I installed a wireless keyboard on my laptop and now whenever I try to use the normal laptop keyboard I get incorrect characters coming up. For example 3 instead of L. Help!

Do you mean that WITH the wireless STILL connected, you are using the hard wired KB and this problem occurs, OR AFTER the wireless is disconnected?

It just means that you need to toggle the NUMLOCK on the laptop keyboard (it overlays numbers for the central keys).

The key sequence is dependent on the laptop type, but usually Fn + Numlock or similar.

The external keypad normally leaves this toggled ON, and the setting is remembered.
