How To Undo HP DV7 Keyboard Numlock

DV7 Keyboard

On HP Pavillion DV7 and other laptops a weird key combo can make your laptop output numbers instead of letters. The affected keys are usually I, O, P, J, K, L and M. The keys pressed will usually give the numbers as seen below:

  • I = 5
  • O = 6
  • P = 7
  • J = 1
  • K = 2
  • L = 3

If this happens to you, the NumLock is turned on. To turn it off hold the [shift] key down and press [NumLock].

The solution is different on all types of laptops.

It is odd that this happens with the DV7 since it has its own dedicated keypad.
