Check to see if you have a num-lock key. It may be on, causing the numbers to appear instead of the letters. This just happened to me last night.

Good Luck and leave feedback if this is successful, because it affects my rating as an expert.

My keyboard is typing numbers and characters instead of letters!


Hello,

Sounds like you have num lock on. The Num lock key is usually the same as Scrlk but to select the Num lock you have to press and hold Shift then press NumLk/ScrLk. A light should light up to indicate the keypad is on/off.

Regards,

When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Shift key plus the ScrLk (Scroll lock) key, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Don't have user manual Get one?


Check to see if Num Lock is turned on. Depending on your computer, it may light up the key with a green light, or a green light may be lit near the part of the computer where the screen is connected to the computer.

The IBM laptop has a key on the top row on the right side.It has two functions. One function is the scroll lock on the bottom of the key.The other function is the numbers lock which is at the top of the key.To unlock the right side of the keyboard when numbers are coming up instead of letters, hold down the shift key and the numbers lock key and that will unlock it.

There is a num lock key. Press Fn Num Lock (I believe it is the scroll lock key on this particular keyboard).
