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?

Re: Keyboard changing key configuration
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.

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.
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.
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
Try looking here to see if any of the keys are set wrong.
If you are then go to Control Panel.
1. Click on PRINTERS.
2. When the Printer Properties come up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the key to be setup.
Hope this helps. Bud
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.
