my keyboard on a laptop will not print letters a-z but will type numbers 1-etc I am sure it is something simple but don't know

Try to hold FN key and press one of the F5 like buttons that show NumLK or something.
This means you have switched to numeric keyboard (blue print) on keys.

if not sure send me your laptop model I wil ltell you exactly as I forgot my crystal ball at work.
