Keypad on two different types of keyboards not working

Had a tech woking on PC some time ago. Keypad didn't work, just used keys at top of keyboard. Tech suggested to replace keyboard due to low cost. Finally got around to replacing keyboard with a wireless keyboard. Keypad still doesn't work! Have checked numlock key (light does work) and reinstalling drivers.

How to type @ symbol


I am not familiar with this particular keyboard, but it sounds like you are not finding that symbol (@) on the keyboard. On most keyboards it seems to be the shift of the "2" key (at the top of the keyboard, not on a separate number keypad). I checked keyboards from three manufacturers, and that was the case on all three. However, if that key is not working properly, you could define "(a)" or something similar to be auto-corrected to the "@" symbol. Finally, you could try typing the ASCII character by a keystroke combination such as Alt-0064. In MS Word, when I type that combination (make sure to use the numeric keypad, not the number row keys), I get the "@" symbol. The same works in many programs.

Keypad on right side doesn't work


Try pressing your numlock (top left of the keypad) and try the numbers again. Try your keyboard in another computer -- if they still dont work, you have a hardware failure ... time for another keyboard. If it works on another computer, then I would recommend right-clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Manage". Go into the hardware manager, and delete your keyboard, and reboot. The Windows will find your keyboard and reinstall the drivers, hopefully resetting whatever configuration was previously blocking your keypad keys.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

Main keyboard


The kkkkkkkk problem will be a sticky key, possibly something jamming the contact under the key.
The p* problem is your numlock is on. Laptop keyboards don't have numeric keypads like dsktops do, so when you press numlock on, it uses part of the keyboard to emulate a keypad.

You will probably have to press something like shift+numlock or ctrl+numlock or FN+numlock to release it. There should also be a light at the top of the laptop to indicate it's in numlock mode.

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.
