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: my laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

SOURCE: number keys not working dell laptop

have you or anyone spilt liquid on the keyboard?

do you regularly clean your keyboard?

sorry for the obvious questions but you would be suprised how much chaos it could cause....

here are a few checks for you to do (if you can use a usb keyboard)

1) clean your keyboard of moisture, dirt and grime

2) check your antivirus to do a scan to ensure that the keyboard drivers havent been corrupted by a virus

if still the same then:

3)remove the keyboard and look for corrosion on all pins and/or conectors (corrosion will be a greenish/white color)

if corrosion is found then use a solution (cheapest being vinegar) to clean the pins and/or conectors

if still the same then your keyboards driver maybe corrupt, if so then download the driver from dell's driver site and install, after the instilation do a create restore point or back up your drivers (id put them on a dvd r disk myself) and keep them for future reference.

if this doesn't sort out the problem then it's definately a hardware failure, which means fail......

hope you sort the problem out soon....;-)

SOURCE: the keyboard on my laptop has numbers and keys on it

Hi,
It sounds like the Num Lock is on.

Depending on the make of the laptop there is a few different ways to turn it off.
Either just hit the Num Lock key and see if it goes off, hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key or hold down the shift key and hit the Num Lock key.



Regards.

SOURCE: how can i make a forward slash on a mexican

On these keyboards, the non colored symbols are typed by holding down the shift key and tapping the symbol. If you want to type the colored key, then you have to hold down the Alt Gr key and tap the colored symbol key.

Numbers not typing


Hiya Sherry

Sounds like one of the Shift keys are stuck, does it happen with just the number keys or do other keys that have extra characters on do the same.

You might want to also look at Windows Sticky Keys options

Hi , I am unable to log in into my laptop as its asking for product key. I checked on the bottom of it and found that the product key is worn out.Please hekp me how can i get product key for it? Type...


Can you get ANY numbers off the sticker? What you can do is contact DELL and give them your service tag number, they should have your product key (on the bottom as well). Also, the number should be in the CD sleeve that came with the laptop.

From Dell user manual:
The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, press <Fn> and the desired key after enabling the keypad.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

Wireless light will not come on. Please help


Lots of times on the Dell laptops, there is multi functions keys. You may want to look on your numbers keys for a satelite symbol. If you have this, just press func then the key with this symbol. You will then see a notification of your wifi being activated in the lower right hand corner.
