Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Blue keys 2

How do you turn on the number key pad (blue numbers)?
Comment by dancer54, posted on Apr 04, 2008 I tried it - Did not work for me. Do I have to be in a certain program? I can not get the blue numbers to unlock. I pressed the Fn and the Num Lk keys at the same time - nothing changed on the screen, when I tried the numbers, only the lower case letters belonging to the key printed on the screen. I'm not doing something right??

    Can someone out there give me a free solution? It seems odd that I would have to purchase the Premium Assistance plan for such a simple operational question.

If you press the Fn and Num Lock at exactly the same time, it usually won't work. Hold down Fn key first, then press Num kock. See if that works.

Bios utility


BIOS Setup utility?

Dell laptop?

Lot of information here.......let me see if I can sift through it.........

Post the model number in a Comment.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

As soon as you turn your laptop on, watch for the Dell logo screen.
WATCH the bottom of the screen.
What key does it state to press, to - enter BIOS Setup?

Write it down.
If Windows loads let it load, and run a few minutes. Then turn the laptop off normally.

THIS time AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on that BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. Those are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it. Ignore them.

This will get you into the BIOS Setup utility.

If Windows doesn't load, press the CTRL key, and ALT key, and DELete key, AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your laptop, and start tapping on that enter BIOS Setup key.

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.

When i press other key its not working


NUMBER LOCK
You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.
Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key. When the NumLk has been enabled a LED light is turn on to indicate this function has been selected. Press the NumLk key again to turn off the Number Lock.

Where is num lock key on Dell 5030


If there is no NumLock key then pressing the Fn (Function) buttonshould enable the number pad on the keys that have the Blue numbers onthem. On most laptops (dont know your model) there is a numlock key asthis allows the user to type numbers with two hands and not keep oneholding the Fn button. You would normally press the Fn button and theNumLock option to switch it on and every time you pressed the keys withthe numbers on it would use the number not the letter, pressing the Fnkey with NumLock on would normally allow the letter to be used withouthaveing to disable the NumLock.
This assumes of course that the normal letters are stamped with thenumbers on, if not it is most unusual, I don't think I hav eseen alaptop keyboard without numbers or the NumLock / Fn options. There areUSB number pads available that you can buy, these simply plug in to anavailable USB port and it is like an extension of your keyboard.

Please, please, please, we need to know how we aredoing! Please rate our help to you and leave us a comment so we could go onhelping people like you that need our assistance and expertise! Thank you and, Thankyou for using FIXYA! Bestregards,

Number pad


You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.

Blue numbers


Make sure Num Lock is on (the light belonging to numlock is on).
Then use Fn + Keys with a blue number on it to use the keypad.
Make sure you hold the fn-key, for each number you want to type...
If this doesn't work, try Fn + Esc. If your laptop goes to standby mode, The Function key is allright, and there is another problem. If it does not work, your keyboard may not be installed probably, or may be defect.
Please post some feedback,

Good luck
