Laptop number keys acting like F keys

Hi, recently my number keys on my sony vaio vgn-ns130e have begun acting like f keys. for example, if i want to type 1 it will open a new window, five will refresh a page which is so frustrating if i have been typing something long and it gets lost in an accidental refresh!

I am running windows vista 32 bit. It is not numlock, numlock is off. HELP.

My laptop is recently formatted and i have downloaded the drivers from sony esupport but when i installed some driver it requires some application which i think not included from what i downloaded... is...


maybe the files are zip files and if they are you will need to download winzip or winrar to unzip the files

when you say that it is recently formatted did the hard drive go wrong
have you still got the recovery option on the laptop it may be in your programs

or have you put another operating system on the laptop other than the original factory shipped os

there maybe something in this link that may be of use to you

many thanks

My sony vaio vgn-ns130e motion eye web cam disappeared how can i fix this problem


As with Windows Vista and 7 the camera drivers are incorporated with the OS itself, I suggest that you install the Arc Soft Web Companion Software to resolve this issue.

Also, check in the Device Manager if the Imaging Device is listed or not, if no, install the following driver.

I want to format my laptop what do i need to do?

boot up using a bootable CD (the Windows CD for example) and pick fresh install. It will ask if you want to format your hard drive (and lose everything - Windows will not longer be there or any of your files).
