You have enabled the Numlock Keypad.
The Inspiron 7500 comes standard with an embedded numeric keypad.
|NOTE: The embedded numeric keypad is automatically disabled if an external keyboard or keypad is connected to the computer.|
As you work, you may want to use
the embedded numeric keypad (see Figure 5) to enter numbers into a spreadsheet
or financial program. The embedded numeric keypad shares some of the keys on
the computer's keyboard. The embedded keypad numbers and symbols are marked
on the right of the keypad keys in blue.
Figure 5. Embedded Numeric Keypad
To activate the embedded numeric keypad, press <Num Lock>. The Number Lock indicator lights up.
To deactivate the embedded keypad, press <Num Lock>. The Num Lock indicator is no longer illuminated.
When the embedded keypad is activated, the key combinations in Table 1 temporarily disable specific keypad keys.
When Keypad Is Activated
|<Fn><key>||Enables the lowercase letter or primary function of that specific key|
|<Fn><Shift><key>||Enables the uppercase letter or shift function of that specific key|
To use the embedded arrow keys, ensure that <Num Lock> is off. Press and hold <Fn> and the corresponding key displayed in Table 2.
Table 2. Deactivated Keypad Functions
|When Keypad Is Deactivated||Function|
|<Fn><j>||Performs the same function as pressing <End>|
|<Fn><7>||Performs the same function as pressing <Home>|
|<Fn><k>||Performs the same function as pressing the down-arrow key|
|<Fn><8>||Performs the same function as pressing the up-arrow key|
|<Fn><u>||Performs the same function as pressing the left-arrow key|
|<Fn><o>||Performs the same function as pressing the right-arrow key|
|<Fn><.>||Performs the same function as pressing <Delete>|
