Just wanted to know what the keys were on this laptop,
i have tried using them but it doesn't do anything,

these are the ones;

F1 + F2 brightness
F5 = ?
F8 = ?
F12 = hibernation
Lock 1 = doesn't do anything
how could i lock my computer keypad with a password?

and then i was trying to find the color contrast functions on this laptop but cannot find it.

there is loads of blue numbers that need to be pressed with the 'Fn' function key but nothing happens,
if anyone has got any idea, please let me know.

click here Table 1-5 shows you all the hot key functions. If they aren`t working try pressing the Fn key and F8 which toggles the keypad on or off. If still no joy your keypad driver is corrupted. Go to Control Panel>System>Hardware tab and select device manager. Select input devices and right click on the keypad. Select properties and then update the driver.

The correct model of laptop is on the base. It will be one of the 2100 series. click here for the 2101 as an example with updated drivers for the touchpad and keyboard.
