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.

No numlock key on MX5500 logitech


The ten-key keypad is used for the calculator too. The button to swith between these modes is just aboc=ve the key and has a picture of a calculator. To use directional arrow keys, this keyboard comes with it's own separate arrow keys located under the delete button. They felt no need for directional function, number input function, and calculator function.

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

Are you using a laptop?

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!

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.

I cant use my number pad on the right side of my keyboard.


Have you tried pressing the NumLock-key?
It is located right above the key "7" on the numpad/calculator pad.

Dell Laptop - Keyboard "Fn" is causing problems!


I think it is not the Fn key but the NumLock that is activated. Look for the key labeled NumLk , this is the number lock. Also check if the light on the notbook with a number (usually number 1) is on. If it is on, yo must deactivate the numlock by pressing it again. It works in toggle mode. Sometimes the numlock is activated together with the shift key, sometimes with the function key.
