Reboot the device and stop using the numlock. Instead use the numbers on top. The key seems to have got stuck. Or on second thought, try the sophisticated technique of putting the keyboard/laptop upside down and tap lightly on the back cover to release the stuck key. Works sometimes. But tap very lightly.

I have a Mac computer and the key board Num Lock won't turn off. I tried Fn=Shift+NumLock or Fn=NumLock but still won't unlock, Help


Hi Kip,

On the right side of the number keypad on a Mac Laptop, there is a 'Clear' button above the number 7. Press Shift + Clear to turn Num Lock on. Press that again to turn it off. If the keyboard doesn't have a number pad, press F6.

My function keys doesn't work in my laptop toshiba satellite c660-a047


The function key, labeled "Fn" and located in the lower-left corner of your keyboard, is a useful feature. By pressing "Fn" along with one of the numbered function keys at the top of the keyboard (F1 through F12), you can adjust your screen brightness, enable and disable your touchpad or wireless modem, lock your computer and complete a variety of other tasks. These keys will not work if the "Fn" key is not pressed along with them. While the "Fn" key itself does not turn on and off, there are settings that can make it behave differently, or seem to be disabled.

Click "Start," then "All programs" or "Programs," then "Toshiba." Select "Utilities," then "Accessibility." Place a checkmark in the box to make sure the "Fn" key will work whether you press it simultaneously with the F1 through F12 keys or immediately before pressing those keys. Customize the other options on the screen, then click "OK." Test your "Fn" key. One of the easiest ways to do this is by pressing "Fn" and "Esc" at the same time. This toggles the sound on your computer on and off, and will show a speaker icon on your screen if it works. Press "Fn" and "Num lock" at the same time if the "Fn" key still does not work. Use the "F11" key if your laptop has no "Num Lock" key. Test the "Fn" key again, using the same method as in Step 4. Locate a licensed repair technician if the key still is not working. A hardware issue may be at fault. Hope this helps.

Hi. My HP keyboard has function symbols which do various things, i.e. open and close the CD/DVD player, for some reason they nolonger work. Could it be that they have been turned OFF ? I don't know how to...


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
Ctrl + F11
Fn + Num Lock
Fn + Shift + Num Lock

On my hp 6735b laptop I would like to turn off the scroll zone on the touch pad if possible.


You don't specify what system are you using. In Windows you have to go to Control Panel, Mouse and Pointing Device properties, and find your touchpad options there, including the scroll areas.
If it's not there, chances are there is a separate application, either in Control Panel, or in the Start Menu, for setting up the touchpad. You can also look in the system tray beside the clock - often there's an icon there for the pointing device.
