Preferred Solution: Numbers (0 through 9) on the Right Side of the keyboard are not active

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What do you mean by "not active"? Num Lock must be on or they will do the other function.

I have an Inspiron 5545 running win10.
On opening, the right side hinge on the keyboard section pulled three screws and inserts free, cracked the plastic in the corner where the hinge is located, killed the WiFi, and caused an intermittent vertical line to appear on the screen.
The laptop has never been out of  the house, never dropped, and seldom left my lap when I was home.
It runs, but is held together with aa 1.5" black paper clamp and connects to the home network via a USB WiFi dongle from Wal-Mart..
This is my fourth or fifth laptop and the first to have the case fail.  This is a design failure in my opinion.  Boo on you, Dell.  I've bought a lot of your computers over the years because they worked and did not fall apart with normal use.  This one disappoints.

I bought a Dell Inspiron 5545. From the first day I lifted the screen of the laptop, there was a click from the right side where the hinge of the screen meets the base of the laptop. I just assumed this was something internally that kept the screen in the open position because there are so many other items click when you open them. However, over the past few weeks a gap started to appear that has become increasingly larger between what appears to be the bottom of the case and the top in that same place where the right hinge is.
C'mon Dell.  It is a design flaw and should be fixed as such.

got a problem with my laptop keypad. it works fine if i keep my finger on the left hand side function button. If I release the function button, all the letters on the right side of the keyboard come up as numbers,

eg if I write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog", with out my finger on the function button it comes out as

"The q45c2 br6wn f6x 140*s 6ver the 3azy d6g"

I'm running Windows XP Professional Version 2002 - Service Pack 2, samsung X10 laptop with 1.70Ghz.

A:Right Side Of Keypad Only Displays Numbers - No Letters ?

If you plug in another keyboard it is fine. Hmm off hand it sounds to me like it is a problem with the on board keyboard. That is a real feat on a laptop to replace. Is the laptop still in warrantee? If so I would call Samsung tech support right away, as a matter of fact I would call them on this matter anyway, they may have something about this that might just be covered by a recall or something, and they are the experts at their equipment.

Bought new SONY camcorder. I want to share videos with sources (options are facebook, utube, etc.). When I select video to share, and choose facebook, I must log in to facebook. When doing so, my keyboard only types numbers. But when I use all other sources like utube, the keyboard works fine - uses letters. Even SONY cannot figure this out. Any advise????

A:Keyboard using numbers ONLY in certain areas

Your keyboard switches to numbers on facebook only? I don't see why it should only happen on facebook. Ensure that you do not have "num lock" on when you are on facebook.

If it is only ever facebook that it happens, then it may be easiest to type your username and password in notepad first and then copying and pasting them into their respective fields - discarding the current notepad file afterwards.

I can type numbers with the number pad on the side of the keyboard but not symbols like @,#,$ and the rest. sometimes I write something into another program and copy and paste, but some websites don't let you do that. so how do you get the numbers row on the keyboard to work?

A workaround is by selecting a language in the multi language bar I use; however, when moving to a new text box the keyboard returns to enter numbers instead of letters and selecting a language in the language bar is required again.

This problem exists when using the browsers. MS Word seems not to have the problem. I did not try other applications.

Preface: I'm a computer tech of 13 years, and I've not seen a problem like this, nor can I figure out a way to successfully search for a similar problem online, so I figured I'd try here.

I've got a computer on our network that is displaying a unique symptom. When you type anything, it appears as a series of incrementing numbers from 0 to 9 and repeating. This happens when pressing any letter or number keys. The only key that appears to work is the tilde/backapostrophe (~`). Also interesting is that pressing Shift + any key gives you the symbol appropriate for pressing shift and that number.

So, for example, if I were to type:

This is a test! >> !234 56 7 [email protected]
AaaaaaAAA >> $56789)[email protected]
qwertyuiopasdfghjkl; >> 34567890123456789012

Etc...

The computer had a malware infection prior to this, including the WinAntivirus 2010 infection, as well as a rootkit infection that Gmer's tool located and "successfully" removed.

I don't think this is being caused by an infection, as MBAM and SAS are both showing the system as completely clean. I've tried a PS2 and USB keyboard, both which give the same result. Rkill doesn't show anything running in the background that shouldn't be, and for all other purposes, the computer is working perfectly.

Any ideas here?

A:Keyboard is typing consecutive numbers...!

I do not have a fix at this moment for this one but can recommend a work around.

