Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

Keyboard doesn't work

Several times, on this brand new Gateway, the keyboard fails to function. None of the keys work, and the lights (as on Num Lock) are not lit. On the Control Panel the "Keyboad" is not listed. Something has removed the Keyboard Driver. This has happened three or four times. The keyboard that came with the computer has a serial port connection. After rebooting a couple times, because of Plug and Play, the keyboard again functions. Help remove the frustration. Thank you. JoeJoe

It's possible that you have hit the Num Lock key while you had another key pressed. Try the following combinations, one at a time, to see if any of them work. Be sure to test each one before moving on to the next one.

Shift and NUM LK

A lot of times characters will swap places if one of these combinations has been pressed, and pressing the combination again should switch it back. Let me know how it goes! If this doesn't work, we'll try something else.

Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

Typing numbers instead of letters

Your keyboard has "extra" keys:
* print-screen / system-request
* scroll-lock
* pause / break
* num lock

Press that "num lock" key.
For a laptop keyboard, you may have to hold down the 'FN' key,
at the same time that you press "num lock", to enable/disable this function.

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.

Cap Lock on or off

Your EX 110 receiver has 3 indicator lights (LEDs) that display the status of the Caps lock, Function key, and the Num lock during normal operating mode. These lights will also flash when the connect button on the receiver is pressed.
LED A: Indicates that the Caps Lock (Capital lock) key is on when lit.
LED F: Indicates that the F keys are in Standard F Keys Mode when lit and in Enhanced F Keys Mode when the LED is off.
  • Your EX 110 keyboard has an Enhanced F Keys Mode for F keys that provides additional functions you can program. See Knowledge Base article 9526.
LED 1: Indicates when the Num Lock (Number lock) key is on. This function allows the number pad to produce only numbers

Meaning of indicator lights on wireless receiver

I concur 2/3's with yooperbud.

1 = System is connected and working
A = Cap locks On= Cap lock is on. Off = Cap lock is off.
F = Function Key usage. On = I'm going to use the alternative fuctions of the F keys as programmed in the Keyboard settings. Off = Your using the standard features of the F keys.
