You have accidentally turned on the NumLock feature (numeric keypad simulation, you have the digits written on these keys in different color).

The key to turn it off (NumLk) is located in the upper right area of the keyboard, try hitting it alone, with Fn and with Fn + Shift, Ctrl or Alt., checking every time if the "numeric" keys came back to normal.

Eee pc r101 keyboard not working properly. Some of the keys won't type the correct letters and type the function letter or symbol instead or just random numbers. Also the touch pad and mouse click is...

The keyboard takes a lot of abuse and as durable as it is, they will eventually wear out. It is a very inexpensive part to replace and does not require a lot of skill. The fact that the touch pad is acting up could indicate that they are interconnected. I would replace both. The Touch pad is a more involved part to replace and I would suggest you get some help or pay to have it replaced.

You can order them off of sites like eBay, then watch a YouTube video on how to do it.

Your num lock is on. Press Fn NUM. In the cmos (bios) setup, there may be a numlock boot state, make sure it's off.

H6w d6 5 get 0y 2eyb6ard t6 ty-e 3etters aga5n -3ease

Check you Num Lock & Scr Lock Keys, one at a time. This is a toggle key (1 press on, 2nd press off)
For laptops without a separate 10-key section, they allow users to switch to 10-key function for data entry etc.
That should take care of it.

My keyboard

yaa bcoz you have made your Numlock On thats why keyboard gives you these characters. You can see a led 'on' on your keyboard near Num Lock.

To make it off press and hold Fn kye (left side bottom row of the keboard) and press Num Lock kye (Top row right side). It will make your Num Lock on/off.
