    Unlock number lock


    On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

    Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

    My led indicators for caps lock num lock etc not workinh in my lenovo G570 laptop


    Hi, If you are using a keyboard that is wireless im sure you just have to change the battery on the keyboard.
    However if the keyboard is connected to your CPU, then depending on your keyboard model, you may have to turn F LOCK (F Lock Light on) to access system key commands if they are labeled on the front of the keys, such as num lock , scroll lock and print screen.When you click on the Flock, the lights are either supoosed to click on or off.
    view the keyboard status lights by using the On Screen Display (OSD) option, Ensure you download the software ,
    from your start menu do a search for your keyboard, on th key tabs setting,
    its important to make sure that the correct model number is entered,
    double click on the light you wish to change, in the Reassign a Key wizard,
    clear the Displays (key name) status on the screen check box to disable the on-screen display, or select it so that a check mark is in the box to enable it, and then click Finish.
    HOPE THIS HELPS.

    Cannot unlock Keyboard Scroll lock - EX110


    Found this little bomb shell after about 30mins of looking for an answer.

    http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=9220

    To toggle your scroll lock key:
    1. Click on the Windows Start button.
    2. Select Run.
    3. Type 'OSK' in the dialog box.


      11808.1.0.jpg
    4. Click on OK.
    5. The Microsoft on-screen keyboard will open. Notice that the slk, or scroll lock, key (located in the top row of the on-screen keyboard as shown below) is turned on.

      11809.1.0.jpg
    6. Click on slk (in the top row of the on-screen keyboard). This will toggle the state of the scroll lock key. Notice that the scroll lock key is no longer outlined in red. Scroll lock is now off.

      11810.1.0.jpg
    NOTE: If you have installed SetPoint (Logitech’s Mouse and Keyboard software) the confirmation message Scroll Lock Off will also be displayed for about 2 seconds on your monitor.

    Laptop keyboard on lifebook c, replace or fix


    It looks like you answered your own question - you really can't fix a laptop keyboard, but you can replace them. (or you can use an external keyboard)

    Now is your problem:?
    Letters qwert, asdfg, zxcvbn work OK but uiop displays as 456/ jkl displays as 123 and m displays as 0. Other keys also do not display correctly. Or holding the function key down at the same time as the problem keys ?

    Then the solution is:
    The problem was caused by accidentally pressing the num lock key. Once pressed, it remains locked even after a reboot. Pressing again returns the keyboard to normal.
