Key board light not working

Please specify the Make & Model of the Laptop. But, in general, there will be Function (Fn) Key or a different key combination that you need to press in order to turn the keyboard light on (if your laptop is equipped with keyboard lighting...).

I have dell vostro 1000 labtop an the screen is just black wen i turn it on there is no light but i can here the sound so i no it is on i just can see anything can anyone help.

It sounds like the laptop is set to use an external monitor.
Check the function keys for an icon that looks somewhat like a monitor
turn the unit on and wait until it is started
then press and hold the function (fn) key
While holding the fn key press the function key with the icon (it is a stepping control)
this should, after one or two presses bring up your on-board screen.

Good luck, I hope this helps

Need to find list/definitions of "function Keys"

Please open this LINK, scroll down to page no. 2-5 i.e. the section with "To use the Function Hot Keys Fn". There you'll find the details about the functional function keys of your compaq. It seems your function key i.e. Fn key is activated, to deactivate, press and hold down the Fn key while you tap the Numlock key once.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi my dell vostro key board has locked ,right hand side of keyboard blue light with a lock and 9 inside it .tried everything can you help

The 9 lock key means that your Number lock key is on. The blue light usually means that your blue tooth is on. Try connecting an external USB keyboard to see if it functions normally. If so then you need to have your keyboard replaced.

My cat walked across my laptop and now I have lights on I don't think were there before and can't figure out what they mean. On the top of the keyboard there is a red light that keeps blinking on the far...

I can definitely help you but I need to know at least what the model of the laptop is. It is a gateway laptop right? it should have the model number on the bottom of the laptop. Are you using it now? I'd say the \'c\' sounds like caps lock but that doesn't appear to be the issue since you are typing in normal characters...

The cat definitely turned on a few things, the keys have multiple functions... hard to say what is what without the model of the laptop, but you should have a FUNCTION key or FN key... and then the keys themselves (such as KJHLKS) have multiple functions, usually written in the same color as the FN key... You can just play around with them and see what turns on what..

Let me know the model and I can be more specific,

Compaq v2000 function key not working?

To check system board, connect external keyboard and see if all keys function normally. If the external works OK, check connections on laptop keyboard, making sure contacts are clean and fully seated in the ZIF socket If the external fails to function properly it is the system board.
