Fat fingers is the root of this problem. CTRL-Shift toggles between normal and flaked out keyboard. Pressing the two keys together should get your keyboard back to normal (or to krazykez).
ALT-Shift may also do this.

I was typing on my keyboard and all of the sudden I pressed the 'n' key and got nh7
pressing 2 gets 2/6
pressing 6 gets 2
pressing 4 gets 74
pressing 0 gets 7
pressing g gets bg
pressing h gets nh
pressing b get bg4
pressing 1 turns on cap lock
pressing the wireless prints a 9
perssing the speaker turns off the wireless
Is there anything I can do to stop this?

I've been trying to find answers to my annoying HP laptop keyboard issues as well, and I stumbled on your question. I was directed to this website. It will help with your question.
some of it was useful to my situation, but what I was happy to read was how to access those blue characters on some of the keys! You press and hold CTRL+Shift + the question mark key (as an example), and you'll either get the question mark or the é. Press CTRL+Shift again, and your keyboard returns to normal. Finally, I found out how to access those blue keys!
I believe my keyboard hardware is wrong, and that`s why I can`t do other things that I`m having problems with...
but, I think this page might help you.

Hello lepanto. I understand your keyboard is not typing the correct characters.
Verify that you have the correct keyboard layout selected by following the steps in this Microsoft article.
Let me know the result and have a wonderful day.
