sequentially, keyboard types numbers instead of letters when games are played

When I start a video game, the letters on the keyboard may not work properly.  They will be successively type 0-9 over and over again. For example, I type w.  It will tap on 0. If I hit o once again he hits 1. and so on.

I contacted the support for the keyboard, but they had a problem trying to help me with my problem.  I also watched online on the problem in question and observed several cases in the past two months where the keyboard is upward.

A sinful dilemma

I registered just to answer this question.  Exactly the same thing was driving me crazy.  It only happens in a game, and then only when I'm on the map page Options or actually the game.  The game interface chat window was fine, and all other normal uses were very good.

My problem was the installation an entire antivirus ISP provided.  In the bundle was Norton and some other stuff I never had the opportunity to uncheck during installation.  One of the 'other' these programs was something called GuardedID.  Apparently this program was hiding all my keystrokes after my first initial accurate typing with numbers by counting 0 - through-9 and then back to 0.  Maddening!

I uninstalled GuardedID and everything returned to fully functional, as expected.  I don't say that it must be the exact program that is causing your issues.  But maybe you can get a similar password/identity protection program in your anit-virus package.

Good luck!

    I use a laptop with a wireless keyboard to send this message, but want to use my laptop keyboard.

    Hi newsgirl,.

    Somewhere at the top of the laptop keyboard is a key that says Num Lock (or Num Lk or something like that).  It can be accessed directly, or you may need to press a key to access (or some other keys).  In any case, you must click this to turn off the number lock because it is what causes the problem.  This key is usually used on laptops to create a section of a regular keyboard that can act as the normal keyboard calculator keypad (for those who need that, like accountants or persons who need to enter strings of numbers).  Once you turn it off, you will be fine as the keyboard returns to normal.

    I hlpe that aid.

    Good luck!

    Hello Gerome

    You have activated the NumLock feature on your system. From what I found on Acer and by turning off NumLock, you need to hold the function key 'Fn' correspondent and press the "F11". This should disable NumLock and the keys to normal. If this is not the case, look at your keyboard until you find a key with a symbol that has a number and a lock. Press and hold the function key and press the key.
  • With the help of old Windows 2000 laptop. Some of the keys by typing numbers instead of letters

    Original title: Sub-cles in Windows 2000

    I have reactivated a portable windows 2000 pro. I find that some of the keys produce a number rather than the letter, as 6 instead of o. That's if for a long time that I have used W 2000 I forgot how to reset the keyboard to letters only.

    In fact, this is not a function of Windows (2000 or another). It is a function of material of your laptop that remaps several keys to duplicate a NUMPAD on a smaller keyboard. In general, the feature is enabled or disabled with a Fn + NumLck key combination or (more rarely) a button dedicated to the NumLck .

    Not knowing the make/model of your real hardware makes it difficult to be more specific.
