Numlock is turned on, press the FN button on lower left and look for the numlock key, you should see numbers 1-9 on the keys that you have been pressing, those buttons have numbers and the letters, just turn the numlock off, and they will be letters again.

Your numlock key is on. On an eeepc, you might have to use the fn key + some other key to turn it off.

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly


You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

Why is my computer typing numbers instead of letters when I type


That is because the Function key is enabled to type in numbers. Try pressing the Fn key (dont let go) and press Numlock key.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

Number an letter combo won't change back to letter


Sounds like you have number lock on. To turn this off you'll need to hold the function (Fn) button and press number lock. I'm not sure which is the numlock button on your model but it looks like on other models it's F11. Make sure you hold the Fn button down until you've pressed Numlock though or it won't work.

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.



Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn



Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
To turn on or turn off mute using the Mute button, press the Mute button.
To turn on or turn off mute using the keypad, press the exclamation point (!) key.
To turn speakerphone on and off during a call, press the period (.) key.
To change the volume during a call, roll the trackwheel.

Okay, if I am reading this right, you type but get numbers where there should be some letters? There should be a NUM LK key or such on your laptop keyboard. It may be sharing a key. Check around, its there (or something very very similar). Once you find it, you will have to hold down your "fn" key and then tap the NUM LK key. Now type a sentence that includes the letters that show up as numbers and see if there is a change. It could be that your Number Lock key is on. Let me know if this does not work so we can try something else.
