737NG FMC Number Keyboard Problem

Recommended Posts

First, I am sorry if this has been answered somewhere before I did a couple of searches but did not find anything that addressed it.The '.' '0' '+/-' keys on the FMC when pressed return the number of the key directly above it (i.e. '7' '8' '9').I have the 737NG (600/700) and the 747NG (800/900) installed and I have installed the 1.3 service pack and the model update. I have FS Passengers installed as well. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate and of course FS 2004.I am guessing that I probably did something incorrectly when I reinstalled 737NG so I am going to try to reinstall again from scratch to check it out while I wait to see if anyone has some ideas.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

This sounds like the FMC has been resized - its height or width proportions may have been changed. Try dragging top or bottom edges of the FMC to reduce (or perhaps increase) its height. An out of proportion FMC will cause the keys to generate incorrect characters. Do you have a widescreen monitor? That might possibly change the height/width proportions.Alex Reid

That is possible, I do have a widescreen monitor. I did try and change the size but still no luck. The 1 2 3 keys work the 4 5 6 keys generate 1 2 3, and the 7 8 9 keys generate 4 5 6, etc. I will try a different overall screen size and see if that does anything.

OK, I got it now. You were correct it is a screen size issue. I had my screen at 1360 x 768. I changed it to 1280 x 900 and it is working fine now.Thanks very much for the pointers guys.
