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)

There's a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key.
Press it down, and hold it down.
Press the 'NUM LOCK' key, and release it.
Release the 'FN' key.

I am looking for the number lock key on my gateway computer

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.

The Number Lock function and graphic is shown at the top of page 19 of the "Gateway Hardware Reference Manual" and is presented in the link for easy access.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks.

The keyboard is locked. Instead of letters, it gives me numbers

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

Where is the wireless switch located?

Try to examine your laptop keyboard.

  1. Look for a Function Key (F1 ... F12) with the wifi icon below it usually printed in orange or blue.
  2. Now press and hold the Fn key and press that function key with the wifi icon.
  3. That softly turns your wifi ON.

Keyboard problems

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.

External keyboard messing up Gateway settings

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
