Hello

If the key is physically stuck in the "down" or pressed postion, the key may have become disconnected from the mechanism underneath that returns it to the "up" position.

All keys on all keyboards can be removed. This includes laptops. On laptops, the keys typically have less travel (up and down) than a desktop keyboard and the key attaches to the keyboard differently.

In either case, use a small screwdriver or your fingernail and gently lift up on the key - to return it to the "up" position. When in that position, see if the rest of the keyboard works.

If it does, you can simply lift up on the key and remove it from the keyboard. The support that is underneath will either be removed with the key or will remain on the keyboard.

Re-attaching the key involves aligning the key with the ends of the support bracket and snapping it back into place. (Most keyboards have a white plastic structure that forms a X on 2 sides - allowing the key to move up and down.)

With the key removed, look at the edges of the surrounding keys to get an idea of how it attaches, align the parts and press it back into place.

Lenovo p580 numlock off


What options have you tried ??

Number Lock on IBM Laptop Computers b> Laptop computers have the advantage being portable and self-contained, but among their drawbacks is a keyboard without a separate number keypad. While for most applications number keypads are unnecessary, they can be useful for data entry. Laptops sometimes provide a number keypad by giving certain keys double duty, allowing them to enter numbers rather than letters when a "Number Lock" setting is turned on. Number Lock, however, can get turned on accidentally, or enabled by an operating system by default, which can really mess up your typing. If typing "M" ends up displaying a "0" on your screen, Number Lock is probably the problem.

Try to locate the function key. On a T-series ThinkPad, it's in the lower left hand corner. It should be labeled "Fn," and the lettering may be blue, green or red instead of white. If your laptop lacks a "Fn" key, use the "Shift" key for Step 3 below instead. Locate the key labeled with "NmLk". On a T-series ThinkPad it shares a key with "ScrLk" which sits on the very top row between the "PrtSc" and "Pause" keys. On other IBM laptops, the "NmLk" key might share a key with "Delete." While holding down the "Fn" key or the "Shift" key, depending on your model, press the "NmLk" key. This should turn off Number Lock and restore your keyboard to its usual state. Number Lock on an IBM laptop is a "toggle" setting. You can turn Number Lock on by following the same steps.
also Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

Vostro 1000 Fn locked


This is ****. Respondent doesn't know the model in question and his suggestion is of no help--there is no "blue lock" graphic imprinted anywhere on the Vostro 1000 keyboard. A user with this sort of question is already frustrated and does not need his desperation exacerbated by a nonsensical response from someone calling himself "RescueTech".
The user, on the other hand, may be excused for believing the problem is a locked Fn key--Dell does you no favours by printing the alternate number labelling in blue, AND the problem is reversed as long as the Fn key is held down--but the actual culprit is Num Lk. You'll find it on the top-most row, five keys from the upper-right-hand corner. Press it once and your problem will vanish.

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

Keyboard Issues/Errors


I would gather that your keyboard has been changed somehow to another country keyboard. Please check in your control panel, keyboard and see if eng usa is selected.

The other suggestion is pressing and holding fn key, num lock key at the same time. You should see a light going off and on when you do this on your system.

If keyboard selected is english, and num lock is off, I would turn your keyboard upside down and give it a good shake. Sometimes a paperclip, or staple gets underneath the keys.
