It sounds like you may have turned on the calculator function - Does one of your F keys have a light on - F10 or F11, if so Press Fn and the key that is lit up.

    You replied in the right place :-)

    Yes, if the calculator is on, the Function key for keyboard will light up. You can turn this on in the same way as Caps lock.

    At the bottom of the Function key is a picture of a calculator. A square with dotted circles - It may be a F10 or F11, and the light will appear at the top or bottom of the this key? When you press Fn and the F10 or F11 key that is lit up, the light will turn off?

Make lower case letters upper case


Shift for one letter, Caps lock for all caps. Lower right and left of keyboard on most computers.

On I phone, there is an arrow on the lower left - tap once, it will turn dark, and will cap one letter. Double tap, and it will use all caps, until you release by tapping again.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

My cap lock will not let me type in lower case letters and every letter that I must hit twice will stop after my first letter befor I can go on the same with foward and back spacing


You might have enabled the Windows "Accessibility" features, i.e., instead of pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE at the *SAME* time, you can press CTRL, release it, press ALT, release IT, press DELETE, release it, to emulate the three-finger salute.

Reboot your computer, to start without the "Accessibility" feature active.

Also, try a different keyboard.
And try the keyboard in a different computer.

On certain of the letter keys on the keyboard when you press them it types a number. on those letter keys there is a number in the upper right corner. how can you type the leteter. thank you


Is the number in the upper right corner a different color? There might be a key you can press that changes those letters from the letter on the key to the number on the key.

Cant type upper case letters


If your caps lock is not working, a best alternative would be to hold down the shift key while pressing a letter and it will convert lower case to upper case.

Sounds like a new keyboard may be in the future for you.
