The numeric key pad on my keyboard does not work

There's usually a Numlock key that turns off the cursor movement and turns on the numeric keys. If it doesn't say "Num Lock" or something similar, you might need to press the Fn key with the F1-F12 key that looks like a numeric keypad. Pressing the Shift key while pressing a number on the numeric keypad should give a number output if the Num Lock is turned off, the cursor movement if Num Lock is on.

How i can enble function key

HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.

Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.

How do i un freeze my nokia twist

  1. Make sure that the keys are actually locked. If you attempt to unlock a keypad that is not locked, nothing will happen. Look on the phone's screen for the key icon that indicates the keypad is locked. If you try to press any of the keys and the word "Unlock" appears on the screen, your keypad is definitely locked. If you do not see the indicator but are unable to use the keypad of your Nokia 6085, your battery could be dead, so try recharging it and then see if the keypad works.
  2. Enter the unlock sequence. If the key indicator appears on your screen, you need to enter a simple sequence of keys to get the keypad working again. For the Nokia 6085, select Unlock and then quickly press the * key. If you wait more than 1.5 seconds to press the * key after selecting Unlock, it will not unfreeze the keys so make sure you enter the sequence very quickly.
  3. Turn off the automatic keyguard. If you are tired of having to unfreeze the keys every time you want to make a call, you can program the Nokia 6085 to always remain unlocked. In the menu, go to Settings, then select Phone, then select Automatic Keyguard and choose Off.

Hi There. Not sure what key i've gone and pressed. The majority of the letters/numbers on my keyboard all work in first hand english but some of the keys where i have an option with a smaller blue number...

You have turned on the numeric keys on your laptop. It is turned off/on by the following.

Press the Num Lock key. If nothing happens, try Shift+Num Lock.
If the text Num Lock is shown in a different color, find the matching-color key, such as Alt or Fn. Then press that key in combination with Num Lock.
You’re successful when the Num Lock light comes on. At that point, the keyboard has switched into numeric keypad mode.
