Vista Keyboard Bug

By jhawkins ·
In Vista occasionally the right hand side punctuation keys and the Right CTRL and ALT change their mapping for no reason without warning.

For Example...the ' key will give me an e with an accent over it and the Right CTRL and ALT don't work at all...the other punctuation keys also give me funky characters.

Yesterday as I was trying to post this...It was doing it in windows mail, but not in this windows(IE7).

I have had this problem on 2 Dell factory installed Vista Ultimate machines and 1 upgraded (recently downgraded) Alienware laptop. All have different keyboards

It will switch back without notice as well...

Check to see what languages have been installed. You may be activating another keyboard.
Go to the Control panel and select Regional and Language Options.
Under Keyboards and Languages select Change keyboards. It will show the langauges that are setup and under advanced key settings is the shortcut key to change between them. You can change them here.

I am trying to work out where this will end up. Either the poster has changed the original post or it's a TR problem. Checking the posters Profile he hasn't asked a question yet. But peconet and I have responded seperately to almost the same question.
Edit: sorry mate mispelled your name

OK poster asked the same question twice.
