Borrow a similar keyboard and see if it works, try your keyboard on another machine. That will clue you as to where the problem is.

SOURCE: My keyboard isn't typing most keys

I would reset the bios by using the jumper in the cabinet. Then make sure you have the correct type of keyboard selected and if all of that does not solve the issue, replace the keyboard.

  1. Click Start c01311982.gif , and type region into the Start Search field.
  2. Select the Keyboards and Languages tab.
  3. Click Change Keyboards .
    A Text Services and Input Languages window opens.

  5. Select the keyboard(s) you want to use and click OK .
    Figure 5: Add input language: US Dvorak keyboard selected.

    The new keyboard is added to the list of available keyboards and a keyboard icon appears on the system tray, allowing you to switch between the keyboard that you want to use with the mouse.

  6. From the Text Services and Input Languages window, select the new keyboard in the list and click Move up until it is first in the list. This makes it the default keyboard.

  7. Click OK . You can now use the new keyboard. If you find that the new keyboard works well and you do not want to use the other keyboard, repeat these steps and Remove the keyboard that you do not want from the General tab of the Text Services and Input Languages window.

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.

My wipro laptop keyboard keys are mixed up.if i press j 1 is displayed.its very difficult to type thrugh gon screen keyboard.plz help me.


You've got num lock on. To verify that, look for a Num Lock LED that is lit, should be near the screen on the keyboard side of the laptop. Often marked [1] or NumLock.
Simple fix, find the num lock key (or combination) and press it. If that doesn't work and the numlock LED is lit no matter what you press then you have a screwed up keyboard.

Your BIOS might be set to do this when the PC turns on. To fix that, look in BIOS setup for an option called "Boot Up NumLock" and turn it off.

I can't type anything on my keyboard. How do you


I donot think there is a lock key on the keyboard only if you have special one, there is only Num lock which lock only the numbers, but make sure your cable is plugged well from the computer side, disconnect and connected again, restart the computer and try again. it should work.

Thanks for using Fixya

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

Fn key active


This is not because Fn key its Num Lock key that changes jkl to 123. Just turn Num Lock button off.

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

Keyboard


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.
