SOURCE: number lock won't turn on

When enabled, this allows the user to type numbers by pressing the keys on the number pad, rather than having them act as up, down, left, right, page up, end, and so forth.
in bios is where you can set number lock to enable at start up
so restart and enter set up(bios) and change it to lock numbers at start up
if you need more help just let me know

SOURCE: number pad

You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.

On a HP pavilion dm4, How do I use the number lock, or basically I just want to add symbols in a word doc using alt 153 ( for example). It doesnt work... Help please


If you have a desktop or a keyboard with the numeric pad, you can enter characters (accented) with an ALT key combination. If on the other hand you have a laptop and no numeric key pad, there should be an Fn key sequence (maybe Fn+F10) that locks the keyboard on the overlaid numeric pad. Better still, display the characters table and pop it open whenever you need a special character.

Keyboard will not work


Try this and see if this works for you. 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).
Let me know if this works for you, if not let me know.

Ten key pad keys are turned on. How do i switch them off


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)

Have an e-machine H6535 running Windows XP home edition 2002 service pack 3. Having trouble keyboarding certain keys. All letter characters and numbers appear up ok but the other keys produce variant...


your "NUM LOCK" is on, you need to find the key and press it, its usually near the top right hand side of the keyboard.
the problem should then be solved

Shift key problem


That means the symbol assigned for shift-2 is currently assigned to the top left character, likely the " symbol. Press shift-Fn to toggle between symbols until the @ symbol works.
