Wireless keyboard and mouse

\015 I have been using wireless keyboard and mouse but I need to use laptop without these and now when I type on the laptop (ever since installed) I get numbers in place of the letters on those keys with the blue number above them. Can you tell me how to switch or fix the problem. Even after removing the wireless...it still does not type properly.\015\012\015\012Thank you. Feather\015

Answers :

On your keypad there is a button ' fn' (normaly on near the windows key, blue in colour) which when pressed along with another one on the keypad (somewhere in the top row of the keypad) activates this function, what you have to do is a press these two key again simultaneously to de-activate this function. the second button or key will most likely be paired with one of the f_ keys
