Check to see if Num Lock is turned on. Depending on your computer, it may light up the key with a green light, or a green light may be lit near the part of the computer where the screen is connected to the computer.

Where is the space key on a alcatelonetouch 292, and how do i get letters instead of numbers


Hi. It looks like you press the # key more than once for space.

Letters are the same, press the key a few time to choose letters or the number.

The manual is here as there's also a predictive text mode:

What does the "9" Light Indicator mean on a Dell


Check to see if the keyboard is typing the correct letters. That should be the numlock indicator to make the keys change from letters to numbers. This is explained on page 24 of your user manual.

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.

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

My Brand new acer netbook has a keyboard problem. The numbers on top only works until the number 9 the number 0 types / and then the blue numbers on the letters are working but the letters are not. Please...


That is because the laptop has been set up using the Fn keys.
Consult your instruction manual refarding the Function Key settings after rebooting the laptop if it is still a problem.

Hi, I have somehow switched the blue numbers on the keyboard, the one at the letters: J; K;L;M;U;I;O and so on. And now instead of them when i type the numbers 1,2,3,4.... will come up instead of...


You have turned on the Number Lock. This enables the number keypad that is embedded in the main keyboard. There is set of three lights to the right of the power button; the middle one indicates when the Num Lock is on or off on the keyboard. To toggle this on or off press and together. The key is between the and the at the lower left of the keyboard.

The user's manual is here: http://static.compusa.com/pdf/Acer_Aspire_5920_Series_NotebookPC-UserGuide.pdf .

I hope this helps.
