System control buttons not working on Toshiba Satellite a660


You can adjust these settings on the Make the keyboard easier to use page in the Ease of Access Center. 1. Open the Make the keyboard easier to use page by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Ease of Access, clicking Ease of Access Center, and then clicking Make the keyboard easier to use. 2. Select the options that you want to use: • Turn on Mouse Keys. This option sets Mouse Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Instead of using the mouse, you can use the arrow keys on your keyboard or the numeric keypad to move the pointer. • Turn on Sticky Keys. This option sets Sticky Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Instead of having to press three keys at once (such as when you must press the CTRL, ALT, and DELETE keys together to log on to Windows), you can use one key by turning on Sticky Keys and adjusting the settings. This way, you can press a modifier key and have it remain active until another key is pressed. • Turn on Toggle Keys. This option sets Toggle Keys to run when you log on to Windows. Toggle Keys can play an alert each time you press the CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK, or SCROLL LOCK keys. These alerts can help prevent the frustration of inadvertently pressing a key and not realizing it. • Turn on Filter Keys. This option sets Filter Keys to run when you log on to Windows. You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally. • Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys. This option makes keyboard access in dialog boxes easier by highlighting access keys for the controls in them. If that does not work you may need to visit the web site of your computer manufacturer to see if they have some specific software installed on your computer that controls key functions.

How to lock or unlock a Samsung Intensity


Many people like the Samsung Intensity because of its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. However, one drawback to the phone for some users is that, unlike a flip phone, the numeric keypad is always exposed. When the Intensity is kept in a pocket or purse, this can result in accidental phone calls, multiple all-black pictures, and sudden activation of the voice command feature.

Luckily, you can lock the phone's keypad to keep it from engaging any functions when you're not using it. Locking the keypad is easy. Just hold down the 0 (zero) button for about two seconds, and a message will pop up telling you that the keypad has been locked. While it's locked, you won't be able to use the numeric keypad.

The standard way to unlock the phone is to press the upper right options button (the one that you would typically press to bring up your Contacts list) and then press the center OK button. (You will see prompts for both of these buttons when the phone is locked.)

However, there is also a quicker way to unlock the phone -- just slide the keyboard open. Sliding the keyboard open will unlock your numeric keypad immediately, and even when you close the keyboard the phone will remain unlocked. If you want to lock it again, you'll have to hold down the zero button to re-lock it.

You can also enable Auto Key Lock mode, in case you think you'll forget to lock your phone. With Auto Key Lock mode turned on, your phone will automatically lock itself when it's not in use and the backlight goes off. You can turn Auto Key Lock mode on or off from the Phone Settings menu.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    The child locks are stuck it only opens from the outside


    there is a slider switch on the door(between door and frame) that you can lock or unlock the child locks to prevent them from opening the door from inside but still can open door from outside----just slide the lock switch to enable or disable the child lock.

    if they are stuck/stiff---you may have to remove the door panel for repair.

    Usually they work free with a liitle lubricant(WD-40) to slide easier.

    Keyboard on my Dell studio 15 is locked


    Use your touchpad or mouse to save all open documents and close all programs. Shut down the computer. Be sure to click "Turn Off" instead of "Restart."

    Unplug your Dell Inspiron 2600 and close the lid.
    Carefully turn the laptop over. Remove the battery. The battery has a sliding latch and lock. Unlock the battery by sliding the lock to the unlock position. Slide the latch and remove the battery when the left edge pops up.

    Wait one minute and replace the battery. Slide the lock back into the locked position.

    Connect your adapter and restart your system.
