Can i assume it's the touchpad on the laptop you're referring to?Have you tried getting new software for it as the existing version may have corrupted itself or windows may have installed a generic version instead which doesn't support scrolling?

It is like my function key is always on. i cannot use delete instead the scroll lock is being activated


Deactivate the scroll lock key by pressing it one more time. The Scroll lock (Pause) key is a remnant of the old text-based displays. It works in DOS mode. Also unlock CAPS key. The Fn key is a control key for the Function keys (F1-F12) and sometimes the ESC key also.

How i can enble function key


HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.

Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.

Release the scroll key


    • 1 Open and power on the laptop.
    • 2 Wait for the laptop to fully boot.
    • 3 Locate the "Scroll" button at the top-left of the keyboard. It is under the volume panel and between the "F12" and "Pause" keys.
    • 4 Press the "Scroll" button.
    • 5 Test it by opening a spreadsheet and using the arrow keys to move around on it. You can open your Microsoft Excel program or create a spreadsheet online by using Google Docs (free online productivity software). The "Scroll Lock" function will keep the current cell selected while the screen moves.
    • 6 Press "Scroll Lock" again to turn it off.

How to unlock cursor


You can't lock or unlock a cursor. What you have is a problem with your touchpad. Some computers have a little switch (many times a button near the touchpad or a keystroke combo of the FN key + a special function key that turns the touchpad on or off.
See if you can find that combo--there should be a picture of a touchpad on one of the special function keys.
Othewise, you will have to use an external mouse.

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

Finger scroll not functioning. Is there possible


This is a common problem with touchpads. You should update the drivers for the touchpad on the laptop manufacturer's website, or if you are sure you have the most recent drivers (You shouldn't be, unless you updated them yesterday) then try this:

(WinXP)
Go to the Control Panel and click Printers and Other Hardware, then Mouse near the bottom. Since there are so many Touchpad devices with different settings this is about as far as I can help you here, there may be a tab on the far right side leading to more settings. You should poke around in here being careful not to change anything unrelated to Virtual Scrolling, or just Scrolling in general.

(Win Vista/7)
Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse
There may be a tab on the far right side of the window at the top.
Click this tab and goto Settings, if it exists. In the new window you may see several options, look for anything related to Scrolling. Mine shows "Virtual Scrolling". Click that, and make sure the check box "Enable vertical scrolling" is checked.

If you don't see any of these things, update your drivers and try again..

Computer locked


there are combinations of function or "hot keys" for enabling or disabling these functions. The NuLk is a combo of the functin key and the NumLk key pressed simultaneously. The scroll lock is the one keeping your mouse from working properly. I'm not familiar with your particular unit to advise which keys are necessary to disable Scroll lock, but they should be marked. Also, some notebooks have a switch to disable the mousepad...Usually indicated by a light located above the pad itself. Good luck Harvester3
