Keyboard layout messed up

Hello experts,

For some reason the layout of my laptop keyboard got messed up. I found that the keys right to the letter "u" type numbers instead of letters. The same is true of the keys right to the letter "k" and those right to the letter "n".

But every thing works normal when I press the FN key while pressing any of the said letters.
How can I correct this situation....?

Normally, the exact opposite is true:  when you press the FN (function) key, those buttons will type number instead of letters.  It sounds like the default operation has been changed on your machine, either in a software interface or perhaps the BIOS itself.  I would check your both your software (including the Control Panel) and your BIOS settings.
