Please see if this article is of any help to you. It is for HP business notebooks.

Thanks. After much searching on the internet it appears that my laptop does not have a scroll lock or number lock key as my old laptop did. Do you know if there is a key that can used in place of this? Apparently the only way I can fix the problem I have with the program I am using is to press the scroll lock key (which I don't have!)

Yes, there is a real easy way. Plug a USB desktop keyboard into a USB port on your laptop and use the scroll lock key on the desktop keyboard.
They normally all have them on the upper right--the separate set of 3 keys.

Hi I was out in the world when I ran into the "No Scroll Lock" key / function on mt HP DVP Laptop. Really, HP could not add a ctrl + function key for this?
There is an easier solution than hooking an external keyboard, especially if you are not in the home/office.
USE THE WINDOWS ON SCREEN KEYBOARD! I found this on another post on the HP board. In Windows 7 you can easily find the On Screen Keyboard by pressing the windows globe on the bottom right corner that brings up your 'Start Menu" and type in "On Screen" in the search box at the bottom. You should see "On Screen Keyboard" app come up at the top. Alternately, go to Control Panel, Ease of Access, and you will see "Start On Screen Keyboard". Once enabled when you select the on screen application it comes right up. You can leave the on screen minimized at the bottom if you need to toggle Scroll Lock on and Off.
So there is a solution that does not include finding an external keyboard. But HP, this can't be a difficult thing to add to the bios, no? Like Alt + Fn Num Lock?

This does not work in all programs on my ENVY. There really should be a key stroke for this function.
Question: Why are we removing keys that are needed to operate some programs?
This only creates more frustration...
