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.

Shift key not functioning.


You have selected the wrong keyboard language.
Go to Control Panel select Region and Language. Change the keyboard to your layout. (Probably US).

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.

Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

Symbols


You hit a keystroke combination. You'll have to press the Fn key in the lower left side of your keyboard and one of the special function keys (in a HP, I think it's something like F11 or F12--look at the symbols on the keyboard. Anyway, that combo locks the special characters on. Just hit it again to get back to normal typing.

Keyboard don-t show the correct symbols


Your keyboard setting in Control panel regional and language options is probably set to US International.
This option allow you to create every special character using combined keys see this page for MS instruction>
If you have a localized keybord (Portuguise, Brazilian or else) you can get the symbol corresponding with keys if you configure the exact keyboard instead of US international.
Of course for same language you can configure multiple keybord.
You can also use for every language the On screen Keyboard you get in Start/program/accessories/ accessibility

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.
