Your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

Hi,
To use the numeric pad on your keyboard you need to press the NumLock key. However, on laptops you usually need to press the Fn key simultaneously. Fn key is located on the bottom right or left of your keyboard. Keep it pressed and the press the NumLock key(top right) once.
Then you will be able to use the numeric keypad. To revert repeat the steps above once again.

How do i lock and un lock my hp compaq 6220 lap top my cat keeps jumping on the key pad


Hi,
There is no lock for the key pad, all you need is another USB key pad to deactivate the on board keypad.
The cheapest way is a "rolled newspaper", use that to bash that annoying cat!

Hope that helps you out!

I can not detach my IBM Think pad 2662 lap top from the driver


I had the same issue. Here's what I did. Not sure if it will work for you. But give it a try.
1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.
2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.
3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.
4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.

Even if you didn't get try this too.


1. Make bootable CD which contains Norton Ghost or other disk image software
2. Boot your system using bootable CD with Norton Ghost software, u can use Hiren's CD ISO image. If u don't know about hiren just google it.

2. Once you boot up , open Norton Ghost click LOCAL-> PARTITION->FROM IMAGE

3. Now "look in" for "[DellRestore]FAT drive" and select this drive (this is recovery partition)

4. Now go to "IMG" folder and select FI.GHO file

5. Click Open and there you go... Process started

Number keys on think pad lock using openoffice.org


On Thinkpads laptops the keys on the right hand side double up as the number keypad. To switch on the Number lock key pad on - press and hold the Shift key and press the NumLk/ScrLk key, it is above the F11 key, the Num lock LED will also light up. Press these keys again to turn off the Numer Lock.
