Solution#1: Accidentally pressing Sft+Numlock key combination will activate & inactivates ten key pad. (You'll see light enabled in padlock symbol with a number in it [i.e.beside ALL CAPS symbol on your lap monitor]).

Use: "ShiftKey+NumLock" (NumbLock Key: 2nd panel from Top right on keyboard)

That is normally caused by the number lock being on. Look for a light that has a padlock symbol with a number in it. Then look in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard and look for a key that says num. lock. Push that button and try typing again. The keyboard should now display the characters that are on the keys

Left side of keyboard 123456789 is not working


Do you mean the right side of the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters?
If so, you have enabled the NumLk which turns the RHS of the keyboard into the number pad.
Press the NumLk key near F11, F12 function key and the NumLk LED will switch off and return your RH keys back to letters.

Press the mem button. 3. Press the desired memory location (0 through 9) or use Caller ID/vol (+ or to scroll to the desired memory location.
