How do I turn on and off Num Lock on my Dell inspiron 15


My keyboard does not have a light either. Place the cursor in a place where you can enter characters, like in a text box or Word or Excel. Press one of the number keys on the numeric keyboard, and if a number shows up, the lock is on. If something else happens, or maybe nothing happens, most likely the lock is off. In that case you can press the Num Lock key.again and retry this test.

Hi wa33ban2hart

Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

That should resolve your problem.

I hope this helps.

The characters don't match with keyboard


Hello,
The keyboard is configured from inside the operating system to output the characters of another language. Go to the regional and language options in Control Panel. Under the Languages Tab click the button Details, and make sure that the input language you use when you start the computer is your own language (top drop down list). In the window Installed services verify that the the keyboard that is shown in boldface is your country's keyboard.
If your contry's keyboad is not present you can click the Add button to add it.

Hope it helps.

Connection disappeared


My solution to this has been to unregister the keyboard with my computer, and then re-register it. It happens on both my Windows machine and m macintosh. So I suspect that somehow the keyboard just gets confused at some point.
