the top of the keyboard near the power button, with the number "9" inside a picture of a lock, will be lit if the Numlock is enabled.
You may need to press the Fn key to type numbers even if the Numlock is turned on. There is a setting in the BIOS called Enable Keypad and if you set it to By Numlock you will not have to hold down this key to type a number.

If you are still having trouble with these keys, please see the general keyboard troubleshooting guide

Extra characters display when key pressed


Check the NumLock Key. If your keyboard isn't typing the correct characters, you may have the incorrect input language selected. Many laptops will convert most of the keyboard into a number pad if NumLock is enabled. Press Num Lock + Function or Function then NumLock to make sure its disabled.

ALT Codes


I'm a little late to the game, but...
I share James's frustration. Seems like a dumb thing for Dell to economize on. Here's my workaround, for what it's worth.
  1. Open the Windows on-screen keyboard (osk.exe). And, for later ease of use, pin it to your taskbar. (Detailed instructions: click on the Windows start button, type osk.exe in the search box, right-click on the program, select Pin to Taskbar.)
  2. On the virtual keyboard, open Options and select "Turn on the numeric keypad." After saving the setting, press the NumLock button.
  3. Here's the tricky bit: press and hold Alt on your physical keyboard, and then press and hold Fn, again on your physical keyboard. You're holding them both down, right? Keep doing it. Now enter your four-digit code on the virtual (on-screen) keyboard. Release the physical keys. You should have your special character.
Hope it works for you.
