    Num lk wasn't selected, but I selected/deselected just to be sure. It still does the same. Q key = 1Q, W key = 2W, E key = 3E. Consequently, if I stike the1 key = Q1, 2 key = W2

    I had the sam eproblem. It appeared after my son spilled water on the laptop. I ended up replacing the motherboard, since the troubleshooting guide said so.

Keys are not matching up . When i type certain letters, it displays numbers. Example. press k, and displays 2. Must hold funtion key to get correct letter.

Your number lock is on. Look for a small picture that looks like a calculator on your keyboard keys (possibly on one of the F keys at the top). Press the Fn key plus the key with the calculator pic to turn number lock off.

Some of the keys on the keyboard when pressed display the wrong letter/number/character. i have changed the keyboard but its still a problem.

First thing I would check would be the "NUM LOCK" key. It may be activated via the function (FN) key on the lower left of the keyboard. In other words, hold down the FN key and hit (NMLK) which should be somewhere along the top edge on the right side.

I have a problem with the keyboard on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. The key lock is not on but when I type numbers, I get letters as well. e.g. 1q 2w 3e 4r 5 6 7u 8i 9o 0p I also get numbers when I type...

Look if your Num Lock is on, then turn it off. Try also another keyboard, to see if the problem presists.
I think it's a very little thing, but i can't help you more unless i see it.

Good Luck :)

Keyboard keys are including numbers with it

Hello Rich,
This happens when the nubmers which are on the alphabet keys are enabled. You can stop this by holding Fn key on the notebook then press Scroll lock once. This will disable these number.
