Numerical keypad offset numlock on keyboard


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

    Hi I am using ADESSO WKB-4000US on my new tablet PC. I cannot use the letter U,I,O,J,K,L,M. only numer 4,5,6,1,2,3,0 is display. What shold I disable to make it function as std kb


    Hi thanks for your question.
    Somewhere on your keyboard there a key that says 'num lock' on it usually on the right upper side of keyboard. Sometimes you need to press 2 keys together to dis-activate it. For example Fn key and Num Lock key. Once you got it dis-activated you should be able to use you normal letters.
    Good Luck

    Why do I get a 1 when I type a j?


    Hi, this is becasue your "num lock" key is truned on. on laptops there is no numer keypad so when you press the num lock key some of the letters do double duty as numbers. Just press the num lock key again and it will turn your keyboard back to normal.

    I have an Asus X58L laptop, For some reason there is a letters lock and I do not know how to unlock it. So if I press letter u it gives me 4, if I press p it gives me - and so on, unless I press Fn button


    It sounds like you have the num lock switched on, most laptop keyboards are too small to have a separate numeric keypad so use the letter keys on the right side of the keyboard for this. (you should note numbers as well as the expected letters on the face of these keys).

    To turn off the num lock, hold down the Fn key and press Ins. (located top right of the keyboard).

    Key pad doe not work


    This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys.  Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk.  Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off.  Your keyboard should now work normally.  
    Any more problems, let me know!
