Hi All, I hope someone here can help me as I can't go on with this crazy machine any longer...

My machine is a 2012 Sony Vaio, I've just updated my system specs. What happens is the following:

The fan runs for no apparent reason. It just takes off, loud and blowing out hot air even though the machine is just ticking over, more noisy than it ever used to be. As I'm just writing this, it's racing away

The track-pad sticks and just generally plays up, I've attached two screenshots, the first as I was updating my system specs (writing specs or moving the pointer around, and it decides to highlight a load), the second as I was uploading that first screenshot (I was clicking on 'manage attachments'). Other times the pointer shoots around all over, no corelation to my hand movements, also when I go to tap the pad, the pointer flies off.

Comodo Dragon has been hanging, sticking, not-responding.

Generally my machine has been performing horribly, so I performed all the operations below but nothing has helped:

EAM runs its regular scans, every couple of days, finds nothing
MBAM finds nothing,
MBAR clean
SAS clean
Hitman Pro default, clean
Following Chiron's suggestions on TechSupportAlert:
Kaspersky TDSS Killer clean
Comodo Cleaning Essentials clean
Glary Utilities Pro default scan and fix
I then ran SFC /scannow and everything is fine,

A:My keypad can't be used.

Do you have a seperate USB number pad or are you talking about the number pad attached to your keyboard? If you have a seperate USB number pad then you may need to install its driver. If you are talking about a number pad attached to a keyboard and only the number pad does not work then the keyboard is broken and needs to be replace or you need to push Num Lock to use the number keys.

I use the 4 digit PIN login for Win 10. In the past, I would get the small 10 digit number keypad when I touched the PIN input box on the logon screen. Lately, on all my devices, the small keypad has been replaced by the full on screen keyboard when I touch the PIN input box on the logon screen. I've found a number of folks with the same issue, but no resolution.

Very annoying.

Anyone know how to get back to the small keypad?

Q: Keypad

What is the registry setting to default the keypad to off. I use an external mouse and each session I have to disable it with "Fn+F10"

A:Keypad

"What is the registry setting to default the keypad to off"

Using an external mouse does not allow you to run Windows without using the keypad!

I guess you mean't to say "touchpad" which is the equivalent of a mouse - right?
Well you can disable the touchpad permanently in one of two ways:

1. By setting it disabled in the touchpad settings: Control Panel >> Mouse
There should be an option in there to "Disable touchpad when an external mouse is detected".

2. By disabling the touchpad driver in Device Manager. Right-click & choose "Disable".
Do not uninstall this driver or Windows will just re-install it when you restart.

On startup there is a numeric on screen keypad, in the top left on screen the owner enters the 4 digit pin and all is well but she want to get rid of it and have no login password.
 
I am not sure if its even a win 8 product as it doesn't look like it belongs on the screen.
I have been into Accounts / Sign options / the screen has the PIN sign in quickly with a four digit number but doesn't have the Remove button as an option.
 
Not wanting to add another pin i haven't taken it any further.
 
Have run Kaspersky Rescue disk found nothing, MBAM found some PUP's and Adaware  found some more. All removed.

Ok, so i decided to add a keypad to my computer when powered on.

Heres the keypad i found http://www.surplussales.com/Switches/SWPushB-1.html

Scroll to the bottom.

Will this keypad be compadible with a computer? It doesnt give me enough information! Im assuming its got the same little guages on the back like other switches i use (Military SPST). I simply need this keypad to recognise a combination of keys and then change its circuit lines to ON instead of OFF it is imperitive that it never EVER goes to ON unless that combination is entered.

Does anyone have any advice for me? Thanks

System:
Compaq Presario C714NR
OS:
Win XP SP3
Hardware:
Targus PAUK 10U Keypad.
Desired Effect:
When I use the keypad I donít want the laptop keyboard num lock to engage.
Whats happening:
When the keypad is being used the laptop num lock engages so that the key pressed on the keypad will function as a number, depressed then the num lock disengages. (This happens with each key press, in the blink of an eye.)
This is how it is supposed to work.

But there is an issue with this when youíre working within an RVP session.
Within the RVP session the keypad works like it would if the num lock is off, (arrows work). But if you hold the number down it will repeat the number as if you were holding the number down with num lock in the on position.
Now, if you turn the num lock on, on the laptop keyboard, the keypad will function normally, but the keypad on the laptop will also start functioning.
Normal keyboard functions are disabled until you turn num lock off.

