Question about Belkin Numeric Keypad Keyboard

1 Answer

External keypad problem

I have an Acer notebook that is new and fine. I bought a Belkin F8E466 numeric keypad. My problem is the keypad will only input numbers when I press the NumLock on the keypad. this would be fine, except the keys on the notebook such as J, K, L, and such are now the second function of numeric entry. If I wish to enter the normal alpha characters I have to undo the keypad NumLock. I am constantly jumping back and forth. I tried a friends older Targus keypad and it will enter numbers when it's NumLock is on but leaves the notebook keyboard in alpha mode as I believe it should. My OS is Vista. Is there a fix for this? Thanks for any help.

    Targus external keypad via USB port is operational but only in arow format. When I activbate the numlock function on the keyboard (FN & Numlk (F11)) it works but then I am unable to use the letters U, I, O, K, L, J, M as they are now numlocked. This only happens in a terminal session?

I don't think there is a solution for this, this is by design Probably on your friend's keypad there are only numbers and no arrow functions on 2 4 6 and 8?

NUMERIC KEYPAD NOT SUPPORTED


Might give this a try-right click on your Computer icon-click on Properties-then click on Device Manager. The keyboard is listed there. If it has a yellow exclamation point, or a yellow question mark, then there is a problem. Click on the arrow in front of Keyboards, then right click on the drop down named keyboard. There you can click on update drivers. That should solve the problem.

Work with an external numeric keyboard


I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys


Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.
For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.
SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)
If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.
