Hi, I'm using an IBM laptop and when I type some letters, numbers come up instead. I don't think its a virus because the numbers are written on the bottom right of the keys. Is there anyway to turn this off?

A:Numbers being typed instead of letters

You obviously have the NumLock engaged, turn it off. Since I don't know the keyboard of the machine, I can't be more specific, but it's probably a function key sequence.

HELP!!, Just recently my system thinks my keyboards letters are numbers, though this only happens when I attempt to play a game. I have run the MSKEY and the raw data is just numbers. I am running Winodows 7, on a Dell XPS 420 desktop. I replaced the keyboard in an attempt to see if it was the old KB and no change. Scroll lock is off, and the KB has no FCN button. I also have tried using F11 and F12 as this sometimes works for laptops. ANYONE out there that can help or has any ideas, your response is much appreciated!!

Welcome to TSF.

This question should not be posted here. It will be moved.

I think it's probably the keyboard layout. Try going to Start->Settings->Control Panel and double click on Regional and Language Options. Make sure the Regional Options tab is set to English. Then go to the Languages tab and click on Details button. Make sure that the Keyboard has US under it.

Hi Tech Support Guy forums!

I am very grateful for the services you have provided to everyone on the internet!

I am currently working with a Windows XP Laptop and am trying to get access to my wireless internet connection.

I am renting a room so I cannot set the wireless password. The password is longer than the number of numbers I can put into my PIN password when I automatically connect to the service via my wireless manager (only 8 numbers/letters).

The error box that pops up once I attempt exceed my 8 digit limit is (to finish entering the entire password):

"Wi-FI protected Set-up Wizard:
Check sum validation failed for PIN entered"

If there is some software update or anything I can do to let me type the full password, please let me know!

Thank you for your time!

A:Wireless PIN only accept up to 8 numbers/letters.

The WPS pin is diffrent from the wireless security key. It requires you physicly press a button on the router and on the adapter to connect. I wouldnt use this, they key you have is most likley the WPA or WEP key.

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.

I have sought a solution for this problem for a few weeks and cannot find one.

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.

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 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

Help! I have to show a group of school kids how to do this but I haven't used Access in years so don't know how to do it myself :s

For an Access project I need to be able to generate a unique student ID, which combines letters from the students name with a sequential number that is always one more than the highest currently in use. I have a forename field so I plan on using the first two letters of the forename plus a unique number. Is it possible to auto ID this?

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Access - Create unique ID combining letters and numbers

Off the top of my head I can't think of one. My suggestion would be to create a field that concatenates the first two letters from the forename field with an autonumber field. The autonumber field will give you your sequential numbers and the concatenate field will give your unique identifiers.

They aren't "taking up memory", they are taking up hard drive space, which isn't the same thing.

Hello everyone, I have had several folders with random numbers and letters on my computer for quite some time now. They're located in the C:\(Username)\App Data\Local folder. There's a few folders that have {FFF9808001018839} or something similar to that. When I click on them, they don't have anything in it. Some have another folder or two, but there's nothing in them either. I don't why they're on here or I should delete them or not.

I'd like to know what kind of folders are safe to have and what are not. I'm worried I may delete something that's important to my system. Before I delete anything, I do research online and I don't delete it unless I'm 100% sure that I have to. Some of things on here, may be from downloading music, programs, and videos. But none of them are on my computer any longer and I'm afraid there could be some things that shouldn't be on here.
(My computer is always running fine and there not affecting anything. It's just annoying to see all of them there and I would like to have my computer as clean as I could have it).

The other question or issue I have is that my computer seems to have the stock name on it. Three numbers and two letters. For instance my documents and files that I create are saved under C:\454HX\Documents\English Essay

That's not what it is of course, but it's similar. It's really annoying to have because it makes me feel like it's not personal. Yes, I know to go the Control Panel and Username and Account Settings. I have ch... Read more

A:Folders with random numbers and letters. Changing Computer name?

The folders you are finding in the AppData folder are just temporary folders used for things such as installations. It won't do you any harm to delete 'em, obviously because they are empty, but it also won't harm you to just leave them. If you are worried, just make sure you have an Anti-Virus with Real-time scanning. Do a full scan with Malwarebytes too, its more effective than other solutions.

I do not understand your second problem much. Are you trying to say that your User account folder in C:/Users/ has a different name than your User name? And does your real proper User Name show up in the Control Panel?

Hi...I have an Acer AO255 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)`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`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.

A:Hard drives with unknown folders that contains random Numbers & Letters

Unless you can find out what is creating these files/folders you won't be able to do much about where they get saved. Are they folders? or files? some files with random letters and numbers can often be attributed to an infection, but there can also be a few files of this nature that are legitimate and harmless. If you want to delete them and access is denied you can take ownership and they will then be deletable.

Let us see a DDS log as that may give some clues as to the nature of these files/folders and with a little help from us we may be able to figure out there origin.
Please go Here and follow the instructions to run DDS, then Copy and Paste both the logs into your next reply. You need not run HJT or GMER.

I've used Word 2007's Multilevel List feature many times, but only with numbers (I'm very comfortable with setting up the lists and they've always worked in the past). I now need to do a mixture of numbers and letters on one level and I can't seem to make that happen. For example, Level 3 might typically be 1.1.1, but my client wants 1.1.A. Now, I can make that happen on Level 3 without a problem. The issue starts in Level 4. For example, say I had worked my way down in the document from 1.1.A to 1.1.C and I wanted to insert a Level 4 after this 1.1.C. I would need it to automatically insert a 1.1.C.1, and I can't seem to make that happen when I'm setting up the list. It always wants to change the entire list to either all numbers or all letters.

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of

"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this

behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

What is the old hardware you are using?
What is the driver you downloaded?

I have found a program that may be able to help but I have never used it.

I've had this dsl modem for a couple years now and have always to my knowledge been able to use it via only one ip number.i've been streaming video using webcamxp and other software/.today my modem began acting stupid by disconnecting once an hour and if I shut off pc of at all,i wind up having to manually reset the modem by unplugging it for a few seconds and then back in again.i eventually noticed that while the webcam is streaming video ,my lan connection on the pc shows the ip number i'm familiar with while my dsl modem shows one that's new(so to speak) I entered both ip numbers in to the webcamxp and found that the modem streams using either ip number..if I go to the what's my ipnumber site,it will display whichever number I have entered in to the webcamxp software//.is it normal for a modem to use 2 numbers as I don't believe this has occurred in my case before.i'm wondering if it has to do with the modem suddenly disconnecting now and then and too,having to reset it everytime I boot.i have att dsl ,no live landline just dead phone cord from the modem to the wall.

If you have other devices and they also loose internet connection at the same time, I would recommend contacting AT&T.
