Hi melissamhahn..
Try this solution to your problem
*************************************
To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

I am trying to use the "insert" key on my asus k52f but can't get it to work. "Insert" is shown on the "0" key, I would think "shift + 0" would be insert but that...


Please check if you have a Fn key in the left side of the keyboard, press that and then simultaneously press the Insert key. Please check if insert is in a different color. All keys or functions present in a different color on top need to be pressed along with Fn key.


If you still face issue please reply to this post.
Thank you for contacting Fixya

Touch pad is locked and dont know how to unlock it, the mousr is frozen


On the function keys at the top of the keyboard are the function keys (F1-F12) you should have one that has a picture of the touchpad on it (on my keyboard it is F7 yours may be on a different one). Hold down the control key and click on that function key.

Some letter Keys on my Keyboard are numbers why


You have enabled the NumLock function of your keyboard. Find the NumLck key on your keyboard. It is normally on the top row of keys or above the numbers keypad. Then press Fn (Function) and NumLck at the same time. That will toggle OFF the numLock setting. It may be different function key combination on the different computer manufacturer. Dell is usually Fn + F4, Compaq is Fn + ScrLK. Each manufacturer may use a different set of key

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

I have had this netbook (asus: 1005H) for 8 months. Everything worked fine, but now the function keys won't respond? Anything I can do? Danny Doss


Within this link is the documentation for your laptop:
http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=Ues16Gw2OcqSjUNt
You might need to scroll down to find the English version, and then download it from one of the links.

It's possible that there's a function key turn on/off key (or sequence of keys) that might have been pressed. This turned off the functions keys so they're acting as different keys. If your function keys have multiple symbols on them, then they can act as different keys when in this different mode. You need to switch back to the 'function key' mode. Check out the documentation and see if there's something like this.

If this has helped please remember to give me the appropriate 'thumbs up' feedback. Thanks, and good luck!