The short and sweet.
I want to be able to use the keypad and keyboard at the same time with in an RVP session.
I have tried using the Targus USBv31 patch.
I think this is used for when the keypad will not function with out the num lock on in normal useÖ.I do not have this issue.

I'm ready to kill the person that invented this virus that has hit me three times in as many weeks. XP Total Security 2011, has caused me more loss of mind and m ental stablity then anything in my life. this is what it does before actually infecting my machine

It disables my firewall
It disables my automatic updates and locks AU to off/disabled, I have to use the run command to actually activate the dll to turn on Automatic Updates
It disables my current anytivirus protection, (Microsfot Secuirity Essentials)

Then when viewing DeviantART, my internet windows dies, all its tabs die as well. first thing I run is MSE, as I am running it a fake Windows Security Center pops up saying I am infected. Thankfully so far MSE has found and supposdely removed the things it has found. Even on start up it finds the EXACT same things as it found during the scan, two or three items. I have the DDS logs, but sadly when trying ot run the GMER scanner, I got hit with the Blue Screen of Death, this virus will not quit. and I've lots more braincells fighting a uphill battle with this thing. I even ran rkill, it says it found and killed a proxy connection, which I never set. It leaves a RK_Proxy reg key on my desktop when done, I merly deleted it, as I never set a proxy, so merging will do little good.

I want this machine cleaned, and the virus properly killed and all my backdoors sealed.

Can someone please help me with my query with the NUMLOCK keypad?

I have Dell Inspiron 3521 i5 - 64 Bit - Windows 7 and the issue here is that, from last three days, the number keypad(on the right handside) on my lappy isn't working, when I press NumLock it beeps one sound and when repress the same key again, it rebeeps with different sound. Why so?
e.g.
First time, when I press NUMLOCK key, it beeps with one sound and when repress it again, it beeps with another sound. What does that mean?


I'm not sure, that may have pressed any key which is not allowing me to use Number keypad on the right side.

Hi,  My HP Omen recently has been stuffing up a lot lately. I sent it in to HP after the screen had popped out. I thought they had fixed it but as soon as I opened my laptop when they sent it back, it happened again. I have to just push it back in now as I cannot wait another month for them to fix it AGAIN. Another problem is the mouse and touchpad. On some days, they both work fine... everything is good, everything is efficient, BUT on most days my touchpad won't even show the pointer... like everything just went missing. My keypad does the same thing, it stops typing. I have to constantly reboot my computer, taking out the AC and battery and reinstalling the touchpad driver. Rebooting the computer and reinstalling the driver used to work but now, it won't even let me go 5 minutes without "crashing". I'm also using an external mouse right now but I need to have access to my touchpad.   Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

I just got a new laptop (Dell inspiron 1000) with WinXP Home SP2. I have a usb numeric keypad--Solidtek USB NumPad--that I had used with my old laptop (winxp home) and had no problems.

With my new laptop, I have to delete and reinstall the keypad every time I start my computer. WinXP recognizes that it's connected but shows a question mark in the device list and says there's a problem. It works fine after I uninstall and reinstall it. Any suggestions? (I tried looking for an

A few days ago the 9 key at the top of my laptop keypad stopped working, meaning I have to use the number pad on the right hand side and can't use the bracket symbol. There has been no physical damage to the laptop itself, it just didn't work after it had been in hibernation mode. Then the 8 key at the top stopped working, followed by the 6, then the 1 on the number pad, then the left hand shift button, the F8, and the print screen shot button just stopped working.

Since then I have had to make-do using Word symbols, and a combination of the number pad and the top row of numbers. I can't think of any reason why this would happen - it was completely out of the blue!

Any answers would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

But when she accesses her remote desktop at work, it doesn't send numbers to the apps she's running on her work desktop.

Hi, I was wondering if a buy a usb numeric keypad would I be able to use it in conjuction with my normal desktop keypad and if so would it replace or duplicate the keyboards num pad or would the keys be assignable to other function in say a flight sim for instance.

I normally play flight sims and find it awkward to have to reach across may chest to use the keyboards numpad as it is designed for right hand use. When I am flying I always have my right hand on the control stick so taking it off to use radar functions assigned to the numpad is a pain. I'd like to keep the keyboard assignments as standard as possible so I was wondering if I could use a numeric keypad to replace the keyboard numpad so I could situate it on my left side so I would then only have to take my hand off the throttle unit if I wanted to manipulate my radar.

Also on a side note, would adding a usb numeric keypad add new keys that could be assigned to functions? Is it possible to use 2 keyboard on one machine or do they always just replicate each others functions.

