It sounds as if your NumLock is on. Here's what happens when it is:

NumLock On
In other words, you get the numbers (and other numeric keypad keys, like + - / *) instead of the letters. Simply turn NumLock off and you'll be back to normal. Regards, Joe

That was my first thought however G and H are not part of the number keypad.  There is mention of this on Lenovo's forum with a comment that even Lenovo doesn't have a solution except that maybe it is a bad keyboard.

Good catch, pony10us! I've seen this situation so many times with the numeric keypad built into laptops that my brain went right to it without reading his post carefully enough. My bad. Thanks for the correction. Regards, Joe

if he gets g5 when typing in G, it seems he's getting 2 characters
check  for any stuck keys, or debris
you may take the keyboard out for cleaning, or blow it out
does it happen with an external keyboard also ?

That's great news! Thanks for letting us know. Now you should close the question properly. You may, of course, close it however you wish, but it seems to me that the comment from pony10us was spot-on, and the first comment from nobus got it right, too. My comment was all wet. :)   Regards, Joe
