OK try this. I had the same problem and got to thinking about it. There isn't a number keypad on the laptop so I just turned numlock off and now it's a keyboard again. Go figure :)

My laptop is only typing the numbers that appear on the letter keys. For example when I hit the letter J, it types a number 1. When I hit the letter k key, it types a 2, etc. How do I get it to go back...


Usually you have to hold the "Fn" key to get to these. Look for a "NumLock" key to turn this off. You may need to use the "Fn" key to select numlock.

Some keys register different characters. For example the O registers the number 6 when it is typed.


This should be a simple fix, look at your keyboard, you should have a function key and if you look at the number pads above the top row of letters there should be either a numerical symbol or a key pad, your keyb board is simply using several keys as an extended numerical keypad. If you look closely at the letters there are small numbers on them. To fix hold down function key and pressing the keypad button. You can also try pressing the number lock.

Try turning off the Num Lock on your keyboard if it is on. To do this, Press & Hold down the Fn key and find the button that has the NmLk in blue and press it.

Some of the letters i type are coming out as numbers


It sounds like the Numlk (number lock) is turned on. You will need to find the button on your laptop called ScrLk or NumLk. Press shift and this key to turn off number lock, or it is ctrl and the ScrLk button.
