So shutdown - disconnect emachine connect borrowed keyboard - restart - test, and repeat with the second,

When your computer is hot especially when you have been using it for a long time (hours) keyboards tend to type wrong. This is due to heating up of circuits causing some small short-circuits. Better cool off your computer for an hour or so.

If it persists, check the fans inside your CPU. These may no longer working that caused heat to build up inside your computer. Fans can be found in your video card, your processor and at the back of your CPU.

    Dear dleahy,
    Just to clarify that I'm not talking about the keyboard heating up, it's the circuits in the mainboard (processor, video card area) I'm referring to. That's why I suggested there may be a problem with the fans inside the CPU. I just share this info based on my experience. The fan cooling my processor was not working and I got garbled characters typed despite changing the keyboard.

hi there
it sounds like your keyboard is set to a foreign language. if you look at the blue bar at the bottom of your screen on the right you will see a < symbol next to which (to the left) should be 2 letters, this should be EN if not double click the 2 letters then select english u.k. and then delete any other languages. restart your pc.
hope this helps
