Hi,
Try turning the Num Lock off, the key is located at the top right of the keyboard and sometimes you have to hold the shift key down while you hit the Num Lock key.
The keyboard should now return to normal.



Good luck

    Hi again,
    Yes the Num Lock is on!!! you have to turn it off, try pressing num lock on its own and type, if that does not work hold shift down and hit num lock, if not that try holding Ctrl and press num lock or Fn and num lock.

SOURCE: my keyboard keeps typing numbers where there is

hey there, I am not sure what kind of keyboard you have but try pushing the "fn" button or press "fn" and num lock at the same time or just num lock by itself. If you don't have num lock, you may need to plug in an external keyboard. let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: On my laptop alphabet keys uiojkl and m have

please check for a the ( Fn) key which is found next to the left side ctrl marked by a blue colour. cleck to see if this is jammed as only by holding the fn key down will the alphabets change to numerical. If the fault is persisting again open your keyboards settings and check for default settings. Also try to reinstall the drivers or else restore you computer to an earlier good restore point by clicking on control panel, select back up /restore. I hope this clears your fault. Good day.

Some key on the keyboard are typing numbers instead of letters what should i do please?


Hi,

You might have accidentally activated the "Numlock" key on your keyboard. Just press the Numlock and it should type in letters instead of numbers.

If press just the Numlock key will not work, try the combination which is CTRL and Numlock simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

Typing numbers instead of letters


Sounds like you may just have your numlock on. Just press function key plus F6 (on a macboook) and the numlock is off. If not you may have a broken keyboard. You can try to replace the keyboard yourself using an Apple Tablet Repair Guide or send it to a third party service Apple Tablet Repair.

Hi, I've got 2 eeepcs, with identical problems,


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 Fn key plus and probably the Scroll keys, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

Simply change my keyboard from typing numbers instead of letters..I.e. I'm trying to type yonkers and it gives me y6...I know it is a simple F6 or F2 function but I forget. Its been a while since I u


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.
