I have an Acer Inspire One d255e, running Windows 7 startup.
When I have a browser running (IE, Chrome or Opera), I type anything and a number comes up on display, going in order 1-0. I can cut and paste or have a password saver program put username/passwords in without a problem. Occassionally this will occur when I am in a non-internet based application, but I just close and re-open and the problem is gone.
When I press the windows key and type, I get normal typing, until I hit a shortcut.
Since the keyboard is small, I mistype more and I am fairly convinced I hit a hidden combination of keys. Acer says it's a software problem and not covered under the warranty.
Any combination with numblock doesn't fix anything.
Please help!

i can't find that information where it says "english" somewhere, but it appears to be english. when i press and hold the windows button, english letters appear as i type them until i hit a shortcut.

all of them, including punctuation using shift and non-shift. as far as i can tell there are no locks set. is there any way to reset keyboard? i reset bios to default, took battery out for awhile. i did a factory default restore and a point restore before i started adding programs. it worked correctly from 30 sec to a day.

nope, i get numbers only, 1234567890 in order with every number, letter or punctuation keystroke. all other keys, backspace, shift, del, etc work correctly.

take a note of all those keyboard setting so it the issue come back you could compare them with the one you have also i would do a full virus scan in safe mode without network and a malwarebytes cleaning
