Let me inform you that just pressing L and U doesnot make any sense in Desktop. It will only lock your PC if u press windows button(the button between Cntrl and Alt on the left side of Spacebar) + L.Also windows + U opens the Magnifier.

Thus we can conclude that the windows button is somehow pressed all the time in your system, this is why magnifier is opening when you are pressing U.

Get it to its normal position and just click on your Login and use your credentials(username and password) to login to windows.

If you feel that my answers has helped you in any way then please give a vote.

Thanks.

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!


  • 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.

    I accidentally turned on the wireless 5000 mouse magnifier and can't get rid of the magnifier. How do I turn it off?


    Normal 0 The button on the left side of the mouse when pressed turns the Magnifier on/off. Just press it again and it should turn off.
    I kept turning it on accidentally so I went in the control panel and switched the Magnifier to the right side. I added that below so you can set your mouse buttons.

    Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
    Hope this helps. Bud
