My microsoft word has been changed

Todayas I activated voice recognitopn on my laptop which was fine, however when i went back to use microscoft Word Doc and began to type, some letters came in as numbers. Can you tell me what I have to do to return Microsoft back to my old system.
When I also go into my email and try to type my name some of the letters also come in as numbers.
I have never used restored and when I looked it up it said that it would return it to the factory settings, but I have installed other programmes and I would lose them should I use restore

Do you have a laptop with keys that have numbers on the lower corner of them, usually on the right-most set of keys
[possibly in purple]

If this is the case, which it often is n this scenario, you have activated the number lock.
shift + numlock, or fn + numlock

Inadvertently depressing these keys, or a combination activates the right side of your keyboard as numbers
Normally It's to the right of the F12 key.

You would notice that it would be letters like L and M that printing as numbers - Thats a sure sign

Try that as it's probably the case, if not, post back.

What do you mean went back to factory settings? Are you referring to the bios settings? Or other else? If you are referring to the bios settings, and everytime you change the bios and rebooted, then back to factory settings then your problem maybe the cmos battery. You can change it and try if everything works fine. And maybe you can't connect using wifi because it is disabled in the bios settings or if not you got a defective wireless module. Hope this will help pal. Maybe you should elaborate your situation more detailed as what is really happening to your laptop,

Interferance with sound

Normal 0 If the people you are talking to have speakers they hear you and you will get feed back of your voice. Have them turn down the speaker level or better yet use a headset and this will no longer be a problem.

QuickCam mic doesn't work

I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

I recently purchased a desk top, it allready has a free trial for microscoft office, however I cannot adequetly access it because it required a Product Key (25 chartacters) how do i obtain this

A product key is a unique combination of 25 numbers and letters. The product key is used during Microsoft software installation to "unlock" or to open the product. If you do not enter the product key when you are prompted during the installation, the product may not open until you enter the product key. The product key is typically located on an orange or yellow sticker on the back of the CD case or the DVD case.

To obtain a new product key for your Office program, contact Microsoft and speak to a customer service representative. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: (
