You might check and clean the keyboard connection to the motherboard. However, usually this indicates keyboard failure. It's most likely that you're have to replace the keyboard.

My number pad on my keyboard is not working, how can I reactivate it?


At the top, left corner of the number pad, there should be a key that says "Num Lock." This key toggles the functionality of the number pad keys between Numbers and Directions.

Press Num Lock once and the numbers should start working again.

Press it again, and the keys should go back to the Directions (up, down, left, right, Page Up, etc.)

Good luck!

Why do I get a 1 when I type a j?


Hi, this is becasue your "num lock" key is truned on. on laptops there is no numer keypad so when you press the num lock key some of the letters do double duty as numbers. Just press the num lock key again and it will turn your keyboard back to normal.

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.

Typing numbers instead of letters


Your keyboard has "extra" keys:
* print-screen / system-request
* scroll-lock
* pause / break
* num lock

Press that "num lock" key.
For a laptop keyboard, you may have to hold down the 'FN' key,
at the same time that you press "num lock", to enable/disable this function.

There is no key for numlock on my Dell studio 15 keyboard


The num lock key is labeled as 'Num Lk' on the Dell Studio 15 keyboard. It is located above the =/+ key next to backspace.

To activate num lock, you cannot just press the button. You have to make sure the num lock light is on and then hold down Fn while using the numpad.

Hope this helps,

There is a Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard and a num lock key at the top right of the keyboard (depending on the model) Hold the Fn key and then press the num lock key, that should fix your problem.
