Several of the keys on the top row of the keyboard are giving a dual number or letter at the same time. e.g. tab is 1, Caps Lock is 2, 2 is caps lock, 5 gives 5 and t. Have checked regional settings and restored. No luck any thoughts?

You may be using Number Lock try fn key plus Number lock key

No luck

My guess, a faulty keyboard. You could probably get a replacement keyboard.

Is that possible for a laptop? Would it be cheaper to by a new laptop

Yes it is possible, much cheaper than buying a new laptop - what make/model is your laptop?

When I press number 9 in Word I get Spellcheck which is equal to F7. The computer is a Dell/Inspiron 1300

If you only use it in the house buy a PS/2 Keyboard. or there are some small ones in Maplins

You could also use a USB one

If I purchase a replacement USB keyboard for the laptop:-
a, Is it plug and play?
b, Do they need drivers?
c, Will it disable the built in keyboard?
