First thing to try is system restore. There's a good possibility that this will correct the problem. For Xp on: Click on Start > All Program > Accessories > System tools > System Restore Select restore my computer to an earlier time and select a date prior to the fault. Let us know how this goes, there are ways to reconfigure the keyboard mapping but it is a last resort.

Ask ! Get the answer lotri February 26, 2010 5:01:52 AM Do you have a laptop with the embedded numpad? If you don't know what that means, look at your keyboard. Do your MKJ keys also have numbers on them? It could be some sort of problem with your Fn key (that's how I type on my embedded numpad). Try turning off your NumLock as well and see if the problem persists. If that's not the problem, try going into Regional & Language settings and make sure you have an English Keyboard selected.
