The "Fn" function on keyboard is on. I want it off. Help!

The following letters on my keyboard (uiopjklm) are coming out with their "fn" counterparts (456*1230). My 4 year old was playing on it earlier today- I'm certain he did something to turn the "fn" function on. I just want to turn it off.

Look for something that says FN Lock or look for a Look symbol on the keyboard . It's usually on the SCROLL key.

Best of luck!

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

What is the fn key


I suspect this is a message you're seeing on a notebook, computer or other device that has a keyboard. The "Fn" key is the "Function" key. When the "Fn" key pressed at the same time another key is pressed - in this case the F4 key, a different result will occur when compared to pressing the F4 alone. This works the same way as when you use the SHIFT key and a letter key - instead of a lower case letter, you get an upper case letter.

Typically, the keys on the keyboard are labeled in a light color. Keys that have a second purpose or function, will have a second label printed in a different color / slight smaller text or both. This label may be text or an icon or graphic. In order to invoke the second function of the F4 key, you will need to inspect the keyboard for the key that has is labeled with "Fn" text on it. Here's what a typical "Fn" key looks like:

The Fn key is in the lower left corner of this keyboard.

I hope this answered your quiestion and good luck!

Locked keyboard buttons


You need to find the special function key that, when used with the Fn key, locks the Fn function on. On my keyboard it's the F11 key.
Press the Fn key and that key and your keyboard will return to normal.

You have enabled NUMLOCK
Look for some text marked NUMLOCK in a colour similar to the fn key and hold fn then pres numlock.  SHould be fine after that.

My laptop keeps typeing numbers for the follwoing letters uiopjklm. How do I get it back to typeing letters?


Switch NumLk off

Usually this is done by pressing Fn & F11 keys together

Or just look for the key that has NumLk on it and press it together with Fn
