Question about LG X-Note LM50 Notebook
HAVE A light on my laptop that has a picture of a lock with a 1 on it my key k when i type it is a 2 and u is a 4 m is a 0 if i hold down the FN key down and type it works but i don't want to type with 1 hand all the time
Thanks for identifying the light, that is the problem, it is the Numberpad lock indicator that tells you the keyboard is in numeric pad configuration.
Switching it back is a simple matter of finding the num lk key or a key with the same picture beside the light. when you find it hold down the Fn key then press the num lk key and it will switch back to the regular mode.
This is a "feature" of most laptops and although rarely useful is apparently liked by enough people that they keep putting it in ;D

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.
This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.
If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.
The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard
Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.
In the registry, open the below folders.
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.
0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.
On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.
You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination
would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.
hope this helps
