Have you made sure that the keys are not stuck,
if not lift up the key slightly, NOT so it comes off but then try type. it could be a problem with the motherboard, but i think it is a problem from a "driver" being corrupt. please contact me if you need more assistance

Hi, my daughter got hold of my acer laptop, and well now certain keys with a number over it (m j k l u I o p) they don't work, instead whatever number is also on that key comes up instead. How can I fix...


The NumLk key has been pressed and locks these keys to type numbers instead of letters.
The NumLk key is usually located above the F10, F11 function keys and there is a LED that lights up when the NumLk is selected and a LED light also lights up when the Caps lock key is pressed.

Dell keyboard locked up


Dear Sir,

PLzz folow this step to unlock your keyboard

Step 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.
  • Step 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.
  • Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  • Step 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.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  • Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  • Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard


  • Thanks For Your Time.

    I just bought an Acer laptop andkeys are all different from desktop keyboard so wondering how I can find out what the keys are for without just hittin all of them. Are there specs available? Thankyou. Dee...


    The symbols on the keys represent what will appear on screen

    If the symbol is in blue that means you have to press the FN key over on the left side bottom row

    Other symbols from the keyboard are typed by using the shift key

    You can always buy a keyboard and plug it into the laptop if it proves to difficult

    Laptop keyboard issues


    Is this a laptop? Some laptops will allow you to use these keys as the number pad/arrow pad as well in a certain mode. You will likely be able to turn off with a combination of the FN key plus one of keys F1-F12 (the function key will perform the action shown as a symbol on these keys).

    If none of the symbols seems to indicate this mode. Try each combination and test to see which combination sets your keyboard mode back to normal.

    When ever i press certain symbel keys its wierd


    You may have activated a shortcut key on your keyboard such as the Fn (function) key. It looks like this

    Fn and usually situated on the bottom left hand side of your keyboard near the left hand cntrl button.

    Some function keys when pressed once remain on. Once they are on they can cause different symbols to appear in place of the normal keyboard ones. If you press your Fn key again and then try typing on the keyboard once again it may help fix your problem.

    I hope this helps
    Cheers

    FUNCTION KEYS & OTHER RIGHT HAND SIDE KEYS


    That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
