Certain keys not working


If its the keys toward the right side of the keyboard and they are typing numbers instead of letters, you just need to turn off num lock.
You can do this by pressing your num lock button (might be Fn + numlock) or by plugging in a USB keyboard and pressing numlock. You can also use the on screen keyboard to change the setting in windows.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful, or reply with more specific details about the issue (brand, model, version of Windows, etc). Thanks!

I seem to have pressed a button on my netbook that won't allow me to shift and use the @ symbol and ? symbol. not quite sure what button to press to get them back.


If pressing U I O P gets 4 5 6 * and pressing J K L gets 1 2 3 then what you had pressed was the NumLk key. There will also be an indicator for NumLk (or Lock symbol with 1 in the middle) that is on. To turn NumLk off, you need to press the NumLk key again. If NumLk on/off is shared with a function key, you will need to hold down the Fn key while pressing NumLk. On my keyboard, with the shift key held down and pressing the key with ? while NumLk is on gets + and pressing the key with the @ symbol on it while holding down the shift key gets @ regardless of NumLk being on or off.

Why my asus a3000 keyboard not function correctly when i push U I O P the function is number when i push this key


NumLk (Numbers Lock) has been turned on. Pushing U I O P results in 4 5 6 * and pushing J K L results in 1 2 3. NumLk allows a block of keys on the right side of the keyboard to function as a numeric keypad to facilitate easier entry of numbers or numeric related data. There is an indicator that will be on when NumLk is on. To turn NumLk off, you need to push the key that has NumLk on it. It may be combined with a function key in which case you will need to hold down the Fn key while pushing the NumLk. If you manage to push the right key(s), the NumLk indicator should turn off and the keyboard will revert back to its normal operation (without the numeric keypad).

Hello, My Samsung N150 has decided the following keys will act as a number pad (1-9). The only way to be able to input letters is if i hold down the FN at the same time. iop jkl bnm Please help me...


Your NumLk (number lock) may be on. When the NumLk is on a LED will be turned on.
To turn off the NumLk it is usually a combination of two keys, the Fn key + the ScrLk/NumLk key.

Asus Netbook - Keyboard locked on numbers


The number lock key has been pressed, press the NumLk key to turn off the number keys. There is a LED light that turns on when the NumLk key is press, just like the Caps lock key.

The upside down display is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key.
Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.
ALSO
To change the display from portrait to landscape
Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.

Some of the letters i type are coming out as numbers


It sounds like the Numlk (number lock) is turned on. You will need to find the button on your laptop called ScrLk or NumLk. Press shift and this key to turn off number lock, or it is ctrl and the ScrLk button.
