Hello,

I think this is either the Scroll button or Num lock button is on, try toggling them off and on.
Hope this helped.

Laptop keyboard not typing letters


Which is it? Not typing letters or not typing numbers?
For your information there is an Fn+Fx key combination that activate the overlaid numeric keypad (your calculator). Figure out which function key to use with the Fn key.

Hello there,
Did you check the keypad for alternate keys.
For example net books, the number keys on the right side has an alter key on the some letters like the image below. when you accidentally press the [Fn] key, Numbers are written instead of letters..

Press the Function (Fn) key again to deactivate it.

Please check if the "NUM LOCK" is enabled. If it is enabled then press it to disable to resolve the letter/number key issue.

You may disable the Function key by removing the VAIO Event Services Utility or HKSERV Utility from the Startup.

1. Click on the Start, select RUN, in Run command type: msconfig and press the Enter key.

2. In the MS Configuration Utility, un-check the VAIO Event Services Utility or HKSERV Utility and then click on Apply then OK.

3. Then, restart the Computer. This will disable the Function key in the Computer.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!

You are in Num Lk mode. To leave this mode,
press the NumLk key again, a green LED (1) will
go off indicating you are no longer in this mode.
The Num Lk key usually is in upper right corner of the keyboard.

Fn keys


It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.
