X1 Carbon Scroll Lock

Question: X1 Carbon Scroll Lock

Hi Having a issue with Scroll Lock on the X1.I have talked with Lenovo support and they tell me that Fn + C should turn on and off Scroll Lock but that does not work. Have the latest Hotkey Features Integration for Windows installed and running Windows 7 Enterprise Sp1. If i connect a external keyboard i can turn on and off Scroll Lock with the Scroll Lock-key. Anyone with same or similar problem? /Magnus

I know this has been brought up before, but I cannot remove the scroll lock from Excel as there is no scroll lock button.  I have tried Fn+C, Fn+delete to no avail.  It must be there somewhere?? Help wanted please.

Answer:Lenovo W510 scroll lock stuck - no scroll lock key

Hi, Anton8
 
I did some research and found this document from Microsoft that may help. If Scroll Lock is turned on, but there is no Scroll Lock on your keyboard, then you may want to try using the On-Screen Keyboard and see if it is enabled there, There is also a setting on the status bar that should allow you to disable it.
 
Hope it helps,Adam

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

For some time now, i have been experiencing that my Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking) all at the same time, I tried to google it but i can not find any solutions or explanations for it.

Does anyone know if it is bad? and what is causing this?

I am having a wired keyboard with nothing fancy just a standard issue Logitech keyboard.

Answer:Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking)

Can you toggle those functions off, one at a time? Sometimes restarting the computer will use the last state it was in, I'd fully shut down and pull the power cord from the computer and the keyboard cable then put them back and try again.

I'm using an HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook series. I noticed that my Caps Lock LED is not working but its FUNCTION is working fine.. same goes with Scroll Lock. Here's the weird part.. when I press Num Lock ( function key + scroll lock ) the LED turns on! I already tried a system recovery, it didn't solve the issue. Is there something wrong with my BIOS? Any help from you guys will be highly appreciated.. thanks!

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.  To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

Hi,

how to disable Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages?



I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that. I made some googling and found other fix it with Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication set to 0, but I dont have it in registry. Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Hello, I got my new Lenovo Ideapad U410 (Windows 7) yesterday and I'm just starting to get things going. The one thing that has been bothering me is that I can't scroll uing the touchpad. It must be the Page Up button/Scroll Lock using the Fn Key, but I've tried it and absolutely nothing happens. The Fn Key works for the upper keys (F1, F5, etc.) but not for the buttons on the side (Home/Pause, End/Break, PgUp/ScrLk, PgDn/Insert). I figure I should reinstall keyboard drivers? I'm really sorry, I've looked through different threads but it seems they all have a different solution and I'm getting a bit confused haha.  Thank you!

Answer:U410 Scroll Lock / FN Key not working - I can't scroll using the touchpad

Hi, since you got the laptop yesterday, did you install / uninstall any drivers? Or did the problem exist  right up? ?f the former please roll the driver(s) back. ?f the problem occured later on,you could do a system restore, if you have a restore point, or even since the system is so new,you could restore to factrory settings. after backing up. Otherwise please call Lenovo support, they'll advise you.

Replaced Ubuntu with Windows 8 fine however now on some of my keys the fn key is reversed (Ive included a picture to show which keys). The keys affected imply that number lock is on, however it is not and i have ensured so using registry editor, stick keys is not on either.

I went to get my HP dv4 Pavilion laptop after work tonight to check email and i opened it up and moved around the mouse to wake it up...the lights on they keyboard all came on as if it were starting but the screen stayed black. I waited a few minutes because sometimes it's been known to take a few seconds to actually kick on...but nothing happened so I forced shutdown by holding the power button. Turned it back on and the screen came on(with a "your system didn't shut down properly error screen) but it still started, but now the Caps Lock and Scroll keys had blinking lights on the side and top, blinking together about every second. I tried tapping the buttons and nothing happened. What caused this and how can i get rid of the blinking. I've read from doing a google search that shutting down, taking the battery out and unplugging from the A/C adapter and holding the power button for 15 seconds takes care of the problem...but I would like to make sure that is safe before trying as this is a fairly new laptop(just got it at Christmas time). I'm running Windows 7 if that makes a difference. would also like to add that I just noticed that my little batter icon says it is plugged in but not charging....it's sitting at 80%....this is a brand new ac adapter that I just got last week...so I hope it's not that.Thank you for any help you can give me....and sorry if this isn't the right forum....it seemed to be the best fit.

