You probably have accidently turned on numlk which turns mjkluio789 into 0123456789
Most laptops require a two key combination of Fn (function key) and NumLk (numeric lock key) to toggle it off and on. Sometimes there is a seperate NumLk by itself as it is on most desktop keyboards.
If this doesn't do it let me know the make and model of your laptop and I'll see if I can help further.

I have an RCA Voyager III RCT6973W43. Every time I go to type on the keyboard, I go to type a word/letter and instead for an example: I'll type a letter like "w" number 2 er comes up.


Borrow a keyboard from a friend. If it still does it then there is something strange with your computer. If it does not do it then your keyboard may be corrupt so buy a new one

My netbook (Samsung n130) has a keyboard problem. The keys for the letters u,i,o,p,k,l,m and some others are returning numbers or symbols. I have no idea why this has started. Any ideas?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!

It seems that you are having problem with the keyboard functionality. Is it typing numbers instead of letters? Just press Fn Nmlk for you to be able to disabled the Numlock on the computer.

Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

have you tried replacing the batteries in your Wireless keyboard? it could be that simple as the wireless may be dieing if there is not enough power to send the information of what your typing.. Try this before you change your configurations in Windows.

Hope this helps,

Hi. Whenever I type the letter 'i', I get the number 5


Is this a laptop or desktop. Either way, try a different keyboard. That will tell you if it is hardware or software. If it happens on another keyboard, resubmit your help request with that info.

Sounds like the windows key is stuck down, pressing start+r opens run, start+e opens explorer etc. The start key being the one between control and alt.
