Unwanted extra's when using @ and '

when I type in @ and ' I get the following

the brackets appear each time which means deleting the extra every time I use that key

any ideas

Sounds like something has fallen down between the keys. Turn it over and give it a good shake.

Hi, I think Tog_ is right, looks as if the two keys are sticking together, havn't spilt your coffee have you:-))

Coulc be somthing in the keyboard but you would also have to have shift held in to get the { with the first @,so maybe that stuck as well.

Problem solved my 41/2 year old daughter had dripped some red goo between the keys and as you almost all said - yes the keys were stuck together. the red goo has been there for some time and I had cleaned it up as best I could buton closer inspection notice a bridge between them - bah obvios when you look at it.

thanks for the replies
