Num Lock is not working

Model : satellite P755

 

My number section on my computer does not work even when the num lock is on it makes this "beep" sound when I turn it off/on but the numbers do not work

 

 

and on a side note if any one knows how to turn on the LED lights near the power button( not the keyboard part that part works on my computer) I would be most grateful.

What's your full model number? It should be on a label on the bottom. If there's nothing after "P755," give me the model-part number.

Satellite P755-S5184

 

 

That sure sounds like a hardware problem. But as a matter of curiosity, I wonder if the numeric keyboard can be turned on this way.

 

- Download the attached Numlock.txt file.

- Change the .txt extension to .vbs, so the the file name becomes Numlock.vbs.

- Double-click that in Windows Explorer to execute it.

 

Does that toggle the state of the ten-key keyboard? What about the light?

In Internet Explorer, you would right-click the attachment and click Save target as in the pop-up menu. Pay attention to where you put the file.

Re: Num Lock is not working

Hello, I have a Satellite E55-A5114 and I am also having a problem with the numeric key pad not work. The numlock will not engage.

 

Can you help with this? I am currently running Windows 10.

@Jerry_Lippey I don't know if the Numlock.txt file is the same solution for my system, which is a Satellite E55-A5114 with Windows 10.

 

However, I tried to download it and it won't let me. When I right click it only opens and does not give me the option to download it.

 

Thanks for you assistance.

A right-click in any browser should give you a context menu. In IE, you would choose Save target as...
