You've probably got number lock activated / deactivated. This is especially common if you're using a laptop computer. Look for the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard and try pressing it. If you're using a laptop and the Num Lock button is a different color, you might need to hold another key "Fn", Shift, Cntrl, etc while pressing "Num Lock".

I have an RCA Voyager III RCT6973W43. Every time I go to type on the keyboard, I go to type a word/letter and instead for an example: I'll type a letter like "w" number 2 er comes up.

Borrow a keyboard from a friend. If it still does it then there is something strange with your computer. If it does not do it then your keyboard may be corrupt so buy a new one

Blackberry PIN not accepted with desktop Manager

I recently plugged in my blackberry via USB to my computer and received a request to enter my password. If the password was incorrect 10 times then my blackberry would automatically wipe the data.

I had placed a security code to access my blackberry such as: 4404
When I tried typing this code on the BB desktop manager..on my computer. The code was not accepted. i tried over an over, until i realized the blackberrys number key also has a letter key.

Thus instead of typing the numbers 4404 on my computer, i typed the equivalent letter on the 4 key. if 4 is G then i typed gg0g

It worked !!

How do i type roman numbers on a computer?

I think you are talking about bullet points, right? You have to start a list and right click on the number. Then go to Bullets and Numbering and select the type of Roman numerals you like (lower or upper case).

Hi. Whenever I type the letter 'i', I get the number 5

Is this a laptop or desktop. Either way, try a different keyboard. That will tell you if it is hardware or software. If it happens on another keyboard, resubmit your help request with that info.

Learning to type a message

Hi there,

It must be on predictive text. Basically you type the numbers according to any of the letters that are there.

So for example, if you wanted to type "Hello"
It would be 4(H) 3(E) 5(L) 5(L) 6(O)

This will show a word it thinks it can make from these numbers, generally by pressing the star key, you can flick through the options of words. If your word isn't there, you will have the option to type it in manually. For this (using the same example) you would have to type
wait for a bit for the cursor to move over

You can see that predicitve is much faster.

I hope i fix ya problem :)
