Your keyboard is in "Number Lock" mode.
Press the [Num Lock] key one time.

Clarify the question ? what do you mean by large numbers.

Remember the numeric keypad is embedded in the alpha keypad, in case you have turned on the numlock, numbers will be printed instead of characters.

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.


When the RH side of the keboard types numbers instead of letters then the Num Lock (number lock) key has been pressed.
Press the Num Lock Key again to return to letters again, usually this is usually done by pressing the Fn key plus and probably the Scroll keys, this key will be also marked NumLk, and there will be a LED light that will indicate when the number lock is on.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
