The Fn key may be in the locked position. Try holding down the Fn + Num Lock.

The number 2 is showing up on your keyboard because you have the Num Lk (Number Lock) key on and you are probably hitting the FN key then the K key so the little number 2 that is on the K key appears as what is typed. for example: On my keyboard there is a Big Letter K key and also on that key is a small number 2 which is blue. In order for me to get the number 2 when I type I have to have the Num Lk key on and then I have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key on the lower left of my keyboard then hit the K key and the number 2 is what gets typed.

Some letters of the keyboard wont function especially the backspace.


Try this.
It stumped myself and some true experts once. We were having problems with the keyboard in a darkened room.
There is a Function ( "F" or "FN") key on the lower left of the keyboard. It's labeling is often blue in color. In low light conditions, you cannot see the blue coloring. It is used to turn a section of the keyboard into a calculator. That section will have dark blue numbers written on the keys that change function. For example the K may have a dark blue number 2 written on it. In other words, When you type the Alphabet you come up with some numbers substituted for letters and not all of the keys may function. Give it try.
Best Regards,
Mark

Letters are typing as numbers


one of the F keys turns certain keys on the right side to number keys, so it can act like a full size keyboard with the 10 key panel on the right.. Look carefully at the F keys to determine which one it is. Or consult the manual.

Hi, I've got 2 eeepcs, with identical problems,


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 probably have the function scroll button on. See the blue numbers on the letters? press function scroll to take it off and see if that is your problem.

Sounds like your num lock has been toggled on by mistake. Look for a key that says NmLK. It will be in the same color blue. That key may also be the scroll lock key(ScrLk) that should solve your problem.
