I've been unable to find a solution, but other sites seem to say it's something to do with the [Fn] key toggling it.

@Vigil Rapheal, that's spam, doesn't work, and DOES NOT HELP! Read the OP

@M4ch_n, Did you read the OP? He's asking about how to access the Numpad Feature on Laptops that don't have a real Numpad. He is NOT saying that his (Non-existant, btw) Numpad doesn't work, so System Restore doesn't help.

Sorry if this is Necro-posting, but I was a little mad about the fact that people are not paying attention to a question.

SOURCE: hp probook 4520s numeric keypad not working even

Hello susan, if the numlock key doesnt work.

id recommend for you to do a restore.

just type in restore on the seach bar after you press the start button on the lower left habd side of your screen.

this lets you go back to the previous setting when it last worked.

Send us a feedback if it works.

SOURCE: work with an external numeric keyboard

I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

Press F2 when booting to access the BIOS and look for the numlock setting. There are options as to how the numlock behaves. Change this setting to your preference, save your changes and restart.

I have a keyboard problem - typing a question mark etc produces weird characters - looks like a numlock problem but my Dell XPS 15 has no numlock key - thanks in advance, driving me nuts :)


There should be a num lock key on you computer. You may have to push the fn key located by the windows and the alt key on the bottom left of your computer. And this will give keys other functions. So look again for num lock in small righting on one of the keys

My grandfather has a Dell inspiron 1501 and the num lock key turns on automatically when the computer boots up. The problem with this is the button is too small for him to see to turn off amediately so...


Hi,

Please follow these steps.

Click 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.

Please let me know whether this works or no.

I restarted my computer and keyboard not working


Hello,

It sounds like you might have accidentally turned on the laptop number lock. I am assuming you are seeing that characters are being typed, but the password is not accepted. If this is the case, try turning off the num lock by pressing the FN key (usually found by on the lower left by the CTRL and/or ALT keys).

If this doesn't work, trying entering the BIOS when starting the computer (usually by pressing F2 repeatedly when you see the DELL logo). In the BIOS look for an option for the numlock and turn it off.

Last shot - I have seen a few times where num lock is remembered when an external keyboard is used and then stays enabled on the laptop after it is disconnected. If you used a plugged in keyboard and/or use a docking station, you may want to try plugging in the keyboard again, disable NumLock (above the number pad on the right) and then shut down. Remove the external keyboard and I suspect the laptop won't have this issue.

Hope this helps,

Chris

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.
