I think for your laptop the number lock key is a second function... Try holding down the function (Fn) key and pressing the F11 key, hopefully that will turn your number lock on/off.

Keyboard typing numbers instead letters


Hi Tiffany,
The Numlock on your laptop is on that is why instead of letters you are getting numbers. In order to get it back to letters please check the key that says Num Lock where the green light is lit up all you have to do is to press it again to disable Num Lock. If in case you can't see it you may want to try pressing Fn + F11 once and check if you are still getting numbers, press Fn + F11 to disable it. Hope it helps.

Medion notebook typing normally. getting numbers instead of letters


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

Some of my keys are printing differently in my Toshiba Satellite A75 S209 Laptop


You need to turn off the Number Lock. Press the ScrLk/NumLk key it is located near the F11 key. When you turn off the number lock the NumLk LED light will also switch off and you will get letters instead of numbers.

I don't have a lap top but a PC and when I type anything it comes up with numbers instead of letters. I don't have a fn key so what do I do?


Hi.

You have your Number Lock on. Look in at the top right of the keyboard for a key which says Num Lock on it and press that key. That will remove the Number Lock and you will be able to type letters as normal.



Regards.

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.


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.

Simply change my keyboard from typing numbers instead of letters..I.e. I'm trying to type yonkers and it gives me y6...I know it is a simple F6 or F2 function but I forget. Its been a while since I u


You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
