I have a sony vaio. Some keys on right hand side have little numbers. If I type for example the letter "o" it will type the number 6. i would have to press the Fn key along with the key so i can type the letter.

Which is it? Not typing letters or not typing numbers?
For your information there is an Fn+Fx key combination that activate the overlaid numeric keypad (your calculator). Figure out which function key to use with the Fn key.
Did you check the keypad for alternate keys.
For example net books, the number keys on the right side has an alter key on the some letters like the image below. when you accidentally press the [Fn] key, Numbers are written instead of letters..
You are in Num Lk mode. To leave this mode, press the NumLk key again, a green LED (1) will go off indicating you are no longer in this mode. The Num Lk key usually is in upper right corner of the keyboard.
It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.
It appears that the function key is stuck on. try an external keyboard. if the external keyboard has the same problem its an issue with windows but if not you could be looking at a replacement keyboard. hope this helps Peter
