Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".

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.

One day I noticed after my kid played with my laptop dell insperion mini 1012 that my keys stopped wprking. The mouse woorks and when I searched in the control panel it says the divice is working. It has...


Look at the top right hand side of the keyboard. See if the NUMB LOCK and FUNCTION LOCK keys are lit. If one or both are lit hit the key to unlock it.

Pressing the WINDOWS KEY and the letter U will bring up ease of access window. Down the list you'll see use without keyboard and mouse. Click there and make sure it is not check marked. You may also need to turn off STICKY KEYS and FILTER KEYS and hit save to unlock it.

Try pressing the WINDOWS KEY and the letter L at the same time and see if that doesn't unlock it. If that locks it instead of unlocking it press it again to unlock it.

If none of these fixes the problem then UNPLUG the laptop from the adaptor. Turn it upside down and remove the battery. Wait one minute then put the battery back in. Reconnect the power supply and reboot the machine.
