Hello,

A keypad overlay may be on. If the numlock light or cursor control
mode light is on, press Fn + F10 to turn off the cursor control mode
light, or Fn + F11 to turn off the numlock light.

If the problem occurs when both the keypad overlays are off, make
sure the software you are using is not remapping the keyboard.
Refer to the software documentation and check that the program
does not assign different meanings to any of the keys.

Should this not work, let me know. Any further questions, use the comment box below as well to contact me. I'll receive an email notification of your additional question rather quickly so stay online.

Thanks for using fixya.

Can only certain alpha keys


I would try cleaning your keyboard. If you are gentle you can remove the F10 key and check that they is no dirt underneath. Check other keys near the F10 key in case others have the same problem. I know that a sugary Cola spillage on a keyboard really sticks things up. In that case it was easiest to get a new keyboard.

Left side of keyboard 123456789 is not working


Do you mean the right side of the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters?
If so, you have enabled the NumLk which turns the RHS of the keyboard into the number pad.
Press the NumLk key near F11, F12 function key and the NumLk LED will switch off and return your RH keys back to letters.

Keypad stack up


Just want to verify which key pad you referring to? The alpha numeric keypad or the touch pad for the mouse pointer control?

Try this first. Power on laptop then hold down F2, check if you can access BIOS. If yes try F8 then boot to safe mode. Check if you can login to windows in safe mode. If yes then do a system restore from the date where every thing was working fine.

Else replace the keyboard and keyboard cable.

Mouse pad doesn't work


On the laptops keyboard you should find that one of the F Keys (ie F3) will have a picture that looks like to touchpad on it. If you press and hold the blue FN key in the lower left of the keyboard and then the F Key that might restart it working again. Good Luck
