SOURCE: num lock activated and can't turn it off

One of your Function keys (F11, F12, etc., usually F11) will also have the NumLock function on them. So when you hold Fn and press F11, it will toggle the Number Lock. Try holding Fn and press F11, this should turn it off (and back on should you ever want to use it again). Your keyboard should be labeled with the various functions keys have when Fn is pressed, you may have to look for the one that reads NumLk.

SOURCE: Computer is locked in the green symbols of the keyboard

TO SHUT OFF the green keys, you need to disable the multiligual or French keyboard layouts. For Windows 7:

Click CONTROL PANEL
click CLOCK, LANGUAGE, AND REGION

under REGION AND LANGUAGE
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS... etc.

click KEYBOARDS AND LANGUAGES
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS

.......for example, by clicking on a keyboard name (ie. US or and UNITED KINGDOM for example) and then clicking PROPERTIES to the rtight, you can see the actual key layout.......

On the list of installed languages, click anything multiligual or French, and then click REMOVE found on the right-hand column

click APPLY
click OK
Then you've removed the French.

Otherwise you have to click the LEFT ALT key and then the LEFT SHIFT key to swich back and forth between the green keys and the white keys.

Disable num lock


Deskop or Laptop seems to be a contradiction >????

The num lock (number or numeric lock) can become annoying if you tend to accidentally hit the num lock key on your laptop and turn it on or off.
Disabling the num lock completely involves editing the system registry.
Before performing such edits, always save and back up your computer information in case you make a mistake, as the system registry controls many aspects of your computer's operation.
Once you have disabled the num lock on your laptop, you must edit the system registry again to re-enable that function.

Close all windows and programs that are running on your computer.
Press the "Windows" key and the "R" key simultaneously to open the "Run" dialog box.

Type "regedit" without the quotation marks, then press "Enter."
Click the "+" symbol next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then select the "+" symbol next to "Control Panel."
Click on "Keyboard."
Double-click "IntitialKeyboardIndicators."
Enter "0" (the number zero) in the "Value Data" field to disable the num lock after logon, or enter "1" (the number one) to disable the num lock entirely.
Click "OK," then close the registry by clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the registry window.
Restart your computer.
To re-enable num lock, follow the same process, but change the "Value Data" to "2."

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]


Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

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).

sgoldberg08_2.jpg

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!

CAPs lock key is on al the time


When you start your PC, Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock don’t automatically toggle on. You can automatically turn each of them on or off whenever your PC starts, for all accounts on the PC. As a practical matter, most people probably want to have only Num Lock automatically turned on, but this Registry hack gives you the power to force any combination of keys on or off.

Start>Run then type in "regedit" whithout quotes.
ab41d8e.jpg
HKEY_USERS.DefaultControl PanelKeyboard.
3eaaaca.jpg Find the String value
InitialKeyboardIndicators. By default, it is set to 0, which means that Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock are all turned off. Set it to any of the following values, depending on the combination of keys you want turned on or off:
0 Turns off Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock
1 Turns on Caps Lock
2 Turns on Num Lock
3 Turns on Caps Lock and Num Lock
4 Turns on Scroll Lock
5 Turns on Caps Lock and Scroll Lock
6 Turns on Num Lock and Scroll Lock
7 Turns on Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock
Exit the Registry. When you restart, the new setting will take effect.

Note: You have problem with Caps Lock so just modify Caps lock option on Regedit.
And do not forget to run virus scan on your computer once you are done.

Rate always the all answers.

Thank you

When i turn my computer on i always have to turn on the num lock. i think my num lock should stay on even though i restart my computer.


How to get Registry cleaner.
Windows XP
Click START>RUN
Type regedit
Click ok

Windows Vista
Click Start and type regedit on your keyboard HIT ENTER.

Than:

you can turn on num lock by changing "HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Control Panel, Keyboard, InitialKeyboardIndicators" to "2"

OR if that single registry entry doesn't solve your problem than go for this.

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyBoardIndicators

Somehow I have locked the keys.


Turn the key? :-) No, seriously not sure what you mean by locking the keys. Did you restart your computer? Have you tried the keyboard on another computer. Check the status of the Num-Lock, Scroll-Lock, Caps-Lock, or F-Lock. Hope this helps.

Keyboard


Can you please clarify this
  1. Do you keys not respond at all
  2. Do you get numbers when you want letters or otherwise letters to numbers
  3. Or does it respond only in one mode numbers only or letters only
My suggestions
  1. If its situation 1 then try reastarting your machine, and unblocking the num lock and vice versa
  2. If its situation 2 just try unblocking num and blocking back by turning on or off the num lock, its just num lock or FN + Num lock in some PC
  3. If its situation 3 just restart your computer.