Apparently Windows 10, and I don't know for how long before that, has had a feature that when you change Scroll Lock / Num Lock key settings there is a notification that flashes on the screen. I have never used these keys and so have never noticed this annoyance before.

However, due to an update in VirtualBox which saves and restores the state of these keys between virtual machines and the Windows Host, I now see these notifications and they are very very annoying. Especially if you are capturing a screen shot.

As you can see from this screenshot of a virtual machine window, it's trashed by the windows 10 overlay. It took me sometime to prove to myself that the problem is the interaction between the VM in virtualbox and Windows 10. I'm not suggesting that this is VirtualBox fault, since someone probably wants the key settings saved / restored in the VM. And I'm not saying that Windows 10 should never display this, since some folks probably love this feature.

But I need to turn it off.

I've looked through the settings and can't see a way to turn this off.
Can anyone show me how to turn off this display in Windows 10?

Thanks much,
wg

I need help. I will explain when I believe the problem began. I Had windows xp running with 3 harddrives and a Cdrom drive. My CdRom drive began to give me problems, so I was going to swap it with one from one of my other computers. At the same time I wanted to change the way I had all my drives connected. I had originally had the 80 gig drive as a Primary Master, with a smaller drive acting as the Slave. I also had the Cdrom as Master Secondary drive and a smaller drive attached as the Slave. Now everthing was running fine, exept that my cdrom drive would read the discs only if it would start up with the disk in the drive. If I tried to change it, windows would ask me to place a disk in the F: drive, when there already was one. I thought to replace the CdRom drive with another working device. while at the same time I decided to change up my Connections. I took the "new" cd rom drive and made it Slave Primary to the Master 80 Gig drive. then I took the two smaller drives and put them together as sencondary devices. when I tried to turn on the computer all that happens is, as soon as I touch the power my 3 lights on my keyboard come on. Num Lock Caps Lock and Scroll Lock. I know the drive is turning on because I can feel & here it wirr. I tried taking everything off except for the 80 gig drive and I still got the same problem. Later on I noticed that there are a bunch of smaller connections that come from the front of my computer power, sleep, and reset buttons. ... Read more

Question: Scroll Lock

Hi all,

I have a Philips freevents laptop and find it works well for what I use it for (browsing the internet and emailing).

I have a small problem in that the scroll lock key seems to be premanently on. i.e. when editing email, i cant use the arrow key to move the cursor back one letter, additionally the delete key does not work. The delete key is the scroll lock key when using the function key.

I have tried to switch off the scroll lock by holding the blue function key and pressing the delete key, but this has no effect.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution you guys can assist me with this frustrating issue. I hope the issue is just me missing the obvious.

I don't think i've ever used this since i migrated to windows 3.1. Think i used it for something like CTRL-BREAK back in DOS.

Every keyboard i've used since then still has it but i've never actually did find out what it's for.
 

Answer:What's the scroll lock for?

The idea was to stop scrolling text in DOS, basically. Theoretically if you pressed Scroll Lock it would cause text to stay within the window, meaning if the text scrolled down - as it filled the screen, like holding Enter would cause the prompt to jump to the next line, the next, etc, then "scrolling" off screen as new text replaced the old.

What you'd end up with is text that got to the bottom then started from the top and went back down again, sort of "locking" it into the given frame of the display. I used it one time in all my years, just once, and it did work, but that was way back around 1983 or something, never saw it as being useful since it overwrote what I was tried to read just as badly as having the content scroll offscreen. Either way I couldn't do what I wanted to do sooo...

