Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys

\015 I have bought a dell inspiron laptop and it does not allow me to use the F keys because it is using their second functions. My laptop does no have the NumbLock button or the scroll lock one. Any solution please!\302\254\015

Answers :

Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.\015\012
\015\012For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.\015\012
\015\012SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)\015\012
\015\012If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.
