As a temporary solution, you can try using an external USB keyboard. That will work. To fix your number keys, you may need to get your keyboard replaced if it is broken. Will your Num Lock shut off? Try turning it on and off a few times.

How to turn on number pad


Press the NUMLOCK key a couple of times till you get it working. Usually the NUMLOCK key disables/enables the 10-key number pad.

I have a gateway laptop running windows 8 and all of a sudden my number pad stopped working. I've searched and read till my eyes feel like they're going to fall out, help!!


Have you pressed/un-pressed the NUMLOCK key?

OR

You may have a stuck key somewhere on your 10-key numeric keyboard. Sometimes dirt (coffee, dust, soda) is blocking the contacts to the circuit board from the keyboard.

Keyboard issue


You may have selected the Number Lock which turns the RHSkeyboard into a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as a ScrLk key, it is located near the F12function key. When you press this key it will turn off the Number Lock, alsothe NumLk LED light will switch off.

Yyeah i have a compaq presario cq56 and i dont see numb lock anyone know where it is


There is no numlock key. The reason for that is because there is not a dedicated number pad like on most desktop keyboards. the numlock key specifies using the numbers on the pad, or the arrows and alternate functions of the keypad.

My computer keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters.. any suggestions on how to fix it


This is because most notebook keyboards have a number pad incorporated into the right-hand side of the keyboard. Numbers are being typed because the NumLock is active.
To disable this function press the NumLock key (might be marked NumLock or have a symbol that looks like a calculator on it) on the keyboard (you might need to press the Fn function key and the NumLock simultaneously).