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

The keypad on my little Lenovo B590 has lost the ability to have the Numbers Lock (Num Lock) default to the on position when I first boot the computer which means to get the keypad to give me numbers, I first have to press the Num Lock key. I've looked all over the computer, including the UEFI, trying to find the setting that will make it default on. Any clue as to where I can find it?

Installed MS Ergo Keyboard 4000 & software. This keyboard was fully functional on another system previously. Numeric keypad on new emachines desktop machine works only when logging on to Windows and then does not register numbers or functions on any other software or on web.

When system was ~3 weeks old, I downloaded & installeded free REVO Uninstaller utility and removed all pre-loaded crapware, incl. Microsoft "trial" Office products and "trial" Norton 360. Downloaded & installed AVAST! anti-virus.

Then downloaded & installed free CCleaner utility & cleaned registry, then defragged.

I do not remember if numeric keypad worked prior to these changes or not.

So, I uninstalled MS Ergo keyboard software and installed OEM emachines keyboard. Still no numeric keypad functionality, except logging on to Windows.

Any one know how the keypad ribbon connects to the mobo on a laptop?

The end of the ribbon has nothing attached to it (I've got it disconnected, but can't tell if it's a snap-in, or if it was a wedge/pinch-type lock. The device was very tiny.)

Pic attached. The piece below the tweezers is the locking piece. I tried to snap it in without the ribbon in place - to dry fit, but it appears to be only a 'wedge', of sorts...

You need to go into your CMOS settings (sometimes called "Setup"). This is when you first start your computer. Usually, you hit the "del" key right when the computer is first starting up. Pay attention when it first starts and it should tell you how to access the "Setup". Go to either "Standard CMOS setting" or "Advanced Settings" (I can't remember which one right now) and it will let you set it to the way you want it.

Hi all. I'm confused. How do you do ALT codes without the numeric keypad? I mean the Fn key is there, but then what? I have since found that you can insert them via the on screen touch keyboard, but surely you can still do this on the keyboard right? What I want to type is ť which is usually Fn + ALT + 130. I contacted HP support who had no idea what-so-ever. I've done a search of the site and couldn't find anything either. Anyone got any answers? Thanks, Pony

Hello Pony, I don't have an answer to make the keyboard create a numpad but I read about adding Scripts to turn certain keys into the numpad. I have not used those.I do use a work around that will hopefully help a little. Turn on the On Screen Keyboard.Type in the Search bar Run and select it.Type the letters OSK and hit Enter.When the keyboard opens, click on Options.  When the dialog box opens, tick the box for Turn on Numeric Keypad.Hit OK.  Select the Numlock key on the on screen keyboard to show the numpad.One the physical keyboard, hold the Alt key down and click on 0233 of the On Screen Numpad.( I just use the Alt key shortcuts rather than Fn+Alt. Its just easier)   Hope that helps.

OK, I bought this instead of a thinkpad because I thought I was getting more computer. I wish I'd have saved the money because I'm so close to smashing this piece of junk into little bits. The keypad constantly jumps the cursor around especially for the first 1/2 hour or so upon start  up. I read that pressing CTRL simultaneously fixes this and it will on occasion but I'd rather it not happen at all. Is there a fix for this. This product is terrible because of this. Also, it seems to always be "thinking" (the blue circle keeps spinning even though I'm not doing anything). This seems to make the cursor lag and jump around to. I'm not even on the internet when this happens. I was litterally in the middle of the ocean on a ship with no internet so I guess it was just trying to get me to jump over the side. What the hell is with this thing?

I have an HP Pavilion dv-6 2155dx laptop. Windows 7. It's worked fine until recently. The number keypad has stopped working. The ON/OFF bell seems to work ok but the keypad does not work correctly. It does "strange" things now. Some keys do "something" and others do not as follows:

/ types a slash
* types an asterisk
- types a minus sign
+ types a plus sign
ENTER seems to be ok
7, 8, 9, 4, 6, 1, 2, 3, DEL do nothing
5 UNhighlights anything highlighted in a browser search bar. If nothing is highlighted then 5 does one of several things: brings up PAGE NAVIGATION option, moves flashing cursor one space to left OR causes flashing cursor to disappear altogether.
0 seems to now and then cause the flashing cursor to disappear. Briefly, the function keys seem to work but the number keys do not. YES, I know how to turn the NUM LOCK on and off. YES, I have rebooted many times to no avail.

I use a Logitech wireless keyboard with my laptop and the keypad problem is exactly the same on both the wireless keypad and the laptop keypad.

