    I have a Thinkpad 600. Some of the keys have a number on them along with the letter. These keys won't type the letter just the symbol or the number. Like the u key has the number 4, the i key has the number 5, and so on. The keys were working fine a few days ago. Now they are not. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

    Jedi is right - that's one useless feature on Thinkpads....

    Sorry for not getting back sooner. The numlock was not on. Any other suggestions. Thanks.
    And Happy Valentine's Day.

    The behavior is exactly as though NumLock is on. How do you know it isn't? What happens when you turn it on if you think it's off? Same behavior?

    Same thing happens whether it's on or off. And I did try system restore. That didn't work either.

    Do you see a light on the keyboard that toggles on and off when you toggle numlock?

    Try Fn + F11. It may not be the same on your laptop. look for the key that has a symbol that looks something like a Numeric Keypad then press the Fn key and that particular key at the same time. It may be Function locked to the Numeric Keypad for those keys.

    Thanks so much. The shift and numlock key did the trick.
