Try pressing the ScrLk/NumLk key that is above the F11 key.
This will turn off the Number lock.

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

Why is my Laptop keyboard typing the wrong characters is it a bug ?


Sometimes its just down to the Regional settings not set up correctly so the " and the @ are reversed with US and UK keyboards.
However,
Laptops have the in built functionality of using a number pad when the NUMLOCK key has been pressed, there may not be a light to show this !!!!
The following keys will be designated as follows until the NUM LOCK is pressed again.

789------------ >789
UIO------------ >456
JKL ------------ >123
M--------------- >0

Don't get caught out my Father in Law was willing to pay PC World £25 to sort this out until he gave me a call!!!!

How to use keys


There is a BLUE-coloured 'FN' key on the bottom-left of the keyboard. Hold that key down, and then press one of the "blue" keys, to get the "alternate" meaning of that key.

The num lock key controls letters on regular keyboard.


Let Number key stay off then you could use normal 1234567890 that is between QWERTYUIOP and F1-F12

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
