HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.
Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.
This is a simple problem, due to the size of laptops, the
manufacturers cannot fit on a normal number pad as on a standard
keyboard, so what they do is use a function key to turn a portion of the
keyboard in to the number pad.
to get rid of this you need turn the 'number lock' off this may be a
single key or a combination.
for my laptop its:
press together; the function key (normally 'Fn' bottom left) and the
number lock key (Num Lock).
hope this sorts out the problem.

here is a small digram to help you
I have a hanns g 22" widepanel , I had the same problem with lockout. I had my monitor disc and looked on it, or in a manual if you still have it. Here is the combination I had to press and it worked. I pressed the arrow buttons and the menu button all together a few times and it unlocked. Try that!
Function Key Lock: Press the <「Volume -」, >「Volume +」and the 「Menu」buttons simultaneously to enable the Function Key Lock. When the Function Key Lock is enabled, only the Power button is active. Press the <「Volume -」, >「Volume +」and the 「Menu」buttons simultaneously again to unlock the function keys.
