Num Lock Icon is shown on the screen - how do I get rid of it?

I have new E420s.

Num Lock Icon is shown on the screen all the time whether it is on or off.
Can't get rid of that!!
Thanks

Icon is on screen. What is it?

I've got this icon constantly on my screen:

From Lenovo

 

What is it? And how do I make it go way?

 

 

And another thing: I'm using a brand new Lenovo E420s and the fan is quite loud (I may be a bit picky). Sometimes it's on even if I've just got a few tabs running (No heavy flash stuff). Does anyone else have this issue?

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

Welcome to the forum both of you!


Try the following tip:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74554&selectarea=SUPPORT&tempsel...


If you're running Windows 7 then you would find the option by right clicking on desktop -> Screen resolution -> Advanced settings -> On-Screen display.


To turn it off permanently you can uncheck "Enable On-Screen display" -> OK in the above menu, but it will also turn off on-screen display for volume and display, they'll keep on functioning silently though.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

Thank you! It was set to "Show permanently" and I moved it to "Show for a few seconds" and it worked.

 

You don't happen to know anything about the cooling fan issues that I'm having? I'm kinda hoping for a BIOS update with improved fan control or something.

Hi,
I also have a new Lenovo 420s. The fan is very quiet even if it runs heavy tasks.

Re: Icon is on screen. What is it?

I have a friend with a 15" Lenovo Edge (sorry, I don't have any other details). She has the vexing issue of a microphone icon popping up in the bottom middle of the screen all the time. Is there a solution for this? I read this post, but there was no solution given... Thanks for any help,

Paul
