  1. Is this a laptop we are talking about? If so it sounds like your Fn key is active.
  2. could u explain the cause of FN key and how to rectify
  3. The Fn key will turn the I and O keys to a Ten-Key pat which is located on the right of the regular keyboard.

    what kind of computer is it?
  4. As an example:

    if you notice on the bottom of the u/i/o/p keys, and some underneath those, they have the number 4/5/6/*, these "function keys" are often used in laptops that don't have a number pad like a full sized desktop keyboard will.

    Often on the keyboard itself is a "function Key" often signified by a "Fn" on the key, pressing it will enable/disable the keypad ability. So if you're receiving that 4/5/6 when pressing a u/i/o, see if you have a key with "Fn" on it, if so try giving it a press and repeating the u/i/o.
  5. just press the function key(FN) with the numlck or just press FN+Shift+Numluck thats it....your keyoard laptop will now function normally

    :bounce: Just wanted to say THANKS A BUNCH for posting this simple 'FIX'. I used to think I knew a thing or 2 about computers, but some of these functions I've just never discovered and thought the new wireless keyboard was to blame. I needed to simultaneously press Fn/Shift/NumLock on the laptop or just unlock the NumLock on the wireless keyboard. Now I know it was my own ignorance. Thanks again. :hello:
