How do I control lock keys


The keys above the Function keys (Num Lock, Scroll Lock, maybe speaker volume or display brightness) will be in a different color than the white keys on your keyboard. Usually they will be blue or orange. There is a corresponding function key, usually left of your spacebar, that is in the same color, and it is usually labeled FN.

Press and hold the FN key and press the Num Lock key. Then release both of them. That should turn off your Num Lock.

Good luck!

How to turn on num lock of asus netbook


It depends on notebook model. There is a key on keyboard which allow you to turn num lock on or off. Sometimes "Num Lock" or "Num LK" has blue, red or other color. In this case PRESS "Fn" KEY FIRST, HOLD IT AND THEN PRESS "Num Lock" KEY. For detail instructions write your laptop model.

Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]


Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

I have an aspire 5532 num lock will not activate. I have tried FN and num lock together. The orientation operation works but the numerals will not show. The num lock is labeled white with no FN blue...


If the word NumLk (or NumLock) is written is white, then you will only need to press Num Lock key once to activate Num Lock

Usually software settings do not affect Num Lock or Caps Lock keys and should always work, unless there is a problem with that specific key.

My keyboard is typing numbers and characters instead of letters!


Hello,

Sounds like you have num lock on. The Num lock key is usually the same as Scrlk but to select the Num lock you have to press and hold Shift then press NumLk/ScrLk. A light should light up to indicate the keypad is on/off.
