9 in a lock light:
Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled. Turn NumLk off by toggling the key.

You can change it in System Setup. Under Post Behavior heading.
Press to enter System Setup and make changes to user-definable settings. If you have trouble entering System Setup using this key, press when the keyboard lights first flash.

Use the checkbox to enable / disable the Num Lock LED when the system boots.

The factory default setting is Enabled.

Dell latitude e5510 laptop got blue screen saying that a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer but it wont do anything ele's help any one

have you made any changes before the blue screen appear? installing a driver maybe? if you have,try to undone those changes by booting with Startup with last known good configuration (undo recent registry and driver change),use System Restore,or Roll Back device driver,Scan your computer for viruses
and Return BIOS settings to their default levels,go to BIOS by pressing F2 or del exactly after you press the power button and the screen show up
if it still in blue screen,that's probably that some of your system file is missing,and you need to reinstall your operating system
Please let me know if it's working or not,i don't like to abandon anyone,and thanks for using fixya

Hi my dell vostro key board has locked ,right hand side of keyboard blue light with a lock and 9 inside it .tried everything can you help

The 9 lock key means that your Number lock key is on. The blue light usually means that your blue tooth is on. Try connecting an external USB keyboard to see if it functions normally. If so then you need to have your keyboard replaced.

There is a lock 9 symbol above my f4 button on my latitude e4300 laptop and i would like to know what this means?

The lock 9 is for num lock.

Usually there is a 'Fn' button on the keyboard of a laptop. It has to be somewhere near the 'ctrl' 'windows' or 'alt' button on the left.

If you press and hold the 'Fn' key and then the numlock 9, you will toggle numlock on and off.

The 'Fn' of the key is normally written in another color. There are several buttons on the keyboard thet has a same color number or sign. To enable this signs and numbers, you have to press and hold the 'Fn' key and then the key with the desired number or sign.
