it seems to be showing the key designation, keys have a whole load of different digits that represent the letter or number, try and plug in another USB keyboard to test that its not your current keyboard becoming faulty, you didnt mention what you were tying in to (Program).
On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.
Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.
First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.
Check "Control Panel" > "Regional and Language Options" > "Keyboards and Languages" > "Change Keyboards". This brings up the "Text Services and Input Languages" dialog box in Vista (XP may be a slightly different path). This box will display (in the "Installed services" section) how many keyboard layouts are installed on your computer. If have more than just the "US" keyboard installed, there exists certain keyboard combinations with the "Ctrl" key that will automatically switch your keyboard layout from the default US to another one that is installed
Okay, if I am reading this right, you type but get numbers where there should be some letters? There should be a NUM LK key or such on your laptop keyboard. It may be sharing a key. Check around, its there (or something very very similar). Once you find it, you will have to hold down your "fn" key and then tap the NUM LK key. Now type a sentence that includes the letters that show up as numbers and see if there is a change. It could be that your Number Lock key is on. Let me know if this does not work so we can try something else.
