I have purchased a second hand IBM Thinkpad and it appears that the keypad seetings are set so that the numbers on keys JKL, UOI and the
&*() are turned on and the letters are turned off.
Being second hand there was no manual - Can someone help me with the stting to turn the letters back on please

What model thinkpad? You can download a pdf.doc manual from IBM for these.

This would usually be one of the extended function options. ("Fn" key plus one of the F keys --- look for extra legends on the front of keys). There may be a default option set in the BIOS (look for NumLock).

Also, check in BIOS to make sure it does not come on automatically.
