Could be a bad keyboard but you should try a hard reboot on your computer to see if that helps. a used keyboard can come in handy to be able to test to see if it is your keyboard or not.

Try pressing it without the Fn key, sometimes it gets switched up. If this doesn't work, try restarting the computer.

Where is the scroll lock key on my keyboard


Hi Mark,

for scroll Lock on your laptop try the key combination hold the Fn key and press the F12 to activate scroll lock, the same can be used to undo the Scroll Lock too.

as you will see that you can also activate most other functions with the Fn Key combination when used with the keys which have the functions printed on them in the same color as the Fn Key
for example Fn+F3 keys will toggle WiFi on or off, Fn+F4 will put the computer to Sleep, Fn+Up Arrow to increase Volume and Fn+Down Arrow to Decrease Volume etc.

hope this helps
warm regard

How to activate wifi in leenovo 3000 g530


Welcome to Fixya

The wifi is already activated by default to the computer when you purchase it. Try to check if the wifi switch is off. Look for a switch infron of the computer or at the side. Toggle the switch and see if the wifi will be activated. You can also try pressing keys on your keyboard. Look for an F key (F1, F2 etc) on your keyboard that has a picture of a tower that has signal or sound wave. Press Fn then Press that particular key to deactivate/active the wifi adapter.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How to connect wifi network in archos 28 internet tablet


This is normal. To save energy, the ARCHOS always starts up with the WiFi set to off. You must manually use the Fn-F3 keys if you want to activate the WiFi connection.
I cannot connect to the Internet over WiFi, what's wrong? Make sure that your WiFi is activated. This can be turned on and off with the blue function key pressed down and then the F3 key. The blue WiFi indicator just below the touch-pad will light indicating that it has been turned on.
My WiFi router/modem is on and working, but it does not show up in the list of wireless networks. What's wrong? It could be that the WiFi modem/router is hiding its SSID. This is done for security purposes sometimes. You can either change this on the WiFi modem/router (see its instructions) so that it broadcasts its SSID (and then you'll see it in the list on your ARCHOS 10) or you can go into the advanced settings of the Wireless Network Connection screen to the Wireless Networks tab and 'add' a new connection. You will need to know the SSID name and its other connection parameters.

You have to press FN+F3 for bluetooth to come up. All the blue icons on keys are associated with FN key, which is next to the left CTRL key.

How do you turn on the wireless function on the esprimo v5535?


hai

According to the laptop's quick guide this is how you enable and disable your wireless:

Radio components: Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth/UMTS

The installation of a wireless LAN module not approved by Fujitsu
Siemens Computers GmbH voids the permits issued for this device
(see chapter "Technical data", Page 22).

Depending on the device variant, wireless LAN, Bluetooth and/or UMTS may be integrated in your notebook.

On delivery, WLAN components are switched on, Bluetooth components off.

Switching the radio components on and off
Start the WirelessSelector using the key combination Fn + F1 .
The WirelessSelector enables you to switch the radio components activated in
BIOS Setup on and off individually.

BUWlMuireTtlSeososthLAN
Press the key combination Fn + F1 to start the WirelessSelector.

The radio component indicator will be illuminated when one or more
radio components is switched on.

If you switch off the radio components, the Bluetooth module, UMTS and wireless LAN transmission unit (antenna) will also be switched off.

You can enable or disable the radio components individually.

BIOS Setup allows you to specify which radio components can be switched on
and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .

Only those components that have been activated in BIOS Setup can be switched on and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Conversely, components that are deactivated in BIOS setup cannot be controlled using the key combination.

You can also activate and deactivate the radio components individually in the BIOS Setup. You must have assigned the supervisor password in order for this function to be available.

Pay attention to the additional safety notes for devices with radio
components provided in the "Safety" manual.

Details on using Wireless LAN can be found in the online help system
included in the Wireless LAN software.

You can find more information on how to use Bluetooth on the CD you
received with your Bluetooth software.
