    Hi all,

    I'm using a laptop (pentium III, 128mb, 20gb) with a qwerty keyboard. The problem is that some keys are locked in Fn mode. Such as p (is -) o (is 6) etc..
    I tries rebooting, hitting f11, f10, system restore but it didnt work. The strnage thing is that other keys such as all the F (1to 12) keys which also have a second function with Fn seem to work like normal.
    When I use the Fn key with for instance p I get p but when I hit p without Fn I get -.
    Any ideas?
    Tnx

    Is this an external keyboard? See if there is a numlock button (possibly turned on in the bios on boot up) and try pushing that. Laptop make and model and keyboard make and model would help us give you better advice.
