Your digital lock is activated.

To solve this:

"It all depends on the model you have".

Just start at solution "1" and work your way down to "3", If it is a Thinkpad use it only.

1. Simply press the FN (F Lock) and hold a few seconds.
or
2. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Num lock. (most common for HP)
or
3. Simply press together the FN (F Lock) + Shift + Num lock.

For IBM Thinkpad only, you must press Shift + Scroll Lock + Num lock.

Turn fn key


There is a "Fn" key next to the "Ctrl" key on the left of the keyboard.

Keep it pressed when pushing on one of the funktions on the top of the keyboard (next, play, stop, ...).

To disable or enable the Fn-functions, try locating them in BIOS using this guide.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=dk&lc=da&dlc=da&docname=c02035108

Otherwise, try hitting these key-combos, pressing the keys down exactly at once:
Dell = Fn + F4
Compaq = Fn + ScrLk
Lenovo = FN + Num Lock
IBM Thinkpad - Shift + Scroll Lock Num

Others:
Fn + F11

I have the same problem. Click the Windows start button. At the bottom is a Windows Serach box. Type 'keyboard'. A virtual keyboard appears. Click the NumLock key on the Virtual Keyboard. This should override the issue you are having and your keyboard and keys should now work. Otherwise reboot!

Locked keyboard buttons


You need to find the special function key that, when used with the Fn key, locks the Fn function on. On my keyboard it's the F11 key.
Press the Fn key and that key and your keyboard will return to normal.

Press Shift + Numlock key. This will turn off the Fn key and the Fn key will only work when it is pressed, like it is supposed to.
