I cannot shut off the 'fn' key from its calucations display.


If you press and hold the Fn key and then simultaneously press the Num Lock key at the top right of your keyboard you either enable or disable the Alternative Symbols of the following Multi-symbol keys:

Num Lock Disabled: M . / J K L ; U I O P 7 8 9 0
Num Lock Enabled: 0 . / 1 2 3 + 4 5 6 - 7 8 9 *

I have a hp dv5000 multimedia notebook. Till yesterday, everything was working fine, but this morning before starting up the comp, I cleaned the keppad witha soft brush and then switched on the power...


Remove the power chord. Remove the battery. Remove all the external peripherals. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Put the battery back in. Turn on the laptop.
It should work fine now.

if not turn the laptop upside down then slap it lightly 3-4 times
this will then surely fix the problem and if not then take it to the service center.

I would like a manual for the latitude D610 keyboard to know how to use the symbol that are highlighted in bleu


In the lower left hand corner of your Dell Keyboard -- you will see a Blue Key labeled -- "Fn". This key allows you the use of ALL of the other blue labeled keys on your keyboard. You must press the FN key and the other "blue" key at the same time for them to work.

The keys on the right side of the keyboard with the blue numbers on them are controlled by the Numlock key and Fn key. The light at the top of the keyboard near the power button, with the number "9" inside a picture of a lock, will be lit if the Numlock is enabled.
You may need to press the Fn key to type numbers even if the Numlock is turned on. There is a setting in the BIOS called Enable Keypad and if you set it to By Numlock you will not have to hold down this key to type a number.

If you are still having trouble with these keys, please see the general keyboard troubleshooting guide

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.

How to gat it to type letters it is stuck on numbers


Number Lock is enabled.

Look for a 'function' button usually labeled 'fn' and in a different color.

Hold that down and then hit the Num Lock button.

If you don't have a 'fn' button just hit the Num Lock button.

Number an letter combo won't change back to letter


Sounds like you have number lock on. To turn this off you'll need to hold the function (Fn) button and press number lock. I'm not sure which is the numlock button on your model but it looks like on other models it's F11. Make sure you hold the Fn button down until you've pressed Numlock though or it won't work.
