I have a eee PC G surf/Linux and the keyboard is suddenly acting a
little strange. When I hit the 1 key its displays on the screen 21, and
then I hit the number 3 key and it displays 43 and most number keys are
acting like this.

Sounds like your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Try booting into safe mode and see if the keyboard acts the same way. Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal. If it is ok in safe mode then run your virus scan.
Your numlock is turned on. There is more than one way to turn it off.Find a USB keyboard, and plug it in. Then push the numlock key on the USB keyboard to turn it off.OR, if you don't have access to one of those, hold down the fn key (lower left hand corner of the keyboard) and press the key with numlock or number lock written on or near it.
The keyboard takes a lot of abuse and as durable as it is, they will eventually wear out. It is a very inexpensive part to replace and does not require a lot of skill. The fact that the touch pad is acting up could indicate that they are interconnected. I would replace both. The Touch pad is a more involved part to replace and I would suggest you get some help or pay to have it replaced.
You can order them off of sites like eBay, then watch a YouTube video on how to do it.
Linux is a free distributable operating system. You can download and burn it on disk like Ubuntu. You can go ahead and install the OS on your computer once again. The installation of Linux is very easy and you can go through the wizard and complete it.
Must be common problem. Linux is the operating system
yes you just lost linux, it needs re-doing but with an external CD ROM drive unless it has a partition
for recovery in which either F10 key will do it or another key check the manual for RECOVERY of operating system its not a big problme but it takes few hours to solve
