    got a small bit of liquid on the touchpad, and at first the touchpad wouldn't work and the keyboard was fine, but after restoring the computer to an earlier date the next day (to give it time to dry out) now the touchpad is fine and the keyboard is stuck. the caps lock is locked on and no keys work, only getting a tone sound when pressing them, also tabs open under certain keys like p, and backspace... tried cleaning the keyboard still no luck, and when open microsoft publisher it says that i am pressing the 'control' key down when typing...

Hi there.

Try going to the BIOS and testing the keyboard there to see what happens. You do this by tapping the F10 key at start up when you see the HP INVENT splash screen. (The key may be different just keep an eye on the screen and it will say Fx for setup), try using the up and down arrows here. If it works then it probably just a windows problem, reinstalling the drivers should fix that, if not, or you're not able to get to the BIOS, try a different keyboard and see what happens. If the external works but the internal keyboard fails to function, you maybe looking at a hardware problem from what you are describing. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there! :-)

Hi There. Not sure what key i've gone and pressed. The majority of the letters/numbers on my keyboard all work in first hand english but some of the keys where i have an option with a smaller blue number...

You have turned on the numeric keys on your laptop. It is turned off/on by the following.

Press the Num Lock key. If nothing happens, try Shift+Num Lock.
If the text Num Lock is shown in a different color, find the matching-color key, such as Alt or Fn. Then press that key in combination with Num Lock.
You’re successful when the Num Lock light comes on. At that point, the keyboard has switched into numeric keypad mode.

Fn key must be held down to type certain letters

This happens when the num lock key is activated.
To deactivate you have to press Fn+ another key (the key has the words num lock written on it in blue etc.)

Hello I have an Inspiron 1420 that is typing

Hi John,
It sounds to me like you have your Num Lock on. Find the Num Lock key (it should be on the top right of the keyboard) press that key and your keyboard will return to normal.


Regards.

The num lock key controls letters on regular keyboard.

Let Number key stay off then you could use normal 1234567890 that is between QWERTYUIOP and F1-F12

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!

Suddenly,nearly half of the keys type other characters !!!

You have a numeric keypad built into the keyboard, press the function button (FN) followed by the number lock button (num lock). Hope this helps.
