Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop ?

The "Fn" function on keyboard is on. I want it off. Help!

\015 The following letters on my keyboard (uiopjklm) are coming out with their "fn" counterparts (456*1230). My 4 year old was playing on it earlier today- I'm certain he did something to turn the "fn" function on. I just want to turn it off.\015

Answers :

Look for something that says FN Lock or look for a Look symbol on the keyboard . It's usually on the SCROLL key.

Best of luck!
