To fix this problem please follow these steps:
1. Take out the battery unplug the power supply and then press and hod the power button for 30 seconds.
2. Try to turn on the systems. if it works on if it doesn't then probably its a hardware failure, in most of the case its ram (memory)
taking out and reputing it will help you.
memory is installed at the bottom plastic only do it if you are expert in doing it, else consult a technician.

I have my frigidaire washer mashine an it wont turn on only the word lock apears in the little window


Thank you for your inquiry, alba pinales!

From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is not operating and it is displaying the word "lock". Typically, the "lock' stands for the control lock feature. If you look at your control panel you should see a padlock symbol depending on your model you should be able to hold down the button that is near that symbol for three to five seconds. That should release the lock if you need any further assistance please reconnect and provide me with your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your washer. With that information I can better assist you. -Matt

The letter L is become number 3


You likely have number lock on.On most laptops, there is a fn key near the lower left corner of the keyboard. Pressing the fn key and some other certain key at the same time will turn on and off number lock. If you can find a key with num lock printed somewhere on it or near it, or if you can find the symbol that looks like a padlock with a 9 on it, that stands for number lock, that is the key that (in conjunction with the fn key) will turn on and off the number lock feature.

Asus K501 laptop - what is the 2nd light with a number 1 in a padlock. This is between the Wireless and Caps lock leds. Laptop will not connect with wireless, ok wired. thanks


The number 1, in a padlock, means "Number Lock". If your computer has a numberpad, this is fine. If it doesn't, it means that the letter keys to the right will act as numbers (often printed on the keytop in a blue colour).

What do; the four little lights below my keyboard mean? One is the battery, one is the internet, but the other two? Especially the third from the lert with the icon that looks like a stack of pancakes?


The icon that looks like a stack of pancakes is the one for the hard disk drive and the indicator with the icon flickers or lights whenever there is hard disk activity. The reading / writing of large files will cause the hard disk drive activity indicator to light almost steadily until the file reads / writes have completed. There are two icons that look like little padlocks. One has the character 1 and the other has letter A. The padlock icon with the 1 in the middle is the indicator for NumLk or Numeric Keypad lock. Pressing the Fn key and the key with NumLk on it turns the Numeric Keypad on and off. When it is on, pressing the keys for UIOJKL will enter 456123 facilitating entry of numbers with the keys arranged as a keypad along with the top row of keys 789. Finally, the padlock icon with the A in the middle is the Caps Lock indicator which lights when the Caps Lock key is pressed allowing subsequent presses of letter keys to be capitals without having to press the shift key. Pressing Caps Lock a second time turns off the Caps Lock. Similarly, a second press of Fn and NumLk turns off the NumLk.

WHEN I HIT THE KEYS WITH LETTERS AND NUMBERS ON THEM THE NUMBERS ARE COMING UP HOW DO I GET THAT FUNCTION OFF


Hi,

Make sure that Number Lock is not turned on. (You can tell if Number Lock is turned on by looking for the LED indicator light shaped like a padlock with a number 1 in it.) If this light is on, press the NumLk key to turn off Number Lock.

That should resolve your problem.

Your NUM LOCK key is turned on. Look closely at the top row of keys, you should see one that has an icon of a number inside a padlock, or it might say NumLock, NumLk, etc. Press your function key, and while holding it down, press the numlock key as well. You want to press them both at the same time.

You should also see a light somewhere as well. Usually an icon of a number inside a padlock. When you turn Number Lock off, this light will go out.

My function keys are turned on. how do i turn it


Press the Fn key and the Num Lk key... the reason that your j is a 1 is that the J key is the equivalent of the 1 when the Number lock key is activated. There is a little light up near the power button that shows a lock with a 9 in it... hit the Fn key and the Num Lk key till that light goes out.

Mismatch typing and when pressing function key its ok but its too problem so pls how can i fix my keyboard according to typing rules, when i press 'j' it becomes 1


You need to turn off the Number Lock. Usually there is a picture of a one "1" with a light near it, it will be the same colour as both the Fn Key and the "1" on the J key. Press the Fn button and hold it down while pressing the Num Lk Key and the light will go out, then your letter will be back.

This is a feature built into your laptop allowing you to have a numeric pad on a small keyboard. Must have been turned on accidentally but is just as easy to turn off.