Good Afternoon, I am having an issue with my x1 Carbon 2015 (Gen3). This machine uses a different Synaptic package from the x1 Carbon (Gen1) which I have used previously. The package I am using is as per the Lenovo website - version 18.1.27.14. When using Micorosft Excel 2013 and trying to scroll horizontally using the middle trackpoint button and the trakpoint nipple. The cursor changes and displays a horizontal scrollbar icon but only intermittantly works, mostly just after a reboot and then shortly after it fails although still changes the cursor. Verticle scroll works without issue in all applications. I have tried generic synaptic driver package directly from them to no avail. I have tried the Gen1 driver package to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas, similar experience, workarounds? Or a Gen3 that they can try to recreate the same issue? ThanksR

Answer:x1 Carbon 2015 (Gen3) Trackpoing Horizontal Scroll (Excel)

So the issue has moved on a litte. I have managed to find the previous drivers 18.1.27.12 but this has not made a difference to the issue either. However.....When it occurs and I am not able to scroll horizontally if I attempt to scroll using the trackpad it will then reactivate the trackpoint horizontal scroll. So better than previously and a workaround I can probably live with until the release of new drivers. As before though, if anyone is able to test the same circumstances as I have it would be interesting as I can't think what else with my setup could be the issue. ThanksR

Answer:Delete to scroll lock

Sorry, but I don't think that will be possible. The Scoll Lock, together with Caps Lock, Num Lock, and, if you have one, F. Lock, are what are known as toggle keys in that they toggle the functions of a group of keys on the keyboard. Quite why we still have Scroll Lock I'm not sure, since I've never come across anything where it might be used.

In any case, even if it was possible, you would still have the alternative Del key on the numberpad to deal with.

I have four HP 4530s that the scoll lock will automatically turn on by it self. From time to time you we can use the function key and scoll button to turn it off, but there has been times where a complete reboot is necessary. Any ideas on what could be causing this issue and how to fix it?

Answer:Why is the scroll lock enabling on its own?

I have a new HP desktop pc running Windows 7 home premium.Only noticed this after computer on unattended for an hour or more. In Firefox (latest) open to a page and it will auto scroll to the bottom of page and when I try to move it up via the side bar it continuously flickers and doesn t allow me to move it up. Same problem in IE. Also notice that when you click on Start button, the cursor in the box (lower left corner) slowly moves to the right on its own. Could this be a Scroll Lock button problem like another user had with XP?

On my laptop, while typing in MS Word, my scroll lock will get turned on. Is there a key stroke that I am hitting in error, and if so, what is the reverse so I can turn it off. Whenever this happens, I am in a meeting taking minutes, and I have to completely shut down my computer in order to fix the problem. Help!

Answer:scroll lock key strokes

There is a scroll lock key on a standard keyboard but it's usually in the upper right hand corner where it would be hard to accidently hit. On a laptop, you would probably have to press the function key and the scroll lock key to activate it so again it would be rather hard to accidently turn it on so I don't know how you are turning it on. Can"t you just press the scroll lock key to turn it off instead of rebooting?

Hi, thanks in advance for any advice...I have seen lots of threads regarding this on a PC, but not for a Mac. I am using Mac OS X version 10.5.8 running Excel 2008 version 12.2.3.

The scroll lock is stuck on, yet there is not a scroll lock key to disengage it. (This causes the spreadsheet to shift while the cell doesn't change.) I have tried rebooting, unplugging the keyboard and mouse, and various combinations of shift/control/option/apple with caps lock, num lock and F keys to no avail. Just under the horizontal scroll bar, and next to the Caps and Num lock indicators, "SCRL" is illuminated. There is a scroll lock indicator on my keyboard which is not illuminated.

Well, we do have many things missing on this Workstation (see other comments), but here is the latest discovery. All last week I needed to do some cross referencing of Excel worksheets and Access databases.  I use "Synkronizer", and excellent Excel comparator who's author fears piracy and links the application to the machine and checks EVERY USE!.  So I'm not at liberty to move the application easily.  When needed I export an Access table to Excel, and compare, merge, etc, then reimport into Access or work in Excel....  Long story. BUT the issue.  ^K (Ctrl-K)  which is the cryptic Scrl-Lock key on this so called workstation with 4 dumb wasted keys in the upper right hand, does not work within two Excel sheets. The work around is within Excel, using [Syncronized Scrolling], and [View Side by Side]. BUT now it forces an horizontal scroll, when a vertical would be desireable. What a pain! After I got back, I tested the same thing on my desktop, WITH A REAL SCROLL LOCK KEY, and it worked correctly. If there was a REAL scroll-Lock key on the W540, this would not be an issue. What is the point? The W540 is NOT a Workstation. If you do not program, work in Excel or Access, then this is a moot point.  The W540 is a dumb terminal for cloud applications, surfing, eMail, watching YouTubes and videos. For this one, there is really NO workaround. Am I wrong?  Has someone tested the multiple windows scroll...

