What to do to unlock my numeric key pad on my lap top?


My keyboard on my laptop is stuck in function mode I believe. When I type J it gives me a 1 and when I type M I get a 0. How do I turn this off so I can use my laptop keyboard.

Thanks for you help.

It appears that you have lock your Numeric Key pad I use a Dell Lap top and in order to get out of my Numeric key pad i use the Fn key that is located between the Ctrl and Alt key, by pressing this and the F11 key this will activate and deactivate the numeric key pad on my lap top I know if you go to your Lap top manual you should get the information to activate and deactivate your numeric key pad.
