Making words with letters


Do you mean "numbers" with letters?

If yes, please check the number lock key is not turn on and if it is so you need to turn off it.

You can locate number lock key with one of the function keys depending on the make and model of the computer.

To turn it on / off you might need to use "Fn" key that again depends on the make and model of the computer.

To identify, you need to check any of the function keys, what is printed in white color, F1, F2... so on or the image. whatever matches with the color of "Fn" key, that function can only be used while holding "Fn" key and pressing the particular Function key.

When I type letter keys, numbers come up with the letters


That's because some are dual function keys; you've probably hit the 'Alt' or 'Fn' key to the bottom left of the keyboard by accident. If you look carefully at the letter keys, they should have numbers on them in a different colour/smaller text.

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

My laptop is only typing the numbers that appear on the letter keys. For example when I hit the letter J, it types a number 1. When I hit the letter k key, it types a 2, etc. How do I get it to go back...


Usually you have to hold the "Fn" key to get to these. Look for a "NumLock" key to turn this off. You may need to use the "Fn" key to select numlock.
