Keyboard stuck in Fn mode

The subject line speaks for itself. I have to press the Fn key for the "k" key, for instance, not to come up as a "3". Anyone know how to sh4t th5s 6ff?

Try this, hit the SHIFT key 3x fast, pause 1sec, hit SHIFT 3x again, sticky keys should come up, and should reset the keyboard....

Re: Keyboard stuck in Fn mode/ details of Fn key function?

I have not yet found what the Fn key does. Can you point me to a manual or help topic? Thanks.

The Fn ( Function ) Key allows you to use all of the functions marked in BLUE on the keyboard. However usually you MUST hold the Fn key when using the functions in blue.

38In,

Did you figure this out? I think you will find that numlock is turned on. See if turning it off fixes your problem.

Re: Keyboard stuck in Fn mode

in bios, my keybd isn' affected---noeffect in the date or time..this only happens after boot and login. by pressing the fn key where the secondary functions lie, i can work around it. he numlock in bios is only for an xternal keybd. Where n the regstry or driver d6es th5s ta2e affect. hard to read--isn't it.   Win 2000   ispiron 3800
