19 key Numeric keypad with 2 usb ports

I have plugged in the keypad to my laptop using the usb port. When I hit the numbers key while in MS Word Doc I don't see any keys apear on my screen however if I hit the minus, plus, *, etc. buttons those will register. I found that if i press and hold down the . and type the numbers will appear on the screen. Can you tell me how 2 get it off this setting? I enter payroll on my lap top and felt it would be easier and faster if I had this numeric key pad however this setting is not working for me.

    1237890 all work on this external keypad. 456 and 000 don't. Neither does the enter key. The odd thing is that yesterday all the numbers worked (enter still didn't). And the first time I plugged it in today, 456 worked, but 123 didn't. Any ideas why? Thank you!

You better consult your hardware manual.

If there is no manual Try checking your regional language selection in control panel. Check your MS word configuration go to: Tools > Options Check your settings for keyboard or input device.

Hold down the "Fn" blue key on your keyboard and the "F4" key at the same time. My "Fn" (function) key is next to the Ctrl key at the lower left hand side of my laptop keyboard. This will put numlocks on your keyboard. This is different than the numlock on the 10 key. Tha needs to be on as well. This made the Targus 10 key work for me. It's pluged into a USB port in my laptop. I hope this helps.

How to connect belkin numeric keypad to iMac

Plug it in to a USB port.

If the particular keypad does not have a USB connector, there are adapters from PS2, serial, and ADB to USB available.

If the device is so old that it needs adaptation to USB, you might find that the original driver software no longer works. In that case, I highly recommend USB Overdrive ( 1999 2014 Alessandro Levi Montalcini as a sane way to manage USB input devices.

Work with an external numeric keyboard

I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

Keyboard letters 'm,j,k,l,u,i,o' permanantly locked for numerals. i have no idea how i switched this function on.

NumLock is on. Look for the Fn key in the lower left corner, and lookint in the top right, the NumLock key.

Lock 9 light is on

The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, hold down <Fn> and press the desired key.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
