    I have a HP ProBook 6550b laptop. It has the wide keyboard with the number keys on the right (as well as across the top row). The del key is also on the right. The del key has a period in what would normally be the shift or uppercase position. Whenever I try to delete a character it inserts a period instead of deleting. It will still do this regardless of whether number lock is on or off and regardless of whether shift is used or not.
    Does anyone know how I can get it to delete as it normally should??
    NOTE: A similar question to this was also posted by someone else in a previous thread but the solution offered, ie, toggling the number lock, did NOT work.
    Thanks
