Fn+num lk not working


There is no standard meaning to any Fn +Fx key combinations. It depends on the manufacturer and the laptop model.
Usually the Fn key works in combination with the Function (Fn) keys F1-F12, and maybe ESC.

In my Toshiba, there is an overlaid numeric pad that can be activated by pressing Fn +F11. Once the sequence is pressed the F11 key led remains lit, and the overlay active. Pressing the F11 key restores the normal keyboard. Fn+Num Lock does not do anything.
Please check you laptop's manual to familiarize yourself with the uses of the Fn key on YOUR computer.

From the manual:

Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hotkey command.
- or -
Press and hold down the fn key, briefly press the second key of the hotkey command, and then
release both keys at the same time.
Muting speaker sound (fn+home)
Press fn+home to mute speaker sound. Press the hotkey again to restore speaker sound.
Increasing speaker sound (fn+pg up)
Press fn+pg up to increase speaker sound. Hold down the hotkey to increase speaker sound incrementally.
Decreasing speaker sound (fn+pg dn)
Press fn+pg dn to decrease speaker sound. Hold down the hotkey to decrease speaker sound incrementally.

My function keys doesn't work in my laptop toshiba satellite c660-a047


The function key, labeled "Fn" and located in the lower-left corner of your keyboard, is a useful feature. By pressing "Fn" along with one of the numbered function keys at the top of the keyboard (F1 through F12), you can adjust your screen brightness, enable and disable your touchpad or wireless modem, lock your computer and complete a variety of other tasks. These keys will not work if the "Fn" key is not pressed along with them. While the "Fn" key itself does not turn on and off, there are settings that can make it behave differently, or seem to be disabled.

Click "Start," then "All programs" or "Programs," then "Toshiba." Select "Utilities," then "Accessibility." Place a checkmark in the box to make sure the "Fn" key will work whether you press it simultaneously with the F1 through F12 keys or immediately before pressing those keys. Customize the other options on the screen, then click "OK." Test your "Fn" key. One of the easiest ways to do this is by pressing "Fn" and "Esc" at the same time. This toggles the sound on your computer on and off, and will show a speaker icon on your screen if it works. Press "Fn" and "Num lock" at the same time if the "Fn" key still does not work. Use the "F11" key if your laptop has no "Num Lock" key. Test the "Fn" key again, using the same method as in Step 4. Locate a licensed repair technician if the key still is not working. A hardware issue may be at fault. Hope this helps.

My speakers do not work


The Dell has a "Fn" key. The "Fn" used with other keys control special features. I have a Dell keyboard here, on it holding the "Fn" and pressing "End" will alternately mute/unmute the speakers. "Fn" + "Page up" will raise volume, "Fn" + "Page down" will lower. You may have the volume muted, or turned all the way down.
The keyboard I have is from an 1100, your "Fn" key combinations may vary from mine.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TURN THE VOLUME UP ON MY TOSHiBA LAPTOP.


On your keyboard is a special key with the letters Fn on it. It has a particular color. Also on your keyboard usually on the Page up and Page down keys should be speaker icons in the same color as the Fn keytop. Also nearby the Page Up Page Down key and usualy the end key is a speaker icon with a line through it.

You press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the Page up Page down or the actual keys that have the speakers on them. To mute or unmute you press and hold the Fn key down and while holding it down press the key that has the speaker with the line through it.

That should give you keyboard control over your speakers.

Additionally, if you double click the speaker icon next to the time display you will bring up the controls for all volumes on your laptop. Check to see that wave is not muted and master is nearly all the way up, the wave scale should be one tick short of the top. For CD Audio, you will want to do the same with that volume slider.

Any other questions just use the comment box to ask.
