Re: Scroll Lock

Hi,

 

Short answer: I don't know Smiley Sad

 

A couple of guesses:  Fn+C. if that isn't it try bringing up the on-screen keyboard and toggling it there.

Re: Scroll Lock

Yes, I tried the fn C and that too is a hit or miss.  The scroll may work for a minute and then it shuts down again.  One of many maladies on this computer.

 

I also get an error message every hour on the hour as a pop up window that says "message check has stopped working".  I have over 20,000 messages somewhere in space, yet not a one will pull up.  Have tried everything to get rid of this window messge, and yet still it persists.  Just another added mess to this computer that I have owned for less than a yeatr.

Re: Scroll Lock

Someone else had commented this, and the fn+K worked for me.  Just thought I'd share.  I'm on the T470S

 

The keyboard shortcuts for Pause, Break, SysRq and Scroll Lock on the E540 are as follow:


Fn+ B : Break

Fn+ K : Scroll Lock

Fn+ P : Pause

Fn+ S: SysRq
