So this is really frustrating. My son's laptop keyboard has gone haywire. Everything was working fine, and then all of a sudden some of the keys type weird things. For instance, pressing the "t" key gets you this: -U T
Some things that I have tried (in no particular order):
Checked the language settings.
Changed language settings around and rebooted.
Beat the crap out of the following keys while occasionally pressing <shift>: FN, NumLock, ScrollLock and ALT
Checked accessibility settings for obscure setups.
Deleted and reinstalled the keyboard drivers.
Ran a system restore.
Downloaded Keymapper and tried to manually set the keys.
Currently I'm concentrating on high-level cursing and intermittent fits of violent rage.
