Question about Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook
When I use the "num lock" feature, the right half portion of the keyboard becomes numbers, too. The keyboard on this laptop is like the regular keyboard with separate number keyboard. My computer guy fixed this problem once before, but didn't know how he did it, said he was messing around with the buttons and got lucky.
Please help, there is no point of having separate num key and can't use it.
Wyndi Pham When you hit the y button on the keyboard, the caps lock turns on. When you hit the 1 number key, it types three number. when you hit the tab button, the caps lock turns on.
Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop

It does sound like your computer is confused as to what type of keyboard it has. You can try updating the BIOS on the laptop - based on the suggestion in this HP help document:
Let me know if this helps or not.
