It's Fiona's laptop. Suddenly this morning it started to produce numbers instead of some letters.

j produces 1
k produces 2
l produces 3
and so on

Never seen that happen before. It’s unlikely to be mechanical because she has a protective membrane permanently in place over the keyboard. We can probably plug in a spare keyboard that is lying around but it still needs to be resolved.

Any ideas?

Never knowingly underfed

Well it turns out that I changed it to a numeric keyboard my mistake - resolved by pressing Fn and Numlk simultaneously πŸ™‚

I've done that - took me ages and a call to a techy friend before managed to 'fix' it. I felt very silly! πŸ˜‰

LOL, I've done that too, just needed to press num lock to get back to normal.

(I'll have to start keeping my calculator near my laptop for your sums Danny!)

I'll try that again!
