Hi,
You have accidentally turned on the "Num Lock", all you have to do is hit the Num Lock key to return the keyboard to normal, it is located at the top right hand side of the keyboard.


Regards

IBM Thinkpad T30, MT2366 & MT2367 Hardware Maintenance Manual

http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/IBM/THINKPAD%20T30.PDF

Now,...I found this website that has the Users Manual for the IBM ThinkPad T30.

http://safemanuals.com/annexe_Install%20Guide_IBM_THINKPAD%20T30-_E.htm

You go to the right, where it has the orange bar, and ->User manual IBM ThinkPad T30 - Install Guide, in it.
Under this heading this is a PDF file icon. Under the icon it states -> Download the complete user guide
(484 Ko)
I clicked on it. It brings you to a page where you look at numbers that come tumbling down into 4 boxes.
You type the numbers as they come tumbling down, one by one in the box on the right.
(You'll see what I mean)
After the 4 numbers have been typed into that box, you go below, and click on Download the users guide.
I read their contract. You just use the down arrow on the right to scroll it down.
From reading it, it looks legit.
This is all I can tell you. I didn't download it, and don't know about it. Choice is yours now.

The first link on top I do know about. I downloaded it, and everything is fine. It's a Hardware Maintenance Manual, but may have some of the general user information you need.

sounds like you simply have NUM LOCK turned on. Hold down the shift key and press the ScrLk (scroll lock) button to turn this off.
