HP Laptop- Keyboard issue: Numbers are being entered instead on letters

March 2017



Issue


When the Num lock button is On, certain keys on my keyboard types numbers instead of letters.
Pressing FN+Num lock or FN+Shift+Num lock won't solve the problem.

Solution

  • Press the Start key + R.
  • Type osk in that box and press Enter
  • On this virtual keyboard, try toggling Numlock, Scrolllock and Capslock a few times, while testing the faulty keys.
  • This problem may be due to a stuck or fautly Num lock key.
