Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

Number key not working on laptop


If you are talking about the number symbols that are on keys U,I,O,P,J,K,L,M then notice what color the number symbols are on those keys. Normally they are blue or might have a square around them. That means you have to press and hold the key that is the same color or has the square around it on the left side of the keyboard. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left hand portion of the keyboard, then hit the key for the number you want. Notice that the FN function key will be the same color as the numbers. If it's not the FN function key then it will be the key that has the square around it like the numbers has.

The function key is always on, on the keyboard. How do I change it back to a normal keyboard?


Press the NumLk/ScrLk button at the top right corner. That will turn off the 9-key number and symbol buttons. The Function key dosn't get stuck, just the number lock key.

How do u use the @ symbol on the keyboard


The @ symbol and the number 2 key share the key.
To select the @ symbol - hold the SHIFT key and then press the number 2 key.
If you are not getting the @ symbol then most likely your keyboard was not or changes from the US keyboard.
If this is the case there would be other wrong symbols on your keyboard.

I had the same problem. When I pressed shift and that comma key I got a " instead of a @.

I looked to see what on the leyboard you normally press to get a " and that's the number 2 key.

Tried pressing shift and the 2 key and hey presto, I got a @.

So it looks like @ and " have swapped places.

So shift and 2 for a @!

Shift key problem


That means the symbol assigned for shift-2 is currently assigned to the top left character, likely the " symbol. Press shift-Fn to toggle between symbols until the @ symbol works.

Sounds like your contacts on your keyboard are dirty. Take some compressed air and blow it underneath your keyboard. Give it a good cleaning. See if that solves your problem.
