Try pushing the FN key at the same time as you push on the lock key this may unlock the keyboard I think you are in the locked position there is a FN key this is the blue highlighted key to make all the blue keys work you have to press it simultaneously. I hope that this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa John

How do you turn on *** q550 backlit keyboard


If the letters & numbers on your keyboard looks like transparent plastic, then you have a back lit keyboard, but if the letters & numbers looks like they are painted on the key caps, then you don't have back lit keyboard.

let's assume that you have a back lit keyboard: Hold the Function [Fn] key and tap the Spacebar once. That will enable/disable the back light.

You can easily tell if it's a backlit keyboard because the spacebar will have a keyboard icon on the left hand side. If it has the icon, then your keyboard has back lights on it & it should work.
If it doesn't, then it's a hardware issue that a technician needs to fix.

What do the lighted icons stand for at the top of the keyboard? One looks like a locked padlock with a 9 in it. What does it mean?


That is your number lock key is turned on, which means that your 9 key keypad is ready to use. If you press the number lock key on your keyboard the light will go away but your 9 key numeric keyboard won't work until you press the number lock key again.

I have a dell inspiron n4030 and im trying to use the alt + 164 to type the n with the ~letter and i can't.,, What do i need to do so this can function?


If you have a separate numeric keypad, then use that with the Alt key to type ñ. Otherwise, you can try using NumLk which activates a part of your existing keyboard to input numbers (NumLk is active when the little padlock icon with the number 1 in its middle is lit up). You may need to press the Fn key along with the key marked NumLk to toggle NumLk. Once NumLk is on, then you should be able to use the numeric keypad portion of the keyboard to input alt + 164 to type ñ. Hope this has helped you.

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop keyboard is typing odd numbers and symbols instead of some of the lettters. Examples, the letter "l" comes out "3" . Other letters come out as a back slash, etc. A plug in USB...


Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

Pc keyboard will not type letters when keys are struck, i typed this with the on screen key pad.


Hello,

Thank you for using fixya.

Check the connection of your keyboard is not properly connected to your computer. Be sure that it's connected and there are lights lit on your keyboard. IF none... Unplug and plug your keyboard back in and check if it works. If not, try a different port.

If still not working, your keyboard needs to be replaced.

If you have any questions, please leave me a message by replying to this post.

I hope this helps.

The keyboard is locked


Dear Sir,

plz folow this step to unlock keyboard

  1. Step 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. Step 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. Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  4. Step 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.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.
Thanks For Your Time,

In the back of the computer under where the keyboard and mouse plugs in their are 4 little lights .these light should be light up either green or yellow. here is the link to the site where you can download the Owners manual pdf 997 kband you look on page 35-38 it will show you the diagram of the lights to see if any match up to yours.

When i type a-key on the keyboard then a1 appears on the screen in Dell inspiron 1525 laptop,please assist me to get resolve this problem


Most likely you have your numlock key turned on by mistake. Look on your computer and see if there is a light with a padlock and a number in the padlock. It is probably lit up. Now look for a key on your keyboard called "numlock" and press the key once. See if the light goes off. When you have the numlock key on some of the letter keys will work as numbers like a calculator. When you turn it off the keys are back to letters.

Mystery icon on Dell Keyboard Model SK 8115


The icon should mean the NUM LOCK is on. All that does is activate the numberpad on the right side of the keyboard. Chances are the monitor's backlight is bad. Try another monitor. You can also get a flashlight, turn it on and hold it very close to the face of the screen. Look closely at the screen, can you see your desktop or login screen? If so the backlight is not working with in the monitor.
