Please check if the accessibility option is enabled to convert your number pad to mouse keys, if you have a full numberpad.

Since you have not specified what it the model number of the computer, i am giving your common steps.

Also check restart the computer in safe mode (keep tapping the F8 key while you restart and choose the safe mode option using the up and down arrow key and hit enter) and check if the number keys work.

HOW TO GET MY LAPTOP TO STOP USING THE PINK ALTCAR


I found this on another website and it worked for me. Good luck.

Okay, I know this is an old question but when i searched for the same problem recently, it was the nearest I could find. So in case others are having the same problem:

The Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. The alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

Tea fell on the keyboard the second line of keys


No, it most probably cannot, keyboards are very inexpensive these days. They are all membrane keypads, underneath, and once liquid, get in between the layers, it is almost impossible to remove. A new KB is in order.

Hi,
Did you or anyone else spilled anything on them? Do you have a pet that may stepped on your keyboard?
What you can do is to take out on of the problematic keys. Disconnect from power and use a small ruler to pop the key out. See if anything is under there. Maybe hair or food. Do not shake your laptop as this can lead to other problems. Get a dry cloth and clean the key base and underneath the key. Reinsert the key and try it again. If this works do the same for the other keys.

You have accidentally turned on the NumLock feature (numeric keypad simulation, you have the digits written on these keys in different color).

The key to turn it off (NumLk) is located in the upper right area of the keyboard, try hitting it alone, with Fn and with Fn + Shift, Ctrl or Alt., checking every time if the "numeric" keys came back to normal.

Hi my sony vaio vgn-sr13gn, shift key does not work at all. not even in Command promt. Both shift keys don't work. What can I do?


A friend of mine has the same problem and i stumbled on your question today. This problem occurred with the Vaio VGN-FZ11E, after very very modest usage, no scratches or damage visible whatsoever.

There's one option out there:

"I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it somehow solved the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you and other people that have had this problem."
Quoted from here

If that doesn't work, seems to me the remark of Benwabnick seems to be the solution, as posted below.

the contact underneath the shift key itself is starting to go bad. Its a common issue with sony laptops, the keys can wear out pretty quickly. You'll have to get another keyboard.
