Simply so, why can't I type numbers on my computer?
Reason for the Keyboard typing numbers instead ofletters To type a number, you have to hold down the Altor the fn key, otherwise you will be typing letters only.When the keyboard starts typing numbers only instead ofletters, then probably the num lock is on.
Similarly, how do you fix Num Lock on a laptop? Press the Num Lock key. If nothing happens, tryShift+Num Lock. If the text Num Lock is shown in adifferent color, find the matching-color key, such as Alt or Fn.Then press that key in combination with NumLock.
Similarly one may ask, how do you type numbers on a laptop?
To activate the number pad, find thenumber lock key (usually labeled NumLock, Num Lk, or Num).You might have to press the Fn or Shift key to get it to work. Now,those keys will function as the numeric keypad for yourlaptop. Just press the number lock again to turn thisfeature off.
How do I reset my keyboard?
Tap the “Alt” and “Shift”keys simultaneously if you are pressing one keyboard key andgetting a different symbol or letter. This will reset thekeyboard defaults on some laptops. Press the“Ctrl” key and tap the "Shift" keysimultaneously if the procedure in Step 1 did notwork.
