Hi,

Try to boot to "Safe Mode" by pressing F8, F10..(depending on the laptop model) at the POST screen. If you can type from there, you are a 100% sure that the issue is regarding software. In this case, you can either run a full virus scan, reinstall the OS or perform registry editing.

If you cannot still type in Safe Mode, check if you have a function on your keyboard that enables and disables it. If none then you may need to replace it.

Hope this helps. Any remark is highly appreciated.

My Gateway laptop - 2 yrs old - just developed problem - some letter keys actualy type numbers ... eg "M" becomes zero,total of nine, while the zero number key types"/". Help!


Sounds like you have turned on the NUM LOCK on the laptop keyboard. If you look closely you will see the numbers on those keys (maybe in a different colour).

You need to turn off NUM LOCK again. On the laptop I'm looking at, this is done by pressing Fn and END together, but the key should be marked with NUM LOCK as well.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-18. The keyboard


Connect an external keyboard to your laptop. If the external keyboard works properly that means the keyboard of your laptop is defective and you have to replace it. If you get the same problem with the external keyboard reinstall your operating system (it could be a virus).

Gateway laptop keyboard typing incorrect letters


Windows has support for many input-languages, e.g., for keyboards made in France with accented characters,
and for the DVORAK keyboard layout (which is a complete
rearrangement of the letters on the keyboard for maximum
typing-speed).

Go into "Control Panel", and "Regional and Language" and click the "Language" tab, and switch to the "USA Keyboard".

Keyboard not typing


Try just hitting Num Lock.

Hold Fn and hit Num Lock.

Hold Fn and hit the blue "lock icon" on the keyboard.

Either of these should solve your problem.

Acer aspire 3003wcli keyboard stopped responding


You probably activated the "Num Lock" accidently. Just hold down the FN and look for the key that says "num lock" Now you should have your keyboard back and the numbers will just type when you hit the numbers key. I did this to myself yesterday!

Keyboard


Not a big problem...

You probably have an external keyboard attached to the laptop at some point yes?

Easiest way to fix is attach an external keyboard and disable # lock.

Or on your keyboard.. use the FN key and hold it while you press the key on your laptop that has NUM or # on it. Look at the lights on the laptop to see if NUM LOCK is enable.

best wishes.

Keyboard on an acer computer


No. Have her reboot and retry. Then check the keyboard connection. Still nothing, then, the keyboard may have failed and needs replaced.
