External keyboard messing up Gateway settings

I am using an external keyboard(Logitech ex100) for my Gateway M series laptop. When i remove the usb from my laptop and want to roam in my house using only the laptop, I have to restore the settings on my laptop. Example being; on my laptop keyboard, the key o has a little number as well(6) when i press, instead of o coming up, 6 comes up. when the keys are pressed on my laptop keyboard, the letters do not come up, the smaller number shows. Happens on the numbers as well. 0 will show / etc.....
How can i resolve without having to restore the settings each time?

You have to unlock the FN key on your keyboard. It seems to be locked in place. I had the same problem and resolved it by looking for a "num lock" , "function lock" or actual blue image of a lock on the keys. Mine is located under the "Scroll" button. Press this along with the FN and your keyboard should go back to normal

You can test it with an external USB keyboard. If the external USB keyboard works good with this laptop, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard (it is dying).

Use the on screen keyboard. If it works then your external keyboard is bad. You can also use a usb keyboard - plug it in to an available usb port.

It's an internal problem. If ocurring after messing with the keyboard the solution is to turn off the asus, unplug the battery, plug it again and turn on. It happens in both 700 and 900 models.
