Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T42 Notebook

1 Answer

Odd problem with keyboard on Lenovo Win7 laptop: When I try to type my Yahoo ID into Yahoo Messenger to log in, ANY keys I hit will type, in order: 1234567899012345... (etc.) My keypad is not locked, and it doesn't matter which keys I hit. I also get this when I try typing in a remote window using LogMeIn.com. However, if I switch to Notepad, Wordpad, or some other program on the laptop, the keyboard instantly works fine. Then, if I switch back to Y.M., I will get exactly 1 keystroke that I am trying to type, followed by the ascending numbers. If I hit the shift key, I get the characters you get from hitting the numbers+shift (!@#$%^&*()!@#$%...) I can type my ID in Wordpad, copy it, then past it into Y.M., but I use it all the time, so this is very frustrating. It is DEFINITELY NOT keypad lock.

Have you got an up to date anti virus programme running? It sounds like the sort of thing that happens with a virus.
Hope that helps.

    Just a thought,
    Have you got your keyboard set to numerals in messenger?
    Try resetting the keyboard within the Yahoo programme back to standard keyboard by usinf FN key with the F11 key or whichever key has the numeric pad symbol on it.
    Hope this helps a bit more.

My yahoo massager and my yahoo mail is locked how do i fix it


Accounts are locked for 24 hours if you - or someone else - used the wrong password three or more times when attempting to sign into your account.

"Locked Account"
Account Locked


If you recently changed your password, Messenger will not automatically update it. You will need to switch to a desktop or laptop and update your new password in Messenger.

"To manually update Yahoo! Messenger with your new account password:

1. Open Yahoo! Messenger.
2. On the main Yahoo! Messenger sign in screen, clear out your Yahoo! ID:
- Select your Yahoo! ID in the Yahoo! ID box and press Delete on your keyboard.
3. Clear out your old password:
- Select your password in the Password box and press Delete on your keyboard.
4. Type your Yahoo! ID and new password in the Yahoo! ID and Password boxes.
5. Leave the Remember my ID & password checkbox checked, if you wish.
6. Click Sign In."

Please clear your cache and cookies before entering your new password. This will allow the system to update and recognize your password.

Passwords are case sensitive and must be typed exactly as it appears on file.

When signing in from a mobile device, please note that some mobile devices are set to automatically capitalize the first letter.

Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"
