Keyboard not typing letters

I cannot get my keyboard to type letters where my numbers keys are. They share the same keys. How do I change it back to letters only.

Hi dscarbs,

I assume that this is a laptop pc? The number/letter combination is usually turned on or off via a key called 'FN'. See if you have an FN key and press it to see if your keyboard returns to normal. You may have inadvertantly pressed the key while using the keyboard.
