Hello Miriam O Skaggs. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll do my best to help you.
Your computer looks like this on the front correct?
if not please let me know.
For the lights on the front left.
First light is the power light. This will be on when your computer is on.
The second light is called the hard drive activity light. This light blinks when your computers hard drive is being accessed. You will see this light blinking at what appears to be random. On a computer that is idling with no programs running, this should blink here and there. When you run a virus scan, this light will be blinking quickly or on constantly. (As a rule, the more this light blinks, the slower your computer will run).
The third light is your battery light. This can reveal a lot about whats going on with your computer. Go to the following link and scroll 3/4 of the page down to the section *System Battery/Charge LED*. In general, if its green its being charged.
The fourth light is the wireless light. This light is illuminated when the wireless is actively enabled. Should the wireless light be off it is because the wireless switch is off or disabled in windows through the device manager.
The first light above the keyboard is the key when Num lock is on. Number lock makes the keys only enter in numbers.
The second light is The Caps lock, all keys will show upper case letters.
The third light is the scroll lock which locks all features to make things scroll on screen.
Hope this helps. Please accept my answer if it does. Thank you.
