Calculator key not working on E580?

2018-07-30, 0:09 AM

Hello everyone,

 

This is my first post on this forum.

 

I recently purchased Thinkpad E580 and using Windows 10 on it.

 

The problem I am facing is the calculator key on the top of the number pad is not working. Can someone pls tell me what could be the problem? I have tried opening it using Function key but it is still not working.

 

 

I am a statistician and user of Thinkpad from last four years. I am used to operate calculator through Thinkpad's built-in key but for some reason it is not working on E580.

 

Please help.

 

Regards,

 

Mazher

Hello Mazher, welcome to the Community,

 

Are you pressing and holding the Fn key at the same time?

Have you perchance swapped the Fn & CTRL keys in BIOS at some point? If you have you will need to press the CTRL key instead of the Fn key. BIOS -> Config -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Fn & CTRL key swap.

 

Please also ensure that you are on BIOS version 1.19, the system we've been testing on has this version and doesn't exhibit your issue.

Hi,

 

I have fixed the issue. Hotkeys drives were not installed. The problem is solved after I downloaded the drivers.

 

Regards,

 

Mazher

Re: Calculator key not working on t580?

2019-11-07, 2:16 AM

How does one/Where does one down load "hot key drivers"? Note-my calculator key worked ONCE when I pressed and held the Fn key...but I'm guessing I need to complete the down load described.

 

Oops, I was reading the posts related to what appears to be an identical key on the 580. My new laptop is a Win-10 T580, and it is on that device that my calculator is not working. I'm distraught, because on my Win-7 P50S, I utilized the calculator for my work CONSTANTLY. I'm hoping that a driver download or something similar will do the trick. Can someone help?
