    I have a Gateway Laptop and a few letters on my keyboard will display a number when depressed instead of the correct letter.

    For example when I press the letter "u" it will type "4" and for letter "i" I'll get a "5"

    My mom was just having this problem too, but its a bit more wide spread. The right side of her keyboard types letters or symbols when she presses letters or numbers. An example would be the "i" key types 9, etc. She went to the regional and Language Options, and it's set correctly. The problem JUST started occuring a few minutes ago.

Go to the control panel and open Regional and Language options. Make sure it's set for your country. Then click the languages tab and then details, make sure it's your language in the box.

When texting how to inter mix letters with numbers?

When you are on the letters virtual keyboard and want to enter a number or a symbol, tap on the box marked '123' or '123Sym'. That brings up the numbers+symbols virtual keyboard. After entering the number(s) or symbol(s), tap on the box marked 'ABC'. That will bring back the letters virtual keyboard.

The letter u key gives me the number 4, the i key gives me the number 5 the o gives me number 6, The last 3 to 4 letter keys gives me numbers

right first off im assuming this isn't a full size keyboard with the number pad on the right.

so when you have a laptop keyboard some characters share with others, in your case numb lock has been pressed and is replacing the letter u with 4

I have a gateway mx6453.every since i gooked up my wireless gear via usb, the keypad on the laptop has the numbers on the letters UIOJKLM stuck into number ock even when I unplug the wire less. what...

this may sound weird to you but turn off the laptop, remove the bezel, screws and the keyboard. start the computer until you get a keyboard error. enter the bios and restart with f10 and enter. when it restarts, shut off the laptop again. reinstall the keyboard. restart the computer and try to use the locked keys. i doubt the usb wireless caused this. if the keys are still stuck, then the keybaord is faulty. spill liquid on it?

I have an Asus X58L laptop, For some reason there is a letters lock and I do not know how to unlock it. So if I press letter u it gives me 4, if I press p it gives me - and so on, unless I press Fn button

It sounds like you have the num lock switched on, most laptop keyboards are too small to have a separate numeric keypad so use the letter keys on the right side of the keyboard for this. (you should note numbers as well as the expected letters on the face of these keys).

To turn off the num lock, hold down the Fn key and press Ins. (located top right of the keyboard).

Keyboard letters wont work but only top row Of numbers

On a notebook computer, there is a FN key that when pressed with the appropriate special function key will disable the normal keyboard and enable the alternate letters (printed in a different color) on your keyboard.
Unfortunately, I can't remember which special function key that is--but the icon on it should give you a clue.

My laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

Make sure the "Num Lock" key isn't activated (LED Off).
Windows 2000 / XP actually saves the last "Num Lock" setting when you log off and restores it when you restart.
