On the keyboard, you should have a num lock key; it will be on a regular key but it will say it in a different color, usually blue. Press the Fn key and that key and that will solve your problem.

I would like to listen to music/programs/instructions with head phones. I plug in but get no sound through head phones. Can you tell me how to do this? I have a TravelMate 5520-5568 Thank you

From everything I've read and tried over the years it all points to the same thing. Because there is such a big imedence mismatch between standard headphones and laptop output jacks, that they never seem to quite work. I have seen a couple machines that the sound works fine but for the most part the sound is either dull or tiney.
