FN + numlock indicator FN + F1 .... F12, FN + pause key is Win + the F7 key, combination FN + Shift (right) and nothing helps

unlock keyboard

If you are referring to the numeric keypad- look for a key with "num lock" on it-usually right above the 7 . Press it to turn on/off number pad.

unlock keyboard

My tip is to check if the keyboard is responding by pressing "caps lock" and/or num lock" (if your keyboard has a numeric keypad). There is an LED light in the key itself and if the LED goes on/off during multiple pressses the keyboard should be working and there could be a hardware issue.

 

If the above does not have any LED light activity it is possible the keyboard is defective and may need replacing. In that case you would need to contact HP Support to request a repair.
