Question about Gateway MX6124 Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway MX6124 laptop: some keys on the right side of the keyboard display numbers instead of letters. Keys involved and actual display are: Row Starting with q: u=4, i=5, o=6, p=*, Row Starting with a: j=1, k=2, l=3, ;=-, Row starting with z: m=0. The shift key does not capitalize but brings up these Characters: Row starting with q: u=Back Arrow, i=nothing, o=Forward Arrow, p=*, Row Starting with a: j=nothing, k=down arrow, l=bottom or page down ;=-, and Row starting with z: m=nothing. All other keys work correctly. Never spilled anything on it. No reason keyboard acted up. I?ve replaced the key board with a new one with no changes.

Your computer is in keypad mode. To check, turn off your Num Lock. On my system that disables the embedded keypad. To fix, go into setup (usually F1, F2 or delete when booting). Somewhere you should find a setting for using the embedded keypad. Mine has two options, Fn Key Only and By Num Lock. Yours may be different. One activates the embedded keypad, which you are seeing. Try the other setting.

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.

Left side of keyboard 123456789 is not working


Do you mean the right side of the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters?
If so, you have enabled the NumLk which turns the RHS of the keyboard into the number pad.
Press the NumLk key near F11, F12 function key and the NumLk LED will switch off and return your RH keys back to letters.

Letters are typing as numbers


one of the F keys turns certain keys on the right side to number keys, so it can act like a full size keyboard with the 10 key panel on the right.. Look carefully at the F keys to determine which one it is. Or consult the manual.

External keyboard messing up Gateway settings


You have to unlock the FN key on your keyboard. It seems to be locked in place. I had the same problem and resolved it by looking for a "num lock" , "function lock" or actual blue image of a lock on the keys. Mine is located under the "Scroll" button. Press this along with the FN and your keyboard should go back to normal

I was cleaning the keyboard on my Gateway model mx6124 and pressed a combination that rotated my display 90 degrees. How do I turn it back?


Not a key combo--it's a display properties setting. Look for an icon for your
video card
in the lower right corner Notification Area. Right click on it to
adjust. If you don't have the icon, go to Display Properties, Settings,
Advanced, Rotation.
Or try control-alt and one of the arrow keys at the same time.
