I have had this problem before the keyboard in this model does this ofter dirt and crumbs have gotten into the keyboard. For me the laptop was under warranty and had the keyboard replaced. most-likely you will have to replace the keyboard. You can try to remove the keyboard from the laptop, hold the keyboard upside down and using a can of air to blow out the dirt.

You use the number pad as follows: your index middle and ring finger rest on the 4, 5, and 6 keys. The index finger reaches up or down to use the 7, 4, 1 keys. The middle finger uses the 8, 5, 2 keys. And the ring finger uses the 9, 6, 3 keys. And the thumb is for the 0.
1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.
2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.
3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.
4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again
1 = System is connected and working
A = Cap locks On= Cap lock is on. Off = Cap lock is off.
F = Function Key usage. On = I'm going to use the alternative fuctions of the F keys as programmed in the Keyboard settings. Off = Your using the standard features of the F keys.
With the new keyboards they don't use lights to indicate what is on or off. While pressing the Caps Lock key , look at the right lower side of your monitor and it will show Caps Lock ON or Caps Lock OFF. Just have to get use to looking at the monitor. Bud
I did this all with a USB keyboard and mouse by the way.
OK, so now that I can actually use them, I start to test out the touchpad and keyboard and had the same problem all you lot did. I looked at the keys which were giving me greif and saw that they are all keys that had alternate settings when used with the function (fn) key. Turns out that there was a fn lock on the keyboard which I cleared by holding the fn key and pressing f11. This turned off a little LED just above the "9" key and voila, working laptop again.
To test if this is the problem with your laptop, press and hold down the "fn" key and press any of the keys which are coming up incorrectly. If while holding it down (cancelling out the lock, like how shift and caps lock work) the correct character appears on screen, then you too are suffering from funct-itis (tm)
