    Number 6 key not working on my laptop


    I've come across a problem with my laptop recently - the number 6 key on the internal keyboard will not do anything on my computer. It's not stuck down or anything, and when I shut down and start the computer again, when prompted for a pin, a number of 6s will be spammed by itself and then the key will not work. It can't be hardware can it, since the 6s previously entered all are suddenly spammed on startup?


    I have used the on-screen keyboard and the 6 works from there. I have run windows on command prompt only and when I'm asked to sign in the six spamming happens again (and the key again fails to work). I have also run a malware scan and nothing shows up just to be extra sure. Is this something which can be fixed?


    I am running Windows 10 1809, with a Lenovo laptop.

    :)

    number keys not working in keyboard

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the keyboard does not function as you expected. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise due to driver conflicts or changes in the settings.

    I suggest you to try the same keyboard with a different computer and make sure that the keyboard is working fine with other computers. I would also suggest you to check whether you are able to access the same keys using the On Screen keyboard provided
    in Windows 10. Please check whether the Number lock indicator is working properly.

    As a basic troubleshooting step, I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Hardware and Devices.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to press the
    Windows key + space to change the layout and check if it selected as US English.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
