Re: Problems With My Computer Keyboard
Have you tried just turning on NVDA keyboard describer mode (NVDA-1), and pressing some of the upper row buttons on your laptop keyboard, usually the ones on the right hand side? One of them should show up as numlock. If none do, find your FN key, which is usually one of the keys to the left of your space bar, or at the bottom left of the keyboard. It will be the one that isn't control, windows, or alt. Find that FN key, hold it down, and try those upper right keys again until you find numlock.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
After you figure out what key, or key combination with FN, is the numlock, turn off key describer mode, and press that key/key combination. If it doesn't help, press it again. If that doesn't help, try pressing it/them with shift.
I suggest trying this while in notepad or the like, so you can actually be entering text somewhere.
It is possible, though unlikely I should think, that the numlock on your laptop keyboard is not synchronized to the numlock on your external keyboard. I have only rarely actually seen that behavior, and never with a normal external keyboard only with standalone numpads, but I imagine there might be a circumstance where this happens in some od configuration of laptop.

You've got your numlock pressed, it sounds like. I have no idea where
