How to use calculator portion of DELL Keyboard

I have never used the DELL keyboard numbers (NumLock) area of keyboard, and just realized that, yes, I would like to be able to calculate while I am typing at times.
I would say I need a simple lesson re: the right side of my Dell Keybd./NumLock & how to use calculator portion. (also how to possibly incorporate the answer's/problems into an email..later is fine for that).

Should a BLANK SCREEN POP UP WHEN USING NUM LOCK? OTHERWISE, how can I get my answer w/o nvolving another porject I am working on?
Thank you everyone....

As you can tell, I am very new to computers, espec. this function, tho' have no trouble with email, etc

If you want to use the number pad, you have to make sure the the number light is lit, the number light is the lock symbol with 9 inside it. this symbol is found at the top portion of the keyboard. if its lit then you will be able to use the number pad.

Number and letter keys are stuck (type) together


This model has no numlock as it has no keypad. It looks like a faulty keyboard as the linked keys appear to be in the same column in the keyboard grid. You could try Fn+F11 as this solves certain other keyboard problems with symbols etc. Otherwise could be a new keyboard required.

How do I switch from letters to number and calculator on my Dell keyboard Xp operating



Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

The number keys won't work, the ones located on the far right of the keyboard/calculator area....


  • Disconnect and reconnect your keyboard if it is external. Make sure that the connector is completely inserted into the port. (USB plugs fit into ports one way only, and won't allow you to make a connection if you try to connect them in upside-down.) Test the keyboard again.
  • Connect your keyboard to a different USB port.
  • Try a different keyboard on your computer if possible
If same problem occur even though the keyboard is connected in a different computer, then you need to contact a local repair tech and have it repaired.

Thank you!

I would like a manual for the latitude D610 keyboard to know how to use the symbol that are highlighted in bleu


In the lower left hand corner of your Dell Keyboard -- you will see a Blue Key labeled -- "Fn". This key allows you the use of ALL of the other blue labeled keys on your keyboard. You must press the FN key and the other "blue" key at the same time for them to work.

The keys on the right side of the keyboard with the blue numbers on them are controlled by the Numlock key and Fn key. The light at the top of the keyboard near the power button, with the number "9" inside a picture of a lock, will be lit if the Numlock is enabled.
You may need to press the Fn key to type numbers even if the Numlock is turned on. There is a setting in the BIOS called Enable Keypad and if you set it to By Numlock you will not have to hold down this key to type a number.

If you are still having trouble with these keys, please see the general keyboard troubleshooting guide

When i type a-key on the keyboard then a1 appears on the screen in Dell inspiron 1525 laptop,please assist me to get resolve this problem


Most likely you have your numlock key turned on by mistake. Look on your computer and see if there is a light with a padlock and a number in the padlock. It is probably lit up. Now look for a key on your keyboard called "numlock" and press the key once. See if the light goes off. When you have the numlock key on some of the letter keys will work as numbers like a calculator. When you turn it off the keys are back to letters.

My computer keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters.. any suggestions on how to fix it


This is because most notebook keyboards have a number pad incorporated into the right-hand side of the keyboard. Numbers are being typed because the NumLock is active.
To disable this function press the NumLock key (might be marked NumLock or have a symbol that looks like a calculator on it) on the keyboard (you might need to press the Fn function key and the NumLock simultaneously).
