The number pad on the right of the keyboard on one of our HP keyboards is coming up with the other function associated with each number rather than the number when pressed. How can I stop this so the numbers come up instead?

What are the names of kyboard and its keys ?


it is only for a computer keyboard hope it help from you.

A computer keyboard serves as a main operating tool for accessing and inputting data into a computer. The keyboard features many functions and keys that a user may never use, but is still essential to some users. Understanding the keyboard can improve computer knowledge and use.

QWERTY Pad

The "QWERTY" pad is main sections of letters on the keyboard. These letters are mainly used for typing and also as shortcuts in programs like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe After Effects and computer games.
Number Pads

The far right side of the keyboard features a number pad that resembles a calculator. This number pad is essential for programs like Excel, but can also be used to input numbers as a typing function. More numbers are just above the "QWERTY" keyboard that also feature symbols when the "Shift" button is used.
Arrow Keys

The right bottom of a keyboard features four directional arrow keys. These keys provide navigation through word processing documents and also serve as scrolling functions in web browsers.
F Bar

The top of a keyboard features the "F Keys," a selection of keys that extends to "F12" on most keyboards. These keys serve different functions. For example, "Alt and F4" exits out of a program. "F1" will start the typing helper in word processing programs.
Extra Keys

New keyboard feature shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard. These include shortcuts like "Power," "Sleep Mode," "Calculator," "My Computer" and "Web." Some also include media controls for movies and music.

When my number lock is on the letters will not print as stated they will print a number or other


This is normal for a keyboard with embedded number pad, rather than a separate 10-key area. Turn off the number lock to type the alphabetical characters and use the top row of numbers to enter values. Turn on the number lock when entering only a long string of numbers.

Alternatively, connect a USB external keyboard to the notebook. Either get a large keyboard with a separate number pad or get a 10-keypad only (http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=37379 ). Then you can have a normal keyboard and stil have the 10-key functions without toggling the NumLock often.

I hope this helps.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

A red light comes on my hp touchpad and I loose all control, and can't get it back. How do i re-gain controll of my touch pad?


It shows that you have accidentally shut off the touch pad. In the upper left corner of the touch pad is a dimple/circular depression. Tap it twice, the light will go out and normal touch pad function will return.

Cannot use right side numbers of the keyboard, other functions ar


I'm not sure what keyboard you have but there should be an "Fn mode", "Mode" or similar button on your keyboard, it should be the same color as the function icons on your other keys. This is usually used to toggle between the different modes. If this doesn't work or only works while your holding it down then you'll need to find the setting software for your keyboard. It's most likely in with your other programs or in Control Panel, some will put an icon in your task tray that you can double click or right click to access them.
