Hello,

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

Did you check the keypad for alternate keys.

I have a sony vaio lalptop and some letters are not working at all: 9,o,l,,,. (I am on another laptop). Help


Hi treborswindl
Look on the keyboard to see whether any of the function keys on the top row are on. If so, you have to turn it off.
How do you do it?
Locate the [FN] key at the bottom (this is the function key between the [CTRL] and [WIN] keys.
Hold down the [FN] key and the numbered function key which is on ( for example F11 ) the top row which is lit.
Goto Microsoft word or Notepad and try out your keys.
Hope this will work for you.
Good luck

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!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I've got 2 eeepcs, with identical problems,


When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Fn key plus and probably the Scroll keys, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

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.
