Re: keypad

If your keyboard features a special key "Fn" Do this: Press Alt + Fn or Fn + Caps lock. If it does not should have a special that helps you activate special fuctions noted on your keyboard. You have to find that key. Holding it down type the problematic keys. You will get it right.

Hye mr expert...Here i have some question about my samsung netbook n220 series. For your info...actually this problem never happen before.The problem is some of my key not working & some of my key...


The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Packard bell versa e400 power only comes on when connected by the mains adapter. it has a battery in it but will not power up from it.please help

Hi there.
Basically the batteries dead and needs to be replaced!!
This is a common problem right across the board with all laptops, in some cases its the powerboard on the motherboard itself which won't charge any battery new or old.
To troubleshoot it you will need another battery to test with it.

Good luck

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Compaq Presario C700 numbers showing up instead of letters

Either address your "Num Lock" Key keyboard or your "Fn" Key on your keyboard. Either of these, or a combination of both should solve the issue.

Please let us know if you need anything else.

If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.
