I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

My keyboard wont print my numbers on the right side one - ten tell me how to get it to print my numbers


By the "right side one"I am assuming you mean the number pad on the keyboard? Tap the Num Lock key once and see if that corrects the issue. Another unlikely but still possible solution is the region settings could be mis-set making your computer think it has a different keyboard layout.

Is there a light that should come on when I press the num lock button? I can't tell if the number lock is on???


It depends on the keyboard model. Some have a number lock indicator light. There is no standard for location, either. The most common place for Caps lock, number lock, etc. on a desktop keyboard is behind the number key pad. However, some keyboards put the caps lock indicator right in the Caps lock key. There's probably at least one model that does the same for number lock. Many laptop models have no indicator, or a tiny one set somewhere in back bezel.

Some operating systems and applications have an option for displaying the status in the menu bar. If you can't find the number lock status indicator, you may have to resort to observing the behavior of the system when you hit a key on the number pad. If number lock is off, the even numbers (not including 0) will be arrow keys and the odd numbers will be page navigation keys.

My number pad on my keyboard is not working, how can I reactivate it?


At the top, left corner of the number pad, there should be a key that says "Num Lock." This key toggles the functionality of the number pad keys between Numbers and Directions.

Press Num Lock once and the numbers should start working again.

Press it again, and the keys should go back to the Directions (up, down, left, right, Page Up, etc.)

Good luck!

Where is the Fn key an a dell keyboard?


This is a simple problem, due to the size of laptops, the manufacturers cannot fit on a normal number pad as on a standard keyboard, so what they do is use a function key to turn a portion of the keyboard in to the number pad.
to get rid of this you need turn the 'number lock' off this may be a single key or a combination.
for my laptop its:
press together; the function key (normally 'Fn' bottom left) and the number lock key (Num Lock).
hope this sorts out the problem.

Key pad doe not work


This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys.  Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk.  Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off.  Your keyboard should now work normally.  
Any more problems, let me know!
