You can try to GENTLY pop/pry off the keys that do not work, and see if the rubber membrane, (it acts as the spring, when you press a key) is still there and in place, with power off and battery removed, try a q-tip with a LITTLE rubbing alcohol, and clean the area under the keys, replace the membrane, and pop the key back on and test. before I would buy a replacement keyboard, you may want to restore the PC to the factory settings,(ReInstall Windows, etc), and make sure its not a software/windows problem or if its a hardware/keyboard failure. if this helps please give a fixya rating thank you

Numerical keypad offset numlock on keyboard


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

Number and letter keys are stuck (type) together


This model has no numlock as it has no keypad. It looks like a faulty keyboard as the linked keys appear to be in the same column in the keyboard grid. You could try Fn+F11 as this solves certain other keyboard problems with symbols etc. Otherwise could be a new keyboard required.

How do i get the at sign for emails?


It depends on the keyboard. If your physical keyboard does not match the language set by the operating system, the wrong information will appear when you type certain keys.
For US English keyboards, @ is shift+2.
For UK keyboards, @ is shift+' (the key which is two steps to the right of the "L" key.)
For French "AZERTY" keyboards, @ is the right-Alt key and 0 (zero)
Ensure that your operating system is set to know which kind of keyboard you are using, who what you see matches the keys on the keyboard. For example, in Windows 7, this is Control Panel -> Region and Languages.

Certain letters/characters will not work.


Maybe: If it is a wireless keyboard....perhaps new batteries...but that is unlikely.  Usually when the letter buttons die in a group like that, the best thing for you is to bite the bullet and buy another keyboard.  Perhaps there was a spill on the keyboard...perhaps that particular group just gave out.  The good news is that keyboards are relatively cheap...and there is nothing quite like the feel of springy, new keys under your fingers.

Problem with keyboard replacement in IBM Thinkpad R52


The keyboard you purchased (39T0704) is a US English keyboard. Change your input local in your "Keyboard" "Control Panel" to "EN English (United States)" and all your keys should work. As far as getting the English keyboard to work in German or Polish is very unlikely.
