Sony Vaio VGN 270P - Jumbled Keyboard Input characters

Sony VAIO - VGN T270 P / Windows XP-SP2 / Sony Vaio Drivers from Online SONY Support.

Wrong Laptop Keyboard input character recognition by Windows.
Worked fine after fresh installation, I suspect further installation of vaio drivers caused this, not sure.

Correct Character identification on third party BOOT DISK i.e Hiren Boot CD  text editors.

I get different character on screen than the one pressed on the Laptop Keyboard.
It confuses the 1st row alphabetical input for keys like P,O.I etc into numbers.

A solution would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jacobs.

Hi
Make sure the FN or Num lock key is not active on the keyboard.

HI F-KIng was right.

The problem seems to be solved when I press the FN key and the other keys at the same time.

So at present the FN key seems to be enabled or disabled.
I tried Switch an and swithsch of by single press, continued press, and multiple press.but i cannot permanantly revert the current function of the FN key.

So the question arises, how do I permanantly revert the FN key function?

Thanks.
