NUMBER LOCK You have press the NumLk key (number lock) and this changes the right hand keys to a number pad. Press the NumLk key (also doubles as the ScrLk key to toggle the Number lock). it is near the F12 function key.

Unexpected charactersDisable the numeric keypad — Press <Num Lk> to disable the numeric keypad if numbers are displayed instead of letters. Verify that the numbers lock light is not lit."
The num lock has been pressed.
I don't know which Fn key you need to press to turn off the number lock. Look at the Fn key for a symbol - number pad, press this and it should release the number lock.
Have a look at your manual for this infomation.
Try hooking up and external key board see if that works ok, and if it does you may want to try to find a new or used key board for your laptop. The key board may be shot, It should be fairly easy to change to a new board, Hopefully That will help you diag. the problem..
Would these be keys that can also be used to enter numbers? do they have numbers on them as well as letters ? If so I'm thinking that there is some sort of Num. Lock activated (perhaps via an FN key ?) Can you tell us more about the laptop, make and model ?
