    Default Accidently turned on NumLock

    Accidently turned on NumLock on my 6625, and now I cant turn it off. Im typing from another computer as my laptop keyboard is useless now, it prints numbers instead of letters.

    I've tried EVERY fn + combinations, but numlock is still on

    Help, please

    Did you try pressing the 4th key from the right end of the top row (between F12 and Pause), by itself (no shift, alt, ctrl, Fn)? That should toggle NumLk on and off.

    The NumLK on the 6625WD is turned off by just pressing NumLK alone (no Fn, Shift, CTRL or ALT key at the same time), just plain NumLK.

    n0elia, sounds weird. Every 6625WD i've tried it on work with only the NumLK-key.
