In the bios is the setting to lock and unlock the "FN" key check that,,,if that doesnt work try system restore to go back to right before the point the calculator locked on the keyboard.To get to system restore click on start,then hover on all programs,then hover on accessories,a drop down box will appear,move curser over to system tools and go to system restore and follow prompts.only use system restore if he can remember the approx. date the calculator locked.Any programs and updates that have been installed since that day will be lost using system restore.

Sounds like you have num-lock turned on in the bios settings. turn off the laptop, turn it on and go into bios setup, usually thats the del key, or F2 key - once inside the bios settings, go through it and look for akeyboard num-lock setting and make sure it is set to disabled. If it was enabled then that was the problem, be sure you save any settings you change or you will have to do it again - hope this fixes your problem.

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.

How do I adjust the screen brightness on a HP Compaq 6510b laptop when the keyboard controls do not function? (running windows XP professional)


Hi, Actually, the problem here is you don?t have any options in windows XP to increase the brightness without using keyboard. HP does not provide any utility with the OS as it is OEM. Try this · Click on start > Click on control panel..... · Click on power options.... · Click on " Change settings plan "..... · Adjust the brightness and save the plan..... And exit... that should work.... OR Replace the keyboard and get the all things working

Hp 510 notebook -graphics - low resolution


I suggest uninstalling SP3... do you have System Restore turned on? Google how to check...

If you do, try rolling back that way. Start>Run>restore <enter> and the restore window will appear. Choose the restore to an earlier time option, and hopefully a choice for 'SP3 installation' will be there. Choose that to roll back... good luck!

Audio Driver not working on Win XP SP2 Pro


hi,
As denoted by your problem description, it seems you are talking about audio software. If this is the case, you can try it re-installing the audio drivers provided by HP website or if you have drivers Disk with you.

Please let me know if you are not talking about software and are referring to Audio device drivers.

Thanks and regards.
