Usually you have to hold the "Fn" key to get to these. Look for a "NumLock" key to turn this off. You may need to use the "Fn" key to select numlock.

Some keys register different characters. For example the O registers the number 6 when it is typed.


This should be a simple fix, look at your keyboard, you should have a function key and if you look at the number pads above the top row of letters there should be either a numerical symbol or a key pad, your keyb board is simply using several keys as an extended numerical keypad. If you look closely at the letters there are small numbers on them. To fix hold down function key and pressing the keypad button. You can also try pressing the number lock.

Your keyboard is faulty - either due to a mechanical failure or spillage.

This is pictures of a different brand, however the premise is still the same...

An easy repair - remove the top trim bezel (just under the screen) this will allow access to 2-3 screws.

Remove the screws, and tilt the keyboard out.

Remove the ribbon cable.

Install reverse of removal.
