Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.

    i have the same problem, and that isn't working for me. the only extra inforation i can give is above the keyboard, (where you can see if you have caps lock, connected to wifi, etc) the little lock with the number 9 is showing.

Hello, try to find a key on your keyboard that is named num lock (maybe with blue text.)
hold FN and push the num lock button and the proglem should be gone.

Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.
