Have you tried pressing Number Lock? The key may be labeled "Num Lock". If the Number Lock key is labeled with a different color than the letter keys, you may have to hold the corresponding colored key (like Fn or something) while pressing the Num Lock key.

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u


You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

I am looking for the number lock key on my gateway computer


The Number Lock function is accessed by pressing and holding the blue "Fn" located at the bottom left of the keyboard and the key with a "padlock graphic" with a number "1" on it. Release both keys and number lock is activated. Press the same key sequence again to shut it off.

The Number Lock function and graphic is shown at the top of page 19 of the "Gateway Hardware Reference Manual" and is presented in the link for easy access.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks.
