Unlock the security chip for a ibm t 60 thinkpad


IBM-branded Thinkpad T60 laptops from Lenovo are mobile computing devices that feature a keyboard lock for data security. When the lock is enabled, pressing the keys on the keyboard does not result in input to the computer. The lock hampers attempts by an unauthorized user from gaining access to your computer and your files. Lock your Thinkpad using the Function key. The Function key used in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard expand the laptop's number of available features.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower left corner of your Thinkpad keyboard. Locate the "F2" key in the upper left area of the keyboard. Press and hold the "Fn" key, then press the "F2" key to toggle the "Lock" feature. Release both keys. Hope this helps.

When my number lock is on the letters will not print as stated they will print a number or other


This is normal for a keyboard with embedded number pad, rather than a separate 10-key area. Turn off the number lock to type the alphabetical characters and use the top row of numbers to enter values. Turn on the number lock when entering only a long string of numbers.

Alternatively, connect a USB external keyboard to the notebook. Either get a large keyboard with a separate number pad or get a 10-keypad only (http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=37379 ). Then you can have a normal keyboard and stil have the 10-key functions without toggling the NumLock often.

I hope this helps.

How do I reverse selections on number pad? I presume it is achieved with a key stroke like the caps lock. Which one?


I am not clear on what you want to do ... you don't want to put the 1 where the 7 is ... do you?

You can set your key pad to be numbers or you can use the other features listed on the keys, To change between numbers and features, you press the "Num Lock" key which is normally just above the 7 key.

If you do want to put the 1 where the 7 in, for example, you will have to remap your keyboard. And this is entirely possible ... I am not going into that detail here ... it is beyond the scope of what happens here normally. You can find instructions for remapping from Dell or any other fine computer manufacturer. Also, if you want to pursue this, you could 'goggle' remap my keyboard' for instructions.

My key board with Dell Latitude laptop key board is not working. I purchased MK 250 wireless key board and conneted to TV for display The functional key for selecting the monitor is not there on the new...


The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

This should solve your problem. Just turn off the F-Lock Mode.
Hope this helps if it does please leave a comment or a vote.

How do i use my special features buttons, the ones in blue, do i use the FN button to access them? pls help, as i would like to use them when i type in portuguese.


The [FN] key is the function key for accessing special features that are pre programmed into the key board. I am not sure if they will assist you in typing portuguese as most deal with brightness, monitor selection, cd start and stop and such, at least on my key board they do. Typically the functions they provide are indicated by symbols that are boxed or circled on the normal keys.

The function key is always on, on the keyboard. How do I change it back to a normal keyboard?


Press the NumLk/ScrLk button at the top right corner. That will turn off the 9-key number and symbol buttons. The Function key dosn't get stuck, just the number lock key.

Problem with keyboard or input of certain keys


hi.. is that a bi-lingual keyboard that you purchased? If so, what model? If that's a toshiba laptop w/ a bi-lingual keyboard, press the left (shift+ctrl) buttons for 10-15secs then release it. You should be able to bring back the normal function of your keyboard. If your having problems pressing the "n" key and it replaces it with a number on the screen when you type it, it's most likely that you enabled the "num lock" function of your keyboard, on Toshiba press FN+F11, on Dell FN+F11 also i think, it may differ on other models, sometimes FN+ Print Screen or Pause (above F11).

Hope this helps.

Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
