Question about Computers & Internet
I PRESSED NUM LK AND IT NOT WORKING
1. Please tap the NumLock key many times and see if it responds to the tap,
2. Probably your keyboard is in "Alt Fn" mode, so please try to hold the Fn key and tap the Fn key (I prefer to tap the left arrow and right arrow) and see if the keyboard is working properly.
3. Probably your keyboard is failed. It happens, even there is no spill accident. In this case, you need to replace the entire keyboard.

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

Your best bet is to get that keyboard replaced. for some reason the overlay underneath that key isn't responding properly whether its because its worn out or maybe somebody spilled water on the keyboard by accident. Intermittent keyboard problems only get worse over time.

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.

Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.
You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"]
keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at
the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.
Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.
Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.
After you release all the keys alt symbol should be
entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really
enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine
near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case
- try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt".
That just might work.
