Hello,

A few of the buttons on my top keyboard are locked and refuse to work

Esc, F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F8 F9 F10 F11 Are not working. I press them and nothing happens.

I'm fearful I may have hit some function locked key on my keyboard and is preventing me from using these keys. Is here anyway I can click on a button my keyboard and reset everything. Or go to control panel and enable my top keys to work again. How can I stop this from happening? Any help is appreciated.

I attached a picture of what my keyboard looks like.


My computer is an Acer Aspire 7745G - Windows 10

It may be a "Numlock" problem. Here are three ways to try and unlock it.


A. You can try this shortcut, press (together) the Fn + Nmlk keys.


B. You can also try disabling it in the registry...

1. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run box.
2. Type "regedit" and press "Enter" to open the Windows "Registry Editor".
3. In the "Registry Editor", open the following registry key.

HKEY_USER\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard\

4. In the keyboard folder, you should see a string value named “InitialKeyboardIndicators” with a value of 0, 1, or 2. You need to change the value to 1, and you’re done.

NOTE: The Values are as follows...

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

C. Disable NumLock in the BIOS

You can also change how your computer handles the NumLock, when the computer first boots up, through the BIOS.

1. Turn on your computer, and as soon as you see the initial POST boot screen, press the designated key for entering the BIOS Setup.
2. Locate the the “NumLock State,” “NumLock Key“, “Boot Up NumLock Status” or a similar option
3. Change the value to Disabled or Off.
4. Save your changes and exit the BIOS.
