Unlock the security chip for a ibm t 60 thinkpad


IBM-branded Thinkpad T60 laptops from Lenovo are mobile computing devices that feature a keyboard lock for data security. When the lock is enabled, pressing the keys on the keyboard does not result in input to the computer. The lock hampers attempts by an unauthorized user from gaining access to your computer and your files. Lock your Thinkpad using the Function key. The Function key used in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard expand the laptop's number of available features.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower left corner of your Thinkpad keyboard. Locate the "F2" key in the upper left area of the keyboard. Press and hold the "Fn" key, then press the "F2" key to toggle the "Lock" feature. Release both keys. Hope this helps.

Hi,

That UP arrow refers to an UPPER CASE letter. If ever you press the CAPS LOCK key, it should turn off, if it does not it means the CAPS LOCK key for some reason is stuck. Try restarting the computer and by then the CAPS LOCK should be disabled.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    I HAVE A LOCK WITH A NUMBER 1 ON AND CANNOT USE MY LOWER CASE KEYS> HOW DO I UNLOCK WHATEVER I HAVE LOCKED?


    try pressing the caps lock key once, if still your caps lock key does not respond then possibly the key is stuck, try backing up your data first do a system restore when you think you can still use lower case on your keyboard then check if there will be changes, if still no changes occur, a long shot would be re imaging windows back to defaults again make sure you back up data first the then try again once windows is reinstalled if no changes then your keyboard works but the caps lock key is busted ^_^ I do not see any other option for the caps lock key to be troublshooted. ^_^

    How to lock a keyboard


    Using windows you can lock the keyboard when you press simultanously the windows key (that one with the win logo) and the L. Before doing that, make sure you know your accounts' password because you are going to need it to unlock the keyboard. In case you don't know or forgot, go to start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>user acounts and change the password as you desired.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

    Thanks and regards
