Hold the blue fn key (function key) then press the numlk (numbers lock) this will enable or disable the calculator feature on the keyboard.

Hi,

Please try to press and hold Fn at the bottom left corner of the keyboard and then Nmlk which is located above the F11, thats how you disabled and enabled the Numlock capability.


Hope this will help... Your response is very much appreciated....

Work with an external numeric keyboard


I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

Ibm thinkpad keyboard right side is #'s not letters


Hi,
You have accidentally turned on the "Num Lock", all you have to do is hit the Num Lock key to return the keyboard to normal, it is located at the top right hand side of the keyboard.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Type letter and get number on keyboard


Hold down the Function Key and the F11 key at the same time. That should reset your keyboard to the letter.

Problem with keyboard replacement in IBM Thinkpad R52


The keyboard you purchased (39T0704) is a US English keyboard. Change your input local in your "Keyboard" "Control Panel" to "EN English (United States)" and all your keys should work. As far as getting the English keyboard to work in German or Polish is very unlikely.
