(FuNction key) A keyboard key that works like a shift key to activate the second function on a dual-purpose key, typically found on laptops to reduce keyboard size. It is different than the function keys F1, F2, etc. It is also a real nuisance when the PageUp and PageDn keys are placed on the Up and Down Arrow keys and have to be activated by pressing the Fn key.

Hope this helps you,
George

    One of the more useful functions for the "FN'" key is to easily disable the wireless adapter. This way you're sure that you connecting at a faster rate (usually), and also it's more safe in public areas because of hackers at Hot Spots.

If you press and hold the Fn key and then simultaneously press the Num Lock key at the top right of your keyboard you either enable or disable the Alternative Symbols of the following Multi-symbol keys:

Num Lock Disabled: M . / J K L ; U I O P 7 8 9 0
Num Lock Enabled: 0 . / 1 2 3 + 4 5 6 - 7 8 9 *

I want to know how to use the function button


The function button, or FN button, is used just like the shift key or ctrl key. Hold the FN button down and press the key with the pre programmed function you desire to use. For instance, on an HP 1245 the function or short cut key to put the computer in sleep mode is FN+F5. The Keys with functions have that feature indicated by a symbol for the function in a squared circle. Most of these are your F keys at the very top row of the keyboard. Some are on the number pad keys.

When i type the letters on my keyboard, the numbers show up instead. i don't know how to revert the system or functions back to normal. i must've accidentally pressed a button to change the characters when...


Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

Compaq Presario C700 numbers showing up instead of letters


Either address your "Num Lock" Key keyboard or your "Fn" Key on your keyboard. Either of these, or a combination of both should solve the issue.

Please let us know if you need anything else.

You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

I hope this helps
Cheers
