Re: Can you tell me how to switch my laptop keyboard
The numLock key stays on when pressed. Note the NumLock light on the laptop. Press the numLock key once more. Did the numLock light go out? If not, try holding Fn + F11 - does that work? Try Fn + NumLock to unlock the number keys. One of these should fix it. (Probably F11)
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

The Number Lock function is accessed by pressing and holding the blue "Fn" located at the bottom left of the keyboard and the key with a "padlock graphic" with a number "1" on it. Release both keys and number lock is activated. Press the same key sequence again to shut it off.
Click Fn+Numlk as this switches your keyboard to the numbers printed in blue. Pressing that combination again, puts the keyboard back to normal. The Fn key will switch the function keys to the designated lower operation, so your F11 key has the NumLk operation controlled by the Fn key
You have accidently switch on the Number Lock and turned these keys into a number keypad.
On some model laptops the NumLk can be toggled on and off by holding the Fn key and pressing one of the function that has a keypad symbol or labeled NumLk.
On other laptops such as ThinkPad it is the Shift key + the NumLk/ScsLk key.
You have to unlock the FN key on your keyboard. It seems to be locked in place. I had the same problem and resolved it by looking for a "num lock" , "function lock" or actual blue image of a lock on the keys. Mine is located under the "Scroll" button. Press this along with the FN and your keyboard should go back to normal
