    Got a laptop running vista home, the right of the keyboard has started displaying wrong keys or nothing at all.

    No signs of spillage or stickyness so can anyone make any suggestions please?

    Thanx

    are these numbers instead of letters

    ie

    I = 5
    K = 2
    L = 3

    if so then numlock is on

    Heres some examples of what the keys do:

    7=brings up the start menu, 8=nothing, 9=brings up the start menu, 0=nothing,
    u=x, i=nothing, o=nothing, p=nothing, [=[, enter=nothing,
    j=nothing, k=o, l=nothing, ;=nothing, @='

    Hope that helps

    I have the exact problem (just noticed 5 minutes ago)

    Everything started when I got tired of using my laptop keyboard and decided to connect my logitech g15. My buttons doesn't do the same as yours do though.

    Hello! Press the "fn" key and the "num lk" key to turn off the numeric keyboard (blue numbers and characters. That should work!
