    Hello, my laptops keyboard has stopped working properly. 'U' now types 4, 'I' 5, 'J' 1, 'K' 2, 'L' 3, 'M' 0 etc. The only buttons effected by this are the ones with numbers on the letter, so not e, r, t etc.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Find a button with "Num Lock" written on it, push that button while holding down the "Fn" or "Function" on it. This should stop the behaviour.

    E: there could also be a dedicated button for the num lock, if so, just press that.

    Well then look at your manual to find out how to disable the Num Lock.
