You must have Num Lock set to ON.

Look for a key with Num Lock or Num Lk on it (it will probably be on the top row of keys to the right of the Function keys) and press that key to exit Num Lock.

Keyboard typing numbers instead letters


Hi Tiffany,
The Numlock on your laptop is on that is why instead of letters you are getting numbers. In order to get it back to letters please check the key that says Num Lock where the green light is lit up all you have to do is to press it again to disable Num Lock. If in case you can't see it you may want to try pressing Fn + F11 once and check if you are still getting numbers, press Fn + F11 to disable it. Hope it helps.

Oh yes, I have had this happen before and it sucks.

This problem is usually just due to having Num lock on. Try pressing the num lock button on your keyboard and see if this makes a difference. In the smaller notebooks and netbooks they combine the numbers and letters onto the same keys using num lock to distinguish the mode.

I think on your model the num lock button will be towards the top right of the keyboard. You may also have to press the FN (function) button at the same time, but I am not sure.

Also there should be a small led that illuminates or goes dark to inform you when num lock/scroll lock/caps lock are enabled/disabled.

Help the leter keys that have numbera on them type numberd instead of letters how do i switch it


You more then likely have the number lock on look for a key that has a num lock(or numlk) on it if its a laptop it is more then like the letter key that has numbers on them. look for a key on the lower left hand side of the key board that has fn on it hold that key down and then press the key that has num lock or num lk on it and that should fix the problem.

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

The Function keys up top will not do anything when not in a program that has them set.

The num lock key on most laptops does not itself work: it must be pressed in conjunction with another key. This is normally the "FN" key at the lower left.

Please try pressing the "FN" key while you press the "num lock" key and see if this now works.

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key


HI,
If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps
THANK YOU
