Your question, though somewhat cryptic, might have a solution..

From the way that your keys have been transposed (o = 6, m = 0, etc) I will
guess that you are using a laptop (or a small laptop-style keyboard) and
you've turned NUM LOCK on. Laptops lack the space for a separate numeric
keypad, so they "double up" the numpad keys with the standard ones.

Simply turn Numlock off and your keyboard should return to normal.

Hope this helps..

Here's what I understood from that message: "How can I get the computer to
right letters again??? Something happened when the children played!!!"

It sounds like they picked up some malware; I suggest running a virus scan
and Spybot Search and Destroy.

Even simpler than that, I suspect - see my response elsewhere in the thread!

That's odd, on my notebook I have to use the Fn key + those keys to type
numbers with Num Lock on.

<shrug>
I suppose it depends on the laptop.. I have an IBM Thinkpad T40 here, and
(like most other Thinkpads, IIRC) simply turning Numlock on is enough to
garb3e any text y64 ty*e...!

Other possibilities if not a laptop,
restart computer
if it still happens try someone elses keyboard.
