Laptop numeric keypad is causing erroneous keystrokes

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am using HP Pavilion DV7 laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed in it. I never faced any problem so far.

But, from this week onwards the number keypad started behaving strangely. When I type numbers using the top row of the keypad no issues. But, when I am using number keypad on the right side of the keyboard, it is not printing the numbers instead all strange things happening. For example, when I type '2', it is typing 72 and opening help window. When I type 3 it is printing some special characters.

What could be the problem? Is there any settings somewhere which got messed up? Any help in this regard is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hello Ferdinand,

I believe that issue is caused by NumLK key. NumLK key causes the right side keys to generate erroneous results. Try disabling numLK if enabled and vice-versa.

Also there could be a chance that Keyboard is switched to another language, try changing it to operating system language of the region/area where it is bought.

Finally check your keyboard that if any key is stuck, mostly shift or ctrl.

Good luck..!!
