Marion, I imagine this is on your laptop? You need to turn off Number Lock. On Toshiba Laptops, I am pretty sure you hold down the "FN" key and the hit F11. That should turn off your Number Lock. If you look closely at your keyboard, you will see that J corresponds with 1 and K corresponds with 2 and so on.

Hope this helps! Let me know!

Keyboard letters are numbers and numbers are letters


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.



hope this helps

My laptop is only typing the numbers that appear on the letter keys. For example when I hit the letter J, it types a number 1. When I hit the letter k key, it types a 2, etc. How do I get it to go back...


Usually you have to hold the "Fn" key to get to these. Look for a "NumLock" key to turn this off. You may need to use the "Fn" key to select numlock.

I have a advent laptop, i am looking onlibe for a new keyboard as my little boy got hold of laptop this morning and pulled every key off, i need to know wat number adven my laptop is how do i find out...


I do not know about a new keyboard but your model number is usually found on the base of the machine.

If you have the parts the boy pulled off you be able to stick them right back - most keyboard letter buttons fit in with a simple push. The Shift, Caps lock and space-bar have little wires that need to be hooked into a matching part in the base before you push it in. Hook the wire while holding the part level and above the keyboard, then pull back and push in. Good luck!

Hye mr expert...Here i have some question about my samsung netbook n220 series. For your info...actually this problem never happen before.The problem is some of my key not working & some of my key...


Hi,

The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric
