Restart the computer in safe mode (procedure is given below)

Start the computer and keep tapping the F8 Key on top of the keyboard
You will be in advanced options menu,
use your up and down arrow keys on the keyboard and choose safe mode and hit enter.

In safe mode close if any window opens, open note pad or any application and test the keys, it it is not working even in safe mode, then the issue is with the keypad, you have to get it replaced.

Sir bluestaks is not installing in hp 2133 mini laptop ,Sfn : CNU8241BMT,pfn : FH48gPA#ACJ,because there is no graphic card. Then how to install bluestaks.

The netbook hardware is not sufficient to support Bluestaks and with no decent graphics card it will never work, I am afraid you will have to forget the idea or try installing on laptop or desktop PC.

No monitor display but power on lights-on

There are several reasons why this might be happening. If you have hooked your netbook up to an external monitor recently it may still be stuck in external display mode. Fn+F2 toggles between external display, normal display, and both. Pressing these keys simultaneously might bring it out of it.
If that doesn't seem to work, it may be a memory issue. This is a fairly new model computer so I would hope there isn't already a memory issue with your system, but I suppose anything is possible. Let me know if the first solution works (I hope!), if not than we can explore other options.

Good Luck,

I cant undo the fn key on the mini note

You should be able to turn off the built in numeric keypad by pressing the fn key and the num lk simultaneously. The num lk is directly above the +/= key. If after doing this you still find you only momentarily turn off the numeric keyboard then there is another underlying issue. At that point you should take your unit to your area HP repair center.
