Try holding down the Fn key and at the same time press the NumLock key.

If the above doesn't work try this (it works for some) -

Shut down the computer
Unplug the power cord
Take the battery out for a few minutes
Replace the battery and start the computer
Problem fixed
Plug in power cord

1. Turn off the computer,
2. Take the battery out
3. Take out the power supply
4. Push the power button down for 30 seconds.
5. Reconnect power supply
6. Then the battery.


If still same remove all power sources and remove the CMOS battery for 10 mins to reset the BIOS to default settings reconnect and retry.
