Getting Rid Of Fn lock on Compaq Laptop

I have an older Compaq laptop which seems to be stuck. Whenever I hit a letter with a number on the key (in a box above the letter), the number shows instead of the letter. Then if i hold down the Fn key, the letter appears. How do i get the keypad back to the default letter usage? I don't have the original users manual so I came here for help.

Thanks for any tips.

The keyboard has been put in "numerics" mode.

One of the Fn keys (usually the F keys, the top row of the keyboard) control numerics off and on.

Hold the Fn key down and press the appropriate numeric F key. It will switch out of numeric and give you back your normal I, J, K, L, M, O, P, and U keys.
