Press F2 when booting to access the BIOS and look for the numlock setting. There are options as to how the numlock behaves. Change this setting to your preference, save your changes and restart.

The function key for the numbers on the keyboard i can't seem to stop it. When I want to use the letters i have to use the blue funtion key


The "problem" is simply that there is a persistent toggle. If you press "Num Lk" (I've also seen it labeled "Pad Lk" for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the "Fn" key - it's a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the "Fn" key the entire time.
To fix it, just find and press the "Num Lk" or "Pad Lk" key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves "Fn" keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the "Fn" key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

Numerical keypad offset numlock on keyboard


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

No number lock or schroll lock Keys


Your laptop computer may have a numeric keypad integrated into the
keyboard. The keypad corresponds to the keypad of an extended keyboard.
• To type a number or symbol, press and hold <Fn> and press the desired
key.
• To enable the numeric keypad, press <Num Lk>. The 9 light indicates
that the keypad is active.
• To disable the numeric keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

Number pad does not work


  1. Find Alt code.

    Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.

  2. Enable Num Lk.

    You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.

  3. Hold down "Alt" key.

    Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.

  4. Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.

    Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.

  5. Release all the keys.

    After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.

There is no key for numlock on my Dell studio 15 keyboard


The num lock key is labeled as 'Num Lk' on the Dell Studio 15 keyboard. It is located above the =/+ key next to backspace.

To activate num lock, you cannot just press the button. You have to make sure the num lock light is on and then hold down Fn while using the numpad.

Hope this helps,

Key pad doe not work


This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys.  Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk.  Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off.  Your keyboard should now work normally.  
Any more problems, let me know!
