Hello,
I have problem with my hp pavilion laptop . When the num lock is ON I can't write letters L, U and some other letters.
Fn+num lock does not help. I tried fn + F11 and some other solutions from the forum as well, but had no luck. I have that problem only when the num lock I is ON, otherwise I can write those letters.
Could someone PLEASE help me with this.
thanks

Hi There

If you're writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps

this all may or may not work above..but the another way is to go into your accessories and find your on screen keyboard ,,then use your mouse to turn off and on your number lock this will clear it....tony

Well, I am running a Toshiba Satellite P300 and I am having this same problem and no combination of Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Num Lock, or any of the F keys has been able to fix this problem. I just got it back from repair and they changed the mother board. I have updated the bios. I did a fresh OS install to Vista that came with my computer. Even upgraded to Windows 7. I didn't have this problem before it went out for repair, but now when I press the Num Lock key, it changes my number pad to numbers, as expected, but also changes the right side of my keyboard to numbers as well which is very frustrating. I have been surfing for 2 days online to find a solution to it and even called the tech that was in charge of the repair and no one has any answers for me.
thnk u god bless
