Windows 7 - Keyboard input not working properly


All of sudden on my Windows 7 machine the keyboard input had awry. When I type in a '0' on the screen it displays '/' and when I type in a 'k' it displays an '*'. This has just happened all of a sudden on my pc weird I can still log into my because my password has a '0' in it, that rules out any hardware issues.

Any help would be much appecriated.

Thank you.

It looks like this is a laptop and you have enabled the numeric keypad function. Just disable that (there should be a key combination, like Fn+Num-Lock or or just Num-Lock something similar).
