I have a HP Pavilion DV9000 entertainment PC.
When the num lock button is on certain keys on my keyboard types numbers instead of letters.
I have tried pressing the FN+num lock and FN+Shift+num lock and the problem still persists.
The letters that are typeing numbers with num lock on are U, I, O, P, J, K, L, and M.
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
This is because of an external keyboard or screenkeyboard was used,
on that, numlock was changed, and still in the system.
When you unplug it, with the numlock off on the laptop, but on on the keyboard,
you will have a difference and its activated in the system, what only can be helped with an external keyboard possibly.
Sounds difficult, most because of my explaination, but here is to do it:
1: Turn off numlock on your laptop.
2: Plug in an external keyboard.
3: Probarely numlock is on, turn it off on the External,
but leave the laptop allone.
4: Now its both off,
5: unplug the Keyboard
6: Now it will be fine!
On my lap top I have a full qwerty key board. when I say letters being typed as numbers I mean the letters on my keyboard are being replaced by numbers. When numlock is on the numberpad should be the only thing that is typeing numbers when pressed. This is some kind of sticky key or something that effect that is on and I can not figure out to turn it off. This is not normal since it only just recently started doing this.
IT DOES HAVE ITS OWN NUMERIC KEYPAD JUST LIKE A REGULAR KEYBOARD, MINE DOES THE SAME THING; WHEN THE NUM LOCK BUTTON IS ON AND YOU USE THE REGULAR KEYBOARD TO THE LEFT TO TYPE YOU WILL INTERMITTANTLEY GET NUMBERS INSTEAD OF LETTERS WHILE TYPING
I have the same computer. What I do is to is I attach another external keyboard and use the numlock function on that. after that it seems to work, even when unplugged. But be warned, this seems to be only a temporary fix and I have to do this every time I restart.
I have the same problem with the Number lock taking over the letters when I have a separate number pad like a standard full keyboard. I have a Toshiba Satellite P300D which had the keyboard replaced last year and ever since this has been happening. I seemed to have tried everthing, but has anyone got any other solutions?
I had the exact problem.
When typing the alphabet it'd be like a123423c6786868ef8908097342i64564jk96340357275824578265874pqr2576985702tuvwxyz
I closed every program ( because keyboard typing also did it :/ )
And the culprit was a program I was running because as soon as I closed it my typing worked
