Actually this depends on the model of the computer or the type of the Keyboard. Try pressing Fn+Numlk simultaneously, that will deactivate the Fn key. Pressing the Fn+Numlock keys activates and deactivates the Fn function.


Good Luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

I locked my keyboard on fn by hitting some buttons i dont know how i did it though ! like when i go to type j or something a 2 comes up . i have to hold the fn key just to type this now. Help!


Ok, your numLK (number lock) is activated. Hold the Fn key on the bottom left or right of the keyboard, then press the Insert/numLK key on the top right of the keyboard. You should see a graphic box indicating "number lock off." Hope this helps. RoyBK

I would like a manual for the latitude D610 keyboard to know how to use the symbol that are highlighted in bleu


In the lower left hand corner of your Dell Keyboard -- you will see a Blue Key labeled -- "Fn". This key allows you the use of ALL of the other blue labeled keys on your keyboard. You must press the FN key and the other "blue" key at the same time for them to work.

The keys on the right side of the keyboard with the blue numbers on them are controlled by the Numlock key and Fn key. The light at the top of the keyboard near the power button, with the number "9" inside a picture of a lock, will be lit if the Numlock is enabled.
You may need to press the Fn key to type numbers even if the Numlock is turned on. There is a setting in the BIOS called Enable Keypad and if you set it to By Numlock you will not have to hold down this key to type a number.

If you are still having trouble with these keys, please see the general keyboard troubleshooting guide

Locked keyboard buttons


You need to find the special function key that, when used with the Fn key, locks the Fn function on. On my keyboard it's the F11 key.
Press the Fn key and that key and your keyboard will return to normal.