Hi all, I pretty much always scroll by holding down the middle button and pulling down on the Trackpoint. But somewhat recently I've noticed a new problem -- it seems a number of sites now change pages when the middle button with Trackpoint veers a bit to the left or right. For example, I'll be scrolling down, and then all of a sudden I'm flying off to other pages (because my pull on the Trackpoint isn't perfectly vertical). Has anybody else noticed this on certain sites you visit? Is there some setting that might help stop this "page changing" behavior? Thanks!

I have an interesting problem that I have not been able to fix. It all started when my keyboard died and I had to get a new one. I bought a fairly cheap one from ebay, with illuminated keys. My old keyboard also had illuminated keys, but it has transparent keys and EL backing for the illumination as well as it's own on/off button to turn the lights on and off.

The new keyboard has black keys, with transparent letters and uses LED lighting for the illumination, but the backlight turns on and off with the scroll lock for some crazy reason. I use my keyboard in the dark quite a bit which is why I always get these illuminated keyboards, but when I boot into windows the scroll lock is always off by default.

I wanted the backlight on as soon as I turn on the computer, but my motherboard's BIOS has no option for it ( Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3l , Award BIOS I believe ). So I wanted it on at least for the login screen and after login to desktop. I did some google searches and found these keys which should enable this:

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators"

and also

"HKEY_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators"

Setting these keys to a value of "6" is supposed to enable the NumLock and ScrollLock at the login screen as well as after login to the desktop. Well, it doesn't work and the values keep changing back to a value of "2" which is NumLock only.

You need to open Notepad and copy-paste the folowing script:
Set wshShell =wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim i
i=0
do while(i<=0)
wscript.sleep 200
wshshell.sendkeys "{SCROLLLOCK}"
i=i+1
loop
Now save it as .vbs (any name)

As a last resort you need to create a task to your pc to start it on log in.
In windows 7 Start on search type : task and you will find the Task Scheduler , start it and create a new task in "Task Scheduler Library" by right click and Create Task ;now in trigger section create new trigger and select Begin The Task : At Logon and Any User , then in action create new Start a Program and select your script , finaly in Settings Section select: Allow task to be run on demand , also Run task as soon as possible... and as last "If the task is already running , then the following rule applies : stop the existing instance. Now reboot your system and it will turn scroll lock on .

Hello, does anybody know, how to swap these both keys? I've searched the registry, but I haven't found anything...

Did you look at software available for download for your computer? If it is there, then you can download it, uninstall the current version, reboot and install that one and it should load the original files back in place.

Related: Would I be able to remove the HD from this laptop, place it into another laptop, and have access to the files present on it? Or would this require formatting or installation in a HD case in order to transfer the files over?Note: This has nothing to do with my other active thread. Another computer entirely.

You need to transfer first the documents from your hard drive as a safety procedure. You would need an enclosure adapter and another working computer to do this -> http://www.liutilities.com/how-to/install-laptop-hard-drive-to-desktop-computer/You could also follow the link you provided to diagnose the particular error codes on your startup problem.

UPDATE Hi, you can lock the "Fn" key through pushing the combination of both "Fn" + "Esc" keys. Kind regards,J_Peter_S ------- Hi, I searched intensively, but couldn't find the way how to activate the "Fn" key lastingly for this particular Lenovo X1 Carbon model. I have to use very often traditional F-Keys (e.g. F4, F5). Therefore, I'd like to lock the "Fn" key like on traditional keyboards. Please let me know how to lock the "Fn" key. Thanks in advance, and kind regards,Jochem
