    Could it be that you've activated the numeric keys? Have a look at the corresponding indicator (on the side ot the power button) and - if it is burning - deactivate the number keys then...

I can't turn the fn key off


The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it.

Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

Function keys


Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.

Must hold function key down.


Hmm...first, is your "scroll lock" key lit up? if it is, you activated the number key pad for your laptop. if fn + scroll lock doesn't work, try re-installing the operating system (xp or vista) although it may be a pain :(

Prt scrn button does not work on Gateway KB-0532 keyboard


It doesn't work on my laptop. It works if you hold down the FN key whilst pressing the prt scrn button, if you cannot find the FN key, on my laptop it is next to the CTRL button on the bottom left. Hope I've solved your problem!
