Question about Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966 Notebook

1 Answer

My numeric keypad went out a couple months ago. The numlock light no longer comes on and none of the keys on the keypad function. I have the most up to date drivers and BIOS. I've googled many different **** functions to try. I even bought a new keyboard, but when I installed it, I had continued to have the same problem. What can I do to fix this?

SOURCE: numlock problem in HP DV9000

why need to press numlock when it has already a numeric numbers above? when pressing numlock on a laptop it will turn the letters to number because you lock the it. now to go back on the letters you have to press again the numlock key.

SOURCE: work with an external numeric keyboard

I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.

SOURCE: hp probook 4520s numeric keypad not working even

Hello susan, if the numlock key doesnt work.

id recommend for you to do a restore.

just type in restore on the seach bar after you press the start button on the lower left habd side of your screen.

this lets you go back to the previous setting when it last worked.

Send us a feedback if it works.

The numeric key pad on my keyboard does not work


There's usually a Numlock key that turns off the cursor movement and turns on the numeric keys. If it doesn't say "Num Lock" or something similar, you might need to press the Fn key with the F1-F12 key that looks like a numeric keypad. Pressing the Shift key while pressing a number on the numeric keypad should give a number output if the Num Lock is turned off, the cursor movement if Num Lock is on.

You must have a different keyboard selected other than the standard US keyboard My numeral 6 has ^ on it and the numeric keypad 6 has a right arrow. One generally uses the SHIFT key to access symbols that are written above the main alpha or numeric key. The numeric keypad on side of PC has a button labeled key marked NUMLOCK that is engaged to allow use of the numerals as a calculator or to also be inserted into text.

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

Keyboard is stuck in numeric mode. Can't type


On the Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 there is a key located on the top right next to the F12 function key called "NumLk" or Num Lock.
Press this key once and the embedded numeric keypad is enabled.
Press it a second time and it is disabled.
How do you know if it is enabled or disabled?
Simple: Observe the LED above the keyboard. If the second light with the square symbol and the number "1" is lit up, then the NumLock is enabled. If that LED is not lit up it is disabled.

Good Luck.
