Cant find num lock or equivelant on a toshiba laptop


Depending on the age and layout of your keyboard it could be a couple of options. If you have a button that looks like either of the following pictures then press FN key and that button or press the FN key and the F11 key which should have a little square picture that looks like a grid. A couple of higher end models have a little led strip above the keyboard that just looks like indicator lights but in truth are actually toggle buttons as well try gently pushing the lit number one if you have this strip. Hope this helps.

Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

How do I 'unlock' the lock icon on the keyboard?..it won't go off


Push which ever key applies to you, one of the following:

Num Lock
Caps Lock
Scroll Lock

By pushing one of the above keys the lights on the top right of the keyboard should go on and off. On means the lock is activated.

If there is still no response from the keyboard after pushing the key, it is possible that the membrane is damaged. Therefore your keyboard needs to be replaced.

Thanks and keep well!

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

My NUM LOCK doesn't work after the motherboard has been replaced....it's an acer 7720


have you tried a different keyboard? to ensure that it is infact not just the keyboard having a broken key? as the num lock feature has little to nothing as i would see it to do with *********** board? its a standard keyboard thing.. i guess there could be a bios setting? but i would say try that keyboard on a different computer then try another keyboard on your computer? and then let me know - thanks nate
