hi agian

I have the same problem... I am now typing on an external keyboard and as long as this one is plugged in, my notebook keyboard works fine too. Whenever I unplug it though, the notebook keyboard thinks there is a number pad, which makes it impossible to use letters on the right side of the keyboard (which is azerty, Belgian layout).

Anyone any clues on what might be the problem?

When I log in all letters and numbers work fine though...

Thanks in advance.

right... I feel a little stupid. Apperantly you just have to turn off Num lock. After that it just works as fine as it should work.
