Look at the top right hand side of the keyboard. See if the NUMB LOCK and FUNCTION LOCK keys are lit. If one or both are lit hit the key to unlock it.

Pressing the WINDOWS KEY and the letter U will bring up ease of access window. Down the list you'll see use without keyboard and mouse. Click there and make sure it is not check marked. You may also need to turn off STICKY KEYS and FILTER KEYS and hit save to unlock it.

Try pressing the WINDOWS KEY and the letter L at the same time and see if that doesn't unlock it. If that locks it instead of unlocking it press it again to unlock it.

If none of these fixes the problem then UNPLUG the laptop from the adaptor. Turn it upside down and remove the battery. Wait one minute then put the battery back in. Reconnect the power supply and reboot the machine.

I`m using a wireless keyboard because the one on my laptop works but it has trouble on the part that has numbers witch are the letters .


From you're description it sounds like the "numb lock" check my be on. (numbers lock). On most keyboards you turn it on when you want to use the numbers pad. Or it may also be some other key shortcut on that keyboard which switches it to a numbers pad.

Yyeah i have a compaq presario cq56 and i dont see numb lock anyone know where it is


There is no numlock key. The reason for that is because there is not a dedicated number pad like on most desktop keyboards. the numlock key specifies using the numbers on the pad, or the arrows and alternate functions of the keypad.

I'm getting wrong letters in the words as I'm typing.


Elementary! The numlock key had accidently been pushed. We had to use the FN and numb lock key together to reset the keyboard.

i think you're computer has a setting changed so that it thinks it's using a keyboard layout for another language.

Keyboards with other languages have those keys in places where the English keyboards have keys as follows / > < [ ]
