Roughly translated, now that I have swapped keyboards:

I have a rotator cuff injury that is causing me a lot of pain when I type. I have been given one of the smaller keyboards by work, where the characters that are on the number pad appear as a kind of second uppercase.

I must have accidentally pressed something that corresponds to the caps lock, but I can't figure out what it is and Mr Google has been no help, so far.

Do the wise techies of MSE have any suggestions. Those that are more helpful than suggesting that I sling the keyboard out of the window would be gratefully received.

I've had to switch back to my big keyboard to type this, but it's not very comfortable.

It sounds as though you have switched the number-pad section of the keyboard on.

Ordinary desktop PC keyboards have the number-pad completely separate on the right hand side of the keyboard, laptop keyboards have the number-pad incorporated into the main keyboards and it's usually activated by a key-press using two keys simultaneously.
One of the keys will almost certainly be a function key (F4 on my Acer laptop).

Hope this helps Minnie.

Not sarcasm, but Mr.Google may be able to help. Google the "small keyboards for pc" ignore the normal results page, go to the image page, see if you can see you keyboard. Might take a couple of goes but you should find it and then track a manual down.

This one looks like it could be yours

lol I finally figured it, a button with numlock on that I couldn't see until I changed my specs.
It's blooming small though, the button that is. I did find it eventually by googling the make of the keyboard.
Trouble is the layout is a bit different to my normal keyboard and I keep accidentally pressing the wrong buttons. Story of my life really. :-)))
