Windows 7: Keyboard only typing numbers in sequence, num lock OFF

Keyboard only typing numbers in sequence, num lock OFF

This is killing me.
When in word documents or typing in browsers, my laptop keyboard is perfectly fine, but when I'm in a game or certain other programs (like typing in Pandora, the internet radio) my keyboard (all the numbers, letters, and punctuation keys), when hit, will display numbers. No matter what key is pressed the first press gives me a "1," the next a "2," and so forth until "0" which is when it goes back to "1." I can't play anything and have to copy paste into Pandora's typing field. Oddly, when I hit CTRL-V to paste it still registers. CTRL-random number would not paste, so something is (I think) changing my letters into numbers after the letter registers.
I tried to do all the Num-lock and scroll-lock stuff but it didn't work.
AVG Free's scheduled scan turned up nothing.
I'm currently scanning with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Spybot S&D. Unhackme says there is no Trojan on my computer.
I temporarily fixed the problem previously with a system restore, but it did not last.
Someone please help!

UPDATE: There doesn't seem to be any virus or malicious files.
I searched and found a guy with a similar problem, but there was no solution...

What happens if you use a different keyboard? Assuming it is not a laptop.

I plan to try that tomorrow, if I can dig up a cheap plug-in keyboard from somewhere; it's 11 over here.
Thanks for replying and trying to help!
EDIT: it's a laptop, by the way. Does that complicate matters?

Unfortunately the num and scroll locks were not the problem...
Thanks though! And thanks for the welcome .

Can't find another keyboard, will keep trying.

I have the exact same problem... tell me, does your keyboard work normally if you hold down one of the alt keys?

Somehow on mine holding alt seems to fix my but only while holding down the alt key, and trying to do that while killing things is rather... annoying...

A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated... because it's driving me insane... well... more insane <.<

Have you tried a different keyboard?

More information is required... Like, when you say it types it in sequence...

When you do:

IIIII

Does it go:

12345?

Or if you do:

ertyertyertyerty

Does it do:

1234123412341234

The reason I ask this is more of trying to determine the problem, and of course, doing what someone else suggested, try a different keyboard.

I'm assuming you have the same problem as I do, so to respond to the previous poster no matter what i type it comes up in the sequence 1234567890.

Example

I type - ABCDEFGHIJK

My display shows 12345678901

I type - AAAAAAAAAAA

my display shows 12345678901

I type - ABCABCABCABC

my display shows 123456789012

there seems to be absolutly no patterns to it, but if i press any number or letter or symbol key it just types from 1-0 in sequence over and over again.
