My desktop keyboard will not type letters. It will only type numbers. I pushed fn & Num Lock that did not work. What can I do?


Press the Start key + R.

type osk in that box and hit enter

On this keyboard, try toggling numlock scrolllock and capslock a few times.

Also, try this too: Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

hope this helps

OK! Lets troubleshoot this together.

First thing we want to do is verify that your keyboard & mouse and plugged into the correct places and are powered up and able to work.

Turn your computer on and look at your keyboard and tell me if any lights are on to show that it has power and is operational.

Watch the keyboard lights until the computer gets to the login page and tell me if the lights come on and stay on? Or do the lights turn on for a moment and then turn off again?

If you do not see any lights, please clarify if there are NO LIGHTS on your style of keyboard or if there are lights but they are not lighting up.

If your keyboard has lights and they are not lighting up at all, then turn off the computer and unplug the mouse and keyboard and swap them around. Then turn the computer on again and tell me if the lights come on and the mouse and keyboard become operational.

Once we verify this we can continue to the next step of troubleshooting. Please report what you find and I will help you solve this.

You have your keyboard set as US. If you go into control panel, open Regional and Language options and change all of the settings with a country to UK. That will solve your problem.

You might want to try typing on safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you see the Dell Logo. If the same weird characters appear, then this would be an OS software issue. Doing Repair or OS Reinstall would resolve it. You can also try another keyboard to see if it is a keyboard problem.
