Question about HP Pavilion N5150 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard keys are including numbers with it

Keyboard keys on my laptop keep typing numbers . When I press keys q, w, e, r, u, i, o, p, they would type numbers with it. The row of letters would be like ( 1q 2w 3e 4r 7u 8i 9o 0p) (not including t and y in the middle.) It's very annoying because i have to backspace every time i type to get rid of the numbers...I've never had a problem like this before. Can anyone help me?

Hello Rich,
This happens when the nubmers which are on the alphabet keys are enabled. You can stop this by holding Fn key on the notebook then press Scroll lock once. This will disable these number.

Look if your Num Lock is on, then turn it off. Try also another keyboard, to see if the problem presists.
I think it's a very little thing, but i can't help you more unless i see it.

Good Luck :)

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

The number 2 is showing up on your keyboard because you have the Num Lk (Number Lock) key on and you are probably hitting the FN key then the K key so the little number 2 that is on the K key appears as what is typed. for example: On my keyboard there is a Big Letter K key and also on that key is a small number 2 which is blue. In order for me to get the number 2 when I type I have to have the Num Lk key on and then I have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key on the lower left of my keyboard then hit the K key and the number 2 is what gets typed.

My laptop keypad only inputs numbers consecutively when i type on the keypad. I disengaged num lock and it still does it. What should i do?


There is no seperate numpad in the keyboard. If you wish to use the special functions you should press and hold the Fn key while pressing a key. Special functions include stuff like switching display etc., I am sure you are aware that you have to press and hold shift to type the symbols.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
