Wired keyboard usually do not have locks, However some wireless keyboard do. A switch is usually on the top side of the keyboard that slides back and forth.
However you may also be seeing "Caps Lock" which means the Caps lock key is engaged. Simply press the "Caps Lock" key again to unlock it. The caps lock key is located at the left side of the keyboard.
The number lock key has been pressed, press the NumLk key to turn off the number keys. There is a LED light that turns on when the NumLk key is press, just like the Caps lock key.
The upside down display is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.
There shoudl be a Caps Lock button on your keyboard....look on the left side of your keyboard between the Tab and Shift buttons.
Also, one way to see if your Caps Lock is on is to look on your keyboard, typically in the upper right hand corner and look for a light eminating from your keyboard and it should look like the letter A inside of an image of a palock, if the light is on then Caps Lock is on, just hit the Caps Lock key to turn off.
