I don't get it? I have no problem with ASCII codes on a desktop computer with a 10 key. On the laptop with no 10 key, nothing! Am I missing some secret keystroke? This bugs me...please help. -Jim

Laptops without a separate 10-key pad usually require some other keystroke than NUM LOCK to get the thing into that mode - it should have been in your manual.

Of course, laptops WITH a separate 10-key pad (like my 17" HP - I've got a large lap! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]) should work just fine with the NUM LOCK key alone. If yours isn't, then it might be time for a trip to the service center.

The deal with extended characters on a desktop is that you hold down Alt and key in the the code with the numeric keypad, right? So the the deal is, you need a numeric keypad on the laptop but there ain't one. Look close at the keys. Usually, somewhere in the 'J-K-L-;' region, screened in on the key bezels, will be a keypad layed out sort of diagonally. There should also be an alternate function key like 'Fn' (Toshibas) somewhere. Typically you hold the 'Fn' key down and press one of the FKeys (likesay F11) to activate that keypad... should be in the manual somewhere. Anyway, once you have that pad activated, you can do the Alt + 'character code' like on a regular keypad. Of course, then you have to deactivate it again so you can type normally.

I've mainly used Toshibas, it could be different on other brands, but every laptop I've ever seen had one of those little keypads screened onto the keys.

Hope that helps, good luck.

Chip,

You made me a happy man tonight!

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000. With the numberic lock on, I used the Fn Alt and got it to work.

I owe you one. If ever my way, drop by and I will buy you some grub and a brew!

Appreciative,

Jim

My pleasure, I was pretty happy when I first got that one figured out too.

I'll look you up next time I'm in your neighborhood; my sister lives in San Diego and I go through LAX whenever I get away for a hike in the Sierras... which is waaaay overdue now.
