Help! Laptop Keyboard Problem (NumLock)

The symptoms:

-'Numlock' turned off = Keyboard's tertiary function activated ('Page down' using 'l', for example.)
-'Numlock' turned on = Keyboard's primary function activated

Now, 'Numlock' is supposed to activate the secondary function, not something else. Conse[kyu]ently, I have a lot of problem typing. Darn! Have to switch on 'Numlock' to type normally. Any pointers?

P/S: 'Del' key unusable. Unable to type [kyu].

Yes, 'NumLock' IS off.

Had this problem once. Try turn num lock off and restart in that mode. Was as simple as that for me.

Or maybe the numlock setting in your BIOS could be messed up. Have a peep there as well.

Good luck Jim.

Found out the problem. FN key is stuck. Prying it apart does not solve the problem. I'm a sad guy :(
