Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

Keyboard doesn't work

Several times, on this brand new Gateway, the keyboard fails to function. None of the keys work, and the lights (as on Num Lock) are not lit. On the Control Panel the "Keyboad" is not listed. Something has removed the Keyboard Driver. This has happened three or four times. The keyboard that came with the computer has a serial port connection. After rebooting a couple times, because of Plug and Play, the keyboard again functions. Help remove the frustration. Thank you. JoeJoe

Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

First my mouse pad stop working and then my keyboard. What's wrong with my computer?

Test it with a brand new keyboard. If it does not solve the problem, then your keyboard controller and or your motherboard is dying.

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]

Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

I am not able to work with my keyboard function keys and num keys and function keys . but the the touch pad key is onlyworking .please send a solution to unlock the keyboard. hp pavilion g6-2102tx

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon. Hope this helps.

Have a new wireless HP keyboard for all in one omni 100, keys do not correspond on screen with keyboard, have tried adding different language keyboards in regions to no avail, what am I doing wrong_+(* ...

It's possible that you have hit the Num Lock key while you had another key pressed. Try the following combinations, one at a time, to see if any of them work. Be sure to test each one before moving on to the next one.

CTRL and NUM LK
Shift and NUM LK
ALT and NUM LK

A lot of times characters will swap places if one of these combinations has been pressed, and pressing the combination again should switch it back. Let me know how it goes! If this doesn't work, we'll try something else.

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop keyboard is typing odd numbers and symbols instead of some of the lettters. Examples, the letter "l" comes out "3" . Other letters come out as a back slash, etc. A plug in USB...

Is the Num Lock light lit? This light is the one all the way to the left of several on the computer to the left of the power button (it looks like a padlock with a 9 in the center). The integrated number pad is probably active. Press to toggle this feature off. The Num Lk key is to the right of the various function keys but to the left of the keys labeled Insert and Delete.

I hope this helps.

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.
