There is a utility called F-lock are you using it?

Enable keyboard


First, make sure it is plugged in. If it is a USB type, try the other USB ports on the computer to see if one or more ports have failed.

Still no luck? Try differen USB ports each time you boot up. During the boot, enter the computer's BIOS or Set Up area (usually pressing DEL, F1 or some other key). Check for setting regarding keyboard and keyboard type. Make sure they are enabled. If nothing works, the keyboard may be broken - not disabled. Try with another keyboard instead.

Function keys directly not working (working only after pressing Fn key button).How to open function keys F1 to F10 directly and calculator is not open. Please help me. Our Keyboard MODEL: LENOVO KU-0989


Welcome to Fixya

You need to enable it at the Bios. Reboot the computer and press the button that will lead you to the BIOS menu of the motherboard. Go to System configuration and go to actions keys mode. Press enter then select "ENABLED". Save settings before you exit then test the issue.

Thank you for using Fixya!

The number lock feature is enabled. You should see an indicator for the Num Lock (lit when on) that is next to the Caps Lock indicator.

You should be able to disable the lock by pressing Fn and Num Lock together on the keyboard. (On some Sony Vaio keyboards, type CTRL+ALT+NumLock or Shift+NumLock.) The number lock should be at the top of the keyboard near the F1-F12 keys. Sometimes the key is shared with the Scroll Lock function (otherwise it will be nearby). It's really easy for the Number lock to be enabled on some Sony keyboards; just some dirt between the keys can enable it when you didn't turn it on intentionally.

I hope this helps.

What is the part of the keyboard


Find a "dead" keyboard -- take it apart, to view all the parts, e.g., 101 or 102 "caps" for the keys, springs, membranes, screws, et cetera.

Windows has support for "foreign" keyboards, e.g., Spanish, French, German, Norwegian, et cetera, that have different graphics for some of the keys.

Access "Control Panel", then "Regional and Language Options", and select the 'USA' keyboard.

My Inspiron 1525 comes on with the "9" lock(?) illuminated; it goes off while booting, and comes on. What is this "lock", is this "lock" important; what does it mean; and if I need to get it "unlocked",...


Ordinary "desktop" keyboards have a separate "keypad" (slash, star, minus, plus, enter, dot, and 0 through 9) in the same layout as a "traditional" adding-machine.

However, to keep the laptop's keyboard much smaller, those keys are superimposed on the right-hand side of the "standard" keyboard.

So, press "NUMeric LOCK" to use the "keypad" layout, and press it again to use the "standard" letters (I, O, P, K, L, M, et cetera) on the keyboard.
