Re: Characters become numbers

echo,

I think the Num Lock key may have been pressed.

You see, laptops don't have a number keypad like desktop keyboards do. Instead, they have secondary buttons.

Much like the numbers 1 to 0 can be change to an ASCII character by holding the shift key, the letter keys can be changed to numbers by pressing the Num Lock key..

Look for Numlk and press it
