What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

Numbers not typing


Hiya Sherry

Sounds like one of the Shift keys are stuck, does it happen with just the number keys or do other keys that have extra characters on do the same.

You might want to also look at Windows Sticky Keys options

Capslock needs to be on to get lower case and number keys dont work yet number lock will allow symbols to work but not then letter keys that have small numbers in left hand corners. Problem is on a Sony...


Please check if the accessibility option is enabled to convert your number pad to mouse keys, if you have a full numberpad.

Since you have not specified what it the model number of the computer, i am giving your common steps.

Also check restart the computer in safe mode (keep tapping the F8 key while you restart and choose the safe mode option using the up and down arrow key and hit enter) and check if the number keys work.

Ican"t type numbers can you please help


From Dell user manual:
The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, press <Fn> and the desired key after enabling the keypad.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.
