Key Pad Quandry

I recently bought the think pad off ebay. I have no idea the functions of the key pad since I have never even owned a lap top before. I have searched everywhere on the web and can not find an instruction manual. Where can I get one?

How do i lock and un lock my hp compaq 6220 lap top my cat keeps jumping on the key pad


Hi,
There is no lock for the key pad, all you need is another USB key pad to deactivate the on board keypad.
The cheapest way is a "rolled newspaper", use that to bash that annoying cat!

Hope that helps you out!

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

I can not detach my IBM Think pad 2662 lap top from the driver


I had the same issue. Here's what I did. Not sure if it will work for you. But give it a try.
1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.
2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.
3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.
4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.

Even if you didn't get try this too.


1. Make bootable CD which contains Norton Ghost or other disk image software
2. Boot your system using bootable CD with Norton Ghost software, u can use Hiren's CD ISO image. If u don't know about hiren just google it.

2. Once you boot up , open Norton Ghost click LOCAL-> PARTITION->FROM IMAGE

3. Now "look in" for "[DellRestore]FAT drive" and select this drive (this is recovery partition)

4. Now go to "IMG" folder and select FI.GHO file

5. Click Open and there you go... Process started

Touch pad failed.


Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.

Key pads not responding


Does the computer not respond to your keyboard in any way?
If warranty is still valid, contact the shop where you bought it, or contact acer..

Did something happen to the laptop? Fallen, water on it?
