Question about HP Pavilion DV9920US Laptop

1 Answer

The num lock key controls letters on regular keyboard.

When the "num lock" is on, the letters: uiop, jkl;, & nm, will only type numbers. i.e. "j" types "1". "k" types "2". This stated happening after HP sent me a recover disk set and I had to "redo" my notebook computer. How can I use the num lock key and have it NOT affect my letters on keyboard? Thanks, Naomi

    I've NEVER owened a computer that I had to leave the Num Lock "OFF" in order to use the letters on the keyboard!!!

    I have a new HP laptop. I have a Compac laptop. I also own a HP desktop. In my lifetime I've owned around 8-9 computers and NEVER experienced this problem. My laptop is 17" & has a number keypad to the right side just as a regular keyboard. I NEED to use the num loc AND type letters in order to use Excel and other such programs. Thanks, nomes5

Let Number key stay off then you could use normal 1234567890 that is between QWERTYUIOP and F1-F12

When i type the letters on my keyboard, the numbers show up instead. i don't know how to revert the system or functions back to normal. i must've accidentally pressed a button to change the characters when...


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.

Not working as key board button like as below 7890 uiop jkl m


Some where along the line, you have pressed the Fn Nd one of the Fx keys the transforms the keyboard into a number pad. If you look at your keyboard closely, you'll see that some keys have letters and numbers on them. usually on the right of the keyboard. One of the function keys( F keys) is responsible. If you hold the Fn key and tap that key, things should return to normal.

Function key plus number pad doesnt work. numpad is supposed to be fn key plus the four rows of 7890 uiop jkl; m,./ if NumLock is off, the +-*/ work, but not the numbers. the numbers behave as...


A numpad usually outputs the cursor movements with the shift bar depressed. That suggests to me that you need to turn of the Caps lock key, or otherwise make a change to the keyboard setup. Maybe there's a Fn key combo that needs to be toggled.

Keyboard acts like a keypad


Sounds like your Nom Lock button is on! It turns 7890 uio jkl m,. to numpad. You can just switch it off with num lock button top right on keyboard.

Best wishes,

Laptop keyboard on lifebook c, replace or fix


It looks like you answered your own question - you really can't fix a laptop keyboard, but you can replace them. (or you can use an external keyboard)

Now is your problem:?
Letters qwert, asdfg, zxcvbn work OK but uiop displays as 456/ jkl displays as 123 and m displays as 0. Other keys also do not display correctly. Or holding the function key down at the same time as the problem keys ?

Then the solution is:
The problem was caused by accidentally pressing the num lock key. Once pressed, it remains locked even after a reboot. Pressing again returns the keyboard to normal.

You have the wrong keyboard setup. make sure your keyboard is setup as USA. In saying this though it maybe faulty... try another one? see if problem stays same if so, then it is ya keyboard "language" set it to US as said B4.
