I've got a bit of a problem I'm going to throw out there in case it's happened to anyone else and they've been able to solve it.
I bought a Logitech Cordless Desktop EX110 Keyboard & Mouse to use with my Eee PC 1000HE. I'm running the Windows 7 beta (which I'm almost positive is part of the problem). Anyway, when I first plugged the keyboard and mouse up to it it worked fine (and continues to do so), but after the first I used it and then tried to use the Eee PC's built-in keyboard I noticed a fairly significant problem.
Almost all of the keys on the right-hand side of the Eee PC keyboard have alternate key commands that you'd normally use by holding function and pressing the button- holding function and U, I, or O would type out 4, 5, or 6 (respectively), and so on. However, now the keyboard acts as if the function key is "stuck" and won't let me type the key's normal letters. This effectively turns it into half a keyboard and a full number pad, which is of course useless. I've exhausted everything I know to do to try to fix this (reinstalling the Eee PC keyboard driver, removing the keyboard and mouse's hardware profiles from Windows, etc.) and I haven't had any luck googling around trying to find a solution.
Anyway, before I do anything too drastic, has anyone had this happen to them before and/or know how I'd go about fixing it? Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

its the numeric lock key. I had the same problem. It is effected on setup of the keyboard and mouse combo. Try it and see if this helps
