The number lock key has been pressed or the BIOS configuration has been configured with the NUM lock on.
Check the BIOS setting.

To release the NUM lock.
Press the number lock key once, if you press it again it will turn the numbers again. It is usually one of the keys above the Function keys (ie F1 to F12 keys).

Password reset dell latitude C610, BIOS A16


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode

When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.

Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.
In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account. Hope this helps you

System control buttons not working on Toshiba Satellite a660


You can adjust these settings on the Make the keyboard easier to use page in the Ease of Access Center. 1. Open the Make the keyboard easier to use page by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Ease of Access, clicking Ease of Access Center, and then clicking Make the keyboard easier to use. 2. Select the options that you want to use: • Turn on Mouse Keys. This option sets Mouse Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Instead of using the mouse, you can use the arrow keys on your keyboard or the numeric keypad to move the pointer. • Turn on Sticky Keys. This option sets Sticky Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Instead of having to press three keys at once (such as when you must press the CTRL, ALT, and DELETE keys together to log on to Windows), you can use one key by turning on Sticky Keys and adjusting the settings. This way, you can press a modifier key and have it remain active until another key is pressed. • Turn on Toggle Keys. This option sets Toggle Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Toggle Keys can play an alert each time you press the CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK, or SCROLL LOCK keys. These alerts can help prevent the frustration of inadvertently pressing a key and not realizing it. • Turn on Filter Keys. This option sets Filter Keys to run when you log on to Windows. You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally. • Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys. This option makes keyboard access in dialog boxes easier by highlighting access keys for the controls in them. If that does not work you may need to visit the web site of your computer manufacturer to see if they have some specific software installed on your computer that controls key functions.

I was using my laptop and now for some reason I can't type on the keyboard or log off. Did I hit a key and lock it? How do I unlock it?


Use the touchpad and right click on the Taskbar then click on the Task Manager to open it. In the Task manager, click on the users tab to view the list of the logged on users then click on the username that you want to log off then click on the Log off button.
After logging off again use the touchpad to restart the Computer by selecting the appropriate option.
As the Computer is restarting press the button that says on the screen to press to enter to SETUP screen. This will make the Computer boot to the BIOS. In the BIOS check if the keyboard is working by pressing the arrow keys to select the Exit menu to select the restore to default option.
If the keyboard is not working in the BIOS then the keyboard is failed and service is required.

Keyboard


she cant log on or her key is not functioning? be specific

if it is the key, use an external keyboard

if it doesnt work and u r sure it is the keyboard then the keyboard controller is damaged... u would probably need the chip replaced or the whole system board replaced

if it is not the key, then press f8 before windows boots and get into safe mode.... use the admin account to log in and see if u can access her files
