It sounds like you have turned on the "NumLock" feature that many laptops have.( j=1 k=2 l=3 u=4 i=5 o=6 m=0) It's intended for use by people who need to enter large amounts of numeric data.

Find the NumLock key and press it to reverse things and set it back to normal. On my Dell it's Fn + F4, on my Compaq it's Fn + ScrLk. It's different on every make and model. But, it's somewhere on the keyboard .

Good Luck! :)
My Compaq laptop is playing up. Some keys have stopped working, then come on,others go. Then keys give different alphabet. What is going on?

Hi hricha dikshit,

Change in the keyboard layout can cause keys behavior to change. Please ensure all the additional languages are removed from "Regional and Language" settings. Click here to find steps on how to change your keyboard layout.
