Windows 7: laptop keys have switched from alpha to numeric only

laptop keys have switched from alpha to numeric only

Afternoon everybody,

My specific problem is i have pressed some key combination on my vaio fw11m laptop, and the keys on the right hand side of the keyboard - u,i,o,p,h,j,k,l,b,n,m are now coming up as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 - when pressed.

I have tried alt/fn/ctrl with some of the function keys to reverse this, but to no avail. I remember this happening once with a previous vaio 7 yrs ago, but for the life of me , i cannot remember the key combination to correct it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Sorted. I was being a dumkopf. I had simply accidentally hit the Numlock key.
