Daytona 2008 XP SP3 keyboard driver

Hi Experts,
on my notebook ASUS W1N I installed Daytona 2008 XP SP3. This keyboard has no extra numeric field on the right but the button  Fn which help to realize the coventional numeric button group. Since the installation somehow the character places are changed on this numeric keyboard. When for example Fn and u are pressed same time then should appear 4 but inversed appears u instead of  4. The typing is very problematic beacause  of the "moved" characters.

How can I restore the original character table? Any help appreciated.

Kind regards
János

Seemingly installed OS does not support this reversion. What was the original OS that worked on it?

Hi noxcho,
this is 4 year old notebook and the original OS was XP. With XP SP2 worked normally, An other XP SP3 derivative was not stable. This is stable but it has the problem mentioned above

You need common version of Windows XP SP3 on it as Daytona seemingly was not configured for your machine.
Try to update drivers of the machine (if there is CD with drivers, run it) or reinstall Windows but non tweaked version.

Hi noxcho,
my son found the solution. Somehow the NumLock is turned on at startup. I have to push Fn + NumLk and my problem is away.
Thanks for your time!
