If i'm not mistaken (with the information you have provided), you may have toggled on the numeric keypad. look at the sides and tops of the keys for num lock or similiar. it is usually a combination of that key and the control key that will toggle it off

    Thankyou so much . Even called Dell support and their solution was to create a different user account. Since the 9 lock key was on I couldn't type anything. Everything was a combination of letters and numbers.

    As you suggested I pressed CTRL and bunch of buttons - i think I pressed it with the '9' key and whaddya know. It worked. THANKS even though u may not see this response.

How do i lock and un lock my hp compaq 6220 lap top my cat keeps jumping on the key pad


Hi,
There is no lock for the key pad, all you need is another USB key pad to deactivate the on board keypad.
The cheapest way is a "rolled newspaper", use that to bash that annoying cat!

Hope that helps you out!

What do the lighted icons stand for at the top of the keyboard? One looks like a locked padlock with a 9 in it. What does it mean?


That is your number lock key is turned on, which means that your 9 key keypad is ready to use. If you press the number lock key on your keyboard the light will go away but your 9 key numeric keyboard won't work until you press the number lock key again.

I don't have a lap top but a PC and when I type anything it comes up with numbers instead of letters. I don't have a fn key so what do I do?


Hi.

You have your Number Lock on. Look in at the top right of the keyboard for a key which says Num Lock on it and press that key. That will remove the Number Lock and you will be able to type letters as normal.



Regards.
