Laptop Keyboard types funky

I plugged a "Logitech Classic Keyboard 200" into the USB port on my ASUS netbook, so I would have a full-sized keyboard with 10-key in order to get some schoolwork done quicker. I've used this keyboard many times on other laptops, and nothing weird ever happened. When I unplugged it from my ASUS, the built-in keyboard now replaces numbers when you try to type certain letters. Here's an example;

"I'm just typing some sample text here" on my Logitech keyboard

"'0 14st ty*5ng s60e sa0*3e text here" 6n 0y [bleep] 2eyb6ard

As you'll notice, some letters are replaced with numbers, and others simply act as a Backspace, such as I or U.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, and I can't find where I can uninstall the Logitech keyboard that seemed to cause this fiasco in the first place (and yet works perfectly itself).

What should I do?

Try pressing [fn]+[F11] to turn off the NumLock. (It may be some key other than [F11] on your netbook/laptop).
