What make and model is it? If this is a standalone keyboard, change it out.

SOURCE: Keyboard Produces Numbers Instead of Letters

I have the same problem. Click the Windows start button. At the bottom is a Windows Serach box. Type 'keyboard'. A virtual keyboard appears. Click the NumLock key on the Virtual Keyboard. This should override the issue you are having and your keyboard and keys should now work. Otherwise reboot!

SOURCE: A few days ago when I was on the the laptop

The Function keys up top will not do anything when not in a program that has them set.

The num lock key on most laptops does not itself work: it must be pressed in conjunction with another key. This is normally the "FN" key at the lower left.

Please try pressing the "FN" key while you press the "num lock" key and see if this now works.

My dell inspiron 2400 pc will not start up


If the power light doesn't come on at all, it could be the power supply is dead, or the power switch is defective.

Check to make sure the power cord and power supply cables are securely connected.

Here are some diagnostic tools for DELL computers.

Lg w2753v monitor shuts off


Make sure the power cable is firmly plugged into the monitor and into the wall. If so, you may have either a marginal power-supply to the monitor or the monitor electronics may be failing.

If there is a power-brick (adapter) on the power cord for the monitor, make sure the wires going in-to and out-of that are not loose or damaged. Consider a new power cord before condemning the monitor.

Probably one of the lock switches, the switch you push or toggle from inside the car to lock or unlock your doors has shorted. Try manipulating those switches until the clicking stops. Replace the effected switch. If the doors automatically lock when the car begins moving above a certain speed, it could be that relay has shorted.

My computer i in sleep mode


Sounds like it is locked up. There should be a power switch on the back. Switch it off, leave it off for a few minutes, then turn the back power switch on again and push the front power switch. If no rear switch, pull the plug. Windows doesn't like hard power downs, but if your system won't recognize the keystrokes or mouse movement, tere is nothing else you can do.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

I shut my computer down at night, but can't get on Internet next


There is no reason to shut down either the router or modem. My router and modem has power 24/7 with no issues for many years. Just leave them powered.
