To correct the number key issue:
Thinkpads allowed you to change the numlock status by hitting the left shift and 'ScrLk' key simultaneously.

You may need to re-install the audio drivers to correct your sound issue. Test your speakers on another unit.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
    Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Shift key plus the ScrLk (Scroll lock) key, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.
