You probably have the NumLock on. You see, unlike desktop models, laptop keyboards don't have a seperate Numeric Keypad. Instead, when you switch on the Num Lock, part of the keyboard acts as the numeric keypad. So just switch off NumLock. (The button might be designated with no.1 and a padlock sign, near upper right area of the keyboard). You will have to do this everytime OS start. Probably it is set to switch on in your BIOS settings.

N Vista go to "Control Panel/Regional and Language Settings" and select the keyboard language Tab to choose language to suit your keyboard.

I think its "Control Panel/ Regional Settings" in XP. John

Why have ive lost the function to use the at key


Hi Diane Andrews

You stated as you have lost the @ function on your keyboard . And by looking at your DP i suppose its a laptop . Well then if so you might need to reset the keyboard layout settings for your laptop . Different OS has its different settings . You might have changed your language settings which may or might have caused it . Steps on how to its here . But if you have lost the @ key itself then ... you might need to get it change at your nearest computer repair shop or bring it to the vendor . Or maybe for time being you can use the on screen keyboard

CLick start - under the search - type On screen Keyboard and select it to use it .

Basic .. Fix an external keyboard and try if it works on that keyboard . If it does then your laptop keyboard might be at fault or need to change the settings .

Method 1 of 3: Changing the Language Settings (Windows)

If your keyboard is not displaying the correct characters when you press keys, your language settings may have gotten changed. If you have the incorrect region selected, your keyboard will act differently. To change it back, open the Control Panel.

You can access the Control Panel from the Start menu. Windows 8 users can right-click on the Windows button and select Control Panel from the menu

Open the Language settings. How you access this depends on which version of Windows you are using.

Windows 8 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Languages".

Windows Vista and 7 - If you are in Category mode, select "Change keyboards and other input methods" under the "Clock, Language, and Region" section. If you are in Icon mode, select "Region and Language" and then click the "Keyboards and Languages" tab. Click the Change keyboards... button.

Windows XP - select "Regional and Language Options", click the Languages tab, and then click Details..

Select your language. Use the menu to select the default input language you want to use. In Windows Vista and 7, select your preferred language from the "Default input language" drop-down menu. In Windows 8, move your preferred input language to the top of the list.

I am not able to work with my keyboard function keys and num keys and function keys . but the the touch pad key is onlyworking .please send a solution to unlock the keyboard. hp pavilion g6-2102tx


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.

I changed a keyboard and its not working right


Your Numlock is on

Your keyboard should have a Function button, it may be Fn, Func or similar. Usually on the lower left hand side of the keyboard.

So now you found the Function Button press it and the NumLock button and it should set your keyboard back to normal.

Good Luck :)

I have often deal damage keyboard, and type of damage keyboard so much. For damage your experience, a variety of ways have been tried, but the result always failed. The best solution is replace keyboard.

Based on experience, three times I fix keyboard, without having to replace with a new keyboard.

First type of damage
All keyboard keys are not functioning, or functioning left side, right side not working
Solution
Remove the keyboard, and cut keyboard cable.

Second type of damage
When laptop is powered on, the sound (tiiiiiiiiiiit) so hard. When we press a button, suddenly appeared equal. example;
I press "y", y appears =======================
I press enter, appear =======================
Solution
Press and release button ~ ` , do it
repeatedly, when turning on laptop until laptop access the operating system.
.

12_4_2011_4_57_25_pm.jpg

The result is
1. When laptop turned on, there was no sound. Laptop turns normal.
2. When I press buttons, does not appear equal to. So all buttons normal function
3. There are three buttons that do not function [ { , ] } , \ '


Third type of damage
When laptop is powered, it looks normal. After entering the desktop, buttons z, x, a, s, q, w, e, does not work. If another buttons is pressed, appear equal. example;
I press p, appear p=======================
Solution
Do not turn on laptop (about 3 weeks)
This solution does not make sense, there is no technical explanation, and this solution so strange.

The fact that I experienced
This case occurred on the Acer Aspire 4736z, OS Win XP Prof.
After laptop not turned on, more than 3 weeks, keyboard returns to normal. All buttons are functioning normally. I can not explain technically, but this case never happened.


Solutions for you
The best solution is replace keyboard.

I hope this information useful.

Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

Your keyboard logic chip is in need of therapy.

Replacement of keyboard warranted.

Now, I thought that it might be a redesignation of your language code, but that proved not to be the case.

Problems with laptop keyboard


Sounds like some of the keyboard settings have gotten changed. Begin by checking the System Parameters for Keyboard/Mice and verify that these are as follows:

Caps Lock = Caps Lock
Control Key = Control Key
Option Key = Option Key
Command = Command

If they are not, just press the RESTORE DEFAULTS setting and LOCK your Systems Parameter Page before closing it. Reboot your system and check keyboard operation.

Hope this helps,

Yes there should be a button on the keyboard. Make sure the keyboard is on (if there is a button/switch) and look for a button on the keyboard. If there wasn't then it would have to 100% of the time be looking for the receiver.

Insert or over-type feature


I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and it has a "F lock" key. This key has to be set on "Off" to let it know that I want to use the Print Screen function versus the Insert function on the same key. May be your keyboard is the same way.
