Answers :

You have accidently switch on the Number Lock and turned these keys into a number keypad.
\015\012On some model laptops the NumLk can be toggled on and off by holding the Fn key and pressing one of the function that has a keypad symbol or labeled NumLk.
\015\012On other laptops such as ThinkPad it is the Shift key + the NumLk/ScsLk key.
