Asus PRO55S laptop .

When I hit Function-F8 to get the external monitor, something strange occurs with the keyboard.

The function key correctly switches between the laptop monitor and external source , but the keys get all messed up, eg: M key now closes windows, other keys do different things.

Biggest pain is that hitting F8 again does not revert the keys to normal, a restart is required. F8 still switiches the monitor correctly.

Maybe F8 is mapped to something else, but I can't work out what causes it.
:badpc:

Any ideas?

Does the keyboard use standard keys to double as a numpad? If that's turned on weird things can happen.
