My grand daughter has some how turned on the FN key so when she is typing numbers come on the screen instead of the letters. How do we stop this ?


The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.

My computer keyboard is all screwed up.....punching in letters and getting numbers?????? Tried shutting down and rebooting but still the same!


Check to ensure the FN key is not stuck. Most keyboards have a number pad that is only activated while this key is pressed also. You can try a usb keyboard to eliminate other problems. Replacement keyboards a generally under $20.00 and easily replaced.

Sony vaio vgn-nr160e with vista, function+ keys wont work


Hi,
To enable the Fn keys functionality, you need to install the "Vaio Event Service" and "Sony Utility Series"
They are available to download as part of a package from the Sony website. Here is the link:

The Fn botton on my vio lap top won't work


The Fn button is like a 'shift' key. Just as you would press <Shift> and a letter to get a capitalized letter, you press <Fn> and a function key at the same time ( <Fn><F1> or <Fn><F2> and so on) to use the secondary function for that key. For example, on one of my laptops, the <F2> key has an icon for 'wireless' (looks like an antenna). If I simply press <F2>, I will activate the function for <F2>, but if I press <Fn> and <F2> at the same time, I will turn on my wiress adapter.

<Fn> all by itself does nothing.

Hope this helps.
