Keyboard changing key configuration

I think I'm hitting a key combination that changes the keyboard configuration. asdf becomes aeou - it is really annoying. To resolve I currently save the doc or whatever I'm working on - happens in any program - close the program and restart. Is there a better way? What am I doing wrong?

The key combination you mention is Left Alt + Left Shift.
It changes the keyboard layout to the next one in the listed of available keyboard layouts.
To configure the layouts, go to Control Panel -> Regional and language settings -> Languages tab -> Details
Under Installed services, the keyboard layouts that are currently installed are listed.
If you don't need to change (is needed if you want to type norwegian for example, since it has some special characters), you can simply remove all unnecessary layouts.

Why did my enter key suddenly no longer function as to enter, when pressed it brings up a toolbar instead of taking to the next line?


your keyboard utilizes keys F1-F10 as re-programmable function keys.to change your current pofile press the razer lycosa logo+functon key(f1-f10) or you can reset your keyboard to factory default settings by pressing the "Razer Logo" button for 15 seconds while the Razer Lycosa is connected to a powered on computer. NB: ALL CONFIGURATION SETTINGS WILL BE LOST WHEN YOU RESET THE RAZER LYCOSA
TO FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS. ALL CONFIGURATION SETTINGS WILL NEED TO BE
RE-ENTERED OR LOADED FROM THE CONTROL PANEL AFTER THE RAZER LYCOSA IS RESET.

Cannot change the function on my keyboard back to a question mark


If you're on Windows then try pressing CTRL+SHIFT keys together (sometimes ALT+SHIFT, see which combination works for you) until your keyboard layout indicator in your system's notification area (bottom right part of your screen, just left of system clock) shows the keyboard layout code that you're used to, in your case "EN". You can cycle through all the installed keyboard layouts using this same key combination.

I have somehow hit a series of keys that has changed functions. When I hit "e" I get windows explorer. Have I changed from English to Dvorak? I can't find a solution.


The only situation, when windows explorer will open on pressing "E" is that when the "windows key" on keyboard is still pressed in otherwise there is no reason why windows explorer will open

You can always try to restore the computer to a previous state to resolve this issue, even though i think its not going to help in this situation.

A key (which one?) changes the letters all keys type


You're hitting SHIFT and CTRL -- which changes the keyboard input method, i.e., for French keyboard, or for DVORAK keyboard, or for Scandinavian keyboard.

Access CONTROL PANEL, and use REGIONAL settings to "uninstall" all keyboard-layouts that you _never_ use.

Keyboard `problem `strange `dash `appearing


Many programs extend the usefulness of the function keys by using key combinations. The most common combinations are Shift + a function key, Alt + a function key, and Crtl + a function key. These combinations can be very useful. For instance, in Microsoft Word, when any text is highlighted, pressing the Shift key plus the F3 key will change the case of the text from all caps, initial caps, to all lowercase. Shift + F7 will choose the Thesaurus command. These shortcuts allow you to access such functions with one keystroke rather than three or four mouse clicks.

Dell Latitude D610 keys don't work


Sorry to hear about your keyboard problem. Keyboards go bad and I don't really think it was a key combination or anything you did. I've replaced many, many keyboards in Latitude D610 machines and I can tell you that they do go bad after a while.

The good news is that if you want to replace it, you can find them on eBay or other sites at a reasonable price. Replacing one takes less than five minutes and all you need is a small flat head screwdriver.
