Something has happened keys "qwertyasdfghzxcvbn" work like they should but "uiop" returns "456*", "jkl"="123, m="0". It happens only on windows and idea how to fix it?

Most likely you have Num Lock turned on, which also turns on numeric keypad emulation on most laptops. Turning Num Lock off should fix this.
