A,e,i,o.u,s,0,1 and 5 keys don't work

I have a dc5000sff HP PC and the vowels, the letter S and the numbers 0, 1, and 5 don't work. I tried the numbers on the 10 key pad ont he right as well as the keys above the letters and these numbers don't work in either place. I first thought it was the keyboard I was using so I hooked up another one I have that works with other PCs but I still cannot type A, E, I, O, U, S, 0, 1 or 5. We're rebooted but aren't very computer savvy. What can we do?

    I am using windows xp but I didn't think about that being a possible issue. I was able to reboot while holding down f8 and I selected last known good config but it still didn't correct the keyboard issue. Any other ideas?

Where is the Number key lock on my new hp laptop?? I can't get my router to work

usually if the computer do not have a num lock neat the numbers in the left corner ..I mean if you only have numbers on top of the letters this means that the numbers are always on ...and if you need to change to the upper symbols use the shift key above the ctrl and Fn key ...If you do not have the numbers always on under the letters it means that you used the fn key and changed the functions of the keys or some kinda odd virus did that and in this case a reinstall will fix it ..but I dont this this is the case...
If you have Numbers in the right side like a full size keyboard..than the num LK will be on top of them if you only have numbers on top of the letters than the numbers are always on and the shift will change to the symbols

Temporary software

try re-entering the code.
If it has a O (letter O) try using a 0 (zero) or maybe and I (eye) for a 1 (one)
Also look closly to see if it may be a Q or an O or a lot of times the way print coums out a B looks like an 8 and vice versa
A lot of times the key codes come out wrong for a mistaken letter or number.
