Is your Num-Lock Key working?

Posted on Jul 01, 2008

  • MarkL1956 Jul 01, 2008

    Sorry, I should be more specific;

    Do the Keys that represent the Numeral Pad work (as Numbers) with the NUM-LOCK key [ON], and / or do the Keys that represent the Numeral Pad work (as special function keys) with the NUM-LOCK key [OFF]?



    Is this a programable keyboard, that you could try resetting back to defaults?



    Regards

My number pad on my keyboard is not working, how can I reactivate it?


At the top, left corner of the number pad, there should be a key that says "Num Lock." This key toggles the functionality of the number pad keys between Numbers and Directions.

Press Num Lock once and the numbers should start working again.

Press it again, and the keys should go back to the Directions (up, down, left, right, Page Up, etc.)

Good luck!

I cant find the number lock for my md7820u to use


Is yours a laptop because most laptops don't have a number lock and if it is a keyboard you should have two sets of numbers. One in a line on top and one like a phone pattern on the right side. If you only have the top row then there shouldn't be a number lock or scroll lock. The one that will be there is Cap Lock

JUST HLP PLEASEEEEE


Sounds like your keyboard is sticking

Unplug the keyboard and do the following

Look on the bottom you should see some screws, remove the screws and leaving the keys facing down, pop the two pieces apart.

Leaving the electronics aside you can now continue with the following instructions
Ok, once you have the two pieces, all of the keys should stay in there proper place, take and soak that in the sink with some soap and water.
Moving all the keys to get the water to flow through.
Then dry off the Keyboard and vacuum all the excess water off, then replace and screw back together, you should be good to go.

I wouldn't recommend a dishwasher, this could get to hot and melt the keys

Keyboard


It could be a short in the cable to the computer or maybe corrupted software. To use those extra keys requires extra software so I'd be inclined to uninstall it and then then reboot and then reinstall. As those extra keys can be changed to almost anything you want them to do I'd bet on a software problem. Run the software that's installed on it now and see what it's set on now. It's pretty straight forward to reset everything. Oh and make sure the plug to the computer is plugged in fully
