Just press Fn+F11. An icon of a Padlock with a number 9 must be unlit for you to use the keyboard normally. If you need to activate the numeric keypad again, just press Fn+F11 again.

I am typing and I get numbers instead of letters. Is there something I can change


Hi,

You have accidentally turned the Num Lock on.

Now depending on the model there are a couple of ways to turn it back off.

1, just hit the Num Lock key and see if its off (type something)
2, Hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key, again type something.




Regards.

My function keys are turned on. how do i turn it


Press the Fn key and the Num Lk key... the reason that your j is a 1 is that the J key is the equivalent of the 1 when the Number lock key is activated. There is a little light up near the power button that shows a lock with a 9 in it... hit the Fn key and the Num Lk key till that light goes out.

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 :(

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.
