to reset the cmos you only need to take the small round battery off the board for a few minutes. if your laptop is not keeping time then you need a new battery on the board. ( you will find you cant get on websites when your laptop has the wrong time on as its a security risk ) to enter the bios ( which i would not if i didnt know what i was doing ) turn off laptop/press power button to turn it on/keep pressing F2 while its booting up ..but be careful in there
This issue could be from viruses. I have come across a few viruses that switched around a few of the keys from letters to numbers. Have a technician or someone you know who's computer savvy do some virus removal on your laptop.
Also, make sure that the Fn key isn't activated. Sometimes haven't that activated will turn letters into numbers without you even knowing.
i would suspect your control buttons on your front panel on the set have become shorted. specifically the volume buttom down. This is freezing you control functions. like someone is holding the volume down button all the time. or intermitantly. this cuircit board is on front of the set. I have seen this problem a few times at the shop. The common repair is to replace that button assembly cuircit board. I believe the last time it cost the customer around 85 dollars, but like all things depends on the part and the technician that puts it in.
Try performing a hard reset on the laptop. Remove the battery and all peripherals connected to the laptop (including the AC adapter). Once everything is removed/disconnected, press and hold the power button for around 15 seconds. This will drain all remaining charge in the motherboards capacitors which usually causes this kind of issue.

Sometimes a laptop will appear in a ghost state, not off, or on if you sometimes shut it down, but close the lid too fast. Try pressing and holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. This should turn it off completely. Then give it a few more seconds and press the power button again to turn it back on.
