Hello,

Many times repeatedly tapping on the Scroll Lock key will cause a keyboard to reset itself so the number lock works again.

This type of issue is very dependent upon your specific equipment and the OS used. General usage solutions are at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894513/en-us
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/320095/en-us

If neither of these appears to relate to your situation, please allow me to suggest either typing "numeric keypad not working" in the advanced search box at the top of this window and seeking the answer. Otherwise, please post back if you need further assistance, with information regarding your PC make & model, and the OS you are using. (For instance, the Num Lock was always automatically set to off upon startup in Windows 2000, and the only fix was to modify the registry.)

Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Where is the number lock on this keyboard?


As with most laptops there is no number lock key. you dont have the number pad like most desktop keyboards. you have a (fn) key this works for all the keys that have a square around them it may be blue/white/purple, and is located on the bottom left should be the second key on the bottom left row right next to the ctrl key. but once again there is no number lock key.

If i press function key then all the keys work good otherwise keys just type numbers.


You have the number lock in the ON position.
The function key is usually of a different color (usually blue or green) look for the key with has the words Num Lock of the same color as the function key usually its the same key as the ScrLK (scroll lock)key. While holding the function key press the number lock key then release all keys and try to type.
Most computers have a light that indicates when the number lock is on just like the Caps lock on a desktop its on the keyboard, on a laptop the lights are either above the keys or on the bottom of the screen, look at the lights and you should see a number 1. if its on then follow the steps above until it turns off.
Good luck
