Another problem

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just started the computer up today and my 'n' and 'b' keys now show up as '5' and '6'. Also I can no longer do Ctrl C/V.

    now my equals key doesn't work either. :x
     
  2. Number lock on per chance?
     
  3. How did you manage to write this then?

    Seriously though, num soundslike a good guess
     
  4. Check in Control Panel that your keyboard is set to "English (United Kingdom)" and hasn't accidentally been set to some weird foreign language.
     
  5. So, how did you manage to type "n" and "b" in that message?

    Either your keyboard has been remapped or something, (a game, perhaps) is intercepting the keystrokes.

    Some laptops have a coloured key that remaps certain keys to allow you to easily perform other tasks. Are there any other (coloured) clues on those particular keys?;

    Or, assuming that you are using Win XP, check under Control Panel/Regional and Language that your world is set to the UK and that the Code Page is set to 10000 Roman as a minimum (other code pages are usually selected but you will have to research those).

  6. I'm really very curious to know what the outcome of this event was. No really.
     
  7. Yep, good call, the "Fn" key could be stuck on.
     
  8. I copied and pasted the letters in.

    Most likely remapped, like litotes said, any ideas how to change it?
