My numbers aren't working and my num loc is on

I accidentally held my fingers too long on a key and i got a toggle message (which I didn't read) and just hit cancel. Now my numbers aren't working...the arrow keys are, page up, page down etc. How do I get it back in the numerical keypad mode?

    I can't type numbers using HP keyboard number pad. I don't have lights to show me NUM LOCK. It just makes two different noises - won't work no matter how many times I press it. I don't have a button that just says Fn. They all have Fn and a number.

How to print numbers


A manual for such a machine (you don't have a specific model) can be found here (
http://download.dymo.com/dymo/user-guides/LetraTag/LT100H/UG/LT100H_UserGuide_en-US.pdf ) There is a Num Lock key (a padlock outline and '1 2 3' ) on the key. There are keys that have auxiliary numbers beside them. Toggle on the num lock key and then try pressing the key with the number beside it. Should work now :-)

Good Luck!

Jusy bought a Lenovo Y50. I cant seem to type numbers using the numpad keys (home, page up, etc works when Numlock is toggled). Any advice would be appreciated.


You have to have NUMBERLOCK ON to use the number pad .if you don't want to use the number lock key all the time you can go into the bios and change the setting for numberlock , then your pc will boot with number lock on all the time.

How do I get the number lock off


You didn't provide a model # etc. so I'll keep it general. Usually the number lock (NUM LK) is combined with another key, so you need to use the function (FN) key to toggle it on or off. It's usually on the upper right-hand corner of the keyboard, if that helps.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

How to use number keyboard


You use the number pad as follows: your index middle and ring finger rest on the 4, 5, and 6 keys. The index finger reaches up or down to use the 7, 4, 1 keys. The middle finger uses the 8, 5, 2 keys. And the ring finger uses the 9, 6, 3 keys. And the thumb is for the 0.

My number pad on my keyboard is not working, how can I reactivate it?


At the top, left corner of the number pad, there should be a key that says "Num Lock." This key toggles the functionality of the number pad keys between Numbers and Directions.

Press Num Lock once and the numbers should start working again.

Press it again, and the keys should go back to the Directions (up, down, left, right, Page Up, etc.)

Good luck!

The keyboard on my laptop has numbers and keys on it


Hi,
It sounds like the Num Lock is on.

Depending on the make of the laptop there is a few different ways to turn it off.
Either just hit the Num Lock key and see if it goes off, hold down Fn and hit the Num Lock key or hold down the shift key and hit the Num Lock key.



Regards.

I HELD A KEY DOWN TOO LONG A MESSAGE SAID TO DO SOMETHING I MISUNDERSTOOD AND PRESSED OK NOW I HAVE TO HOLD EACH KEY DOWN A LONG TIME TO TYPE


I think you have held down the num lock keys for over 5 seconds and have activated the toggle keys, try control panel..ease of access centre ..make the keyboard easier to use..you will be able to do your keyboard settings from there

Still cannot get my computer to change from numbers pad to letters on my laptop [email protected]


Your PC appears to be stuck in "Num Lock" mode. Depending on your model, you should be able to toggle this mode with the "Num Lock" key. Once it is out of this mode, the letters keys should work.
