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.

To disable or enable the Fn-functions, try locating them in BIOS using this guide.

Otherwise, try hitting these key-combos, pressing the keys down exactly at once:
Dell = Fn + F4
Compaq = Fn + ScrLk
Lenovo = FN + Num Lock

Others:
Fn + F11
Ctrl + F11
Fn + Num Lock
Fn + Shift + Num Lock

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.

You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

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.
