Why can I only type numbers instead of letters on my Windows 7 Starter Acer netbook?
Question by Justjoan /

I’m quoting another person here. I’m having the same problem he is:

OK, I am having the same problem, but mine is a Acer netbook and it is only one day old! OS: Windows 7 Starter. Every key I hit is showing up a number. If I type “over” it is comes up as “2345”. I have unlocked the number lock, I have uninstalled the keyboard and still no luck.

    very glad to have found this. It was indeed the Constant Guard that I downloaded through Comcast. So glad it was not a virus or problem with my computer.

      Hello, check that scroll lock and number lock is is not enabled.  If you enable number lock, you are able to use the number pad.  If it is not, you will not.
