Problem which laptop keyboard

Hello there,

I'm having a weird problem with my sister's laptop, some keys of the keyboard writes numbers instead of letters, it gets fixed temporarily after I restart but then it comes back.

What could be causing this, how to fix it and how to prevent it from happening in the future..

Oh almost forgot, it's an Acer TravelMate 4152LMi

Hello Ahmed,

Did this just happen recently, or has it been going on for some time now? Perhaps a System Restore will help.

Just check that you aren't bumping the numlock key. On some acers, this turns on the numbers on keys
U,I,O,J,K,L,M.

My Acer also does this, Then when I hold down the function key and press F11 (which is Numlock on mine), it goes back to normal.

You can probably change the numlock default settings to 'off' in bios; but I have never bothered to check.