So as the title says, the keys on the top of my laptop (Under the F keys) don't work in the sense that they give a jumble of symbols/more than one number, rather than what it should:

So from left to right, finishing at the backspace, this is what i get (What you should normally get is on the left, and what i got is on the right)
` = `1
1 = `1
2 = Doesn't give any number, it just opens a new tab in the browser
3 = 3
4 = 54
5 = 54
6 = 67
7 = 67
8 = =8
9 = 9
0 = -0
- = -0
= = =8

With Shift
~ = ~!
! = ~!
@ = @
# = #
$ = %$
% = %$
^ = ^&
& = ^&
( = (
) = _)
- = _)
+ = +*

Sometimes it works alright, and other times this is what happens. Though, this is the longest period of time that it has been messed up for. Also, all the other keys work fine.

If this is a laptop see if this helps.

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

This seems to happen at random times and I cant get rid of it unless I restart the PC, which is what makes me think this is a software, not a hardware problem because my keyboard should be fine really. This only started happening a few weeks after I had made a fresh installation of Windows 7 (previously used XP).

Basically the problem: All of a sudden a random number of keys that are supposed to type letters type random numbers instead. The number of letter keys afflicted on average is probably around 10-30% of the total keys. Which keys are afflicted and what numbers they produce is random.

So when i type "This sucks" I might get instead "th5s 4u34s". Also functions bound to Q in a video game will not function when I actually pres Q in case it would produce a number while typing.

This is killing me.
When in word documents or typing in browsers, my laptop keyboard is perfectly fine, but when I'm in a game or certain other programs (like typing in Pandora, the internet radio) my keyboard (all the numbers, letters, and punctuation keys), when hit, will display numbers. No matter what key is pressed the first press gives me a "1," the next a "2," and so forth until "0" which is when it goes back to "1." I can't play anything and have to copy paste into Pandora's typing field. Oddly, when I hit CTRL-V to paste it still registers. CTRL-random number would not paste, so something is (I think) changing my letters into numbers after the letter registers.
I tried to do all the Num-lock and scroll-lock stuff but it didn't work.

My notebook is an HP Pavilion dv9005ca Laptop (17in. screen) and has a separate numeric keypad. Running Windows XP SP2 with all patches.

The keys: M,JKL,UIO produce numeric characters (0 to 6) when the num lock key is on and the correct characters when it is off (some other keys on that side of the keyboard produce symbols found on the numeric keypad).

Following HP support suggestion at [url not allowed:-( ] I have tried the Fn + num lock combination but this does nothing.

When I first boot up the characters are normal until the num lock key is toggled.

At some point a while ago when entering text I believe I inadvertently pressed a combination of keys that caused this problem.

I hope someone can help.

When I engage NUM LOCK the keys on the right of the main keyboard also become number keys as well as on the numeric keypad on the right.
I've tried pressing Fn and NUM LOCK at the same time like on a non extended keyboard but this makes no difference.

I've also tried different input languages and keyboard styles.
I can't test with an external keyboard because I don't have one. I've downgraded from vista to XP.
I don't know if this made a difference because I didn't notice this until after the downgrade.

Any ideas?

Hi

Sorry but I think I don?t understand your issue?
Fact is that if the NUM LOCK is enabled (FN +F11) then the buttons; U, I, O, J, K, L and M become to numbers:
U to 4
I to 5
O to 6
J to 1
K to 2
L to 3
M to 0

If you would press FN + F11 again then the buttons should be set back to letters...

Hi...I have an Acer AO255 netbook...it functions well aside from a problem with some numbers (4,6,8,0) and some letters (p and a capital V) that do not work...also number 6 is constantly in a connected state (not physically depressed but typing away in any space available)...it`s not the leyboard itself that needs changing but something inside that I figure is somehow stuck and causing a constant connection of the number 6...the other letters and numbers that are not working are at times intermittently working but in the main not !

It is not the keyboard itself that is malfuntioning as the number 6 is merrily typing away even when the keyboard is disconnected...anybody have any ideas as to what could be causing this please ?

The Acer itself works fine...it`s just this key/number thing...I don`t use it now as I have other laptops to use but when I have used it,it`s easy enough to browse etc...but you can imagine the difficulty when needing to type ! ...I have a feeling a connection is stuck but don`t know what or where to look to check.

Thanks,

A:Acer AO255...keyboard letters and numbers won`t function.

I'd bet the keyboard itself is defective.