This has got to be something easy that I probably accidentally screwed up. I have searched online for a solution to no avail. I have tried to go into BIOS but directions I found did not get me to menus described to me. People have told me that I can turn the keypad ON and OFF from the BIOS but I see no such option in my BIOS. Hopefully someone can set me straight. Thanks in advance!

Hi BillGreuling, and welcome to TSF.

Not sure but try this before we start getting too deep.


Run the System File Checker:
Click Start >> Run >> Type sfc /scannow (note space after sfc), then click OK.
You may be asked to insert your Windows disc.

If when you insert your disc, it auto starts, close it down so that you can see the command window.

The process may take quite a while, be patient and wait until you see a new line which should say "C:\Documents and Settings\****>

(**** being your name or computer name.)

Then reboot and let me know if this solved your problem.

Someone at work is using a Desktop running XP Pro with all current updates. She uses the numeric keypad a lot for data entry into different programs. Every so often, pressing any of the number keys on the keypad will cause the calculator app to launch and the numbers go into the calculator. The number keys across the top row of the main keyboard still work normally. Toggling the num lock key does not help any. Unplugging and re-plugging in the USB keyboard restores normal operation.

I've had the ThinkCentre M93 since July 2014. I run it constantly and have only shut it down a dozen times. When I first went to restart the computer, it only got as far as the Lenovo splash page. It would freeze, I would hold the power-on button for seven seconds, it would shut down. Doing this three or four times, and finally it would start windows and I could use the pc again. Suffice it to say, because of this problem, I rarely turn off the machine.A couple of times I used the OS Recovery Disc that I got with the pc purchase. It has helped a few times.But I feel like there is no true solution yet. Everything I try that works is really just luck. Anyone else having this issue? And found a solution yet? Thanks.

Tried to search for this first so if it's been answered I apologize.

My work recently upgraded my laptop from Win XP Pro x86 to Win 7 Pro x64 and this is when this issue started happening:

I have a Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard, Keypad and Mouse combo set and every once in a while they will freeze for about 2 minutes and during that time I can't use any of them to interact with the computer. After about 2 minutes it seems like they unfreeze and go back to working normally.

I'm not really sure what the issue is because if I type keys and move the mouse, etc while the screen is frozen, all of the keys I pressed are processed immediately after the computer unfreezes...

If that doesn't make sense let me know and I'll try to re-word it. Thanks for your help, this is really frustrating me as it happens several times a day now.

The Hidden Numeric Keypad on Your Laptop

Laptop keyboards would often come without a "dedicated" numeric keypad on the right unlike most common desktop keyboards.



While it is always an option to purchase a separate numeric keypad, laptops do come with an "embedded" numeric keypad on its own keyboard.



The numeric keypad on laptops is not really "hidden", but it can go easily unnoticed for new owners. Do not be ashamed, this is a fairly common oversight.

To use the embedded numeric keypad on your laptop, follow this 8-step guide:
The Hidden Numeric Keypad on Your Laptop - For Dummies

For ASUS laptop owners:
To activate numeric keypad mode (step 5), press [Fn] + [Num Lk].

A:The Hidden Numeric Keypad / Cursors on Your Laptop

Cursor Keys Using the Hidden Numeric Keypad
(For ASUS laptop owners)

In addition to being a hidden numeric keypad, some of its keys can also be used as alternative cursors while Number Lock is ON or OFF.

8 = Up
K = Down
U = Left
O = Right

Number Lock OFF - Press [Fn] + [Cursor Key]
Up = [Fn] + [8]
Down = [Fn] + [K]
Left = [Fn] + [U]
Right = [Fn] + [O]

Number Lock ON - Press [Shift] + [Cursor Key]
Up = [Shift] + [8]
Down = [Shift] + [K]
Left = [Shift] + [U]
Right = [Shift] + [O]

Other laptop manufacturers may have a similar implementation on their hardware. Be sure to refer to the user manual for these convenient features.

Hey! I bought a KeyPad Calculator to use for my assignments on my laptop (MacBook Pro, Mac OS X 10.4), and while it works fine most of the time, whenever a little "GT" icon shows up in the upper right corner of the screen, I lose most of the main functions I bought the thing for.

What causes this to show up, how do I avoid it, and can I permanently disable whatever this feature does? And what, exactly, is this feature supposed to do? Is my keypad faulty??

Thanks for your help!!

hi,

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.

If you plug an external keyboard into the laptops USB connection, the keyboard works fine with out any problems

any body got any ideas /

thanks

ashley

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.
