Default Re: keyboard

It sounds like the NUM lock key is on. Perhaps you have to use the FN key to turn it off.

Although if you were saying that y=7 and t=4 when you type that wouldn't make sense as that is not where the number pad is located. Make sure none of the keys are stuck down. When did this start? How old is the laptop?

Perhaps the keyboard is in dvorak (or whatever it is called). I've never used it so I'm not sure on the layout.
EDIT: Upon further review it seems unlikely that's the case.

Maybe a "friend" remapped some (or a lot) of your keys?

Or lastly maybe the keyboard is just dying (or dead).
