Unlock number lock


On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.

Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.

Oh yes, I have had this happen before and it sucks.

This problem is usually just due to having Num lock on. Try pressing the num lock button on your keyboard and see if this makes a difference. In the smaller notebooks and netbooks they combine the numbers and letters onto the same keys using num lock to distinguish the mode.

I think on your model the num lock button will be towards the top right of the keyboard. You may also have to press the FN (function) button at the same time, but I am not sure.

Also there should be a small led that illuminates or goes dark to inform you when num lock/scroll lock/caps lock are enabled/disabled.

My keyboard is typing numbers and characters instead of letters!


Hello,

Sounds like you have num lock on. The Num lock key is usually the same as Scrlk but to select the Num lock you have to press and hold Shift then press NumLk/ScrLk. A light should light up to indicate the keypad is on/off.

Numbers appear w7hen i type certain words 7how do i solve t7his


Hi,

You probably have the Num Lock on. The letters affected by the Num Lock are u, i, o,j,k,k,l,m.

The Num Lock should be located at the top right of the keyboard and is usually in blue letters although with some keyboards its lettered white. Hit the Num Lock key and that should resolve the issue for you.


Regards.

Check caps lock, if your on a laptop make sure num lock is off hit num lock and try again, num lock will incorporate numbers with the letters because there is no 10 key keypad on most laptops. Also check that shift key is not stuck tap each shift key twice then try again.

When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Shift key plus the ScrLk (Scroll lock) key, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
