    Please help me with this ....my little sister did something on her PC and now the keyboard does not work properly. When "a" is pressed "e" comes up, instead of "f" comes "s" and so on...

    She didn't spill anything on it, she said she turned off the PC in the night and in the morning when she turned it back on the keys were all messed up.

    Tried searching on google but didn't find any helpful advice from the so called "Techy forums"..

    Anyone ?

    Pick up your Keyboard and smash it as hard as you can. At least that's what I did when it happened to me :p

    Alt+Shift = nothing happens
    when pressing NumLock this " * " comes up and the NumLock led still stays on

    1. Open up the Control Panel. This can be done by either pressing win+r and typing "control" (without quotes) or going to My Computer and clicking "Control Panel" in the Other Places area on the left.

    2. Look for "Regional and Language Options." The categories are alphabetized, so finding it shouldn't be hard. Once you find it, double-click on it. A window should come up with the tabs "Regional Options," "Language Options," and "Advanced" at the top.
    3. 3
      Look in the "Regional Options" tab, you should find a pull down menu, some "samples," and another pull down menu. Make sure that both menus are set to your region's settings.
    4. 4
      Click on the "Customize" button next to the first pull down menu. Sometimes these settings can interfere with your keyboard.
    5. 5
      Make sure that, at the bottom of the "Customize" dialogue, your measurement system is set to whatever system your region uses. Once that tab in "Customize" is all set, move over to "Currency," "Time," and "Date," making sure that their settings are correct.
    6. 6
      Click "Apply" for both the Customize window and the Regional and Language Settings window.
    7. 7
      Test out the keys using a word processing program such as Notepad or MS Word. If the problem persists, it may be a hardware issue.
    ---------------------------------------------

    If it doesnt work, set your computer to a previous restore point. You can do it by - programs - accesories - system tools - system restore ... Set the time and date prior to the time your sister used the pc.

    Hope it helps.
