I have HP 510 note book. some keys, e.g. U, I, O, P, K etc are stuck in numbers. i cannot write a sentence. what should i do to make it function normally?

On the bottom left of your keyboard you should find a key marked Fn. On the top right of your keyboard you should find a key marked Num LK. While pressing the Fn key, press the Num LK key once. this should unlock the number keys and allow you to type letters again.

Good luck ;)

No OS stated, is this windows or linux or freedos.?
This PC came with VISTA in the USA< is it still vista? or slammed with some other alien OS. (not using HP install media)

windows WHAT, must we beg ?
Testing 1,2,3, simple as falling off a log. really.
ok try something more useful
find any usb keyboard,real and plug it in (barrow one?)

does that work?. if yes, good, if not the OS is corrupted.
(know that corruption has endless possibles) ask.

try a real keyboard, all USB work on your LAPTOP
if that fails, then your OS is corrupted,
if that works, the USB key board, then your internal keyboard is bad, time for a new one, for sure.

Be Backed up first your DATA backed up 1st !

power on button
then quickly hammer the F11 key,
this is the HP magic F11 recovery key.
then do a full recover.
if you PC was slammed with MS disks , F11 is now dead forever.

I cant undo the fn key on the mini note

You should be able to turn off the built in numeric keypad by pressing the fn key and the num lk simultaneously. The num lk is directly above the +/= key. If after doing this you still find you only momentarily turn off the numeric keyboard then there is another underlying issue. At that point you should take your unit to your area HP repair center.

Some letters can't be typed

You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
