Question about Acer Aspire 9500 Notebook

1 Answer

Numeric pad stop responding with numerals, off arrows and PgDn, PguUp OK

With the NumLock ON, the figures would not work. With NumLock OFF the keys are working fine.
Checked the empowering technology, checked WinXP, checked Registry (all settings OK) .
It just found it out one day. Is it possible that I triggered a hot key - working with insufficient light - not being aware of it?

I have a gateway laptop running windows 8 and all of a sudden my number pad stopped working. I've searched and read till my eyes feel like they're going to fall out, help!!


Have you pressed/un-pressed the NUMLOCK key?

OR

You may have a stuck key somewhere on your 10-key numeric keyboard. Sometimes dirt (coffee, dust, soda) is blocking the contacts to the circuit board from the keyboard.

How do I turn on numlock (to use an external usb number pad) on my Lenovo S405?


Did the external keyboard come with instructions to install drivers? Some keyboards will work without them, but others need additional drivers.

What is nulock key?


I'm guessing you mean the "Numlock" key. It's located in the upper left corner of your numbers pad on the right of your keyboard and when it's on, it locks your numeric keypad into "Numbers Only" mode. Otherwise those keys will become disabled or become the alternate keys listed underneath the numbers (ie; up/down arrows, home, end, etc.). There is a setting in your BIOS (system setup at boot) to always have the Numlock key set to "ON" when your PC boots up.

I NEED A MANUAL TO SHOW HOW TO GET MULTIFUNCTION KEYS TO WORK. FOR EXAMPLE HOW DO I GET THE ALTERNATE USE OF THE "NUMERIC 6 "KEY ie THE" QUESTION MARK" FUNCTION


You must have a different keyboard selected other than the standard US keyboard My numeral 6 has ^ on it and the numeric keypad 6 has a right arrow. One generally uses the SHIFT key to access symbols that are written above the main alpha or numeric key. The numeric keypad on side of PC has a button labeled key marked NUMLOCK that is engaged to allow use of the numerals as a calculator or to also be inserted into text.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.
