Keyboard stuck in Fn mode

I've tried several combination keys to release this (as mentioned on other sites) but none seem to work on this one. An external keyboard works fine. If I hold down the Fn key, the keys on the right side of the keyboard function properly. Any other ideas? Thanks.

Laptop touchpad not working


Dear John,

Although you did not mention your laptop model, Medion laptops use a combination of the 'Fn' key with one of the function keys on the top part of your keyboard to enable/disable the touchpad, that can be F3 or F6 or F8. So, try pressing the 'Fn' key and, while keeping it pressed, press also the F3 key and release them. Check if the touchpad now works. If it does not, try the same operation with 'Fn' plus the F6 keys or 'Fn with the F8 keys.

If none of these combinations works for you, maybe you will need to download and re-install the driver for your touchpad, from the Medion web site. go to www.medion.com site, select your country or region and then look for the drivers page for your laptop model. Select the driver for the touchpad offered there, download and install it in your machine.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Miguel L. Martins

My numeric keyboard is not working, the num lock is on.


Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it does the same thing? Also check your keyboard to see if there is some type of key combination that locks or unlocks the numeric keypad. If so, usually you will have to hit the FN key or the ALT key or the CTRL key plus some other key to get it to toggle.

HOW TO DEACTIVATE TEH Fn KEY IN DELL LAPTOP


Hi names Rui, to turn Fn in you dell you need to:

1. Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key.

2. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens.

3. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it. So i hope this will help you.

My Compaq laptop keyboard seems to be stuck in ALT mode. All the keys which have an alternate character in the upper right corner, will only type those characters. For example, the "m" key will only type...


Never ran into this problem myself but a friend of mine has. He said what fixed his what holding Fn + Num Lock and it remedied his problem.
Unless your key is stuck/broken you can also try a can of air and try to blow it out and or pull the key and make sure its not stuck down.
But deff try the holding Fn + Num Lock method first.

Aplogies for the different combinations, but there are different combinations with different manufaturers


If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Ibm t30 keyboard stuck in odd mode


Hello,

You've activated Euro mode. This is toggled by pressing holding the Fn key plus an Fkey that has an icon in the same color as the lettering on the Fn key that looks like the Euro symbol. Press the Fn key plus the Euro key to toggle out of Euro mode.
