Dell Inspiron 1501 keyboard problems

  1. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and the right-hand side of the keyboard types as if it's in <function> mode. That is, the j, k, l, ;, m, u, i, o, p keys, when typed, come up with the blue function numbers. Only on the right-hand side of the keyboard, though.

    I bought a new keyboard, swapped out the old one thinking this would solve the problem but it did not. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Re-check the connection from the keyboard to the mobo

    It's been a while since you posted this article so im guessing by now you've figured It's caused by the NUMLOCK key being on

    I just wanted to say thanks, cos I was starting to think both my PC nd I were going crazy until I saw at least one other person was having the same problem.

    Happy travels.
