How to Create Symbols on my PC?


To use Alt key codes, ensure that "Num Lock" is on - you may need to tap the Num Lock key to turn it on. Next, press the Alt key and hold it down. Tap the appropriate numbers using the number pad at the right side of your keyboard and then release the Alt key.

Keys won't type letters or numbers. can't type in password to unlock e-machine 1603


NUMBER LOCK
You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad.
Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key. When the NumLk has been enabled a LED light is turn on to indicate this function has been selected. Press the NumLk key again to turn off the Number Lock and Num Lock LED indicator.

Where is the Number key lock on my new hp laptop?? I can't get my router to work


usually if the computer do not have a num lock neat the numbers in the left corner ..I mean if you only have numbers on top of the letters this means that the numbers are always on ...and if you need to change to the upper symbols use the shift key above the ctrl and Fn key ...If you do not have the numbers always on under the letters it means that you used the fn key and changed the functions of the keys or some kinda odd virus did that and in this case a reinstall will fix it ..but I dont this this is the case...
If you have Numbers in the right side like a full size keyboard..than the num LK will be on top of them if you only have numbers on top of the letters than the numbers are always on and the shift will change to the symbols

If i press function key then all the keys work good otherwise keys just type numbers.


You have the number lock in the ON position.
The function key is usually of a different color (usually blue or green) look for the key with has the words Num Lock of the same color as the function key usually its the same key as the ScrLK (scroll lock)key. While holding the function key press the number lock key then release all keys and try to type.
Most computers have a light that indicates when the number lock is on just like the Caps lock on a desktop its on the keyboard, on a laptop the lights are either above the keys or on the bottom of the screen, look at the lights and you should see a number 1. if its on then follow the steps above until it turns off.
Good luck

I can't type anything on my keyboard. How do you


I donot think there is a lock key on the keyboard only if you have special one, there is only Num lock which lock only the numbers, but make sure your cable is plugged well from the computer side, disconnect and connected again, restart the computer and try again. it should work.

Thanks for using Fixya

Still cannot get my computer to change from numbers pad to letters on my laptop Wwilsworld@AOL.COM


Your PC appears to be stuck in "Num Lock" mode. Depending on your model, you should be able to toggle this mode with the "Num Lock" key. Once it is out of this mode, the letters keys should work.
