Keyboard Gone Crazy on Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook

How to Switch off the Number Block on a Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S7220 or 7210

Somebody at Siemens or Fujitsu had the fantastic (not) idea to put something like a fake number block onto their notebooks.

You won’t ever need it. But you’ll accidentally switch it on and then you’re helpless. Some of your keys around k,l,o then will just not print k,l or o but 2,3,*,/ and 5.

123 instead of jkl and 56* instead of iop and so on.

You’ll doubt your senses are working correctly. You’ll think you should have stopped taking those pills long ago.

But your brain and your senses are working fine. The problem is, you’ve switched on accidentally the F*ck Fake Number Block.

At first you won’t know that you’ve switched on the number block, as you never knew of its existence. You’ll just see that the keyboard on your Lifebook has gone bat shit crazy.

You can switch it off by pressing the Fn key, releasing it and then pressing the Num Lock key. Pressing Fn and Num Lock together won’t work.
