My thinkpad 2373 keyboard keys act like the keypad. there are several keys that don't type letters only numbers. Any suggestions? I've looked at the keyboard in the control panel and haven't been able to get this to change.

Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.

My keyboard asks like a number pad. How do i


Hit the Num Lk key and that should allow your keyboard to act normal.

If you have the Num Lk on then that means the letter keys that correspond with the numbers on a keypad will act like a keypad.

Make sure the Num Lk symbol is turned off by pressing the Num Lk key.

Ibm thinkpad keyboard right side is #'s not letters


Hi,
You have accidentally turned on the "Num Lock", all you have to do is hit the Num Lock key to return the keyboard to normal, it is located at the top right hand side of the keyboard.

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.

Hmmm...you might have accidently pushed the num lock key or fn key lock. pay attention to what leds are lite near the keyboard.

Otherwise I would see if there was a hotkey driver or keyboard driver from ibm's support website.
