the 'Fn' key make me type numbers and symbols instead of letters when I want to.
However, it looks as if the 'Fn' key was stucked.
I can't type the 'i', 'u', 'o', and 'p'. All I get are numbers and symbols.
How do you reset the 'Fn' key? I have tried restarting the laptop with no avail.
Actually is my wife's Gateway laptop.
Any suggestions?

You can also try : FN+NumLk
Thanks for the input.
Since I don't have a NumLK key on my keyboard I tried the Scroll-LK key instead and it WORKED!!
Thanks. I had the same problem and had tried everything prior to your post. Thanks for the solution it really works.

Thanks sooooooooo much.
I tried Fn+F11+Scroll Lk and now I can type letters again.
For the past 2 days I get "2" when I try to type "k" and had to continuously hold down the Fn key.

I do not know how I got into this mode. Thanks again.
