  1. The right side of the keyboard only shows the keys in the <function mode. Letters m,j,k,l,;,u,i,o,p,/, and 0 all show up as if the function key is locked on. What should i do.

    Hey, Welcome to techspot

    I think i had this problem once before on my 1501 i forgot how i fixed it exactly but i would try hitting the function key and see if there' an f lock or something like that that will take function lock off.

    Ill look on my laptop later and see if i can replicate the problem
