The letter s and D on my laptop act as a volume control function. How do I fix this problem?


Most laptops use a key combination for these kinds of tasks. Things like volume, wifi access, or screen brightness can be modified usually by holding a function key. This key is usually marked with "Fn" and you hold it down while pressing on of the F keys at the top of the keyboard (F1, F2, etc til F12.) to perform the task. Now, some computers have a "function lock" ability. Which basically means you do not have to hold that Fn key to do tasks. Could be that has been enabled. If you provide the laptop make and model we can look into it. =)

If holding down Fn and the desired function key does not do what you are expecting then you likely need to re-install the Energy Management Software, you can download it from http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/downloads/default.page?

Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

Cat sat on laptop changed screen brightness. its to dark how do i brighten monitor


There is a master function key that you hold down while tapping another function located on the keyboard. This all depends on the model of laptop. Next time try to giva a little more info like make and model, which is located on the bottom. The function key or Fn key is usually located on the keyboard near the Alt and Control key lower left. while holding this key down, you tap the corresponding brightness key on the number of the keyboard, some times the brightness is on the 4 arrows on the right side of the keyboard...sometimes they are the numbers 6 or 7 look for what appears to be a symbol that looks like the sun or a light. Hold down Fn and tap the key that brightens the display.

How do I use NumLoc on lenovo t-60? No keys for it?


If you hold down the Fn (function key) and hit one of the NumLock keys, this will type those NumLock characters usually printed in blue on the keytop). Also this is different on virtually every laptop, but one key should say NumLock or have a picture of a lock on it in blue. This is the NumLock and it is toggled by holding the Fn key and that key.
