On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.
Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.
easy boot up pc press pause key on key board and not the bios number that gets displayed on bootup. google search the bios number and it should tell you the type of motherboard you have.
You can press the key to go into the bios settings and note the bios number from the settings also.
there is a Fn key on the board. hold that and look for the number lock key and press it. each system is different so it will be either NumLk, NumLock, or a 1 with a lock symbol. Acer generally places this on a F key many times F7.
look along the "F" key row for the NumLk or picture of the number 1 in a square. then hold down the Fn key on the lower left of the board. press the "F" key that corresponds to it and this will disable it.
DOES THE MOUSE WORK OK?
If not, re-boot and press the [F8] key to get into the "Safe Mode" screen. See if the keyboard works in Safe Mode. If so, go tothe Control Panel and select "keyboard" and update the drivers.
If not, then re-boot and select the [F8} key again, but choose "Start computer in last known good configuration"
If it still doesn't work, but the mouse does, then the keyboard is disconnected or the connector is loose; open 'er up and connect it.
The num lock has been pressed.
I don't know which Fn key you need to press to turn off the number lock. Look at the Fn key for a symbol - number pad, press this and it should release the number lock.
Have a look at your manual for this infomation.
Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
