A common problem when you update to a new OS the drivers have to be sorted out. If you jumped from Vista to Win 8 try using Win 7 drivers. You will have to modify the Win 7 and make the drivers compatible with Win 8.

    Yes, If they are available, If not use Win 7 drivers. You have to modify the Win 7 drivers to be compatible with Win 8.. Avoid software that you use to find drivers, It's hit and miss at best. Sometimes a rip off.

SOURCE: Keyboard Produces Numbers Instead of Letters

I have the same problem. Click the Windows start button. At the bottom is a Windows Serach box. Type 'keyboard'. A virtual keyboard appears. Click the NumLock key on the Virtual Keyboard. This should override the issue you are having and your keyboard and keys should now work. Otherwise reboot!

My grand daughter has some how turned on the FN key so when she is typing numbers come on the screen instead of the letters. How do we stop this ?


The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.

Keys numbers 0,9,8 and lettrs o,p, l do not function what should i do?


according to my assessment, your numlock function is on.

If you're writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Certain keys not working


If its the keys toward the right side of the keyboard and they are typing numbers instead of letters, you just need to turn off num lock.
You can do this by pressing your num lock button (might be Fn + numlock) or by plugging in a USB keyboard and pressing numlock. You can also use the on screen keyboard to change the setting in windows.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful, or reply with more specific details about the issue (brand, model, version of Windows, etc). Thanks!

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
