Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook
I do not know the key combination to switch off the alternate symbols such as when I pres the m key I get 0, or when I press p key I get *. Presently I am using another keyboard attached to the usb outlet to type this. My cat created this situation by taking a nap on the key board. I am sure the problem is easily resolved with the proper key combination. Unfortunately, I don't know them and have no instructions.
Shift + numLk (notebooks) enjoy ppl :)

You should have a "fn" key or function. Press and hold that button and press the "NumLk" key. That should do it.

I had the same problem on my Sony Vaio; after reading your suggestion, I tried, but it did not work. However, I do have an Alternate key, which did the trick when pressed just before pressing the NumLk key. Without your idea, I would have gone nuts and called Sony.
