The lock 9 is for num lock.

Usually there is a 'Fn' button on the keyboard of a laptop. It has to be somewhere near the 'ctrl' 'windows' or 'alt' button on the left.

If you press and hold the 'Fn' key and then the numlock 9, you will toggle numlock on and off.

The 'Fn' of the key is normally written in another color. There are several buttons on the keyboard thet has a same color number or sign. To enable this signs and numbers, you have to press and hold the 'Fn' key and then the key with the desired number or sign.

SOURCE: there is a symbol above

Not knowing what the symbol looks like, it is hard to say.
You have to press and hold the "Fn' button to enable the function

In most cases it is to change resolution and/or display options, if it is a sign with two rectangles / one rectangle.

What does the lock with the 9 in it mean and how do I get it to go off?


t s64nds 352e the number lock is on. To remove it look for a key with 'Num Lock' on and press it. You may need to press the function (Fn or Func - depending on which laptop you have). The key is usually located at the top right hand side of the keyboard.

Dell latitude e4300 does locks in the windows xp screen and the lock-9 sign on F4 is turned on. what do I do?


try booting to the safe mode, or last known good configuration (F8 At boot)
if you can get to either then maybe try a system restore to a time when the system ran correctly.
You can also run diagnostics by holding the Fn key while pressing the power button on a cold boot

On boot up a lock symbol with a '9' is lit & nothing else happens


the "9" inside a lock means that your Num Lock button has been pressed. If all you see is the ">" then maybe you are looking at what's called a DOS prompt, and I have no idea why that would display. Try holding the Power Switch for 10 seconds and restart your computer. Hopefully things will be better, and you know where your Num Lock key is.
