Key popped out

My 2 year old popped out the left Ctrl and the FN keys with the white plastic piece behind each key taken out too. I can not get them back in. Also am I able to glue the little black rubber piece behind the Ctrl key since he ripped that off too.

Where is the number lock on this keyboard?

As with most laptops there is no number lock key. you dont have the number pad like most desktop keyboards. you have a (fn) key this works for all the keys that have a square around them it may be blue/white/purple, and is located on the bottom left should be the second key on the bottom left row right next to the ctrl key. but once again there is no number lock key.

fn+f2 means your pressing two keys at once
the function key (fn - usually a different color - maybe blue - than the letter keys) and the f2 key

hold down the fn first then the f2 - look for the fn on the lower right or left next to Ctrl keys

My lenovo keypad problem still not solved.When I press the key where two virtual keys are taken?For example when I press 'O' '6' are taken.My laptop manufacturer is LEnovo and model number Lenovo Notebook...

It seems that your Num key is active.So when you press any character then No are display .
To resolve this just keep on pressing the Fn key which normally left hand side of ctrl key ,Hold that key and then press the Num lock which normally togle with Delete key .
Solution :- Keep pressing Fn key + press Delete Key .Problem will solve

Presario r3000 laptop 2/3yrs old occasionally the screen goes black . if i adjust screen open past 90 degrees the display returns.???how is thescreen powered from the base.??? larry thanks

The display is is flat, thin and flexible. There may now be a break point in the conductor...fixed by replacing same.

Alternative solution is to use external monitor. I'm almost certain your laptop has this capability...look on rear panel for a D-sub 3-row VGA connector. Plug in a VGA monitor and enable through keyboard Fn-(combination key)...look at key symbols for one that looks like a monitor.
