Sounds like one of the Accessibility/Ease of Access options got turned on by accident.
In the Control Panel section choose: Change how the keyboard works.
Look at the Filter Keys option. Is it checked ON? If so, that's probably the cause of your problem.
I think if you uncheck Filter Keys your keyboard will go back to normal.
Or try rebooting with an external usb keyboard.
If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.
Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Try starting your pc in "Safe Mode" This will load the absolute lowest setting you laptop will run. See if it acts the same in safe mode as normal. If it does not, do a system restore back to an earlier date (a week or so) when this was functioning properly. If it does, try to log on to the mfg website and reinstall the keyboard driver for your laptop.
