Ok in the keyboard there is fn right. Hold FN+Number lock (num lock) then it should transfer back to letters

Hi wa33ban2hart

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

That should resolve your problem.

I hope this helps.

You need to press the "Fn" and "Num" keys. Holding the "Fn" key, press the "Num" key (also printed in blue, in most cases), the release both of them.

The keyboard is locked. Instead of letters, it gives me numbers


Click Fn+Numlk as this switches your keyboard to the numbers printed in blue. Pressing that combination again, puts the keyboard back to normal. The Fn key will switch the function keys to the designated lower operation, so your F11 key has the NumLk operation controlled by the Fn key

Compac laptop keyboard settings are wrong. Letters are locked as numbers. How do I turn this off?


Does your Laptop resort to a Fn key? if it does hold it down and press the key that shows your numlock, the words should be the same color as the letters Fn

Im having trouble figuring out how to use the fn key on my keyboard


Just like a shift key selects the upper case character for a key, the fn key selects whatever is printed on the other keys in the same color used for the letters "fn." You would hold down the fn key, then press the key labeled with the desired secondary function, and let go of both keys.

Cannot use letters of my laptop unless use fn key but not capital


You need to press the NumLock key to get the keyboard to get back to alphanumeric - it has a symbol of a lock with a number 1 on it. A LED should also go out/icon in your tool tray should disappear as well.
