Check your laptop for a speaker icon on one of your keys, mine is on the Esc key, once found press the Fn key and hold, now press the key that the speaker icon is on and sound should be restored.

My letter keys now produce numbers!


You probably have accidently turned on numlk which turns mjkluio789 into 0123456789

Most laptops require a two key combination of Fn (function key) and NumLk (numeric lock key) to toggle it off and on. Sometimes there is a seperate NumLk by itself as it is on most desktop keyboards.


If this doesn't do it let me know the make and model of your laptop and I'll see if I can help further.

It sounds like you've got the Number Turned On.

Their should be a button with NUM LOCK on it and somewhere on the keyboard and an LED with NUM LOCK next to it which will be on.

The keyboard on my laptop has numbers and keys on it


Hi,
It sounds like the Num Lock is on.

Depending on the make of the laptop there is a few different ways to turn it off.
Either just hit the Num Lock key and see if it goes off, hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key or hold down the shift key and hit the Num Lock key.



Regards.

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.

Accidently hit the key lock button


Hi

You can overcome this problem by disconnecting the AC power cord, to turn off the power. Then press and HOLD the select button and reconnect the AC power cord.

This should clear the Lock.
