You have the number lock in the ON position.
The function key is usually of a different color (usually blue or green) look for the key with has the words Num Lock of the same color as the function key usually its the same key as the ScrLK (scroll lock)key. While holding the function key press the number lock key then release all keys and try to type.
Most computers have a light that indicates when the number lock is on just like the Caps lock on a desktop its on the keyboard, on a laptop the lights are either above the keys or on the bottom of the screen, look at the lights and you should see a number 1. if its on then follow the steps above until it turns off.
Good luck

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.

My grand daughter has some how turned on the FN key so when she is typing numbers come on the screen instead of the letters. How do we stop this ?


The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.

My function keys on my presario cq58 compaq laptop are covered with volume helpmenu and more stuff, so i can`t get press f1 and make it work.


The icons you see on the function keys only work if you press the Fn key (lower left of the keyboard). Otherwise, each key functions just as it should--as a Special function key with a number on it.

My 10-numberic keyboard on my acer aspire 5742Z-4200 has stop working, when I press the number they do not work. How can I fix this problem?


NumLk must be on for the numeric keyboard to input the numbers on the keys otherwise the keys default to the functions marked at the lower part of the keys. To turn on NumLk, just press the NumLk key on the top row of keys above the numeric keyboard.

Key board troobleshoot


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.

Keyboard stuck on fn


I found this on another site, and it worked on my Vostro 1510:

Try pressing shift + numlock (Scrolllock in blue) to toggle the Fn feature.

Normal numlock comes on, so press it again by itself to turn that off.
