Hello anyone !

Somehow I locked my G,H, Bckspc & ' keys on my HP Pavillion N5445
Not sure how I did it...hit a combination of keys by mistake....my problem is I don't have my Owners manuals to check out what I can do to correct it. Anyone else ever have this happen?? Any help would be appreciated !!

Thanks !

Have you tried unplugging the power and removing the battery?

I haven't seen this problem caused by key combo (could happen) usually a liquid spill is what I have seen..

Just remembered:
Usually laptops have a FN key or something in the lower left corner. It is color coded, and keys on the keyboard are color coded to match. There is a way to turn on NUMLOCK while holding this key down. Your Number pad is part of the gh keys I believe. You should also have an led lit telling you that numlock is on. This will make that part of the keyboard act as a 10 key number pad. Just read the keys to find out which key combo with FN to push.
