Everyday something points the reason out to why i really dont like laptops lol

That problem is not laptop specific. I have desktops but use keybourds without seperate numeric pads. The problem is the same. And on a 17" laptop, you usually have a seperate numeric keyboard - there the problem would not occur. So it is really neither here not there.

I know the threat is already some time old but I found it by Google. Well as I faced the same problem and I guess some people will hit this threat I want to post how I solved the problem for myself.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate on a Japanese laptop. My problem was that even with installed Japanese system language and/or installed Japanese keyboard my keyboard layout was still US which means for example the @ key was on SHIFT + 2 and not on the dedicated key beside the P. Many other keys are not on the correct position as well which is pretty troublesome to type....

That is the way I solved the problem (I hope the list down is not scaring you ):

-> open the CONTROL PANEL
-> select HARDWARE AND SOUND
-> select DEVICE MANAGER
-> double click on your PC name under DEVICES
-> Click on the Tab HARDWARE
-> search your keyboard entry in the hardware list
-> click on PROPERTIES
-> open the DRIVER Tab
-> click UPDATE DRIVER
-> select BROWSE MY COMPUTER FOR DRIVER SOFTWARE
-> select LET ME PICK FROM A LIST OF DEVICES .....
-> remove the tick in the checkbox "Show compatible Hardware" to see all hardware
-> in the first category "Standard Keyboards" select JAPANESE PS/2 KEYBOARD (102/109 Key) and confirm with NEXT
-> YES and then after the installation is completed restart your system.

After that, your keyboard is working correctly
cheers
