There is a num lock key. Press Fn Num Lock (I believe it is the scroll lock key on this particular keyboard).

My keyboard is typing numbers and characters instead of letters!


Hello,

Sounds like you have num lock on. The Num lock key is usually the same as Scrlk but to select the Num lock you have to press and hold Shift then press NumLk/ScrLk. A light should light up to indicate the keypad is on/off.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

Don't have user manual Get one?


Check to see if Num Lock is turned on. Depending on your computer, it may light up the key with a green light, or a green light may be lit near the part of the computer where the screen is connected to the computer.

How to get rid of numberlock in ibm thinkpad t30


Hi Ritadeng,

On the Thinkpad T30, the number lock key can be turned on or off by pressing the shift-key and the scroll-lock key. The scroll lock button is found at the top of the keyboard between the PrtSc button and the Pause button.

You should see the light with the arrow and the number 1 inside (just above the F7 key) turn on and off when you press this.

Hope this helps!

Numbers locked


If the function key isn't releasing the numbers lock, then the keyboard has malfunctioned and will need to be replaced. You can get a good deal on a replacement keyboard on Ebay.
