Keyboard problem. Gateway keyboard G9900H, date of manufacture is 990704: The number row and letter row below it seem to be somehow connected. When the 1 is hit, a q shows up before the 1; when the q is hit, a 1 shows up before the q. This happens to all numbers and numbers in the q row, except for 5 and 6 and t and y. Tried someone else's keyboard and all was OK. Can I do something to my keyboard so it works OK???

    Thank you for the response. I wasn't looking to fix it -- I thought maybe I inadvertently hit something that caused this.

Just replace the keyboard. It is not worth the trouble of fixing yours when new ones are as low as $10.00-15.00 USD. Also you can take this opportunity to get a keyboard that might have some buttons that could be useful to you IE: internet,e-mail,calculator, plus some have buttons you can set to whatever you want.

    if you tested another kb and everything worked ok then it leads me to believe your keyboard simply got old and needs to be put to rest. Please don't forget to rate me if this helps

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

Some letter Keys on my Keyboard are numbers why


You have enabled the NumLock function of your keyboard. Find the NumLck key on your keyboard. It is normally on the top row of keys or above the numbers keypad. Then press Fn (Function) and NumLck at the same time. That will toggle OFF the numLock setting. It may be different function key combination on the different computer manufacturer. Dell is usually Fn + F4, Compaq is Fn + ScrLK. Each manufacturer may use a different set of key

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Sounds like your keyboard is sticking

Unplug the keyboard and do the following

Look on the bottom you should see some screws, remove the screws and leaving the keys facing down, pop the two pieces apart.

Leaving the electronics aside you can now continue with the following instructions
Ok, once you have the two pieces, all of the keys should stay in there proper place, take and soak that in the sink with some soap and water.
Moving all the keys to get the water to flow through.
Then dry off the Keyboard and vacuum all the excess water off, then replace and screw back together, you should be good to go.

I wouldn't recommend a dishwasher, this could get to hot and melt the keys

Gateway laptop keyboard typing incorrect letters


Windows has support for many input-languages, e.g., for keyboards made in France with accented characters,
and for the DVORAK keyboard layout (which is a complete
rearrangement of the letters on the keyboard for maximum
typing-speed).

Go into "Control Panel", and "Regional and Language" and click the "Language" tab, and switch to the "USA Keyboard".

Keyboard Reset?


try To download the latest drivers for the keyboard that you are using, visit the following Microsoft hardware Web site: 
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=MK



If the issue occurs again, connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions correctly on a different computer, the port to which the keyboard was connected on the original computer may be damaged. If this is the case, contact your computer manufacturer to inquire about how to repair or replace the damaged port.
If the keyboard does not function correctly on another computer, the keyboard may be defective. If this is the case, and the warranty on the keyboard is still valid, you can exchange the defective keyboard for a new keyboard.


good luck :)
