Hi1
There may be a real simple fix for this.
Go to your "System Restore" in system tools.
Restore your computer to any date prior to this issue that everything worked.
Vista is a mess!

P.s.
Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?

My numeric keyboard is not working, the num lock is on.


Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it does the same thing? Also check your keyboard to see if there is some type of key combination that locks or unlocks the numeric keypad. If so, usually you will have to hit the FN key or the ALT key or the CTRL key plus some other key to get it to toggle.

Some of the keyboard of my acer aspire one netbook is not working like backspace,number three,number two,caps lock,shift.


you need to clean the keyboard from dust and other unclean things.

try to blow air under the keypads, if you have a bicycle pomp, you can use it gently.
if not use a straw to point the air under the keys.
another option is to remove the keyboard cover and have a major cleanup to the keypad.

I can not type anything, sign up. the key pad is confusing tyoing dfferent things


Your keyboard has a "keypad-lock" key, to switch the keys from typing letters to typiing numbers in a layout like an adding machine.

Or, since Windows supports "foreign" keyboards (German, Spanish, French, Norwegian), where the layout of the keys is different, use the "Regional" settings inside "Control Panel" to select the "USA English" input-method.

My function key is on and i cant figure out how to turn it off


Hi,


To use the embedded keypad

After pressing Fn+F8 to activate the numeric keypad, you must press the Lock key
(in the top row of the keyboard) to turn number lock on or off.
When number lock is on:
• Keys change to the numeric or arithmetic designations printed on the right side of the
keys in the numeric keypad area.
• The Num Lock status indicator is lit.
• To turn off the embedded keypad, press Fn+F8 again.

For further reference of usage of Function keys, check the HP manual:

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys


Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.
For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.
SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)
If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
