What to do when your Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo laptop keypad types different characters?
If you suddenly find that your laptop is displaying something completely different from what you are actually typing on the keypad, don’t panic – just hold down the <Fn> Key on the keypad and hit the <Num Lock> key – that will fix the problem! This generally works on HP & Dell laptops.
If that does not work, try with the <Shift> key and <Numlock> key combination. This is for those with IBM or Lenovo laptops.
For some laptops, you can also try with the <Ctrl> + <Shift> keys combination.
