Embedded numeric keypad

I have a Acer Aspire 3610 laptop, that I cannot get the embedded numeric keypad to switch off. If I want to use the letters I need to hold the blue Fn key, otherwise the blue numbers on the top right of the keys show up instead. I have tried turning number lock on but then nothing shows up?

Take it to the nearest repair shop where they will switch the key off because if you continue using it like that one of these days it may create a short circuit in your machine.

The function key for the numbers on the keyboard i can't seem to stop it. When I want to use the letters i have to use the blue funtion key


The "problem" is simply that there is a persistent toggle. If you press "Num Lk" (I've also seen it labeled "Pad Lk" for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the "Fn" key - it's a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the "Fn" key the entire time.
To fix it, just find and press the "Num Lk" or "Pad Lk" key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves "Fn" keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the "Fn" key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

Hi, I have somehow switched the blue numbers on the keyboard, the one at the letters: J; K;L;M;U;I;O and so on. And now instead of them when i type the numbers 1,2,3,4.... will come up instead of...


You have turned on the Number Lock. This enables the number keypad that is embedded in the main keyboard. There is set of three lights to the right of the power button; the middle one indicates when the Num Lock is on or off on the keyboard. To toggle this on or off press and together. The key is between the and the at the lower left of the keyboard.

The user's manual is here: http://static.compusa.com/pdf/Acer_Aspire_5920_Series_NotebookPC-UserGuide.pdf .

I hope this helps.

On my acer aspire 5551 keyboard i dont know how to type the number key... how do i do it?


See page 23 of the manual here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Document/Generic%20UG/Generic%20UG_Acer_1.0_A_A.zip?acerid=634079355121696686&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%205551&OS=722&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=EMEA_27

Num Lock + *

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode.
The keys function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic
operators +, -, *, and /). Use this mode when you need to do a lot of
numeric data entry. A better solution would be to connect an
external keypad.

In other words, hit the "Fn" key, and without letting go, hit "F11". That will allow you to type numbers.

My function key is on and i cant figure out how to turn it off


Hi,


To use the embedded keypad

After pressing Fn+F8 to activate the numeric keypad, you must press the Lock key
(in the top row of the keyboard) to turn number lock on or off.
When number lock is on:
• Keys change to the numeric or arithmetic designations printed on the right side of the
keys in the numeric keypad area.
• The Num Lock status indicator is lit.
• To turn off the embedded keypad, press Fn+F8 again.

For further reference of usage of Function keys, check the HP manual:
