Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

The keyboard is locked. Instead of letters, it gives me numbers


Click Fn+Numlk as this switches your keyboard to the numbers printed in blue. Pressing that combination again, puts the keyboard back to normal. The Fn key will switch the function keys to the designated lower operation, so your F11 key has the NumLk operation controlled by the Fn key

On my keyboard I have white and blue letters. When I type, the blue letters come up instead of the white ones that I want. To get the white letters, I have to press the blue Fn key. How do I reset the...


Sounds like you're stuck in number lock.
Press Fn and F11 at the same time. That's function and F11.
I'm pretty sure that'll do the trick, as long as the blue portion of the F11 key reads "NmLk" or something like that.
If this doesn't work, let me know and we'll try something else.

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key


HI,
If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps
THANK YOU

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.


Hi,
Your number lock is on, look on the top right of the keyboard for a key marked "Num Lock" (can sometimes be coloured blue), hit that key once and your keyboard will return to normal.

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
