There's a little led that lights up on the keyboard to show that Num lock is on. Why do you want to see it on the monitor? Are you using some kind of keyboard software on your monitor? What is your operating system? What is the name of the keyboard software you are using? Could really use a little more information. Maybe your particular keyboard software doesn't have a num lock feature because the numbers are always locked any way. Need more details.

I have an aspire 5532 num lock will not activate. I have tried FN and num lock together. The orientation operation works but the numerals will not show. The num lock is labeled white with no FN blue...

If the word NumLk (or NumLock) is written is white, then you will only need to press Num Lock key once to activate Num Lock

Usually software settings do not affect Num Lock or Caps Lock keys and should always work, unless there is a problem with that specific key.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.

Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).


Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

Please go to safe mode using administrator account and check whether it is entering or not? the 9 light shows the num lock is on and it could be turned off by pressing num lock or Fn num lock combo. This will also ensure (if num lock is working) that the issue is woth software.

Check the blinking codes below and reason behind that for HP Compaq laptops Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS corruption failure Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Memory Module error not functional Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Graphics Graphics controller not functional Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - System board General system board failure Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS authentication failure Well Check for the below link it will provide you the steps which you need to perform to isolate the cause so that we can determine which hardware of the laptop is causing this issue. You need to first Remove the memory module (RAM)- Try to power on the laptop ? then again reset it and try to power on. Check whether it is coming on or not. try the same procedure with Hard drive. If laptop is getting power on after removing one of the device then we can be sure that that particular device is faulty and we can change that then?

Whenever I hit a number key it turns on and off the num lock (when num lock i off on keyboard). I use the keypad to play games and this just minimizes the game and shows me a messgae about num lock be...

This keypad is meant for mass number data, not as a joystick replacement I'm afraid.
Did you install any software that came with it? If so, try removing it Normally you don't have on-screen NumLock messages, so this must be something extra.
It clearly wants to be used for number entry. Perhaps it has some switch to change it's behavior, either physical, or in software?

Microsoft wireless keyboard stopped working

There are a couple ways to fix the num lock problem. The first is to enter the BIOS setup when you first turn on your PC. The second involves a registry edit. Neither is difficult to do, but if not done correctly can cause serious damage to your PC.
