Usually if the computer do not have a num lock neat the numbers in the left corner ..I mean if you only have numbers on top of the letters this means that the numbers are always on ...and if you need to change to the upper symbols use the shift key above the ctrl and Fn key ...If you do not have the numbers always on under the letters it means that you used the fn key and changed the functions of the keys or some kinda odd virus did that and in this case a reinstall will fix it ..but I dont this this is the case...
If you have Numbers in the right side like a full size keyboard..than the num LK will be on top of them if you only have numbers on top of the letters than the numbers are always on and the shift will change to the symbols

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.

Laptop keyboard


You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.
Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key. When the NumLk has been enabled a LED light is turn on to indicate this function has been selected. Press the NumLk key again to turn off the Number Lock.

Wireless card on packard bell laptop not working


I believe your problem is the network key, you changed it most likely. And you are now locked out of the network. The "key" in your computer must match the "key" in the access point (wireless router). WEP is a security protocol that runs on the wireless link. The 169 number tells me your wireless adapter can not create a link between it and the wireless router. So you are not connected. You'll need to get the "key" from the wireless router. Try entering 192.168.0.1 (that a guess on my part as to the number, generally this is the gateway address) as a web address on your desktop and look at the security settings in the wireless router.


Or else, restart the router and try to connect it again.. Anyone of this should work

Keyboard Produces Numbers Instead of Letters when Num Lock key is on. For example here is what I get when pressing the keys from Q all the way over to the \ key on that row of keys when I have the caps off...


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!

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.

How do I copy the security key?


the solution to this one is you need to reconfigure the router. you need to disable the security settings for your router. (WEP or WPA) then try to put in a new SSID and new security key. that's the only way that you can get a new security/passphrase key for your network. for further assistance you need to contact the router manufacturer for router configuration.

i hope this helps.

KEYBOARD PROBLEM


The number lock is engaged on your laptop keyboard. usually that is FN+F11 keys or number lock is on by default in the BIOS setup.
Check and see which F1-F12 key looks like a number pad

Internet wireless connectivity


This is a common and annoying problem. Your router is running and connected, but they are either not using the same encryption keys or else you have some other setting incorrect (encryption type is a common one).

Turn off the laptop's wireless connection and enable its cable (wired) connection. Connect the laptop to the back of the router physically with a network cable. In a browser type 192.168.1.1 (or other similar number - check your router's quick start guide). Log into the router and go to the WIRELESS SETTINGS. Write down everything you see (channel, station ID, encryption type and key, and whether MAC ADDRESS LOCKING is on (if it is turn it off for now)). Take these settings, reverse the process on your laptop and try to connect wirelessly with the new settings. They have to be exactly the same

If it all works, you need to go back into the router and enable MAC ADDRESS LOCKING after giving it your laptop's MAC ADDRESS, enable the highest standard encryption both the router and the laptop support, and turn off station ID broadcasting if possible.

If you still cannot connect wirelessly, connect again through the wire connection, and turn off encryption, turn off MAC ADDRESS LOCKING, and try again.

Good luck...
