Locked on alternate numbers on Compaq Presario 1700T

I have hit a key or two keys inadvertently and locked the alternate numbers that are on keys u,i,o,p,j,k,l,;,m,, and ? They give me numbers, thus I cannot type a sentence or log onto sites, send email from that computer. Suggestions GREATLY appreciated! Thanks. I am sure it is simple, and I have tried all keys, with and without shift, control and alt even in combinations without success. Stuck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Either as what you described or the keyboard is really faulty. The keys you posted are within the same area and therefore would have a common matrix/connection. Check the individual keys and try to determine if one is uneven, dislodge it back into position or snap a fingernail at it to jar it back. This is a test/temporary remedy/check. If proven so, it would require a new keyboard.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

Yyeah i have a compaq presario cq56 and i dont see numb lock anyone know where it is


There is no numlock key. The reason for that is because there is not a dedicated number pad like on most desktop keyboards. the numlock key specifies using the numbers on the pad, or the arrows and alternate functions of the keypad.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop and was told that I had my scroll lock activated because the numbers on my number pad only half work. The 0, ., 4, 5, 6, /, *, - all work. The 1, 2, 3, enter, 7, 8,...


Find 'fn' key (this is short for function) then find 'num lock' key in your case it must be another key with and extra label with the same font color as 'fn', this means this key behaves differently when pressed with 'fn'. When you have located both key press fn+num lock a led indicating that numeric lock is activated should go off and you're done.

SHIFT LOCKED ON


There should be a function key that is a light blue on the lower left. Hold that down and hit the NUM lock key at the upper right.

What happened is that you turned the numlock on just like on a regular keyboard but on a laptop, its a secondary function key where the letters double as numbers when the function numlock is turned on.

give it a try and let me know.
Good luck

Compaq presario show straight line in middle of monitor


That happens only when there are loose connections and/or a problem like you dropped the PC or hit it hard. It MAY be because of moisture.

I guess you need to show it to an authorised HP doctor.
