This morning for some reason the laptop keyboard started inputting strange numbers and symbols instead of letters. At the time I was downloading videos from a Bloggie. Any help please.

Check that num lock is not on.

Hi woolwell, Numbers lock is not on. The letters uiopjklm come out as 456*1230 and some of the symbols are wrong as well.

The symptom that you describe is typical for num lock on. Is there a function key for this?

Hi the numbers lock key is on f11 on the top row

Still think that num lock is stuck on see num lock alternative keys. Try toggling it on and off.
