I have seen this problem before, but I have gone to the expense of a new keyboard and I still have the problem

Some keys respond, some don't and some come up with different characters

I have seen elsewhere about certain key combinations utilizing the Fn key to switch it back, but have tried in vain

Anyone any idea about this particular laptop ??

Thanks

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:

•Flush DNS
•Report IE Proxy Settings
•Reset IE Proxy Settings
•Report FF Proxy Settings
•Reset FF Proxy Settings
•List content of Hosts
•List IP configuration
•List last 10 Event Viewer log
•List Installed Programs
List devices (Problem only)
•List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
•List Minidump Files

Click Go and copy / paste the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

You could list the Make and Model of computer and post a snapshot with Speccy as this may give us a bit more to look at -

Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE or HERE, and save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

Thank You -

Talking from ignorance, the first thing I would do is check that the default language hasn't changed, especially if individual key presses have the same result each time. If you have more than one language enabled, I think Alt+Shift will toggle them.
