The keyboard is disabled while in tablet mode and you can't enable it. You can however, use the on-screen keyboard. Just type "On screen keyboard" in the start menu before switching to tablet mode and you should find it there.

Thanks Alex. I can not use the on-screen keyboard. I'm connecting a monitor to the 2n1 and needing to use just the keyboard with the monitor.


Oh, now I get it. Well, in that case, you'll have to use an external keyboard, as the laptop's own keyboard is hardware-locked while in tablet mode. The only other thing I suggest doing is checking the BIOS for an option to prevent the system from locking the keyboard when switching modes.
