Laptop keyboard giving wrong characters

Hi

 

I recently got my laptop back from repairs, and found a really strange error on it. It seems that I now have two numpads, one which is the usual one, and one which is centered on the i key. This means if i try to type any of the letters u i o j k l and m, I get 4 5 6 1 2 3 and 0 instead.I'm not entirely sure this is an hardware error or if it's some driver, but the driver is 2½ years old, so I guess it should be the same as before.

 

Any clues? Will I have to hand it in again? 

 

The laptop is a DV9093ea.

Press the FN key and hold. And press num lock once, your keyboard is back.

Re: Laptop keyboard giving wrong characters

When I type i get " instead of the at symbol and / instead of the pound symbol and É instead of a question mark.  How do I reset this as it is real hard to send an email when i cant even type the at symbol at all
