Re: number pad

There is a Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard and a num lock key at the top right of the keyboard (depending on the model) Hold the Fn key and then press the num lock key, that should fix your problem.

Re: number pad

If you turn off numlock then your numpad will not work. That is what the numlock option is for.
With numlock off you have to use the number keys at top of keyboard above the qwerty letters.

The letter u key gives me the number 4, the i key gives me the number 5 the o gives me number 6, The last 3 to 4 letter keys gives me numbers

right first off im assuming this isn't a full size keyboard with the number pad on the right.

so when you have a laptop keyboard some characters share with others, in your case numb lock has been pressed and is replacing the letter u with 4

hope this helps

Certain letter keys give me numbers instead of the letter on my verbatim wireless keyboard and mouse

Sounds like NUMlock, or another function key like that. Are those numbers on the keys themselves? That's a common problem for laptop keyboards that do not have number pads.

My letter keyboard is showing numbers and not letter..please help. (advent laptop)

Laptops do not have as many keys as a normal keyboard so often they include the numbers over letter keys.
So, by mistake you pressed a ctrl or alt or [A] key that simply switches the keys from letters to numbers.
A light or indication must be ON on your laptop indicating that it's Numbers or Letters ON.

Find the key that changes the function and restore the function to letters.

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop keyboard is typing odd numbers and symbols instead of some of the lettters. Examples, the letter "l" comes out "3" . Other letters come out as a back slash, etc. A plug in USB...

Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

When I type, sometimes a key types a french letter with an accent. How do I get it back to the english version? Also, my number pad to the right of the main keyboard doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Make sure the NUM LOCK key is on. Your number key pad won't work if it's not on. As far as the French letters with accents, when the Enable indicator on taskbar check box is selected, and you have two or more languages installed, an indicator that represents the default language appears on the Windows taskbar. To switch between languages quickly, click the indicator, and then click the language you want to use. You can also use shortcut keys to switch between languages while you type. Select one of the switch languages options on the Language tab to set the shortcut keys.

When I have ''num lock'' on several of my letter character work as numbers too... how do I turn this off?

Are you using a labtop? If so, that's your problem. Since there is no number pad on most laptops, a section of the keyboard substitutes numbers for letters when numlock is on. Just keep numlock off.

Keyboard typing extra letters >.<

Sounds like the windows key is stuck down, pressing start+r opens run, start+e opens explorer etc. The start key being the one between control and alt.

Sounds like your keyboard is sticking

Unplug the keyboard and do the following

Look on the bottom you should see some screws, remove the screws and leaving the keys facing down, pop the two pieces apart.

Leaving the electronics aside you can now continue with the following instructions
Ok, once you have the two pieces, all of the keys should stay in there proper place, take and soak that in the sink with some soap and water.
Moving all the keys to get the water to flow through.
Then dry off the Keyboard and vacuum all the excess water off, then replace and screw back together, you should be good to go.

I wouldn't recommend a dishwasher, this could get to hot and melt the keys
