Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop ?

Keyboard stuck on fn

\015 I don't know how or when this happened, but my keyboard is stuck with the function key locked "on" and I can't figure out how to turn it off. I can only type normally by holding down the function key. Otherwise all of my right hand keystrokes come out with the keypad numbers.\015

Answers :

I found this on another site, and it worked on my Vostro 1510:
\015\012
\015\012Try pressing shift + numlock (Scrolllock in blue) to toggle the Fn feature.
\015\012
\015\012Normal numlock comes on, so press it again by itself to turn that off.
My Compaq laptop does this all the time.Hold the "FN" key and tap "F11".
