OK - sounhds like you've got the Num Lock on - presumably you'll have to go into the BIOs to switch it off.
OK - sounhds like you've got the Num Lock on - presumably you'll have to go into the BIOs to switch it off. cured by holding down Fn and hitting Ins (which is Num Lock). I must have done this in error yesterday. Thanks again, Hallucigenia, I was able to type this rather faster than my last post.Chris

PLZ HELP ME....how do i permenly use the laptop keyboard withour use the fn key cause its really anouyingcould u give me u give me step to step on how to fix this or tell me wat u did...plzthnks anyway for the fn tip
The original poster held down the Fn key and then pressed the Ins key. Once he had pressed the Ins key, he released the Fn key. He was then able to type normally. That solved his problem, but it doesn't solve yours, you have a different problem. If you meant that each time you start your laptop, you find that the num-lock is enabled, then there may be a setting in you laptop's BIOS that needs altering or there may be a setting in a manufacturer's utility that shipped with your laptop that needs attention.If you need further assistance, providing further information on the problem as well the make and model of the PC and the operating system installed will help.ATB,Ian..
Sorry that should have said:but if it doesn't solve yours, you have a different problem.ATB,Ian..
