Hi, sounds silly but wh€n I turn€d on this €v€ning my l€tt€r € com€s out as, w€ll its a bit obvious.

Probably a quick fix but just can't r€m€mb€r it right now, thanks in advanc€.

You may have pressed left alt and shift.
Try pressing them and see what happens.Not sure if this is the answer though.
Vista or xp?

Sorry, xp hom€, you gu€ss€d, that didn't work

  mrwoowoo 18:18 22 Jul 2008

Could be the Alt Gr key plus E to change it back.
( get there in the end) (o:!)

You can change your keyboard settings in control panel.Either under keyboard or the regional and language settings.

Just notic€d my Num Lock is on, turn€d that off but pr€ssing th€ ‘5th l€tt€r of th€ alphab€t’ turns it on again? Alt Gr +€ not fix€d it, obviously. Hav€ b€€n playing with all sorts of combo's of k€y p€rmutations for a whil€ now.

All s€tting in control pan€l and r€gional s€€m ok, sorry if this is hard g€ading.

What do you get when you type Ctrl+Alt+4 - that would normally be the € symbol

r€-ch€ck€d R€gional & languag€ options, any conn€ction with th€ fact that my n€w € k€y also turns on Num Lock aft€r €v€y tim€ I turn it off and hit that k€y again?

I g€t an €, I now hav€ two €'s on my k€yboard, gr€at, I'm not that k€€n on th€ €uro!
