Hi Allykins,

Make sure that there isn't any keys stuck down (tap them a couple of times), main culprits being...
the shift keys (both right and left side)
alt + alt gr keys
both CTRL keys
fn (function key)

It is also worth checking your regional and language settings
How to Change the Windows 7 Regional Format Language

*Its the Keyboards and Languages* tab you need to check.

There are'nt any keys stuck down, But when i hold the fn key down, i can type just fine (except that the spacebar doesn't work).
Then i tried the language setting, but that doesn't work either.

Without holding any key e.g. fn key

press the letter 'U' do you get the letter U, number 4 or another symbol?

What operating system do you have i.e XP, Vista, 7?

I just meant lowercase u but if you get a u then that would suggest that there is nothing wrong with the fn key as while pressing then fn key + u you should get a 4.

When you checked 'Keyboard and languages' what was listed?

Do you have a language tool bar on your task bar?

Well when i press fn and u, i still get u.
Under the formats tab in region and language, the format is english
No i don't have the Language tool on my task bar.

When you check the keyboard setting, do you get the same as me?

If you have more languages listed in that box then try removing them.
