That would be the Scroll Lock. Do you have a Scroll Lock key? Press it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

What key is scroll lock on presario compaq cq 56


Don't you have a key with a padlock icon?
That should be your scroll lock.
If the color is not white, you may have to press first a function key with the same color as the padlock icon.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Regards
Shauqat

Security unlock?


try pressing the buttons:

There are 3 lock symbols on the keyboard:
- the NUM LOCK that has the number 9 in it
- the CAPS LOCK that has the letter A in it
- the SCROLL LOCK that has the arrow down in it

- NUM LOCK is always turned on by default

What is the symbol with the light indicator for?


That's the Scroll Lock indicator.

While not really used for anything today, Scroll Lock used to serve a purpose in DOS text editors - if it was on, and you'd press the Down arrow on your keyboard, the document would scroll down. If it was off, you would move your cursor to the line below it.

It should also work on Microsoft Excel - try it. Open up Excel, make sure Scroll Lock is on, and press the Down or Up arrows. Now turn it off, and see what happens.

If you don't know how to turn it off, search for a key marked "Scroll Lock" or any short versions of that name. If it's in a different color, you may need to press Fun+ScrollLock for the light to go off.

Acer keyboard m# SK9625, something wrong w/ settings


It is quite possible you have installed the "EURO" symbols package either from microsoft or elsewhere.

If you installed software that came with your keyboard then that is the place to start.

Check the options in there to see if you have enabled the "Euro" symbol / character.

Scroll Lock on -- mystery


On the Logitech LX710 Lazer the Scroll Lock option is toggled by holding down the "Function" key and pressing the "Pause/Break" key. If you look at the P/B key you will see a little orange symbol of an arrow pointing down to remind you of this feature. This can be disabled in the Setpoint panel by selecting Keyboard and Keyboard Inactive Keys then place a check in Disable Scroll Lock so you may have to remove a check mark first.
