Have you tried closing Excel completely and opening another spreadsheet. Does the problem still exist?

If yes, have you checked whether any of the keyboard 'locks' have been accidentally enabled (Caps, Num, Scroll, etc.)

That's what just happened to me. The problem is my Logitech keyboard does not have a Scroll Unlock key. If that's your situation, in Windows 7 click on the "Start" button and type in a search for "On-Screen Keyboard." That keyboard DOES have a Scroll Unlock key.

Other keyboards have a "func" function key.  That key works like the scroll lock key, press it once and it's on.  Press it again, it's off!  

 

I just looked at my Microsoft keyboard and there's a "F Lock" key.  I it's not "on", keys don't work the same as what's known.
