Would these be keys that can also be used to enter numbers? do they have numbers on them as well as letters ? If so I'm thinking that there is some sort of Num. Lock activated (perhaps via an FN key ?) Can you tell us more about the laptop, make and model ?
I have a similar problem. Looks like the function key got locked somehow. when I type U I O .. it prints 4 5 6. If I press Fn + U it doesn't print anything. Can anybody help me unlock the Function key ? The model/make of the laptop is IBM T41.
To enable or disable Number Lock on the Aspire One, press and hold the Function (Fn) key and tap the F11 key once. The Number Lock indicator will light up when the Number Lock is enabled and will be unlit whenever the Number Lock is disabled.

Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys. http://www.papatek.com/Acer-Keyboard/
Num Lk will cause the keys on the right-hand side of your keyboard to display the alternate characters printed in blue. Just press the Num Lk key--it's the fifth key from the top right corner of your keyboard--to deselect, and your problem will vanish.
My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.
I also had this very frustrating problem and found that removing the battery that would no longer hold a charge solved the issue. Go figure. Haven't bought a new battery yet to see what that does and I run my computer on AC power all the time now.
