SOURCE: Dell Laptop - Keyboard "Fn" is causing problems!

I think it is not the Fn key but the NumLock that is activated. Look for the key labeled NumLk , this is the number lock. Also check if the light on the notbook with a number (usually number 1) is on. If it is on, yo must deactivate the numlock by pressing it again. It works in toggle mode. Sometimes the numlock is activated together with the shift key, sometimes with the function key.

You can try a system restore back to a point you remember it working, but most likely you will have to do a bios flash or an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Press shift + numlock key. This will return the FN key to it's normal functionality, only working when you press it.

SOURCE: fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working

Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: dell inspirion keyboard 1420 replaced new but not working

Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down.

What is the shortcut key driver used to disable and enable battery charging?


Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the F3 key. Notice that the battery on the F3 key is probably the same color as the FN key, that means in order to get any key that is the color of the FN key to work, you must first Press and Hold the FN key.

Dell inspiron mini 10 touchpad frozen and I can not log on


Hi slimmerkitty...

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.
This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time(F1,F2,F3) and then attempt to use the touchpad after each one.
A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
Please take time to rate me

My keyboard won't light up on an ASIA G73J. I have tried the function keys and they won't work.


Did you hold down the [fn] key, in combination with the function keys? If not, you have to hold down the [fn] key in combination with pressing the function key's that are associated with the keyboard back-lighting (usually [F3] or [F4] on an ASUS G-series).

Hi
Usually on laptop keyboards there is a key marked Fn and it is usually in a colour that matches the colour of the special symbols which are on the F1,F2,F3 keys.
The monitor function key may be Fn+F3 for instance - look for a coloured hollow square on one of the Fx keys.
Usually when you hold down the Fn key and press the Fx key, it toggles between, LCD to LCD+external to external only.
