On my laptop in green are symbols and numbers, for example letter L has a green 3, when I try to type a word with the letter L a 3 appears, how do I change this? At the moment I have my old keyboard...


if you press the L key and the number 3 comes up. you likely have the num lock on.

is different for every computer but usually you can deactivate the num lock by pressing 2 keys at the same time.
the fist key is usually the key labeled (Fn) and the other key is usually a function key (the ones with F an a number), the way to find which is the other key is to look at the keyboard and try to find one that has a simble that looks like a tiny numerical key-pad
press both keys and a light that signals that the num lock is on should go off. at that point you should have your l and any other letters again typeable.

good luck

When I type a letter I i get 5 or 6 not the letter??


You've probably got number lock activated / deactivated. This is especially common if you're using a laptop computer. Look for the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard and try pressing it. If you're using a laptop and the Num Lock button is a different color, you might need to hold another key "Fn", Shift, Cntrl, etc while pressing "Num Lock".

Cant find the number lock key on my acer 6920 laptop


I think for your laptop the number lock key is a second function... Try holding down the function (Fn) key and pressing the F11 key, hopefully that will turn your number lock on/off.

Hi i have an acer laptop and some of my keys have numbers in the top right hand corner, when i try and type the numbers appear instead of letters and i cant seem 2 change it


you need to turn off the num lock feature. do so by pressing and holding down the FN key then pressing the numlk key just once.

to turn it back on just repet the step above.
