This sounds more like a corrupt driver than a hardware problem-
Go to the Control Panel, open the System folder, then Hardware, then Device Manager. Find and open the keyboard item, highlight the keyboard shown and delete it.
Reboot your system and force Windows to find it again and install the driver.
If this doesn't work, follow the same procedure except delete the mouse listing.
Reboot and Win should find it again and also reinstall the driver.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


    If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

    If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

    How do I lock the keypad?


    You can manually lock the keypad to avoid pressing keys by accident. You can still answer an incoming call and the keypad will lock again when the call is finished. The keypad remains locked until you unlock it manually.
    Depending on your phone model, you can activate the automatic keylock. When the automatic keylock is activated, the keypad locks shortly after you stop pressing keys.
    Please note: with some phones you can still use external keys when the keypad is locked. If you wish to lock the external keys you must lock them separately.

    Computer locked


    there are combinations of function or "hot keys" for enabling or disabling these functions. The NuLk is a combo of the functin key and the NumLk key pressed simultaneously. The scroll lock is the one keeping your mouse from working properly. I'm not familiar with your particular unit to advise which keys are necessary to disable Scroll lock, but they should be marked. Also, some notebooks have a switch to disable the mousepad...Usually indicated by a light located above the pad itself. Good luck Harvester3
