Pressing the CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK there is a beep.

launch the Toggle Keys dialog box by holding down the Num Lock button for five seconds, and clicking Yes. Thereafter, a loud beep will sound through your computer's speakers whenever Caps Lock is turned on or off. (To turn Toggle Keys off, once again hold down your Num Lock button for five seconds.)

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]

Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

Number pad does not work

  1. Find Alt code.

    Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.

  2. Enable Num Lk.

    You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.

  3. Hold down "Alt" key.

    Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.

  4. Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.

    Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.

  5. Release all the keys.

    After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.

Hello! i was just wondering how i can turn my num lock off? each time i try to add anything half way through a completed sentence, it writes over the preceding letter. really frustrating! I have a Toshiba...

To turn the numb lock off you can just tap the "num lock" button, which is normally located on the right side of the laptop. However, i haven't looked at your laptop, so you may also have to press the key "FN" along with "Num Lock" to get it to turn off.

I, K, "," are locked on my Toshiba Protege 4005, I think, or just not functioning. How do I unlock?

These keys are on the same column to the right of the keyboard, so it may be a num lock issue. Try toggling num lock on your keyboard to see if there is any difference. You can do this, usually, by holding the Fn key and pressing another key with the num lock label at the same time. The only other two things i can think of are dirt underneath this particular column of keys, or a fault in the keyboard itself (which usually warrants replacement)

Num Lock key must be off. I can't log in using my 4 digit code. How do I turn on the Num Lock key? It is not marked.

It is one of the function keys, it will have a keypad symbol on it.
On my Toshiba it is the F11 key.
Try the Fn key + F11 key to enable the numbers, press the combination of key again to turn off Num Lock
