Scroll lock key. On laptops it is usually controlled by a Fn key. Hold the Fn key while pressing the Scroll lock key and it should go off.

Keyboard problem


You may just pop the key out by inserting a paper clip and popping it out. You can them fix the contact beneath it if it need to be fixed. It may also have dust, dirt or crud underneath that needs to be cleaned with some Isopropyl alcohol and a cotton tip. Be gentle and do not use force. Pop it back on as it fits on a base beneath it. You may also get another keyboard which is usually around 50 to 100 dollars and easy to replace too.

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

The Caps Lock button is normally to the left of the "A" key on the keyboard. I don't know that specific laptop, but there may be a light with the letter "A" in a padlock shown on the top of the keyboard, which will indicate the specific status of the caps lock.

Hi there is samll problem with my laptop when i press letters but i get numbers after cleaning the keyboard may be i pressed the some wrong key please assits me


Yes you pressed the Fn key and then the numlock button. This locked on the 'virtual' numpad of numbers in (blue or green usually) colour on some of the keyboard keys. Pressing this combination again should clear it.

Problem with sony vaio keyboard


Sounds like you've got something stuck under your shift key. Carefully clean out under the keys, try a paintbrush and a hoover (on low suction if possible).

Be careful not to knock any of the keys off. They're held on by small clips which pop out or break easily.
