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.

When typing it shows numbers instead of letters, (when using the right part of my keyboard, ) Please give a solution to get rid of this problem


Hello,

If this is happening only on the right side of you keyboard this usually means that the Number Lock (Num Lock) was turned on.

To turn in off simply select the "Fn + Num Lock" buttons to disable it.

This should be leakage in the keyboard touching sensors. Cleaning inside the keyboard may resolve this issue, otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.

You have turned on the Number Lock. This enables the number keypad that is embedded in the main keyboard. There is set of three lights to the right of the power button; the middle one indicates when the Num Lock is on or off on the keyboard. To toggle this on or off press and together. The key is between the and the at the lower left of the keyboard.

I hope this helps.
