Re: Vaio keyboard weirdness

Sir refer to you manual.. if i'm not mistaken the most laptops have integrated the numeric keypads with the alpha keypads... depending on what your laptop is there is a button that you will press toggle with the two functions... its just like the caps lock key that you will press to get all caps...

rate me if this helps...

How to turn on numlk for gateway NE56R31u

You may have hit a certain combination of keys on your Gateway laptop and turned on the NumLock function accidentally. The result is that the rectangle of keys from the 7 key down to the question mark key have become a number-entry keypad. Worse, Gateway manuals don't discuss this function.

Hold down the "Fn" key on the bottom row of the keyboard, and press the "NumLk" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F11" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the F11 key and "Scroll Lk" key simultaneously. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "F9" key. Type the letters UIO. If they come out as numbers, move on to the next step. Hold down the "Fn" key and press the "Scroll Lk" key. Type the letters UIO. They should come up as letters. If none of these help, then it's probably a keyboard malfunction and you'll need to get it repaired.

Cant get the at button to work even by pressing shift or not,every other key function works.

You may have a bad key, or a key with something under it.
Try this:

Turn the netbook upside down so that the keysj face the floor.
Bang on the back side that way you would to burp a baby.
Then, take a vacuum cleaner and **** out the spaces between the keys.
If this doesn't work, you may have to make an @ symbol manually by using the ALT key. (ALT plus 64). This should work in most Word Processing programs.
  1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
  2. Depress the Alt key.
  3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
  4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.
  5. On a laptop computer, there usually is no numeric keypad. So, instead, depress the Fn (function) key, then the Alt key, then the numerical code sequence. The numbers are on the fronts of certain keyboard keys: M=0, J=1, K=2, L=3, U=4, I=5, O=6, 7=7, 8=8, and 9=9.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type

It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

Keyboard letters 'm,j,k,l,u,i,o' permanantly locked for numerals. i have no idea how i switched this function on.

NumLock is on. Look for the Fn key in the lower left corner, and lookint in the top right, the NumLock key.
