Most likely NumLk is on enabling the numeric keypad which is on the right part of the keyboard. At the top edge of the keyboard, beside the Caps Lock indicator, is a NumLk indicator which looks like a little padlock icon with a number in its middle. Pressing the NumLk key at the top edge of the keyboard toggles the NumLk indicator on and off. When it is on, typing J K L U I O results in 1 2 3 4 5 6 instead. Just press NumLk to toggle NumLk off to return these keys back to their respective alphabetic characters.

    Based on ASCII decoding, if the top 4 bits are stuck to binary 0011 then pressing alpha keys will result in numbers. Besides the numbers, only the keys for colon (:), semi-colon (;) and question mark (?) will also be correct as the top 4 bits for these are binary 0011. If this description fits what is happening in your case, the problem is likely in the keyboard decoding hardware and you should take your Sony Vaio into a Sony authorized service center. Finally, if your Sony Vaio is running Windows XP and you can manage to run osk (the On Screen Keyboard is a little known utility that is included with XP), you will bring up an On-Screen Keyboard window where you can just use your mouse to click on the keys to type characters thus bypassing the keyboard hardware altogether. First, at the lower left corner of the desktop, click on the start button, then on the start pop-up window, click on Run... Next turn on Num Lock by pressing the NumLk key to enable the embedded numeric keypad. Then while holding down the Alt key, press the number keys for 7 and 9 then release the Alt key to get the letter O. Next while holding down the Alt key again, press the numeric pad's number keys for 8 and 3 (L) then release the Alt key to get the letter S. Next while holding down the Alt key again, press the numeric pad's number keys for 7 and 5 (I) then release the Alt key to get the letter K. Finally, once the characters OSK are in the Open: field, click the Run window's OK button. This will get you the On-Screen Keyboard which you can then use to type any character by clicking on it and which will be placed at the current cursor position on the screen (try it with notepad).

What is the restriction code for nokia x2-02

The main code used in Nokia phones is:
#pw+(master code)+Y#
This code is able to check, activate or remove Sim card restriction (SP-lock).
Use the * key to get the p, + and w chars.
'Y' has to be 1,2,3 or 4 - depending of what lock you what to deal with.
#pw+1234567890+1# for Provider-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+2# for Network-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+3# for Country-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+4# for SimCard-Lock status
MASTERCODE = 1234567890
(master code) is a 10 digit code, based on the phones IMEI number.
(I can NOT give you the master code - SO DON'T ASK ME FOR IT !!!!!!!)
Eg. To remove restriction on lock 1 type following code:
#pw+(master code)+1#
If you just want to check your phone use 10 random numbers Eg. 1234567890 as the (master code)
eg. To check if phone if restricted on lock 1 type the following code:
Please NOTE that these codes could be used with care! A user told me that it's only possible to type in about 5 different codes on each lock! Then something bad will happen ..therefore be careful

Looking for screen and keyboard

eBay is the best place for this type of thing. It's way cheaper than any laptop depot I've come across. Here's one for your keyboard: As far as the screen is concerned; the way to get the best deal is to search by model number of the screen and not just laptop. The same screen can be used in several different laptops. Take your screen out and look on the back of it. There will be a model number there. Enter that model number into ebay's search, making sure you check product description to be included in the search query. Any screen matching that model number will fit your laptop just perfectly and it will save you a bundle.
