Hello there,
Did you check the keypad for alternate keys.
For example net books, the number keys on the right side has an alter key on the some letters like the image below. when you accidentally press the [Fn] key, Numbers are written instead of letters..

Hopefully this helps. Thank you for posting..

Hye mr expert...Here i have some question about my samsung netbook n220 series. For your info...actually this problem never happen before.The problem is some of my key not working & some of my key...


The problem with your Netbook seems to be that you have turned "NUMBER LOCK" or "NUM LOCK" on. This causes some of the letter keys, e.g U,I,O,J,K,L,M to be printed as numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6.

To turn this off, hold down the "FN" key (near the bottom left of the keypad) and then press "F11" and then release both keys.

Please try this and post back if you need further assistance.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-18. The keyboard

Connect an external keyboard to your laptop. If the external keyboard works properly that means the keyboard of your laptop is defective and you have to replace it. If you get the same problem with the external keyboard reinstall your operating system (it could be a virus).

If I do not push the font key while typing some of the letters, numbers appear example j is 1, k is 2, o is 6

Turn off the 'number lock'
Let me know if that works, and please rate my answer.
