My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]


Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

Hi thanks for your question.
Somewhere on your keyboard there a key that says 'num lock' on it usually on the right upper side of keyboard. Sometimes you need to press 2 keys together to dis-activate it. For example Fn key and Num Lock key. Once you got it dis-activated you should be able to use you normal letters.
Good Luck

I locked my keyboard on fn by hitting some buttons i dont know how i did it though ! like when i go to type j or something a 2 comes up . i have to hold the fn key just to type this now. Help!


Ok, your numLK (number lock) is activated. Hold the Fn key on the bottom left or right of the keyboard, then press the Insert/numLK key on the top right of the keyboard. You should see a graphic box indicating "number lock off." Hope this helps. RoyBK

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
