I think you are the numlock mode. My keyboard uses SHIFT+NUMLK to change back to regular keyboard mode.

Sounds like your keyboard may be faulty / not connected properly

this is also a common symptom of a keyboard spillage, which causes some of the membrane tracks to fuse / short, if this is the case then a replacement keyboard unit is required,

you can check the keyboard connection by removing the keyboard by removing the facia above the keyboard and remove the retaining screws, the keyboard should be connected by a fine plastic cable this is held in place by a socket with a clip that wedges the contacts agains the connector and holds the plastic in place.

check the connector cable is fully in place and retest.....if this is not resolving your problem, you need to replace keyboard, the PN of the keyboard should be listed on the reverse of the keyboard so just order replacement online using that PN to get the correct part (ensuring that it is for the correct location (as a US keyboard varies from a uk keyb etc....))

Fn+num lk not working


There is no standard meaning to any Fn +Fx key combinations. It depends on the manufacturer and the laptop model.
Usually the Fn key works in combination with the Function (Fn) keys F1-F12, and maybe ESC.

In my Toshiba, there is an overlaid numeric pad that can be activated by pressing Fn +F11. Once the sequence is pressed the F11 key led remains lit, and the overlay active. Pressing the F11 key restores the normal keyboard. Fn+Num Lock does not do anything.
Please check you laptop's manual to familiarize yourself with the uses of the Fn key on YOUR computer.

How do i disable the f keys


Hi There,
After a few hours of research, it looks like the function or F keys under windows are pre-programmed and there's not a whole lot you can do to change it. There are, however, a few options:
Keymapping software: Usually ships with (and free to download) logitech or other gaming keyboards. The software allows you to reprogram any key on your keyboard to do what you want it to.
Hold down Fn+F11, while still holding F11 let go of Fn. Some laptop users have reported that this turns off Fn keys. Also, Holding down Fn+Scroll lock or Fn+Num lock in the same fashion has had varied results.

Keyboard of myASUS K50IJ-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) is locked How to unlock the same? Kindly help


Well, do you mean only the keyboard is locked? Can you boot the system properly? Is the mouse working? Which Operating System is running on your Laptop?
Here are a couple solutions you can try before you let me know the above queries.
1. Press and hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard while pressing the L key on the keyboard once. In other words, Press Windows Key + L once. If this doesn't work, don't forget to include the Fn key while pressing these two keys. Windows+Fn+L. Still nothing?
2. Turn off the Machine, remove the battery and unplug the charger. Leave it for at least 10 seconds, you can press the power On button on the laptop without the battery and the charger installed/plugged in. Now re-install the battery, and turn back On the machine. It should work.
If you need further help, if the problem persists, Let me know with the details.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My laptop, a Satellite #L455, is giving me numbers when I type in letters. This does not occur all the time but often when I'm playing games.


the letter that does is U,I,O,PJ,K,L,M it happens all you need to do to fix that problem is press the Fn buttin and while keeping this down it should be the F11 button make sure you look at the other F button as it will show you a little box with load of dots inside it if it is the F11 button then pressing this once will turn it back to letters this function is for when your doing calculations its easier to use it but some people dont like it you can turn it on and or off by pressing the Fn button and pressing the F11 button

Num lock activated and can't turn it off


One of your Function keys (F11, F12, etc., usually F11) will also have the NumLock function on them. So when you hold Fn and press F11, it will toggle the Number Lock. Try holding Fn and press F11, this should turn it off (and back on should you ever want to use it again). Your keyboard should be labeled with the various functions keys have when Fn is pressed, you may have to look for the one that reads NumLk.

Some of the letters i type are coming out as numbers


It sounds like the Numlk (number lock) is turned on. You will need to find the button on your laptop called ScrLk or NumLk. Press shift and this key to turn off number lock, or it is ctrl and the ScrLk button.

Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 non-numeric keys locked


Your keyboard logic chip is in need of therapy.

Replacement of keyboard warranted.

Now, I thought that it might be a redesignation of your language code, but that proved not to be the case.

Keyboard Fn key


Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
