Problem with eMachines notebook after Remote Assistance

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Rusty Shackleford, Oct 20, 2003.

  1. Hi all. First of all, I have an eMachines notebook running XP. This is the
    kind of keyboard where there is an "Fn" key that one must press to use the
    build in number pad which coexists on the same keys as {M, J, K, L, U, I, O,
    P, 7, 8, 9, 0}, and where you press down the Fn key to type the number
    existing on those keys.

    I sent someone an invitation to start remote assistance to help me configure
    an ftp site they set up. They accepted and it Remote Assistance was
    completed with no problem. However, upon quitting Remote Assistance, the Fn
    key was inversed, so now I have to hold it down when I want to type LETTERS.

    I don't keep a restore point. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure about E-machines, but on my Toshiba I have to press Fn +
    F11 to access the "keypad". This key combination toggles between the
    letters/numbers. Would yours have anything like this? Look for a
    little picture of a keypad on one of the keys.
